there was a time when writers were kind
when their screenplays were good
and their plots inviting
There was a time when trust was blind
And the world was a song
And the song was exciting
There was a time
Then it all
Holy shit look at the notes on this… Is it me or is the fandom trying to say something
How to spot a fake geek guy:
- says robin is useless
- says aquaman is useless
- worships batman bc batman is invincible
- doesn’t “understand” superman because he’s not relatable or interesting
- makes “hero vs hero” posts
- probably smells like axe
women of African descent they NEVER show you…
i don’t know about anyone else but i’d like to know who these ladies are. give us their names and stories!
holy shit that second one on the top row was the featured/star painting in an exhibition at work “Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe” - it’s not part of the collection at work, so I don’t have much info about her, but here is the relevant portion of an article the local paper wrote about the show:
For a literally fragmentary example, consider a painting from the 1580s that is attributed to Annibale Carracci. “Portrait of a Black Woman Slave” is one of the exhibit’s strongest examples of a black subject looking directly at you, but that visual connection does not mean that you’ll learn much about her identity.
The female slave is holding an expensive clock, indicating that she belongs to a wealthy household; and the painting also adheres to a conventional theme in which portrait subjects pose with clocks or other reminders of passing time and hence mortality.
Along one side of the painting can be seen the partial depiction of the shoulder, arm and veil of this female slave’s owner. The painting was cut into smaller pieces at some point, and the portion you’re looking at is all that survives of it.
Although this exhibit inevitably leaves identity-related questions unanswered, the fragmentary evidence still gives a sense of the presence of people of color in Renaissance Europe.
edit: whoops sorry here is the article in question
reblogging because this info needs shared. thanks, dear. <3
“How wasted were we?” — Europe, after
#5. The Congress of Vienna Was a Drunken, Horny Mess
The Vienna Congress gathered Europe’s richest, most powerful boozehounds and sex fiends together in one place, and then it granted them all diplomatic immunity. … Over the following weeks of drunken debauchery, Prussian and Russian delegates including Tsar Alexander had several regular drunken run-ins with the police. One British delegate, Robert Stewart, became notorious for antics like riding under the influence through Vienna on his flower-adorned horse and fighting carriage drivers, one of whom cracked Stewart in the face with a whip during an altercation. Stewart also turned every inn he stayed at into what locals aptly described as a “fucking-shop.”
