My contribution to the 13 crowns Ghostbook
Once there was a beautiful servant named Okiku. She worked for the samurai Aoyama Tessan. Okiku often refused his amorous advances, so he tricked her into believing that she had carelessly lost one of the family’s ten precious delft plates. Such a crime would normally result in her death. In a frenzy, she counted and recounted the nine plates many times. However, she could not find the tenth and went to Aoyama in guilty tears. The samurai offered to overlook the matter if she finally became his lover, but again she refused. Enraged, Aoyama threw her down a well to her death.
It is said that Okiku became a vengeful spirit (Onriyō) who tormented her murderer by counting to nine and then making a terrible shriek to represent the missing tenth plate – or perhaps she had tormented herself and was still trying to find the tenth plate but cried out in agony when she never could. In some versions of the story, this torment continued until an exorcist or neighbor shouted “ten” in a loud voice at the end of her count. Her ghost, finally relieved that someone had found the plate for her, haunted the samurai no more.

Need your guinea pig to be battle ready? Sean McCoy from Virginia has got you covered with a custom set of scale-mail!

McCoy says that he will be donating all profits to the Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue in Virginia, which aims to rescue, rehabilitate and find homes for animals in need.
My sister sent me this and at first I thought “No fucking way did Miley Cyrus try to cover Parton’s Jolene”.
30 seconds in and it quickly changed to “holy fucking shit”
Miley Cyrus - Jolene
FUCK THAT IS GOOD.
Well shit. *slow clap*
This is actually REALLY well done. But people saying “she’s actually good at country” need to realize that it’s where her roots are. She IS Billy Ray Cyrus’s daughter after all.
i’ve loved Miley Cyrus for years and this just adds to how awesome she is.
This is an incredibly good cover.
there’s an armadillo on my dashboard and i’m not sure what to do
