how do boys look good without makeup
Because society hasn’t told boys they look bad without it
"Give her hell from us, Peeves."
And Peeves, whom Harry had never seen to take an order from a student before, swept his belled hat from his head and sprang into a salute as Fred and George wheeled about to tumultuous applause from the students below and sped out of the open front doors into the glorious sunset.
Wow too bad Peeves wasn’t in the fucking movie

WHAT A GREAT POST
this is the most beautiful of all posts
one of my fave songs, will always know all the words
Sophomore year of high school my World History teacher played this and after school I made my mom take me to the store so I could buy a Billy Joel (who I had never heard before) CD and memorize all the lyrics to this song. Which I did.
I imagined myself very indie and cool.
Reblogging for the sheer effort of all those links.
Not long after the song came out, I sat down with my mom and read out all of the things that I didn’t know what they were and she explained them all to me one by one, since she was born in 48. It was awesome and I learned a lot. (A few of them she didn’t remember, but not many.)
I’m pretty sure this song is the reason I’m a history major.
ARE WE NOT GOING TO TALK ABOUT HOW AWESOME THIS IS
Harry Potter as a teen comedy.
Evidence that music placement is very important.
I swear I watch this every time it comes on my dash.
THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING EVER
