Vortex Breakdown

I go by Airstyle - this is my corner of the internet.

Welcome! I post a mixture of weather and fandom posts (Sherlock/Doctor Who) and answer weather questions. Expect bouts of fangirling, surges of science, high levels of snark, and a general abuse of tags.

COSMIC LOVE: HANGOVER HELL TO ELECTRIC HEAVEN. Cosmic Love was composed in about an hour: I had a hangover crushing down on me and when the song arrived it came as sweet release. That name was always a joke: a bad working title that’s ended up sticking to it forever: neither the words ‘Cosmic’ or ‘Love’ appear at any point in the lyrics. The song is about being blinded by love. At first you want to escape, to find your way out of the darkness. You see a map in the stars above and you know that you can find your way back home, but then you realise that your love is the darkness, so you decide to stay: you give yourself willingly to a starless existence. Pretty much just that, yep. A lot of people read this song in a lot of different ways. I like that a lot and I encourage it. David Vann - one of my favourite writers out - once wrote something beautiful for me about this song. I will always be grateful for that. I drifted through a dreamy day making the dreamy video for Cosmic Love. I danced around in whirls of smoke and autumn leaves and a bazillion lightbulbs, me all catsuited, hot to the point of hallucination. I love the dress that Petra made: hundreds of little lights congregating around the heart: my electric blood, electric love. This is my favourite song from the album, so the video had to be special. I knew wanted my friends Tabitha and Tom to direct it. I think it’s the best video so far and I hope you like it. As I was typing this I found another leaf in my hair … x

  #THIS is my absolute favorite song    #and I don't mean favorite from this artist    #I mean my favorite song    #it's just so massive in scale    #so symphonic and percussive    #and the music video is great too    #go do yourself a favor and look this up    #SO GOOD    #florence and the machine    #music    #cosmic love  
My eyebrows, which I’ve never taken much notice of in my life before, Steven’s decided are the most amazing comic devices. Now in the scripts, as a stage direction, instead of saying, “The Doctor looks peeved” or “The Doctor looks annoyed,” they just write, “Eyebrows.” I’m supposed to do something with my eyebrows.

Maybe they’re just excited to have a Doctor with less “delicate” eyebrows this go around! (We love you, Eleven, disappearing eyebrows and all).

  #doctor who    #peter capaldi    #cool it airstyle    #let's be real moffat is just excited by the very concept of eyebrows  

I made this to go along with those silly gifsets I’ve been making, aka: Mycroft: The Series.
Because I plan on making more, it now has its own section on my blog. Please feel free to take a look and marvel at the effects of hiatus on someone who drinks far too much coffee and gets carried away easily.

"if you were dying, if you were being murdered, in your very last few seconds, what would you say?"

  • "goodbye, john"
  • "to the very best of times, john"

i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again


how does america even function like it sounds like a video game or something. grand theft freedom.

  #want a gun?    #fine it's in the constitution and regardless of my personal opinions the constitution grants you that right    #but that does not excuse you to be an asshole about it    #don't use your right to own a gun as an excuse to make a show of force    #it's a needless display of terror    #and there's a hell of a difference between owning a gun in your home and carrying massive weapons to innocuous public places    #if you feel safer carrying a pistol in the scetchy part of town after dark that's one thing    #but bringing guns to school concerts is a whole other concept    #the grocery store is similar    #leave it in the car you paranoid bastard    #politics    #guns    #america    #american problems    #cool it airstyle  


Now, you let me grieve, hmm?

  #almost certainly that long    #they're not going to start filming the special until january 2015    #with the episodes being filmed later in the year    #which would be consistent with season 3's timing    #which would probably give us a christmas special with new years episodes at the earliest    #which would then be 2016    #cries    #why did i get obsessed with a show that has 2 year hiatuses with only 3 episodes a season    #???    #sherlock    #except this time we have a hiatus defined by fandom conflict over mary rather than solidarity in the believe in sherlock movement    #not quite as happy this go around    #sighs    #on the bright side these long hiatuses force our fandom to be prolific producers of fanfic

  #i am legitimately excited for this movie and it's not just because i'm of fan of benedict cumberbatch    #despite what my mom likes to think    #rolls eyes    #no i'm excited because alan turing was a fascinating human being    #and his story is so damn tragic    #what a mind    #a father of computer science    #turing    #the imitation game    #benedict cumberbatch  


Anyone who makes fun of fanfiction has never read really good fanfiction.

years later juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. upon receiving the picture she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of amal

"The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant."
