“I just think it’s such an amazing thing to be able to tell stories and tell people’s stories. And I hope one day that I’m lucky enough to be in the kind of show that raises awareness about something. I think it’s a really important medium to make people think about things in a different way.”

Wedding Ensemble 
1878
While white is now de rigueur for bridal attire, the fashion for white wedding gowns originated only in the late 19th century and was not commonplace until the 20th century. This dress is a good example of the more practical 19th century practice of brides wearing colored gowns for weddings. The wedding dresses could then be worn again for other receptions and social events. A well-made and finely-detailed example of the period, this dress would have been described as a “cuirass” or “cuirass style” at the time it was made, a term that refers to the form-fitted bodice. A steel-boned corset helped to achieve the ideal figure for the cuirass style in the 1870s and 1880s.

Great DBZ Cosplay - Part 2

(via favoritezipper)

Unless I write “and then his Galaxy 4’s battery died” no one can ever get lost, forget an important fact, meet a partner outside of a dating site, or do anything that doesn’t eventually have them picking up a phone. So I’m stuck writing about an era where Ethan Hawke was considered the pinnacle of manliness.

Robert Lanham on not being able to write fiction set after 2002, Your Phone Is Ruining You For Us - The Awl (via housingworksbookstore)

This is such an interesting and terrifying point.

LMFAO Seriously?  I can’t even get my thoughts together to express how many things are wrong with this.

Perhaps they don’t have service, or at least not enough to get the maps app to load properly.  Perhaps they don’t even have a smartphone, because not everybody does, you classist fuck.  Perhaps they’re just shit at reading maps, so they keep thinking they’re going the right way according to the map they pulled up, only to realize, no, that wasn’t it either.  Perhaps they’re alone in their car and so they can only take quick glances at their phone so it’s really fucking hard to read their directions and they get lost anyway because they missed a step or didn’t realize that was their exit until they were past it.  

Perhaps they don’t keep lists of shit to do on their phone.  Perhaps they don’t have a hyper-developed “let me ask the internet!” reflex when confronted with the unknown.  Perhaps they forgot to set a reminder for some important thing.  Perhaps they were so sure they’d remember they didn’t bother to make a note of it.  Perhaps, again, they don’t have signal.  Perhaps they’re just shit at looking things up on the internet and give up in frustration after a moment or two.

Perhaps they don’t even do dating sites.  Perhaps they just take their fucking phone with them while they’re out and about and meet people in other places, while carrying the phone, but not actively being on it.  (Honestly, wtf was dating sites even doing on a list like this?  Like they’re an intrinsic part of the smartphone user experience?)

Basically, perhaps you could engage your fucking imagination like a halfway decent writer and figure out how to work modernity into your plots, or at least shut the fuck up whining about how incompetent and ignorant you are, you fucking hack.

bolding mine because it’s embarrassing how lazy old male novelists are. young people are making plenty of modern fiction—there’s no excuse. also, is “they got lost” seriously your only plot point?

one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’

no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty

I’m not going to prevent myself from evolving intellectually out of fear that someone might point out that I used to think differently. Well, of course I did, I’ve just come across evidence potent enough to transform my world view in the meantime. I’m not going to stagnate ideologically just for the sake of consistency.
