12 year olds in 2007 more like
but he hasn’t yet figured out that
I inherited it from him,
that some traits were passed down
to his daughters
even though he wanted to see them
Had I been a boy, he would’ve told me
to shout louder,
the the world wants to hear
what a man has to say.
I’ll keep shouting until someone listens,
until I wake up god from a peaceful
He created all men equally,
where do I fit in?

Exquisitely detailed enough to be crafted in the forest realm of Lothlórien, this beauteous guitar was not forged by elf nor man, but by 16 year Vivian Xiao with sharpie markers! Depicting Nazgul, Minas Tirith, and even the all-seeing Eye of Sauron, this divinely-engraved instrument could surely inspire even more Led Zeppelin songs. Check put Vivian’s website for details on purchasing and commissions.
This is awesome!
I take my inspiration from everyone I work with. My favorite actors are people that I’ve worked with. The Skins kids, all of them, every single one, are my favorite actors because you learn so much from them. I really respect certain people’s careers. I really respect Jennifer Lawrence’s career, Kristen Stewart… But I think — I look forward to working with unknown people and people that are just breaking through and that have that kind of fire for it and haven’t necessarily had the money or the education or the parental connections to get into the industry, and I think that’s great.
shockingly, kids are sick and tired of paying hundreds of dollars for overpriced stacks of paper!!!!!! who wouldve thought!!!!!!
Anonymous asked: “you had one non-american/white, non-stick thin character and you get a white,blonde stick thin actress to play her”
1. I have never written a central female character who was described as thin other than Lindsey Lee Wells. Also, Margo and Q are two of the only white-identified people I’ve written, so I don’t really know how to respond to that part of your statement.
2. I do not cast the movie adaptations of my books. I am a novelist, not a casting director. I did not choose who would play Margo anymore than I choose where the movie will be filmed or what the budget or soundtrack will be.
3. That said, I think Cara will do a wonderful job as Margo. As I’ve learned in the past few hours, a lot of people who don’t know Cara have extremely strong opinions about her as a person, which is weird, because they don’t know her. They have a lot of opinions about her body, too, especially its supposed inadequacies. Cara is living, on a much larger stage, the Margo Roth Spiegelman experience: She receives massive amounts of attention but she’s more a mirror than a window. The way people respond to her seems to be a reflection of one’s own experience and worldview more than it has anything to do with the actual person Cara is. I think this is part of why Cara’s audition was so powerful: Her understanding of Margo is deep and profound and about a lot more than the shape of her body.
at first i was really opposed to cara as margo roth spiegelman, especially since paper towns means so much to me, but john’s thoughts on cara as margo might have just changed my mind.
you ever think you want a relationship but then you masturbate and it’s like you know what nvm
