Taking a risk (not really) in assuming that you’d rather look at tumblr instead of facebook on your birthday.
Hoping your 22nd is full of ~*T.O.P CLASS*~ and crafty sparkles.
(because I’ll always pick TOP, G-Dragon and bubble wrap over Taecyeon and Okcats. #sorrynotsorry)
Thank you! You know me too well, carol! It will be T.O.P classy once I finish these papers!
I still remember this tho:
So you aren’t above referencing the glorious okcat ^^
I promise I’m gonna organize a craft day ~one of these days~. Let me know if you get that job you want! it would be great to have you in town this summer. I’d visit you at work ^^
75 years ago, on this date, Billie Holiday recorded a song that Time Magazine would call song of the century: Strange Fruit, a song written about a lynching in the South.
Holiday first performed the song at Cafe Society in 1939. She said that singing it made her fearful of retaliation but, because its imagery reminded her of her father, she continued to sing the piece making it a regular part of her live performances. Because of the poignancy of the song, Josephson drew up some rules: Holiday would close with it; the waiters would stop all service in advance; the room would be in darkness except for a spotlight on Holiday’s face; and there would be no encore. During the musical introduction, Holiday would stand with her eyes closed, as if she were evoking a prayer.
