Still the best theme in regards to how it was made, how it’s one of the first pieces of electronic music ever, and how it’s (basically) the same theme still, 50 years later.

Incredible.

Vimes had never got on with any game more complex than darts. Chess in particular had always annoyed him. It was the dumb way the pawns went off and slaughtered their fellow pawns while the kings lounged about doing nothing that always got to him; if only the pawns united, maybe talked the rooks around, the whole board could’ve been a republic in a dozen moves.
Terry Pratchett, Thud (via still-intrepid)
When you are in the present without thinking, you are for the first time spiritual.
Osho (via mirroir)
Here in my head, language
keeps making its tiny noises.
How can I hope to be friends
with the hard white stars
whose flaring and hissing are not speech
but pure radiance?
How can I hope to be friends
with the yawning spaces between them
where nothing, ever is spoken?
Tonight, at the edge of the field,
I stood very still, and looked up,
and tried to be empty of words.
What joy was it, that almost found me?
What amiable peace?…
Once, deep in the woods,
I found the white skull of a bear
and it was utterly silent-
and once a river otter, in a steel trap,
and it too was utterly silent.
What can we do
but keep on breathing in and out,
modest and wiling, and in our places?
Listen, listen, I’m forever saying.
Listen to the river, to the hawk, to the hoof,
to the mockingbird, to the jack-in-the-pulpit-
then I come up with a few words, like a gift.
Even as now
Even as the darkness has remains the pure, deep darkness.
Even as the stars have twirled a little, while I stood here,
looking up,
one hot sentence after another.
Mary Oliver, Stars (via alongtimetoexist)

After dancing around it for a good long time, Barnes & Noble at last told me that they were going to “consider other applicants better suited for the position.”

I’D LIKE TO KNOW WHO THE FUCK IS BETTER SUITED TO A SHITTY MINIMUM-WAGE JOB IN YOUR BOOKSTORE THAN AN ENGLISH MAJOR WHO’S WORKED IN A LIBRARY FOR THREE YEARS

AND who demonstrated in the interview that her knowledge of books, music and pop culture is fucking encyclopedic thank you

I’m genuinely mad anyone who is better for this job than me is over-qualified
