The Glow Pt. 2 - The Microphones
I could not get through September without a battle
I faced death
I went in with my arms swinging
but I heard my own breath
I had to face that I’m still living
in “accidents and stars” there’s this running thing of people asking EBW how the hell she got the money to purchase a building, refurbish it, and equip it for time travel and she answers all kinds of ridiculous things and people also posit rumors they’ve heard which range from “started a marxist-utopian grassroots movement” to “gave every single member of the chicago mob head” and at last Irving sits her down and demands to know the real story and the real story is long but I promise it’s worth it here it is in direct quotation
I just have this conversation in my head where somebody brings up Macklemore and EBW is like “we do not speak that name in this house” because she fucking loathes him so Ida and Gigi immediately turn and have a short conversation right in front of her during which they use “Macklemore” as a noun, a verb, an adjective, a modifier and a dangling participle and she’s just glaring at them b/c they’re being ornery at her but also that’s literally exactly what she would do in that situation so it’s not like she has any right to get mad
I’m a senior and I’m playing college on expert
Red? I think it’s red.
I basically did this once and it’s how I got pink eye.
I can’t tell if you’re making a pun or if you’re telling an actual story.
Either way, I’m still laughing.
THIS WAS ME ALL LAST WEEK
(Disclaimer: I love Capaldi)
Sleepyhead // Passion Pit
"Like stars burning holes right through the dark
Flickering fire like saltwater into my eyes.”
so then when “Sleepyhead” came on everyone got really activated, this was before it was super overplayed and it was like the big song of that autumn on alt radio. And one of the guys stopped for a sec and motioned to me and said “You dance, chica!” and I was like “me?” because I was a super-nerdy 15 year old and I thought he obviously did not mean me but then he kept smiling at me and waving me in and finally I went to go forward but the crowd had gotten in my way a little bit so just as that bit kicked in after the choruses, the really good-feeling bit that sounds like zippers sliding up and down, he grabbed my hand and pulled me into the circle. And I am not a good dancer, but something about that song made me feel so good and free and I danced my heart out and I know it sounds super corny but that was the first time I ever looked at the people around me—even though they were strangers—and said these are my people. I belong. And that right then was the best feeling in the world.
