Short answer: lots of characters from lots of places, huge, huge scale, like, even bigger than the long version of my answer I’m putting beneath this cut.
“Oh God, what are you, twelve?”
I laughed. Sounds like they will have a good rapport.
And I really like their descriptions – him being good at stuff but not so sure about who he is so that’s he reacting (vs. proactive?) and the whole bit about him becoming an accomplished liar though perhaps he isn’t proud of it? Maya seems to have more heightened drama around her but also knows who she is? (Which would make sense as she’s had a decade more to accumulate as such…)
If you had your choice of any guy, who would it be? [x]
And Holland Roden is, once again, the best.
tidalrace replied to your photo “01. a song that makes you want to fall in love Creature Fear :: Bon…”My favorite songs have so many compatriots, I couldn’t make a list like this. There’s be five songs for every category. And then it’d change depending on whether or not I’ve discovered something else. I have wide ranging music tastes.
Yeah, this is really just, “the first songs I came across in my iTunes that fit the description”. Though my music tastes aren’t very wide-ranging, really. They’re basically, Barenaked Ladies, and Songs I Heard On TV Shows And Movies That I Liked, and Songs My Friends Put On Mix CDs For Me Because They’re Much Cooler Than I Am. :-)
#I can never do the music related memes #because I really just don’t care that much about music #really the only time I listen to it is when I’m in the car going places #and then I leave it on one radio station #(AFN if you’re curious cuz it’s the only one that speaks English so I can understand the news) (via amberlikethestone)
I’m cracking up. THAT IS ME. Right down to mostly only listening to music in the car, and leaving the radio on AFN all the time, since I also live overseas. :-) I mean, I do care about music in that I like it, and I love singing along with songs I know, but I am not a music person the way some people are. I have a few artists I like and I will listen to the same songs or CDs or playlists over and over and over again until I drive my family crazy. I don’t seek out new music, at all. I only stumble across it or have it forced upon me.
Yep that’s me too, right down to not seeking out new music. I love soundtracks from tv shows and movies because I get a mix of music, and yes, I’ll play the same cd over and over again, especially soundtracks BECAUSE it’s not all the same artist, so it doesn’t end up getting old for me. I have the soundtracks for the first three seasons of Grey’s Anatomy that I love to just play over and over again.
You guys, this FASCINATES me. I think most especially the not seeking out new music, because I loooooove finding new music to groove to.
My mom was this way, though: she listened to the same albums over and over (and OVER) again. And my dad was always listening to “teaching tapes” (he is a pastor). He would listen to new music, but it was always worship music (learning songs for when he also had to lead the music) and wow, it just now occurs to me that basically he was just always working. (Except this one time? They bought a Whitney Houston album. The power of the Whitney.)
My problem with playing an album endlessly is that it gets tethered to a specific time in my life and then it’s like getting in a wayback machine every listen. Hence, the need for new tunes.
Pre-falling down the rabbit hole that is Tumblr and rediscovering my fangirl roots (which led me to start making fanmixes and yeah, now I am monster that cannot be stopped…), the number one way I found new music was if it was featured in a television show. (Veronica Mars had the BEST MUSIC!)
The Rumpus Interview With Rainbow RowellI used to answer all my emails before I wrote. Now that my books are being published in other countries, the emails have multiplied. So now if I answer my emails first, I’ll be emailing for six hours at least. Just in the last month or so, I’ve decided to write first. All of the emails are about my books, and I feel like the people emailing want me to continue writing. Someone told me Stephen King does this, actually. It’s been amazing.
"I’d like to have a career like Neil Gaiman so I could do something else and my audience would follow wherever I go, or I could find a new audience."
I would read Rainbow’s grocery store lists. (Not in a creepy way. Unless there really isn’t a non-creepy way to read somebody’s shopping lists. In which case, sorry, I would read them anyway. And I am sure they would be delightful and illuminating.)
how come every vampire in vampire stories is a hundred years old tho why cant we get a newbie vampire like
"how long have you been 17"
“about a year and a half actually its kinda trippy”
you know what would be cool? a show about, like, vigilante Victorian prostitutes hunting down Jack the Ripper.
They never did figure out why he stopped killing. And most serial killers don’t stop unless they are stopped. I’m just saying.
