I’ve been really down and stressed out for these last couple of weeks and today seems to especially suck so decided to turn to the face, voice and feet that always help my mood, Gene Kelly!
The Worry Song is a great song to turn to when you feel like you can’t do anything. I’m at work so King Jerry couldn’t make it into the picture u.u

The ubiquitous forms of address for women ‘Mrs’ and ‘Miss’ are both abbreviations of ‘mistress’. Although mistress is a term with a multiplicity of meanings, in early modern England the mistress most commonly designated the female equivalent of master–that is, a person with capital who directed servants or apprentices.

Prior to the mid eighteenth century, there was only Mrs (or Mris, Ms, or other forms of abbreviation). Mrs was applied to any adult woman who merited the social distinction, without any marital connotation. Miss was reserved for young girls until the mid eighteenth century. Even when adult single women started to use Miss, Mrs still designated a social or business standing, and not the status of being married, until at least the mid nineteenth century.

This article demonstrates the changes in nomenclature over time, explains why Mrs was never used to accord older single women the same status as a married woman, and argues that the distinctions are important to economic and social historians.

Abstract from Mistresses and Marriage: or, a Short History of the Mrs, also known as the most interesting article I’ve read all day.

Full text is available here, but if you remember one thing, how about that Jane Austen in 1811 is the earliest citation that the author can find for the “Mrs Man” form, e.g. “Mrs John Dashwood”?

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

KEEP POSTING I NEED TO KNOW! DONT STOP POSTING ABOUT THIS. IT IS NOT OVER!

yes but why are white people consistently cast in movies about like the Bible or w/e and no one bats an eyelash but when POC are cast in fairytales, period pieces, etc. it’s suddenly “historically inaccurate” like what the heLL

The only Latino character in the Avengers franchise was just killed off. So where's the fan outcry?

Is Agent Jasper Sitwell’s lack of popularity is a combination of bad luck and unappealing characterisation, or was it influenced by racial bias?
When Sitwell was killed off in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it was clear that his character arc had many similarities to that of Agent Coulson, who was resurrected following the hugely popular #CoulsonLives campaign. But a week and a half after Sitwell’s death, his equivalent fan campaign, #IBelieveInSitwell, is not exactly taking off.

So, why does everyone love Coulson so much more than Sitwell? What makes them so different?

Well, while Joss Whedon bumped up Coulson’s tertiary role to that of a lovable everyman hero in The Avengers, Sitwell was revealed to be a sleeper agent for the evil HYDRA organization. But as we already know, being evil has nothing to do with a character’s popularity. Just look at Loki, who tried to commit genocide in Thor and attacked New York in The Avengers, but is still widely beloved throughout Marvel fandom. If being a mass-murdering alien overlord isn’t enough to put people off, then Sitwell’s apparent HYDRA defection can presumably be humanized as well.
