My book from stammsternenstaub arrived today, and it is gorgeous
Welcome to Nightvale, in the Union Chapel, Islington, London.
1) The stage.
2) Mary Epworth, The Weather
3) A less animated, but better photographed stage.
4) Some guy.
5) Mary, Joseph Fink, Jeffrey Cranor, “Today’s proverb” Meg, a guest voice, a guest voice, Some guy.
It’s 6 O’Clock, my nail varnish has dried, I’m wearing a T-Shirt of a skull made up of kittens, and the hopeless cloud that is existence is raining away gently on a London landscape.
Time to go to Nightvale.
never let your printer know that you waited until the last minute to print something and you’re in a hurry. they can sense fear
This is a fact
This is actually more true now than it used to be, as people currently experiencing fear exude pheromones which interfere with local wifi connections.
In 1994, Liam Neeson declined the role of James Bond, because he wasn’t interested in action movies.
It’s taken him a while, but maybe he took a walk among the tombstones and reconsidered, because he appears to have taken to doing them pretty much non-stop, and for action roles offered to him recently, he seems to have taken three at least.
Okay, I’m done.
on a scale of luke skywalker to jaime lannister how well would you deal with losing your right hand
or, on a scale of luke skywalker to jaime lannister how well do you deal with latent sexual feelings for your sister
or, on a scale of luke skywalker to jamie lannister how well would you deal with your dad being an utter bastard with unresolved issues about the death of his wife
Mother. Of. God. D:
With these, the ambassador is really attempting to kill us.
the feeling of incredulous betrayal when someone is like “BEST COVER I’VE EVER HEARD” and it turns out the cover concept is “acoustic guitar, 12x slower, gentle man bleating”
I like the Abney park one.
I do not like the Muse one.
However. Eight covers of Creep that I like more than the Muse one.
One worse one:
One original one, with a video I’ve loved a very long time:
My favourite version:
…. is no longer on Youtube.
At the end of Bill Bailey’s “Tinselworm” show, he goes off on an unsually personal and serious bit about the song, about how he relates to it, about how the lyrics match a lot of what he thinks, and about how he wishes it wasn’t a radiohead song.
Then he does a cover with the same Indian-culture band from this Duelling Sitars video, which has somehow escaped the ContentID Dragnet, and I love it to pieces. (I saw him perform it live at Wembley. Not the most atmospheric place for a comedy show, but he made me fall off my chair anyway).
I stopped singing Creep at karaoke nights when I stopped knowing people who went to karaoke nights. I like the song a lot. I associate a lot of my best and worst head-spaces with it.
I also wish it wasn’t a radiohead song.
But you can’t have everything.
There’s thousands of notes on posts about how unfair it is that there isn’t a wonder woman movie and now that its been officially announced nobody is talking about it?
Like Can I get at least a hell yeah?
It’s as if a million voices cried out and then suddenly realised “…wait. DC Films haven’t produced a good non-batman movie like, ever. And the Dawn of Justice looks… ropey. Hold off on the cheers, folks, this… this might be a rough ride”.
If roads were built like cycle lanes.

Build a man a fire and he’ll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.
This is true, but I needed him to vote (in my favour) in a little while.
Which, fortunately, he did. After we dunked him in water, apologised, snuck him passed some assassins, fed him a Greater Restoration Potion to cure alcoholism, snuck him passed a clocktower assassin enough per hit to kill him, or me, but not the tank ( princessfuckyouknickers), then we took out the assassin (by wizard (abigailbrady) with fire), and delivered him to the senate. Where we won by quite some margin.
Which still doesn’t beat the time with the goblin distillery and the fire.
Look, I made a gif of this most awesome wizard at the Leaky Cauldron!
DUDE IS READING ‘A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME’ BY STEPHEN HAWKING
I NEVER REALIZED
are you serious
I always assumed wizards just ignored science, because the fact that “magic” exists, can explain anything. But there are MuggleBorn wizards, ones who, until they were eleven, lived in the real world and learned science and things. Did they all just abandon that normal, muggle knowledge, like Harry did? It’s always been there, itching in the back of my mind.
FOUR FOR YOU SCIENCE WIZARD
YOU GO SCIENCE WIZARD
can we point out that he’s doing wandless magic too
like voldemort couldnt even do that shit
molly fuckin weasley couldnt fuckin do that

pretty sure this whole series has been about the wrong wizard guys
Plot Twist: He is able to do wandless magic because his comprehensive understanding of quantum physics means that he is the only wizard/witch to actually understand how magic works.
Incidentally, that’s Ian Brown, Lead singer of the Stone Roses.
