Clear Skies, Yet Clouded Eyes


Kiamil Pasha, ex-Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire, bids farewell to Queen Mary aboard HMS Medina whilst King George V accepts farewells from an unidentified official. The royal couple were on their way to India for the Coronation Durbar at Delhi. Port Said, Egypt, 21 November 1911

Emma/Harriet + Matching!


These two were supposedly based on a real couple, who said they wouldn’t board a life boat as long as there were younger people still aboard the ship. They both went below deck, presumably to their room, and that’s the last time they were seen.


Isador & Ida Straus

The couple had been married for 41 years at the time of the disaster. They raised six children together, and were almost inseparable. On the rare occasion that they were apart, they wrote each other every day. They even celebrated their birthdays on the same day, although they were well apart from one another. During the sinking, Titanic’s officers pleaded with the 63 year old Ida to board a lifeboat and escape the disaster, but she repeatedly refused to leave her husband. Instead, she placed her maid in a lifeboat, taking her fur coat off and handing it to the maid while saying, “I won’t need this anymore”. At one point, she was convinced to enter one of the last two lifeboats, but jumped out as her husband walked away to rejoin him.

When last seen by witnesses, they were standing on deck, holding each other in a tight embrace. Their funeral drew some 6,000 mourners at Carnegie Hall.

A monument to them still stands in a Bronx cemetery, it’s inscription reads: “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.”

I feel that even in this day and age people feel like they don’t have the right to be mentally ill, and I just think, if you broke your foot you would get an x-ray, and put it in a plaster cast and let it heal. And then you would do exercise to get it back to full health. It’s the same if you’re mentally unwell – go and speak to someone. It’s fine. (x)

"Vinyl survived, we managed not to kill it. Knowing that you’ve taken part in this fight… You can’t imagine the happiness it brings. Every time I see a kid going out of the store with a vinyl record under their arms, my heart beats faster. Music should only be this. An intense emotion."

Jack White

Happy record store day everyone!
