Show!Melisandre

  • is reduced to the depressing stereotype of “strange foreign seductress with evil morals”.
  • mock davos for his son’s death.
  • taunts davos and pretty much blames the battle of blackwater on him.
  • has an evil vagina.
  • is reduced to nothing more than a nice ass and a mad woman.
  • seduces stannis.
  • actually gets naked at all apart from the birthing scene.
  • pretty much only used to be a sexual object or an antagonistic socio-path.
  • manipulates selyse into madness.
  • taunts maester cressen, and gives him a smug look as he dies.
  • is shown as “evil” when allowing people to burn, while daenerys is shown as a “hero” when doing so.

Book!Melisandre

  • never mocks maester cressen, is never cruel to him.
  • knows that cressen wants to poison her, but tells him that he doesn’t have to, giving him an outlet and a choice.
  • is friendly with selyse, but doesn’t manipulate her into madness.
  • doesn’t manipulate selyse into burning her own brother.
  • is only implied to have slept with stannis.
  • offers her condolences to davos for his loss.
  • actually respects ser davos.
  • her drive of helping stannis and saving the realm is a lot more proufound.
  • is much more than a sex object with questionable morals.
  • is regarded as a very beautiful woman, but not a sex object.
  • makes devan stay at the wall, cause she wishes not for davos to lose any more sons.
  • doesn’t care that davos never swears to harm her.
  • is the only one to visit davos when he is imprisoned.
  • is actually a human being, with human emotions.
  • doesn’t blame davos for stannis’ loss at the blackwater, cause davos was not the once to convince stannis not to bring her along.

(By Charles Bukowski)

If it doesn’t come bursting out of you
in spite of everything,
don’t do it.
Unless it comes unasked out of your
heart and your mind and your mouth
and your gut,
don’t do it.
If you have to sit for hours
staring at your computer screen
or hunched over your
typewriter

There’s really no other way to write…

" One night she took the initiative with the verses she had learned after hearing them so often. ‘When I stand and contemplate my fate and see the path along which you have led me,” she recited. And asked with a certain slyness: “What’s the rest of it?”
“I reach my end, for artless I surrendered to one who is my undoing and my end,” he said.
She repeated the lines with the same tenderness, and so they continued until the end of the book, omitting verses, corrupting and twisting the sonnets to suit themselves, toying with them with the skill of masters. They fell asleep exhausted. At five the warder brought in breakfast, to the uproarious crowing of the roosters, and they awoke in alarm. Life stopped for them.” "

Of Love and Other Demons

Gabo

kaash:

What [aaj jaane ki zid na karo] has become in Khanum’s rendition—a widely circulated recording from a mehfil in the 1980s—is a bewitchingly layered song, one with a cajoling, comforting, almost foetal ebb and flow to it, but also with the plunges, scrapes and gasps of a ravenous consummation. It has bliss, strife, love, sex.
[…] But what after these outlines have been described? How to account for the slightly torn texture, the husky tone, the maddening rass of the voice? And what to do about Khanum’s devastating deployment of the word “haye" in the phrase "haye mar jayeingey”? I once heard the Bollywood playback singer Rekha Bharadwaj say, “Yeh gaana hai hee ‘haye’ pey" (This song is all about the 'haye’). I think she is right, in that Khanum’s transformation of that word—from a jerky exclamation in the original to a dizzying upward glide, a veritable swoom, in her own version—has made of it a mini-mauzu, or thematic locus, of the lyric.

do we read the articles we share?

" We are getting a lot wrong about the web these days. We confuse what people have clicked on for what they’ve read. We mistake sharing for reading. We race towards new trends like native advertising without fixing what was wrong with the old ones and make the same mistakes all over again. "
