Eddie Izzard - shopping at Mac store in Soho
New York City - May 14, 2014
When I was a kid I saw his HBO special. I watched it so many times I still know most of the words. It was the first time I saw a man dressed feminine, be funny, and not have women as a punch line. He didn’t slump out in front of the stage embarrassed by his clothing, he came out perfectly happy, hoping around, and didn’t do some silly feminine voice for laughs, he just used his voice, he wore his clothes, spoke about social injustice, and he was fucking funny. It was nice to watch a comedian and not be the fucking punch line or a flattened stereotype for laughs.
My favorite comedian of all time. I have several of his DVDs and I can quote many of his jokes. He never ceases to make me laugh.

Why is House of D not pictured? Something tells me this isn’t comprehensive.

Reading the Valaquenta again for the tolkienreadalong, this line jumped out at me which I’d never really noticed before:
"He has little heed for either the past or the future, and is of no avail as a counsellor, but is a hardy friend.”
Immediately scenarios of Tulkas’ advice column leapt into my head. Thanks for trying, Tulkas.

Tulkas is my favorite.
I just watched the “Blink” episode of Doctor Who.
This week’s Character Of The Week is a little special - instead of one character, with this playlist we’ll be celebrating the union of Beren and Luthien by finding theme songs for them as a couple.
Here’s how it works: I offer what I think should be Beren and Luthien’s theme-song. If you’ve got another song, add it as a reblog or reply (do not send it to my inbox) - preferably with a link to the song on Youtube. At the end of the day, I’ll collect all the songs and make a playlist on 8tracks, and post the link back on this blog tomorrow.
My theme song for Beren and Luthien is Die Young (Deconstructed) by Ke$ha. “So while you’re here in my arms Let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young.”
perfect song for them.

A Montage of the Carina Nebula
The Carina Nebula (known by astronomers as NGC 3372) is sometimes called the Great Nebula in Carina or the Grand Nebula. These images taken by the Hubble space telescope show the magnificent structure within the Carina Nebula. These images contain regions of dense star formation, interstellar winds, massive particle clouds and much more. Many of these structures are hundreds of light-years across and make the size of our solar system look pathetic in comparison. The Carine Nebula is about 10,000 light-years away from earth and is located in the constellation Carina.
I have that last one as a desktop wallpaper for years.
