Since I’m a huge Patrick Wolf geek, I thought I’d write down all of the songs I know to be based on these three things (I do have 109 of his songs, after all). If you know of any more, let me know and I’ll put them in!
So there you have it. I’ll add to this, and again, if you have any you know of that makes reference to mythology, folklore, or literature- let me know!
Thanks to http://ohwhatatragiccost.tumblr.com/ we have some more!
MOAR EDITS (by me)
Hey everyone, so I’m working on some art. In this artwork I plan on having Vladimir Horowitz & Sergei Rachmaninov both sitting at a piano leaning into kiss each other. The view will be from the back, looking front on the piano.
I’m looking for reference photos- so people leaning into kiss (preferably sitting down), or just old pictures of men sitting down would be nice. Halp?
In Ireland, you go to someone’s house, and she asks you if you want a cup of tea. You say no, thank you, you’re really just fine. She asks if you’re sure. You say of course you’re sure, really, you don’t need a thing. Except they pronounce it ting. You don’t need a ting. Well, she says then, I was going to get myself some anyway, so it would be no trouble. Ah, you say, well, if you were going to get yourself some, I wouldn’t mind a spot of tea, at that, so long as it’s no trouble and I can give you a hand in the kitchen. Then you go through the whole thing all over again until you both end up in the kitchen drinking tea and chatting.
In America, someone asks you if you want a cup of tea, you say no, and then you don’t get any damned tea.
I liked the Irish way better.
