i think something went wrong

The Ballad of the House of Leg
When Hogwarts was first foundedBy the noble Founders Four,They looked upon their housesAnd they asked: “Do we need more?”
"For some are brave, and some are loyal,As each one of us knows,And some are cunning, some are smart,But some are NONE of those!”
"What shall we do with pupilsWho just haven’t got a clue?Who have no proud distinctive traitsAnd may well smell of poo?”
"Let’s found another house for them:A Hogwarts bargain bin.The entrance code is simple:If they’ve got a leg, they’re in!”
The cryptofascist FoundersGave themselves both praise and plauditThey gave the school the House of LegThen basically ignored it.
Thus left alone, the House of LegBecame a decent placeFor aimless wandering, cups of teaAnd staring into space
The dull and non-distinctive Found a quiet place to land onAnd in times of trouble, Hogwarts alwaysHas its Leg to stand on…

Laughing like a drain right now.

The Ballad of the House of Leg

When Hogwarts was first founded
By the noble Founders Four,
They looked upon their houses
And they asked: “Do we need more?”

"For some are brave, and some are loyal,
As each one of us knows,
And some are cunning, some are smart,
But some are NONE of those!”

"What shall we do with pupils
Who just haven’t got a clue?
Who have no proud distinctive traits
And may well smell of poo?”

"Let’s found another house for them:
A Hogwarts bargain bin.
The entrance code is simple:
If they’ve got a leg, they’re in!”

The cryptofascist Founders
Gave themselves both praise and plaudit
They gave the school the House of Leg
Then basically ignored it.

Thus left alone, the House of Leg
Became a decent place
For aimless wandering, cups of tea
And staring into space

The dull and non-distinctive
Found a quiet place to land on
And in times of trouble, Hogwarts always
Has its Leg to stand on…

Laughing like a drain right now.

The Snow Leopard cub at Milwaukee County Zoo has been busy playing with new toys and developing his skills! Patrons of the zoo are able to purchase toys and items from a wish list. The toys encourage behavior similar to what is seen in the wild, and they provide enrichment the growing zoo babies need to stimulate their minds and bodies.

Reblog if you would watch a show with an openly aromantic protagonist who stays aromantic and doesn’t eventually meet the ‘one’ and fall in love because fuck that.

Totally read this as “aromatic”. :/

could you imagine the noise of someone finding a box full of negatives from Camera Press London? It would sound like you finding your phone (that you’ve lost for over a week now) in a box full of fluorescent kittens. The negatives inside are from the seventies to the early nineties consisting pics of Duran Duran, Shirley Bassey, Jetset people and other famous old creeps that i don’t know (but they all look tremendous on the pics). And i have admit, i fell in love with the Bay City Rollers. They look like little clueless clows doing a lot of random shit. They call their songs “Shang a lang” or “Rock and Roll love letter” and “You made me believe in magic”. And the best thing of all, their music super crappy!

*all negatives (DIA) have been digitalised with an ION FILM2SDpro film and slide scanner

Lololol!
