and things were very historical
I'm Riet. I werf flammen at things I don't like and pickel the hauben of things I like. History. Crass jokes. Revolution. Conrad Veidt's impossible face. Mitchell and Webb. Big smooshy dogs. Germany. Dapper folks. Werfing flammen at bigots, especially Naztalgists. Uniforms. Folk Punk. Cowardice. Crushing depression. Pickelhaubes. Politics. Gulag. Genocide. The Aubreyad. Russian music. Klezmer. Cookies. Hornblower. Things what look like other things. And finally, the love of my life, the Red Army Chorus.

what’s the saddest English song about the Second World War? (Taps doesn’t count)

I am woefully under-equipped in this area for some reason.

the-real-goddamazon:

katemonkeyville:

#i hate to see him leave but i love to watch him go

^LMFAOOOO

i have a mysterious Thing for men’s fully clothed backs and I’m 500% sure it was this damn spangly jumpsuit that gave it to me.

sexual orientation: Will saying “stop right there

hannibal and alana: straight up the worst at pillow talk out of everyone in the entire world

this unwise quest for even more heart-wrenching renditions of ww2 songs has only confirmed that I have the most heartbreaking ww2 playlist of all time and you cannot possibly hope to top it. come at me bro.

especially Ekh Dorogi, which is merely another wistful bleh song until they amp it up and it hits you like a fucking TIDAL WAVE OF TEARS.

the good news is that my search for a decent Der Gute Kamerad that wasn’t sung by the Liebstandarte SS was fruitful (!!!). and i didn’t even accidentally download a bunch of neo nazi bands this time!

in praise of never buying new things

today i got

  • a work hat
  • an audio cable
  • a bike rack
  • an extension cord
  • A History Of The World in Six Glasses
  • another attempt at a history of the Russian Revolution in 150 pages
  • a large bag of peppers

for $24.42.

also i found a charging cord in the giant melting snow pile downtown. it works.

i am a proud cylinder.

today was so fucking productive i am wondering where the real submariet is. probably hiding in the closet with friedrich and some wine

that’s where all the wine went. submariet you bastard

i think i will join it in the closet.

relationship tip #78: ‘babe’ and ‘baby’ are cliche and outdated. try a fun new nickname such as ‘lieutenant’ instead

well I joined what is probably the most garb-tastic string quartet in west michigan

first rehearsal is tonight. we shall see.

he sounded suspiciously thrilled about me. Womp womp.

reason number 385 why Eastern Orthodoxy is great: all their names for liturgies sound like power metal songs.

well today was another complete failure

i wish i smoked weed so bad right now.

one because my house—indeed, the entire block—is encased in a fug of smoke

and two because i would like to no longer be conscious of most of my life.

the upside of being shanghaied into going to the basilica this morning: my hot (marine) former classmate and his army of pointy towheaded clone-siblings go to the basilica.

we were sitting directly across from each other. No complaints were heard from riet.
