I always feel like I should apologize for my personal posts, but then I realize that I have Ultimate Blog Power. I can write an essay about how sad I am and then post ten pictures of dogs rollerblading. You can’t stop me.

Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made
Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.
He proceeded to show it to us in class.

Hello BuzzFeed! What is your favorite sport? Mine's hockey!
Opinions vary, but a lot of us are fond of Turkish oil wrestling. It’s the national sport of Turkey!
Someone needs to take the BuzzFeed tumblr away from me.
um you were unaware of the existence of Turkish Oil Wrestling? Buzzfeed has done a wonderful job educating us all to its wonders.

Someone said I should read Evelyn Waugh’s The Loved One
AndI tell ya, after doing this research, I shall. XD It was inspired by Forest Lawn, which is actually a funeral company which has major cemeteries across Los Angeles, the biggest and most notable being in Glendale. For real they are more theme parks than cemeteries like goddamn. so fucking tacky but trying to look nice and happy, and apparently if you go trying to find the grave of your favorite celeb, the people working there are assholes. XD
Walt Disney is buried there, AND IT FUCKING FITS.
That’s kind of why I liked Hollywood Forever as Inez’s final resting place, it’s completely absurd, but it recognizes its own absurdity in a weird way. xD
“I find suggestion a hell of a lot more provocative than explicit detail. You didn’t see Clark [Gable] and Vivien [Leigh] rolling around in bed in Gone With The Wind, but you saw that shit eating grin on her face the next morning and you knew damned well she’d gotten properly laid.” ― Joan Crawford

okay researching the people buried in the major Hollywood cemeteries has been ridiculously fascinating.
Started out just curious about where Inez would be buried, ended up learning a lot about the people who would be her contemporaries.
