Tove Jansson on the island of Bredskär in 1950.
Tove and Lars Jansson bought the island and built a house called Vindrosen (The Wind Rose) in 1947. The whole family moved in except for Tove’s brother Per Olov Jansson (who also took this photo), since he already had a cottage on a nearby island.
In post-war Finland, building material was hard to come by and among other things, nails were pulled out and straightened from old planks to make the building possible.

The Strokes – I’ll Try Anything Once

When I said, ‘I can see me in your eyes’
You said, ‘I can see you in my bed’

I fight Rape Culture because
When I told my ex boyfriend about my rape
He ‘forgave’ me.

I fight Rape Culture because
I saw my baby sister age overnight
As she told me about her best friend getting molested.

I fight Rape Culture because
My closest friend was abused as a child
And he told nobody but me.
It took him 13 years to open up.

I fight Rape Culture because
My friends admit to letting their partners fuck them when they don’t want it
Then laugh it off as typical male behaviour.

I fight Rape Culture because
Saying that you’re raping someone is perfectly acceptable
If you’re playing a video game.

I fight Rape Culture because
Men tell me they are insulted when women walking in front of them start to walk faster.
As if their ego is more important than our safety.

I fight Rape Culture because
If I tell somebody their rape joke isn’t funny
I am told that I’m uptight.

I fight Rape Culture because
It won’t die out
Unless we kill it ourselves.

how did i just discover tavi gevinson i am a LOSER

1] I’m visiting Caius College, Cambridge for a few days on monday for a small science residential and I am very excited (maybe if i pretend to be smart and lovely they will give me an offer for medicine)(this is my only realistic hope)(the UKCAT is very difficult and i am now resigned to performing badly, i can feel it in my bones).

2] Barbican Young Poets have also just opened for 2014-2015 applications as well which is both exciting and terrifying. I’ve wanted to apply since they closed last year’s and now i’m here with a tiny pile of words and a tiny pile hope.

THE COLLEGE GIRL MENTALITY

thecollegegirlmentality:

A zine inspired by Sylvia Plath

Every now and then, that screencap of Annie Hall appears on my dash where Woody Allen’s character describes Sylvia Plath as the “interesting poetess whose tragic suicide was misinterpreted as romantic by the college-girl mentality”.

I ranted about this on…

i’m so excited about this

untouched by the veronicas was an audio masterpiece

I dream of a grave, deep and narrow, where we could clasp each other in our arms as with clamps, and I would hide my face in you and you would hide your face in me, and nobody would ever see us any more.
—Franz Kafka, The Castle

Porn teaches men they are gods. Pop culture teaches men that the epitome of success is to be surrounded by naked women, fawning over you. Prostitution exists because we, as a culture, very much believe that women exist to pleasure men. We tell women that they have to “work” in marriage, to keep their men happy, to keep them from straying — buy sexy lingerie, try threesomes, try anal, perform every porn fantasy he has — he needs it, he deserves it, it is your job.

We can continue to skirt around these truths — that the sex industry and our patriarchal culture breed men like Rodger — but expect more violence, more deaths, more rape, and more abuse. Our world is rife with Elliot Rodgers. We create them every day. They aren’t going anywhere.
