Flurry Heaven

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. (Pride & Prejudice - Jane Austen)

Bit of rant. I just can’t believe that American Horror Story won the 2014 Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Costumes for a Mini Series, Movie or Special. Say what? I can’t believe it, over The White Queen? I thought AHS Coven could win because of the hype it had but seriously, no.

At least Game of Thrones won for Outstanding Costumes for a Series. The episode that was nominated, The Lion and The Rose, had some great outfits. That wedding dress alone most likely won it for them. That said, it’s won before so it makes me just a wee bit sad that Once didn’t win. Once’s nominated ep ‘A Curious. Thing’ had some great, great costumes. Everyone was decked out in Fairytale Land.

It’s amazing how the death of a celebrity can move us profoundly. We don’t know them personally and they don’t known us but we still feel connected. It just goes to show how much their work meant to us. Weather they made us laugh, cry, angry, excited by their films, novels, music, art, they gave us joy. That’s what Robin Williams did, he gave the world joy and we are better for it. 

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done, 
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won, 
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting, 
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring; 

But O heart! heart! heart! 
O the bleeding drops of red, 
Where on the deck my Captain lies, 
Fallen cold and dead. 

O Captain! My Captain! Rise up and hear the bells; 
Rise up - for you the flag is flung - for you the bugle trills, 
For you the bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths - for you the shores a-crowding, 
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning; 
O Captain! My Captain! 

Here Captain! Dear father! 
The arm beneath your head! 
It is some dream that on the deck, 
You’ve fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still, 
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will, 
The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, it’s voyage closed and done, 
From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won; 

Exult O shores, and ring O bells! 
But I with mournful tread, 
Walk the deck my Captain lies, 
Fallen cold and dead.  

- Walt Whitman
