From here:

3. 1975: Stevie Nicks writes “Silver Springs” about her relationship with Lindsay Buckingham, and Mick Fleetwood cuts it from ‘Rumors’ to replace it with Buckingham’s “I Don’t Want to Know.”

"I Don’t Want to Know," is not a bad song, but it’s kind of like a well-made roast beef sandwich next to the boeuf Wellington that is "Silver Springs," a song that ‘Rumors’ co-producer and engineer Richard Dashut called "the best song that has never made it to a record album."

The really crazy thing about “Silver Springs” is that it anticipates the revenge Nicks eventually got on Buckingham by going on to be, on her worst day, 100 times better than he is on his best, even though he is very good. That the song (accounts differ as to how much Nicks’ gender prevented her from being recognized as the band’s true master) promised the listener/Buckingham, “I’ll follow you down ‘til the sound of my voice will haunt you / you’ll never get away from the sound of the woman that loves you” and then made good on that promise, is both kind of awesome and creepy. It has become a classic for anyone, man or woman, wishing to express the specific but very common feeling of “fuck I still love you but that’s OK because I’m so much more talented than you are.”

Never more clearly, beautifully, hauntingly portrayed than in this video, which I’ve now watched more than is strictly healthy.

Hour 18 in this Chinese Airport…

So I kinda messed up on some travel plans. So I desperately need to check my email to confirm something important. And it’s taken me hours to get wifi and does gmail work!? NOPE.

Guess what does work? FREAKIN TUMBLR WORKS. Because you know, the wifi gods are on my side. But really though, congrats to tumblr for going above and beyond wifi limitations.

Comic about slurs, published in the Galago magazine last summer. 

And this is really how it is. Instead of placing the onus on us and asking why we don’t say anything, ask yourselves instead why you don’t think it’s a problem that it goes unchecked.

After a very long conversation with coworks and friends about Harry Potter, and which Potter character each of us are, I was deemed Harry. But what I really wanted to hear was, Luna: quirky, effervescent, warm. Or what I thought I would hear was Neville: quiet, awkward, surprisingly brave. And instead, I got Harry.

Me? Harry? REALLY?!? Why not a cooler or more obscure character? Or even one more commonly overlooked? McGonagall? Tonks?

And seriously, their response, “Rebecca, you’re our hero”. And I pretty much died out of flattery right on the spot. 

This is also fitting bc sadly, our boss is Professor Umbridge, and her boss, He-who-must-not-be-named. But that’s a different kind of post. Anyway, feeling the love ya’ll.

As parody pranks go, this one manages to be good-natured and sweet while still hilarious.

Very correct and to do less would mean you’re not paying attention.
