Fri 5 March ‘21
The new Grammys ads confirm what we’ve known from the minute they said Ben Winston was in charge really, that yes Harry will be a featured performer. We’ve gotten some hints about what to expect that sound like they’ll be streaming different performances from various small venues around LA maybe, and some people will be at the main site (which sounds like it’s the parking lot of the stadium venue?), and they say that yes people will be on site accepting awards.
Miley Cyrus posted a masked selfie with a copy of a commemorative ’The Ultimate Guide to Harry Styles’ glossy magazine captioned “CONSIDER THIS BOUGHT! adding to my HS collection immediately.” I feel like once someone’s dressed up as YOU for Halloween it’s a bit late to become a breathless stan, but I gather she’s joking around anyway, more or less at the expense of fans, but TBH if I randomly came across something called the ‘Ultimate Guide to Harry Styles’ in the wild I would certainly also take a picture of myself laughing about it to send to friends though, can we blame her? And in what feels like related news, Justin Beiber wears a TPWK patch in his new video.
#Harry styles#meanwhile antis are currently out there saying they think larries will stop being larries when they see harry and his costar together#because we’ll focus on that instead#I literally don’t know why I would ever expect more of people who look at Harry Styles and go ‘ah now that there: that is a STRAIGHT MAN’#but the actual inability to comprehend the words ‘these people are literally gay and are together’ is honestly mindblowing#them: ‘yeah no I heard you you said you think it would be hot if they were gay and together? right??’#genuinely imagine being that stupid i swear to god#ANYWAY#report from other fan stuff-- so there's a new DMAs record out today it's a live album#the show was recorded one year ago today so early march in the UK which with hindsight OOF#like literally just listening to the crowd noise and liking it makes me feel like COMPLICIT ro smth but we didn't know until we knew...#but even still fucking hell the way it made me want to be there dancing and screaming and sweating and with all the people#and the live music#SIGH#I really could fucking CRY (plus extra so because honestly I will NEVER see that fucking band they have like NO U.S. fanbase they don't even#bother to distribute their records here)#but what I was gonna say was there's been some fan anticipation to hear the release and see whether they left in the between song dedication#before one of the songs that was to a fan who had died and that song had been played at her memorial and her husband was there#and they DID and the whole thing is TOO MUCH#yall it was way to many feelings for a damn live record I swear to you I'm a mess right now#*too#5 mar 21

The stark contrast between the messages of In Flanders Fields and Dulce Et Decorum Est... how one poem urges the reader to take up the torch of the men who have died and carry on the fight, while the other actively dissuades the reader from war...
“Take up our quarrel with the foe:/To you from failing hands we throw/The torch; be yours to hold it high./If ye break faith with us who die/We will not sleep, though poppies grow/In Flanders fields”
versus
“If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood/Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,/Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud/Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues—/My friend, you would not tell with such high zest/To children ardent for some desperate glory,/The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est/Pro patria mori.”
Just. The change in tone throughout the war. Both of these were written during WWI; IFF in 1915, and DEDE in 1917-1918. Neither poem makes light of loss, but Flanders Fields describes the surroundings of the battles rather than the death and destruction of the soldiers themselves, while Dulce doesn’t bother pulling punches and describes in great detail what happens to soldiers in the trenches. Flanders Fields still had the spirit of the fight, urging new soldiers to take up the torch and continue the work of the dead. By contrast, Dulce downright rejects the spirit of war in the face of the horrors that are brought by war.
For translation, “Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori” means something to the effect of “It is sweet and just to die for one’s country”.
Reading these poems rly puts existentialism in a new light man. Also one cannot read DEDE and leave without feeling at least a little horrified.

*bangs fists on table* I WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT MY NEW REDWALL NICHE SHIP it is Banya/Tiria from High Rhulain and I think they are in lesbians together!! Think about it!! Just think about it!!! Tiria being crowned queen after a childhood spent chafing against the male-dominated role of Skipper that Mossflower had, but she needs an advisor and friend to teach her Green Isle’s traditions.... Banya, exhausted after a lifetime of constant vigilance and warfare and death, who needs someone with a gentler outlook on life.....I’m going wild imagine these two highly-competent lesbian otters I’m going batshit

i remember looking out of the window of the bus i was on to get to poland and trying to find anything in the landscape that would still be beautiful after the inevitable. i was looking at the trees, deer searching the fields for something edible, it was summer, there were barely any clouds, i tried to get some joy out of the bright blue sky but i didn’t have it in me, i remember thinking all this is is cold. the world felt like a flat photograph i was staring at. i felt like it had spat me out and i was pressing my hands against the windows with no way to get back inside

The running theme of the past couple months has been my brain randomly conjuring the Mountain Goats line “I hope you love your life now/like I love mine” 
I always used to say that one day I was going to move far away from home and figure out who the fuck I was on my own, and now I have, and I really like who I’ve become, and like, life isn’t perfect and it’s not at all how I pictured it when I was younger but I really think I’m happy? 
Fucking hell, I’ve been getting really sentimental with the holidays coming up, but I just want to say that I hope you all can find a way to love your lives, if not now, then someday, because it’s the best feeling in the whole world to realize that you’re gonna be okay, and I just really want everybody to have that.
