'I think about what I’d think of my decisions when I’m 80 looking back, and it helps me make sound, responsible choices.' - Taylor Swift

(If you are a band following me in the hopes I will check out your music, I'm sorry but I probably won't. I don't mean to be rude. I usually find new music through NME Radio.)

Sang froid and Equanimity. Grace under pressure.

'Fill the unforgiving minute...'.

'Oh, Maya says I'm lacking in depth,
I will do my best' - The Strokes

'You're all Chrome' - Heads Will Roll - Yeah Yeah Yeahs

'The ballad of a dove. Go with peace and love.' - The Band Perry

'Excuse me if I spoke too soon
My eyes have always followed you around the room' - NGHFB

'Take my hand, knot your fingers through mine / And we'll walk from this dark room for the last time' - Open Your Eyes - SP

'Shut your eyes, I spin the big chair / And you'll feel dizzy, light, and free / And falling gently on the cushion / You can come and sing to me' - Shut Your Eyes - SP

'Come to me. Just in a dream. Come on and rescue me' - Madness - Muse

Desire leads to SUFFERING.

'The whole of life becomes an act of letting go but what always hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye.' - Life of Pi

"Everybody dies sooner or later.
Don’t worry about your death.
Worry about your life.
Take charge of your life for as long as it lasts."

David Yates’ most vivid memory of Emma is watching her suddenly let go of her steely professionalism and for once just be young and free. They were filming a death scene from Hallows Part 2 on a freezing-cold beach in Wales. The actors were miserable, especially Emma, who hates the cold and dislikes getting wet even more. But out of nowhere, he recalls, “she ran into the icy water and stood there, holding herself against the waves with her arms outstretched, just laughing.” In that brief moment he got a sense of what it must be like to have a multibillion-dollar industry dependent on your every move and be only nineteen years old. - Vogue, July 2011

prmartyls:

By far the stupidest criticism of the new Thor is ‘no where in Norse mythology is Thor a woman, stop messing with mythology.’

Right, because Norse mythology is just fucking filled with stories about Thor hanging out with Iron Man and Captain America at the Avengers Tower.
