I feel your pain :/

I am glad I’m not the only one. Linguistic and cultural anthro at the same time must be rough. We can do it! Hopefully!

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

For sale: totally not haunted, we promise. Like we pinky swear. No wailing child ghosts. No endless walls of text about the coming of the end times appearing on chalk boards when you turn your back. No creepy singing. Totally cool.

Tarot - Strength, The High Priestess, The Chariot, Temperance

"Monster" is derived from the Latin noun monstrum, "divine portent," itself formed on the root of the verb monere, "to warn." It came to refer to living things of anomalous shape or structure, or to fabulous creatures like the sphinx who were composed of strikingly incongruous parts, because the ancients considered the appearance of such beings to be a sign of some impending supernatural event. Monsters, like angels, functioned as messengers and heralds of the extraordinary. They served to announce impending revelation, saying, in effect, "Pay attention; something of profound importance is happening."

Practical Magic (1998)

Everything about this movie is absolutely gorgeous.

I cry for that house.

Do you know any poetry books that deal with being bi?

bisexual-books:

We know lots of collections by bi poets, and many of them touch on the topic of being bi. I’m a big fan of The Horizontal Poet by Jan Steckel and Sarah gave a glowing review to Jimmy’s Blues and Other Poems by James Baldwin. When We Were Weavers is an anthology about several queer women’s experiences, but “Rumors” by Natalie J. Byers and several poems by Laura Madeline Wiseman were prime examples of poetry about being bisexual. Wiseman’s has another book, Sprung, which was nominated for a Lambda in Bisexual Literature. I’ve not read it yet, but it’s on my short list. Finally, Good Sense and Faithless by Michelle T. Clinton has many poems about her experiences as a bisexual black woman, especially the poem “Politics of the Bisexual Deep Fry.”

I found a ghost town while driving though the midwest. I spent the day wading through dead grass and exploring the vacant homes.  A rusty water tower lay on the outskirts of the town and the yards were littered with old cars.

 New life took over the town.  Birds had built nests in many of the homes and there was a dead lamb in one.  As it grew dark it began to rain.  I picked the house with the cleanest bed and slept inside as I listened to rain drip through holes in the ceiling and patter on the roof.  I woke up early to the sounds of raccoons near me on the stairs.
