Welcome to my poorly organized personal blog where I sometimes talk about myself, but mostly just reblog what ever I feel like. Inbox is always open!
Times have changed
And we’ve often rewound the clock
Since the Puritans got a shock
When they landed on Plymouth Rock.
Any shock they should try to stem
‘Stead of landing on Plymouth Rock,
Plymouth Rock would land on them.
In olden days, a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking.
But now, God knows,
Good authors too who once knew better words
Now only use four-letter words
If driving fast cars you like,
If low bars you like,
If old hymns you like,
If bare limbs you like,
If Mae West you like,
Or me undressed you like,
Why, nobody will oppose.
When ev’ry night the set that’s smart is in-
truding in nudist parties
When Missus Ned McLean (God bless her)
Can get Russian reds to “yes” her,
Then I suppose
When Rockefeller still can hoard en-
Ough money to let Max Gordon
Produce his shows,
The world has gone mad today
And good’s bad today,
And black’s white today,
And day’s night today,
And that gent today
You gave a cent today
Once had several chateaux.
When folks who still can ride in Jitneys
Find out Vanderbilts and Whitneys
Lack baby clo’es,
When Sam Goldwyn can with great conviction
Instruct Anna Sten in diction,
Then Anna shows
When you hear that Lady Mendl standing up
Now does a handspring landing up-
On her toes,
Just think of those shocks you’ve got
And those knocks you’ve got
And those blues you’ve got
From those news you’ve got
And those pains you’ve got
(If any brains you’ve got)
From those little radios.
So Missus R., with all her trimmin’s,
Can broadcast a bed from Simmons
‘Cause Franklin knows
This whole Not Zimmy issue is really indicative of a troubling pattern I’ve always noticed in relationships between a man and a woman, but I’ve never said anything on the subject before.
In most cases, if a man expresses any manner of feelings for a woman, their relationship becomes inevitable. Said woman can reject the man’s advances over and over, but fans treat it like it’s only a matter of time; it’s already canon, the woman just doesn’t know it yet. (In contrast, if a woman expresses feelings for a man who doesn’t return them, she’s desperate and needy, and fans will want her shot down for not taking the hint and not immediately getting over him.)
I didn’t think Jenny looked like Zimmy (I actually had to look in the tag to see who that was supposed to be) but I understand why people thought it was her, and I understand why people were going, “Wait, what, what the hell happened, where’s Gamma?”
What I don’t understand is why people took it as a given that Zimmy would suddenly be with Jack, without Birminghell playing any tricks. That Zimmy – Zimmy who’s unsettlingly devoted to the girlfriend she physically needs around, who isn’t a demon but a “demon,” who’s likely never put a hairbrush through her hair, wears the scruffiest of clothes and doesn’t know how not to slouch, who’s been extensively studied and has spent her entire life wanting to stop being what she is – would be easily hanging off Jack’s side, eyes visible and not, y’know. Bright red.
Basically, that she could go from this:
with people putting it down to her abruptly being “cured.”
