Halloa! I fear this box may never provide a description that could ever truly satisify the definition of description.
In saying that, I'm 26, from Liverpool, with a passion for Liverpool FC, history, and Star Trek. Ahem.
I suppose I should note that I am so utterly staid that the colour beige has pursued legal action against me on a number of occasions. Damned legal obligations...
Oh, and this blog is quite probably PG-safe (I guess what constitutes PG is subjective, so probably) as I very rarely swear and don't post images of a fleshy nature.
Oh, oh, and I have a fascination (um, irrepressible obsession) with the two world wars, which is why they appear so prominently in my Tumblr. Macabre, perhaps, but it's principally centred on a desire to contribute, however insignificantly, to the "perpetuation" of those who suffered immeasurably in the wars.
John Lavery (Irish, 1856-1941) - Anna Pavlova (1911).Oil on canvas. Glasgow Museums: Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
The Observer critic wrote on 16 April 1911: “Mr. Lavery’s portrait of the Russian dancer, Anna Pavlova, caught in a moment of graceful, weightless movement … Her miraculous, feather-like flight, which seems to defy the law of gravitation.”

‘Southport, For a Holiday In Wintertime’, LMS poster, 1925
Ok, it’s seriously difficult for me to give credence to a poster portraying Southport as a place of bustling sophistication. This was a resort where I happily expended vast amounts on the arcades as a child and did - and saw - little else of note.
