I’ve seen some background noise pages around tumblr like rainymood, but I don’t think I’ve really seen this page recommended on tumblr.

myNoise.net

The plus of this page is without a doubt the huge list of sound machines that you can open in several tabs and mix as you like, ranging from natural sounds like rain and waves to industrial noises to relaxing tunes like in utero. It’s suitable as background noise for work as well as for relaxing and sleep.

Also recommended:

Someone find one with buzzing bee sounds and i will be happy forever okay

Saving for later. Yes.

Ok. I’m tired of the typical vampire, werewolf and fairy.I’m also tired of the occidental-centrism in mythology. Hence, this list. 

I tried to included as many cultural variants as I could find and think of. (Unfortunately, I was restricted by language. Some Russian creatures looked very interesting but I don’t speak Russian…) Please, add creatures from your culture when reblogguing (if not already present). It took me a while to gather all those sites but I know it could be more expansive. I intend on periodically editing this list.

Song lyric & quote print licensing info post

bigbigtruck:

Hey, it’s time to print TJ and Amal Volume 2! Which is going to be sold! For money! And it contains movie dialogue and copyrighted song lyrics all over the place!

Shit!

GUESS IT’S TIME TO BUY RIGHTS TO SOME CONTENT.

A quick summary - If you’re also planning on quoting songs or movies in your published work:
1. Try to avoid it, it’s expensive and a hassle. Cut, parody, or paraphrase if possible.
2. If you gotta do it, try to keep it to one licensed item.
3. Find who to contact by looking on the sheet music, not in the album liner notes
4. Allow 2-3 months for response time before press date.
5. READ EVERY LAST BIT OF FINE PRINT in the license agreement before you sign it. If you don’t understand a clause, don’t be afraid to ask.
6. It’s up to you to keep following up - don’t sit and wait for them to get back to you. If it’s been over 2 or 3 weeks, check in. And again.

Anyway, the details: (WARNING: THIS IS SERIOUSLY FUCKING LONG)
