I hate everything and I want to die


to me, historical Jesus the man is more interesting and inspiring than the biblical mythical Jesus


I’m so jealous of people from Europe who get to grow up near castles because I love history and I hate America for its lack of castles

Portraits of Elizabeth I of England from 1546 - 1600.

Like most monarchs of her day, Elizabeth was careful that her portraits depicted her as she wanted to be seen: young, strong and like a man in a woman’s body, so that her people would respect her and accept her as their ruler. Many paintings of the queen in old age present an eternally youthful Elizabeth. She had full control over the distribution of images of herself. In fact, she rarely sat for portraits, so one sitting provided a ‘pattern’ that was then repeated in various forms. Because of this it is hard for us to get an idea of what she really looked like.

In her book “Elizabeth the Queen”, Alison Weir describes the 25 year old Elizabeth as: “tall and slender, with a tiny waist, small bosom and beautiful, long-fingered hands, which it pleased her vanity to display to advantage in a variety of affected poses. She had a swarthy complexion like that of her mother, although she made a habit of whitening it with a lotion made up of egg-whites, powdered egg shell, poppy seeds, borax and alum, which made her face appear white and luminous. She had inherited also Anne Boleyn’s long, thin face, high cheekbones and pointed chin. From her father she had her red naturally curly hair and high, hooked nose.”


“Two thousand years later, the Christ of Paul’s creation has utterly subsumed the Jesus of history. The memory of the revolutionary zealot who walked across Galilee gathering an army of disciples with the goal of establishing the Kingdom of God on earth, the magnetic preacher who defied the authority of the Temple priesthood in Jerusalem, the radical Jewish nationalist who challenged the Roman occupation and lost, has been almost completely lost to history. That is a shame. Because the one thing any comprehensive study of the historical Jesus should hopefully reveal is that Jesus of Nazareth—Jesus the man—is every bit as compelling, charismatic, and praiseworthy as Jesus the Christ. He is, in short, someone worth believing in.”

On the topic of old Emmy snubs I’ll also say Jeremy Irons should have at least been nominated for The Borgias


People talking about Emmy snubs and I still think the biggest snub of all time was Steve Carell’s 6 years playing Michael Scott and never getting an Emmy
