If you’re not already excited about Rob Cantor you will be now.

You know sometimes the way the news is lately leaves me feeling a little hopeless, but then something like this comes along and my wonder and delight in humanity is restored a smidge.

It moves me to tears.


❝And I’m talking about in the future after we’ve killed our husbands. Notice I said kill not divorce; you want everything not half.❞
(my advice to my roommates earlier tonight (via hedwigdiedwtf))


❝A story went about - embellished with every retelling - that the king [Edward IV] had promised to marry Elizabeth [Woodville] as the most direct means to get her into bed, and that Elizabeth had attempted to defend her honor by threatening Edward with a dagger before eventually succumbing to his youthful charm. This titillating tale was included in the Italian courtly poem De mulieribus admirandis (“Of wonderful women”), written in terza rima by Antonio Cornazzano some time before October 1468, so very clearly it had romantic appeal across the Europe. There was probably more poetic fancy than journalistic truth to Cornazzano’s account. All we know from sources immediate to the event is that within a week of Edward’s marriage to Elizabeth Woodville becoming public knowledge, diplomatic channels were buzzing with news that the king had ‘determined to take the daughter of my Lord Rivers, a widow with two children, having long loved her, it appears.’❞
("The Hollow Crown. The Wars of the Roses and the Rise of the Tudors" by Dan Jones (2014)

  • Achilles: The only thing I will be waving is your decapitated head on a stick in front of your weeping mother!
  • Agamemnon: ... good lord.

Ugh. Kids these days. With their taste in things that’s different than my taste in things was when I was their age due to the ever-evolving media landscape and constantly growing range of options and things that have nothing to do with their intelligence or anything going down hill. Get off my lawn.

On this day in history, 21st October 1449, Birth of George Plantagenet,1st Duke of Clarence, Earl of Salisbury and Warwick
He was born in Ireland because his father was serving there as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. Out of twelve children George was the 9th child and 6th son (3rd son who survived childhood) of Richard Duke of York and Cecily Neville, he was also brother to the kings Edward IV and Richard III. George married in 1469 Isabel Neville (oldest daughter of Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick - ‘The Kingmaker’), together they would have four children, only two of them, Margaret and Edward, would survive childhood. Though a member of the House of York, he switched sides to support the Lancastrians, before reverting to the Yorkists. He was later convicted of treason against his brother, Edward IV, and was executed in 1478 (allegedly by being drowned in a butt of Malmsey wine).
