in 7 years its going to be the 20s again so we can bring back swing music and the aesthetics of that era but keep modern values who’s with me
Just as long as in 17 years we do not bring back the Great Depression
Can we skip the 70’s too? At least the fashion?
My John Barrowman photo op. I asked to do the first photo and then left the area, he yelled out “Come back, hey Assgrabber come back!”
So I did, and then he scolded me for not squeezing hard enough and invited me to try again. Paid for one, got three.
Plus… John Barrowman’s ass.
Luckiest woman in the world?
GRAAARGH It looks like all the classes on copyright law/patent law are graduate classes, and limited to students actually already in the law school. T_T
I’M JUST AN UNDERGRADUATE SOPHOMORE, BUT I WANNA TAKE A CLASS TO SEE IF I’D ACTUALLY BE INTERESTED IN THIS IS THAT SO HARD TO ASK?
Would they maybe let you audit the class?
I never get tired of this photo.
Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at Mocambo because of her race. Then, one of Ella’s biggest fans made a telephone call that quite possibly changed the path of her career for good. Here, Ella tells the story of how Marilyn Monroe changed her life:
“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt… she personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him – and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status – that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.”
jesus christ this is so much better than all of the “you don’t have to be size zero!!!!!” and “i don’t mind living in a man’s world if i can be a woman!!!!!!!” bullshit related to marilyn monroe i see.
this is how to use your power for good
she was a good person.
and yea seriously ppl are so obsessed about how she wasn’t a size 0
YEAH WELL APPARENTLY SHE ALSO TRIED NOT TO BE A RACIST PIECE OF SHIT
WHICH IS SAYING A LOT
ABOUT SOMEONE FROM HER ERA.
(and way fucking more of a pressing matter than her weight my god)
Fun fact: Dustin Hoffman and Bob Hoskins decided secretly that they’d play Hook and Smee as a gay couple. When Spielberg, the director, found out, he was furious.
I just think it’s hilarious.
OH MY GOD
And everything makes so much sense now.
I ship it :-)
1920s - “So, what are we doing?” “Crime!”
After fighting in the trenches of the Great War, Malcolm Reynolds and Zoe Washburne open a restaurant in Manhattan. Serenity’s a bit dingy and a lot disreputable-looking, but it is a front for a speakeasy and other not-so-legal enterprises. Jayne Cobb’s intimidatin’ person makes public relations a breeze, and no one on the East Coast is half the getaway driver Hoban “Wash” Washburne is. Kaylee Frye’s young, but she’s a genius when comes to keeping Serenity running. Good thing too, no one else has a clue how restaurants and speakeasies work. Inara Serra lends the operation some respectability. Can’t be too bad a place if you’ve got a talented jazz singer, right? Things get a little complicated when the Tam siblings come crashing through with the Bureau of Investigation hot on their heels. Simon gave up a glittering surgical career to break River out of a fancy government-funded boarding school upstate. He says they were messing with her mind. Whether or not that’s true, she’s definitely a bit in the way of Zelda Fitzgerald. It’s a heap of trouble, but the crew doesn’t have to explain gunshot wounds to nosy nurses anymore. For some reason, Derrial Book’s hanging around, and he knows an awful lot about shady folk and their ways for a pastor. Not much they can do about that: the guy’s a real help. Still, it ain’t easy. Plans never go smooth and it’s a bit too easy to catch a bullet between the eyes, especially when everyone in town thinks you’re a man of honor in a den of thieves. But at the end of the day, after they’ve outrun cops and outgunned competition, they still got Serenity. It ain’t much, but it’s enough.
