My headcanon has a mixed-race Cecil covered in scars instead of the fandom pressured tattoos and third eye which he’s not described with at all in the show because he lives in Night Vale. There’s rabid dogs, pterodactyls, and killer librarians in this town. He’s also wearing a shirt with a collar & tie printed on it since Night Vale is too hot and messy for fancy suits: It rains animal carcasses and grey ooze spurts out of clocks. Whether that’s a kilt or a skirt is up to interpretation.

The bottom are just some practice sketches of different Cecil interpretations from other fans and cosplayers~

I like your headcanon. Very well thought out.

Culinary Classics of Crypto-Lesbian Fiction: Fried Green Tomatoes

image

My favorite lesbian movie, Fried Green Tomatoes, is not even technically a lesbian movie.Technically it’s a movie about two women who live together, raise a child together, defend and love each other, and have sexually-charged food fights in a Totally Heterosexual way. The relationship is a lot less subtextual in the book (although it’s never actually spelled out in the book either, you’ll have to read fanfiction for that), but I’ll always love the movie all the same. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen it over the years, as it was a regular feature in the network TV Saturday Afternoon movie line-up throughout my own formative years. It’s also probably the only queer film you can comfortably watch with your foot-washing Baptist granny. While the queer aspect may have been covert, the relationship between Idgie and Ruth was a strong, positive and beautiful one which made a big impression on my own burgeoning yet equally subtextual queer identity. Before I even could fully articulate why, I thought the picnic scene where Idgie pulls out fresh honeycomb from the hive for Ruth was one of the most romantic scenes in film. All I want is someone who is willing to stick their whole arm in a tree full of bees for me. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?

From a girl who loves to cook

whyvoneenee:

You know, for so long we have said to girls, “you need to learn to cook so you can get a husband.” And that’s not only completely unfair (I think you’ve heard this side already), but it’s also ruined cooking for a lot of people. There are people that bash on women cooking because they think it’s a part of that submissive role. There are people that see a woman who likes to cook and say “you’re gonna be a good wife” when that has nothing to do with it. It’s like what we’ve done to the color pink. And have you ever thought about how crazy it is that we could take a God-made color or a skill that’s needed for survival and relegate it to a certain gender?

I feel like we need to say to the ladies (and men, and everyone else) of the future generation, “you need to learn how to cook because one day you’ll be sitting in your living space and you’ll say ‘I’m hungry but I don’t want to order out’.” We should be teaching people these things for life skills. Cooking. And fixing cars. And doing laundry. And basic plumbing. Gender not included.

Agreed!

My mother taught both me and my brother how to cook and how to sew because they are useful skills. My dad taught us how to build things and that eye protection is essential when using power tools.

Star Trek was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins to not just tolerate, but take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in life forms.

So, brokenponycutiemark did the "publicly say five positive things about yourself" meme and, while I am not one for the chain letter type of things, I am all for positive thinking.

So I’m doing it. Write one if you like. If you don’t, I hope you think positive things about yourself anyway because apparently I turned into a Hufflepuff at some point when I wasn’t looking. Anyway.

1) I have quite a good memory when I focus. One of my professors once called it “incredible recall.” It’s the reason I could directly quote Shakespeare for college essays that weren’t open book.

2) I am rather physically strong. In fact, if I have to think of a favorite thing about my body, it’s that I can heft my bicycle without a problem and carry it home if it gets a flat. I really like that about myself. I don’t know why.

3) I am a good cook (something nishikadochan and koiyake can attest to)

4) I do my best to be kind. I cannot say I am always kind, but I try to be.

5) I give excellent hugs.

DYING.

I stumbled across this song - it’s a bonus track on the Much Ado About Nothing soundtrack. It’s bloody hilarious.

Lyrics:

[spoken]
Catherine: How long is this gonna take?
David: Here we go!
Catherine: Don’t make me do this.
David: Oh, you’re gonna love it!

[sung]
David: We’re like a branch and its vine
Catherine: Like a drunk and his wine
David: Like the leaves and the breeze
Catherine: Fatty food and disease
David: And like a sheep and a lamb
Catherine: Like a pig and a ham
David: We go together —

[spoken]
Catherine: Can I go now? …can I just…?

[sung]
David: Just like Shakespeare and verse
Catherine: Like a corpse and a hearse
David: Like a song and a dance
Catherine: Like the English and France
David: Like a Persian and rugs
Catherine: Like a headache and drugs
Both: We go together, you and I
David: We go together like the news and the weather
We fit like hand in glove
Catherine: For now and forever
David: Just like birds of a feather
We fly so high above
We stick together like the earth and the sun
Catherine: Like a dentist and fun
David: We go like honey and bees
Catherine: Like a mold on a cheese
David: And like a bird and its nest
Catherine: Like a clown and depressed
Both: We go together, you and I

[spoken]
David: Wait for it, wait for it!
[horn solo. At the end David stops and gasps for breath]
Catherine: *What* was THAT?!
David: That was me playing with my old horn!
Catherine: Oh. Shouldn’t you wait ‘til I’ve gone?
David: Ah, feels so good to hold it again!
Catherine: Well, you’ve not had it out in ages!
David: D’you want a go with it?
Catherine: I’m not putting that in my mouth!

[sung]
Catherine: We go together and we know that whatever
We’re stuck like nails and glue
David: There’s nothing can sever
Such a well-made endeavour as me —
Catherine: — And me
David: — And you
Catherine: I guess it’s true
We’re like a yawn and a dream
David: Like a cherry on cream
Catherine: Like the wind and a kite
David: Now you’ve got it, all right!
Catherine: We’re like a parent and child!
David: Like a — sorry, what?!
Catherine: We go together, you and I
David: You and me
Catherine: We go together, me and you
David: That’s right, we do!
Both: We go together… you and I!

[spoken]
David: Ah! See, I told you you’d enjoy yourself!
Catherine: Yeah! …It’s smaller than I thought, though.
David: …Are you still talking about my horn?
Catherine: Yup.
