What does "gnossienne" mean

there’s a long ass definition for ‘gnossienne’ on the internet but I named my blog Gnossienne after the piano piece Gnossienne No.3 by Erik Satie, which is one of my favourite pieces by one of my favourite composers.

have a nice day, lovely x

I hate musicals. They’re always too cheerful and happy and unrealistic.

Yeah, okay. Cast a white dancer as Othello, a role written explicitly for a black actor/dancer.
