sometimes you see a pun so artfully constructed you just have to stand back in awe.
I completely forgot I did this. I dimly remember working on this during an architecture meeting. It must have been really boring.
I have the feeling this was related to some fic I read, but I can’t remember what it was. I’m guessing it was maybe Avengers-related? You think?
this is the best thing I have ever seen oh my god
*Cries in happiness!* YOU MADE SCOOTER COULSON!! Come here! Let me love you!!
This is just so perfect in so many ways!
Shaun King has been going to work on this since day 1, never once trying to parlay it into some shameful “vote Democrat” plea (looking at you, Antonio French), and always investigating the connections of racist corruption and oppression going on in St. Louis/Ferguson. So if you’re going to follow somebody re: Ferguson on Twitter….
I have found my happy exploding place. I may never leave.
ALABAMA JAMES DARKNESS conceived by and written with great help from Kyle McCulloch
Born sometime around 1910 in Bellamy, Alabama, James Caffey (aka Alabama James Darkness aka James Darkness) is one of the most remarkable and enigmatic figures in the Blues genre.
While tales abound of bluesmen selling their souls to the Devil in exchange for fame or musical skill, rumors of the day claimed that Darkness had met the Devil at a crossroads and, through a well-timed distraction, managed to purchase the Devil’s soul instead. Darkness himself later claimed the Devil’s soul resided his guitar case, explaining the macabre nature of his songs. While this twist certainly makes a more entertaining legend, it is often cited as a possible reason behind Darkness’ sub-par guitar playing, lifelong poverty, and general lack of success.
Sixty years before the term Goth was coined, Alabama James Darkness was experimenting with a mix of Delta Blues and startlingly modern supernatural nihilism. His morbid focus and recurring themes (as well as his trademark white face paint and blood-red lipstick) would clearly inspire and inform late-20th-century bands such as Christian Death, Joy Division, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus and The Cure, to name a few.
