"No one who had ever seen Catherine Morland in her infancy would have supposed her born to be a heroine. […] But from fifteen to seventeen she was in training for a heroine; she read all such works as heroines must read to supply their memories with those quotations which are so serviceable and so soothing in the vicissitudes of their eventful lives."

"Precious stones hold the stories of continents, oceans, and cultures"— Read the article online!
The article highlights 5 gemstones and weaves together their formation with cultural stories that have been created about the stones. For instance, did you know Middle Ages fables say that diamonds were “guarded by venomous creatures who wounded themselves on the stones’ sharp crystalline points, saturating them with venom” (WHAT?! Awesome.)
Many thanks to my AD Len Small for this super fun project!

Give me the child. Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child that you have stolen.
Odysseus, on his journey home to Ithaca, was visited by a ghost. The ghost tells him that once he reaches his home, once he slays all his enemies, and sets his house in order he must do one last thing before he can rest. Ghost tells him to pick up an oar, walk inland, and keep walking until somebody mistakes that oar for a shovel. For that will be the place that no man had ever been troubled by the sea, and that’s where he’d find peace. In the end, that’s all I want. To walk away from the sea and find some peace.
i’m going to make a blog called so-unrelatable and i’m just going to go through really obscure tags reblogging things like “does anyone else hate it when you’re going antiquing and you drop your vibrator into a priceless arabesque vase and the entire table starts bumpin and you just gotta be like Oh My God These Antiques Are Haunted”

↳ "I’m so scared, and I want to know what it’s like to be seventeen, or twenty-five, you know? But what if we can get through this? And there’s life on the other side? If there is, I want to be here, with you. This is how I wanna live. And if all this isn’t here, and you don’t survive, then I don’t wanna live at all. "
In this new rendition of “The Moon Song,” Karen O is joined by Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig. “I wrote the song as a duet,” Karen O explained. “I was really excited at the prospect of getting to record it with a male vocalist. Ezra was super cool and open, he slipped into character like a champ and damn he’s got the goods.”
A special three-song EP of “The Moon Song” arrives this week on iTunes.

"The piano duet wasn’t in the script, and it wasn’t even my idea! When I first went to New York to meet with Philip Glass I asked him to create a song [India and Charlie] could play together for that scene. And he said, "Well, I’ve got to know what kind of scene it is for me to write it." So we’re saying, it’s a piano performance, but it’s actually sex. And he said, "Oh, I got it. I once made a piece called Four Hands, a married couple were playing it and one day the husband said, while we can play it like this, we can also play it like this [mimes the man putting his arm around the woman to reach the other side of the keyboard.] Right away that night, I changed the script to have Charlie’s arm going around India." - Park Chan-wook
