no thank you
GOOD FUCKING BYE TO THAT
Remember how Teen Titans had a lesson about Racism without blatantly bringing Cyborg’s Race into it?
In 2006 Ms. Lockwood, an English teacher at Xavier High School, asked her students to write a letter to a famous author. She wanted them discuss the author’s work and ask for advice. Kurt Vonnegut (1922 – 2007) was the only one to write back and his advice is worth reading.
Dear Xavier High School, and Ms. Lockwood, and Messrs Perin, McFeely, Batten, Maurer and Congiusta:
I thank you for your friendly letters. You sure know how to cheer up a really old geezer (84) in his sunset years. I don’t make public appearances any more because I now resemble nothing so much as an iguana.
What I had to say to you, moreover, would not take long, to wit: Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow.
Seriously! I mean starting right now, do art and do it for the rest of your lives. Draw a funny or nice picture of Ms. Lockwood, and give it to her. Dance home after school, and sing in the shower and on and on. Make a face in your mashed potatoes. Pretend you’re Count Dracula.
Here’s an assignment for tonight, and I hope Ms. Lockwood will flunk you if you don’t do it: Write a six line poem, about anything, but rhymed. No fair tennis without a net. Make it as good as you possibly can. But don’t tell anybody what you’re doing. Don’t show it or recite it to anybody, not even your girlfriend or parents or whatever, or Ms. Lockwood. OK?
Tear it up into teeny-weeny pieces, and discard them into widely separated trash recepticals. You will find that you have already been gloriously rewarded for your poem. You have experienced becoming, learned a lot more about what’s inside you, and you have made your soul grow.
God bless you all!
Really, really good

Eeeeeey Isaac has sisters! \o/
From left to right: Reiltin (aged 23), Meabh (26), and Isaac (19).
this would probably be some kind of family photo or summat which is why they’re all serious and isaac’s cleaned himself up a bit. Usually Isaac would be slouching and trying to flatten his hair and loosen his tie, and Reiltin would be too distracted telling everyone how smart they look to stand still, but Meabh would be about the same - always composed but not putting up with any shit from the other two.
Reiltin is a fashion designer and Meabh is something like a lawyer/politician and Isaac is just…. uh … Isaac so far. don’t want to say too much yet but more will come soon! :D
