i just realized what i both hate and love about english: it is a language of nouns. greek has so much action, it’s so dynamic. latin is so formulaic. german is so proper. spanish is so emotive. but english sits heavy on your tongue. some of the words are flighty, but that’s from word borrowing. even in old english where there are more inflections there are many verbs that look like nouns. i had a hard time getting a student of mine (i’m a tutor) to recognize verbs and i just wanted to tell him to look for…oh. the sentence functions in a more intuitive way. Even when i don’t know a spanish verb’s definition, i know its tense and its function in the sentence. Along with the fewer tenses, english sits like this fog and that’s either beautiful or revolting.

Arabella - Arctic Monkeys. First the center begins, then the left ear follows a few seconds later, and the right ear comes a few seconds after, causing a round effect (headphones recommended for full effect).

Heated would be an understatement
Lupita Nyong’o (via sonofafieldnegro)
this is so important. too many actors fail to thank the people they play on screen. They often think they are those people and that they have actually done something through acting a part. Lupita knows the importance of playing the role of Patsey, but she always pays tribute to this real historical person and all the Patseys who have suffered. Lupita reminds everyone that Patsey is very real. That Solomon Northrup’s story is very real. This history from this movie is real and we must not forget. Thank you, Lupita. You’re an angel.
