Some Victorian censorship

"He caught my hand in his, and devoured with kisses. His lips burnt me like fire. He twisted himself suddenly in the chair, and wound his arm round my waist. In the terror and indignation of the moment, vainly struggling with him, I cried out for help."

To whom it concerns, Darlene’s work will be late
It fell on her pancakes and stuck to her plate.
To whom it concerns, my mom made me write this
And I’m just a kid, so how could I fight this?
To whom it concerns, I lost my assignment
Maybe I’ll get lucky, solitary confinement.
To whom it concerns, Darlene’s great with a ball
But guys don’t watch tomboys when they’re cruising the hall.
To whom it concerns, I just turned thirteen
Too short to be quarterback, too plain to be queen.
To whom it concerns, I’m not made of steel
When I get blindsided, my pain is quite real.
I don’t mean to squawk, but it really burns.
I just thought I’d mention it, to whom it concerns.

Darlene Conner, Roseanne, "Brain-Dead Poets Society"

I’m an English professor and this is the best poem ive ever read

When her kiss transforms the Beast, she is furious.

"You should have warned me! Here I was smitten by an exceptional being, and all of a sudden, my fiance becomes an ordinary distinguished young man!"

the 1909 play Beauty and the Beast:  Fantasy in Two Acts by Fernand Noziere, the very first published version of the story where the Beauty is disappointed when the Beast transforms into a human at the end. (via corseque)

wow I never knew the name of this song….

i didnt either! i looked it up after i just heard it on radio. apparently it was so popular that it significantly boosted sales of saxophones, in what is known as the “baker street phenomenon.” it’s also credited with beginning the 80s obsession with sax solos, immortalized, for me at least, in rob lowe’s bad-boy sax player character in st. elmo’s fire.

also your dad

that is TOTALLY different. for instance, rob lowe up there would make a perfect halloween costume: bat tank, sax, cross earring, sweat. my dad would make a terrible halloween costume.

too late your dad is my halloween costume this year.

the most important thing is to wear sneakers with your professional/work clothes. and your button down should be short-sleeved.

the focal piece will be a framed copy of your sat scores

he took those down! i wasnt sure whether to be relieved or insulted. also taken down: my PSAT scores, a picture of me with Lady Glendening, and a big plaque that my sister won for being co-editor of the lit mag and that i was told also represented my winning the same award several years later.

luckily, “my” “bedroom” still has a framed copy of my 1st place in the middle school science fair, which is really what i’m proudest of.
