"This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have."

In 1944 a children’s book club sent a volume about penguins to a 10-year-old girl, enclosing a card seeking her opinion.

She wrote, “This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have.”

American diplomat Hugh Gibson called it the finest piece of literary criticism he had ever read.

a while ago i was trying to write post-IF fic where everything was sad and everyone ran away and/or died after Mukuro set them up in a little base and ran off to take down SHSL Despair without putting them in the line of fire

and i could never figure out just how i wanted to get from point A to point B so the whole thing is in chunks but there are some very good snippets in here like

The gap is so obvious that nobody thinks of it except for Leon, though not until half a week later when he slips out the trapdoor above the bathroom.

He is far less methodical: in the middle of the afternoon, “Kuwata-chi’s been in there forever, I’ve gotta go!” turns into “H-he must have fallen in!”

Kyouko pinches her forehead and breathes heavily in and out.

 “Maybe we ought to hope Ikusaba doesn’t come back.” Byakuya folds his arms over his chest. “What was it she said before she left—stick together? What a fantastic job we’ve done at that. Really. Congratulations.”

“If you start clapping, I’ll fucking smash your face in,” says Mondo. Byakuya refolds his arms.

i know i dont blog about #dangan ronpa much anymore, but, “here i dreamt i was an architect” is a really sad song for mukuro

THIS HAS BEEN IN MY LIKES FOR MONTHS AND MONTHS BECAUSE I WAS LIKE OKAY, I DON’T HAVE TIME TO LISTEN TO THIS SONG, BUT I’LL SAVE IT FOR LATER SO I CAN, BUT IT GOT BURIED AND VERY RECENTLY I UNEARTHED IT AND I AM LISTENING TO THIS SONG RIGHT NOW AND I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY

FUCK YOU

happy 4/13 I hope you like your comics full of nudity and without context

ps this comic is in actuality just a long excuse to have john draw nipples on davesprite

i am the Puns Girl at work and there’s one guy at the deli in particular who gets told ALL OF MY JOKES because i was told he was a fan of Jokes and so we’ve become buds

and today i walked by on my way out and i leaned on the deli counter and i said, dismayed, “i have no easter puns!!”

and he goes “none?!” and i lean on the counter and put my head on my hands and gaze away towards the wall and sigh

"i’m really falling short of everyone’s eggspectations”

AND LOOK BACK AT HIM AND GRIN AND HE FUCKING LOSES IT, LAUGHS REALLY LOUDLY ENOUGH TO TURN RED

WELL PLAYED

I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING”

AGAINST THE SUN (listen; art credit)

BREATH OF LIFE; florence + the machine
     i was looking for a breath of life
     a little touch of heavenly light
     but all the choirs in my head sang no

WHO WE ARE; imagine dragons
     we were never welcome here at all
     it’s who we are
     doesn’t matter if we’ve gone too far

DESTROYA; my chemical romance
     they don’t believe in us
     but i believe we’re the enemy
     so show me what you got
     you children of the gun

PARIS IS BURNING; st. vincent
     we have taken to the streets
     in open rejoice revolting
     we are dancing a black waltz
     fair paris is burning after all
     dance fair paris to the ground

BOTTOM OF THE RIVER; delta rae
     the wolves will chase you by the pale moonlight
     drunk and driven by a devil’s hunger
     don’t you lift him, let him drown alive
     the good lord speaks like a rolling thunder

GOD'S GONNA CUT YOU DOWN; johnny cash
     you can run on for a long time
     sooner or later god’ll cut you down

TOUCHED; vast
     i’ll never find someone quite like you again
     the demi-gods and hungry ghosts
     god, god knows i’m not at home

THE ENDING; ellie goulding
     i think i’ve been praying
     the lights won’t go out
     there won’t be anything to hold onto
     there won’t be anyone in the end

DANIEL IN THE DEN; bastille
     and you thought the lions were bad?
     well, they tried to kill my brothers
     felled in the night by the ones you think you love

FEATHER ON THE CLYDE; passenger
     well god knows that i’ve failed
     but she knows that i’ve tried
     and i think of you in glasgow
     ’cause you’re all that is warm in my restless heart

‘Hello I Love You’ by Ima Robot
just callin’ to let ya know that i love you so and now i’ll let ya go
