Just things I like. I'm interested in the lives of women and children from both sides during WW2 and world war 1 (Tags are 'women in wartime' and 'children in wartime'). If you know any good books or films on the subject I'm interested in hearing about them. Of course war isn't pleasent so some of the pictures may be disturbing. I'm not terribly interested in anime but I like Dragon ball Z so there will be a bit of that too.

I also really like Florence and the machine, arcade fire, emilie autumn and die antwoord. I like loads of stuff but these are my top 4 right now


The German anti-war film Die Brücke is my favourite film ever so I'll post screenshots from time to time. As far as I know this fandom consists of only me. If you know where I can get an English dubbed version I would be really grateful. There is also a novel of the same name that I can't seem to find an English translation of so again if you know where I can get one I'd appreciate it.




I don't have any particularly strong views on anything.

"Clubs are such insufferable dungeons of misery, the inmates have to take mood-altering substances to make their ordeal seem halfway tolerable. This leads them to believe they “enjoy” clubbing. They don’t. No one does. They just enjoy drugs. Drugs render location meaningless. Neck enough ketamine and you could have the best night of your life squatting in a shed rolling corks across the floor."

don’t be guilty for what you can’t control, it’s pointless and self-indulgent if you have no power to make change

that doesn’t mean be unaware, of course, but guilt is another beast

These images, which represent the first ever colour photographs taken in Ireland, were taken in 1913 by two French women, Marguerite Mespoulet and Madeleine Mignon-Alba, who used newly available autochrome colour plates. - More here
