nothing comes from nothing » allusions in music [1/1 language]

From Shakespeare to Swiss folk heroes to Greek tragedies to the Bible to non-fiction - if you listen for them, you can hear them. Sometimes they’re the whole song, sometimes they’re a only brief snippet of lyric, but what’s language without a little allusion?

"A little bit of one story joins onto an idea from another, and hey presto…  not old tales but new ones. Nothing comes from nothing." - Salman Rushdie

Thank you so much <3

I couldn’t finish my work and was dreading the meeting with my SSSup earlier today. I got to the office but since he wasn’t there I got my laptop out and there was this waiting for me in my homepage. It was like a real hug, a warm hug (because it’s rainy and coldish in here) that made me feel like I could face my Sup’s disappointment. I haven’t slept in over 30 hours but I wanted you to know that your unexpected gif made me feel better and that it all went well.

Over this weekend, as I become more and more enraged with the sheer lack of talent at my school’s publishing board, I will come back to this gif and breath in deeply C:
