Ask me anything   personal   reading notes   jamz   significant gifs   lyrical comparisons   

not reticent, I'm Renaissance.
quasi-academic. too old for Tumblr.
some people call me Laura. some people call me Lola. other people call me other things.
ambivalent about most things. enthusiastic about food, reception studies, Pretty Little Liars & women musicians of the 1990s & early 2000s.

Two beatnik babes at a rave on Eel Pie Island, Twickenham in a photo dated August 31 1960. This photo is my new party-spiration. 

I will always feel ambivalent about the Beat Generation as a literary movement while unabashedly striving for “beatnik babe” as a personal (life)style.

    "And I’m starting to think it could happen to me like it did to you / And I’m starting to feel it actually seep through the / Slick divide now / I won’t crack the door too far for anyone who’s pushing too hard on me." - Liz Phair, 1994

really pleased to see my cis feminist friends and tweeters standing up against this transphobic crap from petticoatfair, and participating in the public shaming.  Transgender women are women, and deserve to shop in peace, and to have access to a good fitting, especially since we’re likely to have unusual/non-standard sizes, which is what this place supposedly excels at. 
And, reading their non-apology, it’s clear that this poisonous attitude extends to women who’ve had mastectomies as well, wtf.

ugh that fauxpology is so gross

That is NOT an APOLOGY!!!!! UGH!!!

    I have never been so excited about doing my textbook adoptions.

    and when I saw the “category” listings for these books… well, obviously we could/will just spend a whole day on that. and I could write a book on book categorizations… which I am sort of doing…

    this is literally my favourite thing its like feminist khaleesis singing fleetwood mac in a country style whilst being whimsically medieval in cgi landscapes 

    this video follows the plot of Stephen King’s Drawing of the Three. 

    also I am ALL ABOUT the early 2000s eye makeup.

    I still can’t decide which is better, If I Were a Carpenter (the 1994 various artists tribute to the Carpenters) or I’m Your Fan (the 1991 various artists tribute to Leonard Cohen). they are just both. so. good. I cannot recommend either one highly enough, provided you enjoy ’90s alternative song stylings or have any appreciation at all for the songwriting genius of the Carpenters or Leonard Cohen.
