n. (1) the act of assessing something to be worthless. (2) a cute name for a pretentious, sarcastic young woman's tumblr.
This blog largely contains history, fashion, Doctor Who, and the historical fashions on Doctor Who.
I write Doctor Who fanfiction. Quite a bit of it, on a good day.
Here are my cute and funny tags, if you're having a bad day.
Hypothetically, I am a comic artist, seamstress, writer, and animator; but mostly I sit about drinking tea, wearing petticoats, and watching Doctor Who.
I said I wouldn't get a tumblr. Shows what I know.

Before the availability of the tape recorder and during the 1950s, when vinyl was scarce, people in the Soviet Union began making records of banned Western music on discarded x-rays. With the help of a special device, banned bootlegged jazz and rock ‘n’ roll records were “pressed” on thick radiographs salvaged from hospital waste bins and then cut into discs of 23-25 centimeters in diameter. “They would cut the X-ray into a crude circle with manicure scissors and use a cigarette to burn a hole,” says author Anya von Bremzen. “You’d have Elvis on the lungs, Duke Ellington on Aunt Masha’s brain scan — forbidden Western music captured on the interiors of Soviet citizens.” [x]

that feeling when you listen to a song with good heaphones for the first time and suddenly you notice 7 new instruments, a child singing harmonies in the background, and you’re just sitting there wide eyed and in love with the song all over again
Behind the Scenes of “All About That Bass” +
How are skinny girls supposed to feel love when your song is about loving only fat bodies?
I’m sorry, but how are fat girls supposed to feel when every advertisement, be it on television or in a magazine, when nearly every movie, shows only thin women? I am completely against body shaming, but the fact remains that there is very little positive representation for bigger girls. Thin women are considered the norm and are far more accepted and you see them everywhere you look in the media. So please, don’t take this the wrong way, but please just let me have a song that makes me, for once, feel good about my body.
ive also noticed that people always focus on one particular line of this song which apparently makes it “skinny shaming”
but nobody ever acknowledges the following lines?
the main theme of the song is giving love to larger women because larger women are so commonly shamed for their bodies, ignored by the media and generally given less love and acceptance than thinner women, but the song in its entirety is a message that all women are beautiful. People are failing to acknowledge that

So yesterday my grandparents found a big box of old 78s that they’ve had in an attic for years, and wanted me to transfer them to CDs. Most were in pretty great shape, no cracks and few scratches. Lots of 1930s sweet/hot jazz, British big band & swing and a few Decca classical ones. This one had its label peeled/scratched off on the a side, on the reverse was a Parlophone march.
90% sure by playing it it’s unleashed some kind of 70 year old curse.
Oh my god D:
here’s a bad idea: listening to this in the dark by yourself
I heard that some records made during the 30s had laughter on them because they believed that listening to laughter would make others laugh along.
My God, they were wrong.
i just scared the fuck out of myself
Play this outside your house on halloween.
ARE YOU READY TO HEAR SOME SYMPHONIES?!
I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!

For djrocca87, who wanted a Peri mix. I got very specific.
My Heart Flies: A mix for Peri after the Doctor.
Whether she's Perpugilliam or Queen Gilliam,
no matter what timeline or reality she lives on in,
and even if she seems to have gotten past some
of the things that happened, Peri never really
got over the Doctor.
