Beware of boys in bands.

beware of boys in bands,
certainly don't let them write you songs.

I reblog. Mostly stuff I enjoy, i.e. many, many Benedict Cumberbatch pictures/GIFs/videos/anything really. Other interests include Sherlock, music, feminism, Tom Hiddleston, photography and tons of randomness.
Very occasional personal posts as well.
Enjoy! x

“I am getting incredibly high on a single, astounding fact: that it’s always sunny above the clouds. Always. That every day on Earth - every day I have ever had - was, secretly, sunny, after all. However shitty and rainy it is in Wolverhampton - on the days where the clouds feel low, like a lid, and the swarf bubbles and the gutters churn to digest - it’s always been sunny up here.
I feel like I’ve just flown 600mph head-on into the most beautiful metaphor of my life: if you fly high enough, if you get above the clouds, it’s never-ending summer.”

“I think it’s really important to not to go on the red carpet and try and look pretty like all the other pretty ladies: wearing the dress and the high heeled shoes, getting your hair done and getting the diamonds you have to borrow for that day. That’s a competition I don’t want to take part in because other prettier girls with better hair and better shoes will win that competition. I don’t want to be in that competition. I want to walk very comfortably in a pair of boots and a Ghostbusters jumpsuit and be able to enjoy the afterparty: whenever you go to these afterparties you see these very beautiful women standing around holding their shoes in their hands, with a tension headache from their hairdo, scared that they’ve lost an earring that they’ve borrowed from Chopard, unable to breath or drink, scared of spillage and can’t go outside to have a fag because they are too chilly. I like to dress for fun. And I like to dress to bust ghosts. And that’s the only outfit that allows me to do both.”

“And I know you’re scared of dying man and I am too,
But just pretending it’s not happening isn’t gonna see us through.
So just accept that there’s an end game and we haven’t got much time,
And then in the here and now we can try and do things right.”

I had to ask myself, well, is this really worth it?
Is any of this worth it?
Well, the whole thing’s far from perfect,
But I’ve yet to figure out a better way to spend my time.

Koko the gorilla, is a female gorilla who is able to understand more than 1000 signs on the the American Sign Language system and over 2000 words of spoken English. 

Koko had a pet kitten, which she received on her birthday on July 1984. It was noted that Koko cared for that kitten as if it were a little baby gorilla. The kitten one day escaped from Koko’s cage and was hit by a car.

When she was told of what happened, this is how she responded.

It was also noted that afterwards she made weeping sounds like a human.
