Elton John has a new baby boy, continuing his quest to have the cutest children in the history of cute. The new baby’s full name is Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John (yes, Daniel after the song, and no word yet on whether the Old Testament drenching in the first three names was intentional or not).
In other news, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John is still the cutest little thing I’ve ever seen in my life, and Elton, your shirt wildly clashes with the obvious blue theme of this picture. Did you just need neon pink sparkles in there somewhere?
I’m teasing I love you.

OH. MY. GOD. THIS IS GREAT!
Oh. Oh my God. It’s great. And then it hurts. And then it’s great again.
David, why are you wearing a letterman jacket and holding a Dostoyevsky novel? What is going on here?

8 Words You Should Avoid When Writing
As always, Orwell’s final rule applies: “Break any of these rules before saying anything barbarous.” There are instances where each of these words fills a valuable role. However, especially among inexperienced writers, these words are frequently molested and almost always gum up the works.
“Sudden” means quickly and without warning, but using the word “suddenly” both slows down the action and warns your reader. Do you know what’s more effective for creating the sense of the sudden? Just saying what happens.I pay attention to every motion, every movement, my eyes locked on them.
Suddenly,The gun goes off.
When using “suddenly,” you communicate through the narrator that the action seemed sudden. By jumping directly into the action, you allow the reader to experience that suddenness first hand. “Suddenly” also suffers from being nondescript, failing to communicate the nature of the action itself; providing no sensory experience or concrete fact to hold on to. Just … suddenly.
Feel free to employ “suddenly” in situations where the suddenness is not apparent in the action itself. For example, in “Suddenly, I don’t hate you anymore,” the “suddenly” substantially changes the way we think about the shift in emotional calibration.
Ok ok, but. At the risk of being a lil shit -
technically, Aladdin Sane can be Ziggy Stardust. Word of god (aka Bowie himself) described Mr (in)Sane as “Ziggy goes to America”. The album Aladdin Sane was released before he actually killed Ziggy off. The Ziggy Stardust Tour is meshed with “the Aladdin Sane tour”. The latter had a lightning bolt symbol up onstage, while he wore Ziggy’s make-up, and Ziggy’s outfits, but sometimes Sane’s (I only know from looking at photos, mind).
Aladdin Sane was a schizophrenic. That’s counted for why there were so many costume changes, because he had so many personalities that each, as far as I was concerned, each costume change was a different facet of personality.
The lightning bolt supposedly represents duality, Sane’s “cracked” mind. Is Ziggy just another facet? Does Sane sing Ziggy’s songs or vice versa?? Who knows, man. Bowie didn’t seem too bothered to make a great distinction between the two… Idk why anyone should need to.
Really, it’s not unlike eye patch Halloween Jack and slinky, suited up, “American” Halloween Jack.
