Arctic Monkeys - Fluorescent Adolescent



You know all those wonderful Conservative parents who proceed to abandon, kick out, or cut off their children for any reason (including, but not limited to a child’s sexuality)?
Well here we go:

“But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”
1 Timothy 5:8 (NKJV)


Just one of those “tonne of bricks” kind of days.

That photo of fucking Lana del Rey wearing the war bonnet: no.
White girls on my Facebook using that photo as your cover shot: no.

Just be yourself, that’s really what it is. I mean I get it: black women are the strongest, most confident women in the world. Of course you want to emulate us. I get that. But at the same time, listeners will appreciate it more in the long run if you are just yourself. Eminem did it. He didn’t have to make a mockery of anyone. Beastie Boys did it. They didn’t have to make a mockery of anyone. If you want to treat it as an art form, then really treat it as an art form. Don’t use it as a gateway into a culture that you want to be a part of. Black culture is fun to the rest of the world and they all want to be a part of that, but there are certain things that are sacred to us and certain things that you will never be fully accepted into. That’s just my take on it. – Azealia Banks (via oate)

→ Indie Writers: Make MS Word Work for You Instead of Against You



This is really useful, and I’d also like to point out that Harmony Ink Press has been reblogging a lot of really interesting resources for aspiring writers. 

Or use Mellel, a superior program in every way, and if somebody insists that you send them a Word document, choose “export as .doc” from the pull-down; you never have to open Word again. Ever. You cannot even imagine the joy. I don’t get paid to say this, I’m sure nobody at Mellel has ever heard of me, but I’ve been using their program for years now and it has saved me all the headaches of that ever-popular pre-installed program that makes you shut off all the bells and whistles you never wanted in the first place. 

The great wisdom of John Darnielle is always appreciated.
