I’m not okay with this week. First Elaine Stritch and now James Garner. Just no.

Elaine Stritch, Tart-Tongued Broadway Actress and Singer, Is Dead at 89 | NYT
Plainspoken, egalitarian, impatient with fools and foolishness, and admittedly fond of cigarettes, alcohol and late nights — she finally gave up smoking and drinking in her 60s — though she took it up again — Ms. Stritch might be the only actor to work as a bartender after starring on Broadway, and she was completely unabashed about her good-time-girl attitude.
“I’m not a bit opposed to your mentioning in this article that Frieda Fun here has had a reputation in the theater, for the past five or six years, for drinking,” she said to a reporter for The New York Times in 1968. “I drink and I love to drink, and it’s part of my life.”

Anonymous sent: where are you its been a week since you last posted

I know. Life has been crazy.

Many of you don’t know this, but I have two jobs and lately I didn’t have the time to tumblr.

In adition to that my laptop crashed. I got a new one (thanks to my wonderful boyfriend) and I’ll be installing everything I need this week.

I promise that as soon as I have some time (and energy - I’m so tired lately) I’ll be making gifs and edits more often.

I just want to let you all know that life has been crazy these past few days, and I didn’t have the time or energy to keep up with tumblr.

I promise I’ll be back soon.

On this day in 1969 we lost the iconic, Judy Garland. But, before that day she amassed a body of work astounding in its range, amazing in its power, and timeless in its ability to exult, enthrall, and excite cross-generational audiences.

Judy Garland (June 10,1922 - June 22, 1969 ∞)

"When Dorothy Gale entered the Land of Oz, Judy Garland entered the realm of immortality. Every child knows Dorothy, but there’s far more to Judy Garland than the girl in the gingham dress. Across four decades she was perhaps the most dazzling star of all. Who else knew as instinctively what music was for?"

I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Today we celebrate Judy’s life and everything she brought into our lives. It’s not a day to be sad. It’s a day to honor her amazing existence and thank her for memories.

No tears today.

Let June 22nd be the day in which we’re happy because she lived.
