I’m very biased I’ll admit because I only watched Jupiter’s Legacy for Matt Lanter, but George and George’s son “Hutch” (played by Ian Quinlan) were the only two characters that I cared about at all and I spent the whole series just waiting for one of them to be on screen.

I’m reading through this essay on bipolar currently, and it’s very interesting that seasonal affective disorder was first researched in 1845 (”Griesinger also described "seasonal affective disorders": melancholia usually has its beginning in autumn and winter, mania in spring. He also described rapid cycling and mixed types of affective disorders.”) while bipolar - called “manic depressive insanity” - was first properly talked about in 1899, becoming “bipolar” in 1966.

don't reblog i don't want any trouble and also disclaimer that i am not at all trying to make a defence of western christianity, with this ‒ as a postcolonial subject, as a bi and trans person, and as a cult survivor, i genuinely have no interest in doing that trust me ‒ but there's an odd trend i notice in posts that criticise christianity on here. that seems to work from the premise that christian exegeses don't exist and biblical literalism is the norm rather than 1 (one) approach to scripture. and to me that's v telling that these posts come from americans whose main exposure to christianity is american evangelicalism, american baptist and calvinist tradition and… are a v limited view of the actual scope of christian history and philosophy. again, not defending anything, i just sometimes wish people would say "catholicism", "evangelicalism", and or "western christianity" when that's what they mean

Shoephoria! at the Fashion Museum Bath
After being closed for a year, the Fashion Museum Bath is planning on reopening this spring with a show called Shoephoria! Since I--like the Dress Doctors--believe we think way too much about shoes now that we don’t get to wear hats, I am of two minds.
On the one hand, it’s fashion history and I am all for it.  The oldest pair is red velvet mules from the 1690s and the newest are running shoes from this century. Some were worn by actors like Noel Coward, by ballerinas like Margot Fonteyn, and by Queen Mary and Queen Victoria. When you get rich and famous people, you get some pretty fancy shoes.
On the other hand, I fear that the shoes that survived were those that were worn rarely if at all. So all the rare and wacky shoes get too much attention, when we should honor those every day shoes that were worn to bits by people who loved them. You all know that pair. The ones you wish you had bought 3 of since they served you so well day in and day out and let you do your work well while feeling just dandy.
The museum is selling tickets, so if you would like to go, click here to book them: https://www.fashionmuseum.co.uk/events/shoephoria
