“I love tattooed women, maybe because they are uncontrollable, they are themselves to the point of drawing symbols of their power on their skin. Talk about owning your own body, being in your body, claiming yourself. I love it. When the world is in an uproar over whether women should have a choice or not when it comes to their own bodies, being tattooed is one of the most visible choices of all.”—Margaret Cho (via onehundreddollars)
“I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships, forced interactions or unnecessary conversations. If we don’t vibrate on the same frequency there’s just no reason for us to waste our time. I’d rather have no one and wait for substance than to not feel someone and fake the funk.”—Joquesse Eugenia (via rsvnr)
“You are still going to live a long time…and it would be a shame if you did not take the opportunity to revolutionize your life and move into an entirely new realm of experience.”—Chris McCandless (via eiliv)
I am picking up a 1969 Honda CB350 on Saturday. It’s a basket case and its going to take a shit ton of money and work.. But I need to do something “revolutionary” with my life right now.
Don’t get too upset with people for confusing the two of these. I just want to put it out there that Frankenstein’s monster is not Boris Karloff or a member of the Musters family. That is Hollywood’s green, brain dead oaf they created. (Which is why so many people mix up Dr. Frankenstein and his creation.) If anything, get upset with Universal and Hollywood for dumbing down and mass producing an incredibly deep and complex character created by Mary Shelley. This is what society has clung on to. To dive deeper into this, research Universal Horror and read the Foreword of Frankenstein by Walter James Miller.
"None of these modern icons can be found in Shelley’s novel, and worse yet, they all downgrade and pervert her meaning. While she raised a horror story to the level of intellectual fiction, Whale and the writer Robert Florey (Whose work Whale co-opted without credit) demoted it back down to almost pure horror." -Walter J. Miller.
Imagine what would happen if everyone on Tumblr reblogged one post and added the name of the saddest song that depresses them the most until we eventually compiled a list of music equivalent to the lethal injection.
But honestly, if there’s two girls walking down the street, one with nice smokey eyes and a classy red lipstick and another with shoved up hair and no makeup, you’re going to be looking at the one who made an effort, and if boys do prefer natural girls, why is it always the girls who wear the most makeup who actually get the boyfriends?
