You know when you read something and you have to stop every other page because you want to read it out loud to the person sitting next to you?
This is like that. Only you’re the person sitting next to us and we can’t read it out loud because this book doesn’t come out until January!
Grrr. C’est la vie.
Holly Black’s The Darkest Part of the Forest marks her triumphant return to her faerie roots, and will be out January 13, 2015. Until then here’s a taste:

Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of themselves. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for.
Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. The faeries’ seemingly harmless magic attracts tourists, but Hazel knows how dangerous they can be, and she knows how to stop them. Or she did, once.
At the center of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking.
Until one day, he does…
As the world turns upside down, Hazel tries to remember her years pretending to be a knight. But swept up in new love, shifting loyalties, and the fresh sting of betrayal, will it be enough?

And this cover! Beautiful, right?

LORDY LORDY THIS IS GORGEOUS

I want… This…

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY

More like SLAMuel L. Jackson, amiright?

(Seriously though, this is Samuel L. Jackson performing slam poetry about BOY MEETS WORLD, and it is my everything.  If you had any doubts about Jimmy Fallon’s new gig, BOW DOWN.)

I’ve tended to think that if Human Sexuality courses are lectures, dance is the lab. This poster about dance is excellent etiquette for sex play! Excellent!
Putting science into practice ;o)

This is an awesome poster and a cool concept!

Descend into Decadence with "Submerge" →

afterellen:

This lesbian film tackles Gen Y instant gratification in a country full of abundance. To submerge oneself can be a willed activity—or not. The act of submerging connotes indulgence, but at the same time can imply a externally or internally forced suppressed of one’s desires.

The polysemy of submerge is played upon by writing duo Sophie O’Connor and Kat Holmes in their first full-length feature, Submerge, a film that considers, without judgement, how one lives in a world of instant gratification.

Looks like a really cool film
