im pretty sure it is physically impossible to listen to radioactive by imagine dragons without imagining yourself in a post-apocalyptic city with your hair slowly blowing in the wind as you walk down the deserted street with a gun on your shoulder


welcome to the new age

I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones

Protip: This is a really bad question to ask when visiting the National Mall. We have 8 buildings surrounding the Mall, and a total of 19 museums, 9 research centers and the National Zoo. A S.H.I.E.L.D agent should know better! 

(We think she means the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in this case.)  

I love that this is on the Smithsonian’s tumblr

Whoever does social media for the Smithsonian is awesome. 

I decided to do some digging because even though this is the Smithsonian official tumblr, as someone who’s worked at the Air and Space Museum in DC, my first reaction was: “But there IS a building called the Smithsonian Institute which was the first one built, is sometimes referred to as just ‘the Smithsonian’, and (if I remember from my one visit) technically does have fossils (on display)”

So I decided to do some research to see if maybe Widow was possibly just trying to make a reference Cap would get because the other museums were built post-WWII.

By WWII, only a small portion of Smithsonian museum’s were constructed. Besides a few art and design museums, there was only the Smithsonian Institute (1855) and the National Museum of Natural History (built in 1911). The rest didn’t come around until the 60s or later. But holy crap 1911, way earlier than I would’ve guessed.

So, tl; dr is they’re right and my mine is blown, but I did my research anyways. Cause that’s what they taught me at the Smithsonian.

I’m not embarrassed to admit that as a kid I was sure the Carmen Sandiego computer games were a test, and if you did well enough you’d get recruited by A.C.M.E.

I’m only kinda embarrassed to admit as a teenager that I thought there was a small chance that Stargate SG1 was a real thing. (I mean, they practically shouted it with Wormhole X-Treme, and the US Airforce does in fact hire archaeologists!) And I swear this has nothing to do with me getting a degree in theoretical astrophysics…

But now, as an adult, I’m really embarrassed because a very tiny fraction of me believes that if I even jokingly say a certain phrase that rhymes with “Kale, fried yah”, S.H.I.E.L.D. is never going to hire me.



"Defiance" isn’t too shabby, but I can’t help but think of Datak Tarr as "Off-brand Rumple."


The albino crocodile, though rare in the Enchanted Forest, flourishes in other realms


Loving family man, control freak with a peasant past, and shady underworld fixer extraordinaire? I was there first!

He totally is, except his wife is Lacey, not Belle and she’s AWESOME.

We could rig the mayoral elections this year, or we could just relax and beat some peasants. Your call, sweetie.

"I’m still the same man that’s loved you like a father since the day you put me in electrified handcuffs and kidnapped me."


My level of feels right now:

Epiphany of the morning - Alex Knightley isn’t Emma Approved’s version of Lizzy, like most fans think (because he’s snarky and critical), he’s actually way more of a proxy for Jane!

I’ve been re-watching the first few episodes of LBD and something jumps out at me. From super early on in the show, Lizzy is clearly a biased, overdramatic narrator despite all her claims otherwise. Jane might be sugar and spice and all things nice, but she totally calls Lizzy out for this, with Charlotte’s help.

Additionally, Jane’s biggest problem is the she’s nice to everyone, and this leads to confusion about what her real feelings are, among those who don’t know her as well (aka Bing and Darcy). That sounds like EXACTLY what Alex’s problem is. With only Emma, he’s very critical and outspoken, but around anyone else he’s so super professional and nice that it’s going to cause trouble down the line.

Just a thought while I avoid studying for my exam this afternoon. :D


Drunk Literature with me, Ashley


Okay I’m drunk again so let’s talk about Mr. Knightley.

Mr. fuckin Knightley goddamn. Okay so Darce-face may be the signature Austen love interest and I get it. Homeboy is mysterious and powerful and accessibly awkward and also if you can win the love of a man that generally misanthropic then…


And that is the greatest description I’ve ever heard since a friend told me that Jonathan Rhys Meyers in Dracula was so hot that while she was watching the show her vagina detached and started throwing itself at him.
