    Drømde mik en drøm i nat by National Museum of Denmark

    For people who are actually interested in how viking music might have sounded, “Drømde mik en drøm i nat" (/I dreamt a dream last night) is the earliest music (and lyrics) known in Scandinavia preserved on the last page of the (~1200-1300) Codex Runicus as rune notes.

    The song and melody is still known and used today in most of Scandinavia, as a sort of folk-standard. This version, deceivingly slow in the beginning, is presented as close to the original sound of the years 900-1000 as historians think they can come.

    This song might have survived because it was a gigantic hit, like the viking’s very own “Billie Jean”. A total pop slayer that stayed around long enough for music notes to be invented.

    The more you know.

    Cool as hell

    would have been neat if they had sung too, though! I mean there are lyrics preserved so it would have been fairly easy to make it sound even closer to the original, wouldn’t it? this is interesting but a very bare bones version.

    you know how every girl in the world has a secret code with her girlfriends for when they need a tampon well when I was younger the code was ‘japan is attacking, do you have supplies’ I feel like I shouldn’t have to explain the joke but just to be safe

    Oh my fucking god

    IIRC, in Japan one of the euphemisms for a girl’s period is “flag day”.

    Magnets! How do they work?

    I am so excited about these bracelets! The moment I saw them, I knew we had to do something with them. These bracelets use magnets to hold their charms in place, which means you can change them and swap them for a new bracelet whenever you want!

    We’re working on tons of charms, but since we launched our Bob’s Burgers Hoodie presale today, we decided that a Tina Belcher inspired bracelet was the perfect place to start.

I’ll probably touch this up a bit more later, once my eyes have had a rest from it. I’d like to have a print of this ~w~ and a shout out to tricksterocelot who inspired the image.
From my AU.

    Transphobic U.S. Congressman edits Wikipedia to include hate speech for Laverne Cox   

    sunshien:

    wdya:

    Someone with an IP address sourcing to the House of Representatives just edited the Orange Is the New Black Wikipedia page with the telling summary of “not a woman.”

    That’s right, this Congressman edited out a sentence hailing the show for including “the first ever women-in-prison narrative to be played by a real transgender woman.”  What did he replace it with?  Hate speech.

    The Congressman called Cox a “man pretending to be a woman,” and linked to an offensive article by National Review Online aptly titled “Laverne Cox Is Not a Woman.”

    The change has since been reversed and the IP address has been banned from editing Wikipedia for a month, but you can see the original edit he made in the link above.

    The change was spotted by a Twitter bot which tweets out links any time a Congressional IP address edits Wikipedia.

    Spread this like wildfire.

    (articles on The A.V. Club, Yahoo, and NY Daily News)

    Oh my god

    i don’t know if everyone else knows about this or not, but i just went onto the twitterbot’s page and this is not just about laverne cox, someone from congress has been editing multiple articles concerning transgender people (mostly women) and laverne was probably the first trans celebrity they could think of, other edits have been made including:

    (source)

    (source)

    (source)

    this is not just about laverne cox, do not just make it about laverne cox, this is not one person being transphobic towards a celebrity we like, there is someone in congress with an agenda of misinformation actively trying to slander the trans community through wikipedia.

    Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.

    Stand up, speak out.
