You know your country is fucked up when the police go against people who are peacefully asking for security while thieves are entering small businesses and private homes.
¿Argentina en paz? ¿Dónde está la paz? ¿Eh? DA ASCO, SEÑORA PRESIDENTE. Cree ser la mejor en todo, cuando en la mayoría de las provincias argentinas hay saqueos, muertes e impotencia. Detesto su desinterés, Detesto que no pueda ver más allá de sus ojos. Detesto que sea tan necia & ni siquiera quiera cambiar eso.
No sea una mentirosa, por favor. Argentina no es seguro, Argentina necesita más seguridad.
This is the president of my country, our country, saying “we live live in democracy and in peace all 365 days of the year”, when just in the past two weeks, there have been lootings and riots in several provincies with a total of 10 casualties so far.
We’re really completely out of any words that might make some sense in explaining what the hell is going on with this woman, her government and followers. What does it take to BLUNTLY DENY events that happened in the past few days and keep happening as she speaks.
And why is an event meant to celebrate 30 years in a row of ~Democracy~ revolving around her and her late husband’s governments? Oh, right, they’re the saviours of the Universe, my bad, i forgot ~Democracy~ started with these guys in 2003.
#THEBOOKTHIEF: NEW POSTER. LIESEL AND HANS.It’s been a long time since I revisited this moment in the pages of The Book Thief. It was one of the very few times when the words were just there - I only had to be quick enough to write them down:Smoke was rising out of Liesel’s collar.A necklace of sweat had formed around her throat.Beneath her shirt, a book was eating her up.I also have to admit, it’s a luxury I’m finding easy to get used to. For a decade I’ve had to conjure these images from words and pages, or somewhere far inside me. Now they show me this, and it’s almost too beautiful, too fast.

It didn’t matter. The only thing that mattered was that they had Gendry.
For those who have never heard J.R.R. Tolkien sing, voilà!
“That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!” sung by the legend himself.
Coming Soon: NEW PAPERBACK, USA.Just over a month away, on October 15, this new paperback of #TheBookThief will be out in America, pretty much seven-and-a-half years after the original domino image was first released. I remember with that first cover, people often asked me about those dominoes, and what did they mean?I told them the answer was on p.407: the start of Part Eight.This time I wonder what Liesel’s looking at, at which exact moment, in which particular scene.
I love them ^^
‘“The Book Thief” movie posters I have made for school as my final work. I hope you like them as well and if any of you found a second of your time to say what you think (positive or not) I would appreciate it greatly! :)
“So you failed. Alright you really failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You think I care about that? I do understand. You wanna be really great? Then have the courage to fail big and stick around. Make them wonder why you’re still smiling.”
