British-Somali songwriter, feminist, and musician Marianne Joan Elliott-Said, also known by her stage name Poly Styrene, is most notably known for being the founder of punk rock band X-Ray Spex.

She was born in Bromley, London, and ran away from home at the age of 15 with just £3 in her pocket, hitchhiking from one music festival to another. This adventure ended when she stepped on a rusty nail while bathing in a stream and had to be treated for septicaemia.

After seeing the Sex Pistols performance at the Pier Pavillion Hastings on her 19th birthday she thought that anyone could do what they were doing and so decided to form her own Punk Rock band, putting an ad in the paper calling for ‘young punx who want to stick it together’, and that was the beginning of X-Ray Spex. She eventually became a passionate feminist and posted a blog dedicated to women’s rights and defense of women.

She was described by Billboard as the “archetype for the modern-day feminist punk”; because she wore dental braces, stood against the typical sex object female of 1970’s rock star, sported a gaudy Dayglo wardrobe, and was of mixed race. She was “one of the least conventional front-persons in rock history, male or female”.

Needless to say, she was a total bad ass.

she’s also bipolar. role model <3

love her forever and Always

Jim Cummings appreciation post!I have been meaning to do this for awhile and when I found out that it was his birthday on the 3rd of November I thought it would be the perfect time.I adore Jim Cummings, he is one of my favourite voice actors, I love him. I know it isn’t all of his characters, but I showed a fair few. Also did anybody know he was Mr Bumpy, Cat, or Bonkers! I never knew that!! I haven’t watched any of them in years so I probably would pick it up now, but wow! That makes him that much more awesome.


Mr. Cummings is in everything. He was also Dr. Robotnik in both of the US Sonic the Hedgehog series and like, half of the NPCs in Skyrim. My brother can spot a Jim Cummings from a mile away and just calls it the Jim Cummings Game.

it’s 2014 why do boys still think girls like the smell of axe

it’s 2014 why do girls think boys like the smell of overpowering fruity floral perfume

It’s been 84 years, and I can still smell the fresh paint. The china had never been used. The sheets had never been slept in. Titanic was called the Ship of Dreams. And it was. It really was.

This made me laugh really hard and I’m not sure why.
