I’ve never been more sure of anything in my life. #beyoncé
OH YES OH YES OH YES.
TCM is having a Sinatra marathon. *Swoon*

Now Watching: Guys and Dolls
What a great cast. I know I say that about most movies, but still.
If I didn’t have TCM, I would be miserable.
I mean, I could enjoy myself just as much reading a book, but most of my favorite movies were made between the thirties and sixties, so unless I own them, it’s hard to watch them again. There aren’t exactly a ton of links to stream old films, and the Classics category on Netflix is a joke.
How long do you think it took them to capture this?
One shot because the photographer was Chuck Norris.
#ALL THAT KNOWLEDGE #LOST #FOR #FUCKING #EVER
DON’T EVEN FUCKING TALK TO ME ABOUT THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA
FUCK NOW I’M UPSET
Oh yeah, that tome of history compiled by a Mesopotamian priest on the History of the World, supposedly spanning back 40,000 years of history?
Fucking gone. Gone forever.
"We shed as we pick up, like travellers who must carry everything in their arms, and what we let fall will be picked up by those behind. The procession is very long and life is very short. We die on the march. But there is nothing outside the march so nothing can be lost to it. The missing plays of Sophocles will turn up piece by piece, or be written again in another language. Ancient cures for diseases will reveal themselves once more. Mathematical discoveries glimpsed and lost to view will have their time again. You do not suppose, my lady, that if all of Archimedes had been hiding in the great Library of Alexandria, we would be at a loss for a corkscrew?"
