Look at all my little walking 8-bit 00Q babies ahhh <3

I suggest playing this song while viewing this for greater effect.

So I go to the school that Ben Whishaw once went to, and next year we’ve got 5 houses, one of which is called Whishaw (others are called Olivia(?), Harwood, Whittle and Pendleton).

Apparently our headteacher got in contact with him to say that he’s called a house after him and would he like to come in and say some words. But apparently Ben said something like ‘I’m flattered, but I don’t think I’m that famous’. Bless his heart. Ben you’re famous and adorable :3

—Ben Whishaw, Two Poems by Pablo Neruda

professorfangirl:

Ben Whishaw reading two poems by Pablo Neruda, “Ode to the Sea” and “Love Sonnet LXXVII.”

Death is only the stone of oblivion.
I love you. Into your mouth I kiss happiness.
Let’s gather firewood. Let’s light a fire on the mountain.

—E. A. Poe, "Annabel Lee"

professorfangirl:

Ben Whishaw reading “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe. I’ve never heard the strange, tender, spooky heart of it quite so clearly.
