For your reading pleasure, I present some choice quotes from the first (3 I think) seasons of Castle.

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

Darling Desi has her fall decorating video up, and it is so inspiring. I was also inspired to find and share some smaller youtubers. The Darling Desi channel was small I think just last fall and is now huge, so that was fun to watch. Dark Academia Starter Pack Dark Academia Lookbook Dark Academia Room… Continue reading “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

A Tolkien Blog Party Tag

I’m joining in Hamlette’s A Tolkien Blog Party and answering this tag. I was going to try to reread Tolkien before during this year’s blog party, but since I don’t own the books and have set my heart of some very expensive copies, and I must read it a certain way because I mustn’t do… Continue reading A Tolkien Blog Party Tag

The One or Soulmates Myth

Of all the irritating fluffy pseudo-psychology or pseudo-philosophy myths out there, this one takes the cake. People who say they don’t believe in religion still think that the “universe” has given them one person. If you believe in evolution as most people say they do, how in tarnation could you possibly believe a random universe… Continue reading The One or Soulmates Myth

Love at First Sight Myth

The “love at first sight” love is Eros or at least the beginning of it. Of course you can have instant sexual attraction and euphoria, certainly that can be a part of true love, but just because you have instant sexual attraction for someone doesn’t automatically mean it will turn into love. So I don’t… Continue reading Love at First Sight Myth

Types of Love

I think a lot of romance myths (The One/Soulmates Myth, The Love at First Sight Myth, Falling In or Out of Love Myth) spring from a superficial definition of love. I think its useful to use the ancient Greek words for love since two in particular I learned as part of New Testament* understanding in… Continue reading Types of Love

Random Pop Culture and Other Hilarious Stuff

Barnes and Noble Revamp and What Book is Popular in Each State Drew Gooden’s discussion of how American TV lets shows go on too long Including a discussion of the total war destruction that was the end of That 70’s Show.

The Original English Accent

When Brits get irritated with us about “their language” or us mentioning their accent:   It’s our language too, and some of us are literally the same people. We literally have a ton more English speakers. And most to the point I’d heard (and have now confirmed), we actually have less of accent change than… Continue reading The Original English Accent

U.S. and North American Accents

The Wired Accent expert Erik Singer that I mentioned in earlier posts has a series of three videos going into depth of the various U.S. accents. I didn’t know there were so many. He speaks in the accents when describing them as well (so cool!) It is SO fascinating. Obviously, he can’t hit every single… Continue reading U.S. and North American Accents

Community

These are some of the best quotes thus far (plus there are tons of situation humor sections that are obviously not reproducible).   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~   “Abed, nice to know you and then meet you, in that order.”   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~    “Anyway um, are you two an item? And if so, would that item be impervious… Continue reading Community
