Marlon fucking Brando. This suave bastard single-handedly buried classical acting by changing what people expected of a good acting performance. He was a champion of civil rights, defender of the underdog and made jeans and T-shirts fashionable. Also, he was sex on legs and it doesn’t hurt that he spoke French, too.
He’s my ever-lasting history crush and I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that all the people - male or female - that I ever spoke to about him (which are many) agreed that he was hotter than the sun and one hell of an actor. Are you joining the club?

Take a shot every time:
- Someone drowns themselves in the Volga or things about drowning themselves in the Volga as means of suicide
- Rich gentry judge each other
- Provincial backwaters go “old religion”
- Adultery occurs but for completely legitimate…
The Dance of Zalongo (Greek: Χορός του Ζαλόγγου) was a mass suicide of women from Souli and their children during the Souliote War of 1803, near the village of Zalongo in Epirus. The name also refers to a popular dance-song commemorating the event. During the Souliote War in December 1803, the Souliotes began evacuating Souli after their defeat by the forces of the local Ottoman-Albanian ruler, Ali Pasha. During the evacuation, a group of Souliot women and their children were trapped by Ali’s troops in the mountains of Zalongo in Epirus. In order to avoid capture and enslavement, the women threw their children first and then themselves off a steep cliff, committing suicide. According to the legend, they jumped down the precipice one after the other while singing and dancing.
Farewell poor world,
Farewell sweet life,
and you, my poor country,
Farewell for ever
Valleys, mountains and hills
And you, women of Souli
The fish cannot live on the land
Nor the flower on the sand
And the women of Souli
Cannot live without freedom
The women of Souli
Have not only learnt how to survive
They also know how to die
Not to tolerate slavery
Happy women’s day!
i don’t want to live in a world where i’m not allowed to enjoy both Shakespeare and Ke$ha.
Wake up in the mornin’ feel quite Hamlet-y
Grab my skull, I’m out the door, I’m gonna act real shitty
Before I leave, overthink if I’m on the right track
Cuz if I kill my uncle tonight, he ain’t comin back
i like that we say “oh, man” to express disappointment
because men are disappointing
