There needs to be a code word or something that means “my brain is fighting me every step of the way today and I feel like I’m going to vibrate out of my skin, so I need you to forgive everything and go slowly and speak softly and lower your expectations.” And then we could all just be like, “I know I said we could go to a movie tonight but… tangerines.” And the other person would nod and squeeze your elbow or rub your head and you wouldn’t feel like a failure.
Oh heavens, this is PERFECT. Amazing noir-themed 2007 photoshoot by national treasure Annie Liebovitz for Vanity Fair, and featuring a whole slew of my favorite actors. Talk about writing prompts. (I’m shipping the Angelica Huston & Sharon Stone characters).
A few more images here.
Oh my god. This is amazing. I want this magazine. Where are they hiding the magazine? Gimmie. GIMMIE.
That first shot gives me chills. CHRIST. Helen Mirren as a mob boss and Judy Dench as her longtime society girlfriend. I want that movie so goddamned bad.
Reblogging this post of mine from ages ago, because for some reason it’s blown up overnight and now I’m finally getting a bit of the ficcish speculation I was originally looking for. Yes, mob boss Helen Mirren with girlfriend Judi Dench! Also, ANGELICA HUSTON/SHARON STONE as sinister society matrons!
I love this photoset so much. #4, woman on the left? Rinko Kikuchi! I love it even more now.
been feeling kind of paranoid lately
Take that time by yourself to get to know yourself and rediscover what makes you shine. Don’t surrender yourself to waiting, and don’t stay isolated for too long, because there’s a beautiful you the world is dying to meet.
tHIS ONE’S CUTE TOO;;;
I’m never gonna finish this lol
About a year ago I did Mass Effect pixels/animations for fun… I never finished Shepard or Grunt (they were gonna be standing off in that empty space to the right) so have Mordin by himself
A lot of people learn to put a before words that star with consonants and an before words that start with vowels, but it’s actually more complicated than that. The actual rule is that you use a before words that start with a consonant sound and an before words that start with a vowel sound.
- Tom waited for an hour.
- Monica was on a historic expedition.
An hour is correct because hour starts with a vowel sound. People seem to most commonly get tripped up by words that start with the letter h and u because sometimes these words start with vowel sounds and sometimes they start with consonant sounds. For example, it is a historic expedition because history starts with an h sound, but it is an honorable fellow because honorable starts with an o sound.
- Tom had a Utopian idea,
- Monica reminded him it’s an unfair world.
The letters o and m can be tricky too. Usually you put an before words that with o, but sometimes you use a. For example, you would use a if you were to say, “She has a one-track mind,” because one-track starts with a w sound.
- Tom wants to work as a missionary.
- Monica wants to get an MBA.
REMINDER: The sound governs whether you use a or an, not the first letter of the word. (Fogarty 6).
