This isnt even a half bad idea

Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow , for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.
Hey everybody, first original post in a while.
Last year I started a blog where I publish short stories. One or two every month or so (I’m committed, I swear), and just now I posted to latest one.
If you like the story, I’d encourage you to share the site and any stories you like.

Sarah Larson on discovering the music of Devon Sproule: http://nyr.kr/1tRGo2y
“Who was this? It wasn’t a revolutionary sound—it amazed me because it was great. An acoustic guitar, and then a young woman’s voice, warm, confident, gentle, singing, ‘It’s good to get out of the house.’ There was no barrier between it and me—I loved it immediately.”

I read this and immediately looked up her music. Best choice I’ve made in the past hour. Friedrichshain’s streets will rain with the sounds of this from my balcony tonight.
The hours between 12am and 6am
have a funny habit of making you feel
like you’re either on top of the world,
or under it.

i love cinematography more than i love my own family so here’s a list of 50 incredibly beautiful movies!! some of them are fantastic, some are so bad the cinematography barely redeems them, but they’re all worth watching. i tried to find the most high-quality streaming links available, but if you have a problem with shitty video quality you should probably just rent the dvd like a law-abiding citizen.

If you are still looking for the song of the summer, STOP LOOKING. I have found it for you.
- Her name is Kiesza. She is Canadian.
- She is a classically trained ballet dancer.
- She was a codebreaker in the Canadian Navy.
- The song is called Hideaway. It is the jam to end all jams.
- The song is bringing back C+C Music Factory 90s house realness.
- This is going to be huge.
Y’all take care.
So I knew 10 seconds into this song I was going to reblog it.
Holy shit that was good!
Dance videos. Always.

We partnered with Lucasfilm and YouTube on a trip back to Tatooine’s favorite hive of scum and villainy. Featuring in order Chris Daughtry, Ben Folds, Liz Phair, Reggie Watts, Mark McGrath, Jordin Sparks, Rick Springfield, Weird Al, Lisa Loeb, and mc chris.
Of course, with all these awesome performers, we have a lot of extra jokes. Like six videos worth of jokes. Watch to find out the real reason the cantina doesn’t serve droids, why the sand people are so chill, and how Boba Fett survived the Sarlacc.
Exceptionally awesomely amazing
