Soooo, someone may or may not have watched a free on demand episode of Outlander on Saturday “just to see what it’s about” and then that same person may have, immediately upon that episode’s end, subscribed to Starz from her remote (instant gratification) and then may have binged watched every episode available thereafter. Someone may have a problem with TV.
But! Turns out there’s a lot of info of the Jacobite rebellion of 1745 on JSTOR (duh), so I’ve compiled a nifty list of articles should you need something to fill the time between Outlander episodes. Lord knows I do.
- "Some Unrecorded Incidents of the Jacobite Rising," The Celtic Review, 1910
- "Jacobite Refugees in Gothenberg After Culloden," The Scottish Historical Review, 1991
- "Highland Motives in the Jacobite Rising 1745-46: ‘Forcing Out" Traditional Documentation and Gaelic Poetry," Proceedings of the Harvard Celtic Colloquium, 2000/2001
- "Some Notes on Attainted Jacobites," The Scottish Antiquary, or, Northern Notes and Queries, 1891

"the raven" only its about macklemore. thanks for following my blog
once inside a thrift shop dreary, while i browsed there, weak and weary,
over many a quaint and curious greatcoat of forgotten bore—
while I nodded, puissance sapping, suddenly there came a yapping,
as of some one whitely rapping, rapping at my bargain store—
“‘tis some visitor,” i muttered, “rapping at my bargain store—
only this and macklemore.”
Reunited and it feels so good. #simba #loveofmylife #catlady via Instagram http://ift.tt/1rXhDiv

When I began to lose my eyesight, when the world began to fade away from me, there was a time among my friends … well they made, they poked fun at me because I was always wearing yellow neckties. Then they thought I really liked yellow, although it really was too glaring. I said, “Yes, to you, but not to me, because it is the only color I can see, practically!” I live in a gray world, rather like the silver-screen world. But yellow stands out.
ThinkProgress: So what do you think the priority needs to be: do we focus all our energy on ending illiteracy, or do we focus on fostering a love of reading in kids?
LeVar Burton: I wish I knew. What I do know is that a sustainable society needs both. You need to teach your children how to read, and you need for them to love to read. If you want free, independent thinkers, people who can discern for themselves, people who want to actively participate in a democracy, you want them literate. If you want to control people, if you want to feed them a pack of lies and dominate them, keep them ignorant. For me, literacy means freedom. For the individual and for society.
