Meet Lucy, a 3.2 million-year-old ancestor of ours. Though she looks like an ape, her knees were close together, just like a human’s! That positioned her feet directly under her body and made walking easier.
Look at that strut.
Get it, Lucy.
Send me your name and I’ll make you a mini playlist that starts with those letters.

No, thank you, Neolithics.
And now we wait.
This is exactly how one should act in public.

Not really, to be honest… usually that professor’s comments are extremely informative and helpful. This time I got several paragraphs telling me that my interpretations are wrong, and a million little things were changed. Maybe it’s because I’m sad and upset right now, but it feels as if some words were corrected… to prove a point? Or just to find at least one thing that’s wrong with every sentence? (For instance, I decided to use “the” in front of a French word that would’ve otherwise required a “l’”, and they were corrected to “the l’” which, as you know, makes no sense.)
nocompromise-noregrets said:*hugs* well, if it’s any consolation, I liked it, and it was really interesting (and I agreed with the bits I understood XD ) <33
Thanks! I’m happy you thought so. I don’t mind people not liking my work and criticizing it, but this time it really came out of the blue and is a bit harsher than what I can handle…
When you spend ages working on a paper that you think is decent and your favourite professor aggressively shreds every single one of your arguments to pieces, and you just want to write an email informing them that I’m sorry, but…
I’ll be in the corner of shame if anyone needs me.
facebookleavemealone asked: My department is surprisingly musically-inclined, and we keep joking about starting a band called The Misanthropologists. Only I'm not joking. Want in?
ABSOLUTELY. 100% yes. I’ve been wanting to write a song about Australopithecus. Let’s do this.
ME TOO PLEASE. Need a soprano?
We will have amazing harmonies. Xiphoidprocess is better at guitar than me so maybe I’ll play rhythm. I feel like we need a drummer drkrislynn
This has incredible potential.
Should I write cute marimba music for this or do you guys want me to completely make love to a drumset and shred the shit out of that double bass pedal?
McGill University has a departmental band made up of undergrads, graduate students and Dr. Andre Costopolous who is now the Dean of Students. The are a metal cover-band and they have the best name ever: Megalith
I always reblog Megalith. As an added bonus, here’s the poster I made to advertise their last show:
