Taking a brief break from Tamino and the Magic Flute whilst waiting for proofreaders so I can work on a third draft.

For anyone interested in watching The Magic Flute…

Here’s a link with English subtitles.

This performance features:

Diana Damrau as the BEST Queen of the Night I have EVER SEEN,
Dorothea Rorschmann as a beautiful, innocent Pamina,
Some guy as a boring Tamino,
And Simon Keenlyside as an adorably depressing and woobie-esque kicked puppy of a darling Papageno.

They also completely removed the racism from this version, which is why it is one of my favorite versions. That and Diana Damrau. I mean. Holy Mozart.

And yes. Mozart and Schikaneder were more than aware of all the phallic imagery and symbolism in this piece. I think they cackled over it in private.

Kipper Original: The Fully Canvassed Suit

Kipper Clothiers believes in fully canvassing your suits — the benefits far outweigh the cost.

Canvassed Jackets:
Traditionally, suits were constructed with a layer of horsehair canvas underneath the wool fabric shell. This canvas holds the shape of the suit and keeps it from sagging or deforming, much like the foundation of a house keeps it upright. The canvas is cut to the jacket’s shape, then the wool is stitched to the canvas. Over time, as you wear the jacket, the canvas conforms to your body’s shape, creating an excellent fit.The canvas lining allows the suit fabric to drape naturally, allowing a clean, well put-together look.

Fused Jackets
Many suit manufacturers, as an effect of increased production, no longer use a canvas interlining in their jackets. Rather, a fusible interlining is glued to the wool shell of the suit. And while this does an adequate job of keeping a jacket’s shape, it often creates an unnatural stiffness in the jacket, making a fused jacket appear lifeless compared to a similar canvassed coat. It’s not just budget brands that construct jackets in this fashion. Many designer labels construct their suit jackets this way to save themselves money.

AvaLynn was attacked by another student on the school playground. We are fighting for answers and for greater supervision at school.

My friend Lacey Harris’s 5 year old daughter was brutalized by another child on the playground at school this week, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Her face is swollen and bruised beyond recognition, and the only thing the school can tell her is that they “are investigating”

This sweet little 5 year old girl is terrified to return to school. She is in pain and she has been MAIMED. This needs IMMEDIATE media attention. The school and local news are ignoring the mother’s and loved ones’ cries for help. This family needs justice for what has been done to their poor little angel, and not just to be swept under the rug, as the school district is attempting to do. PLEASE shine some light on this situation and force school administration and news media to get some answers!

The mother has started a GoFundMe page to request help for paying medical bills and legal fees, as it looks as though she’s going to have to pursue this route in order to get any justice at all for her little girl. Please, please, share this link on your page. Even if people are unable to donate, please just help us get the word out on what is going on with this poor family.

This is really heartbroken for me and extremely hard to look at.

This is the link to Ava’s donation page.
Please donate and share and PRAY!
God bless you all!

rly cool thing to do: train yourself to have they/them be your reflexive go-to pronoun

I feel like English teachers worldwide would cringe at how ungrammatical that idea really is. It comes off as overly PC, and confusing…

Shakespeare is Elizabethan English. Beowulf is Old English.
