Azealia Banks - Yung Rapunxel
I LOVE the pure trippiness of this video and it’s a plain awesome song to trash to at 3am haha.
I see many people commenting and complaining about the Illuminati symbolism in the video and honestly I don’t know enough about it to comment.
However it looks awesome and I see faaaar too many boring same-o-same music videos of singers simply dancing with back up, looking all faux sexy to the camera, twerking or being all ‘meaningful’ singing with their bandmates to care. (Though that doesn’t mean I don’t like one or two of those videos on the odd occasion).
But to me this is what music videos are best at, just doing something crazy and outside the box because the music simply takes you somewhere without explanation or context.
It’s why I derive a lot of my inspiration from music and music videos.
Reblogged from my other blog.
There is a girl I’m friends with on my Facebook who very frequently mentions her sister (she’s the eldest of about 6 kids) but when she does it’s never simple, ‘my sister’, it’s always something more like:
'My wonderful, lovely, amazing, gorgeous sister!'
(At least 3 adjectives every time)
Now it’s likely because I come from a sibling relationship where if one of us wrote that on a Facebook status the other would pummel down the hall, kick down the door and scream, ‘GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!’
But I, very oddly, keep awaiting this Anchorman-whoa-that-esclated-quickly style moment where it stops being, ‘my wonderful, lovely, amazing, gorgeous sister!’ and starts being:
'My wonderful, lovely, amazing, gorgeous, curvaceous, comely, sexy, big-titted, fit, fine, divine, shaggable, hot piece o'ass sister!'
Every time I am so close to commenting,
is this Jaime Lannister?
…is this Cesare Borgias?
tea rooms were places where tea was consumed recreationally in a private ceremony
japanese tea servants, women called geisha, often met many men here and married their hosts becoming housewives, or worked as courtesans (prostitutes) while still young
the practice originated in the 600s when large numbers of poor people were displaced
the most beautiful women worked as prostitutes, hosts and held ceremonies for wealthy men (samurai) in teahouses
as many geisha were motivated to secure a mate, some developed elaborate demonstrations of their skills in dancing, self adornment and calligraphy
it was, in a sense, a mating game for those who chose to take part
Is that supposed to be humorous? It’s a genuine question.
Only i have never read anything more uninformed and inaccurate in all my days. As well as vague, I love the pan throw ins of the words Geisha and Samurai, you do realise they were very particular types of people; aka not every girl in Japan was a Geisha and not every man was a Samurai.
Read Wikipedia. Not something I usually say but honestly for someone as blind as the person who wrote this it would actually help.
society: oh you have your period? well you have two options.
society: you can use sanitary pads, which make you feel like you are wearing a diaper, and have the added fun benefit of being extremely uncomfortable and give you the extreme paranoia that they will not be enough coverage and at any moment with any movement or sudden sneeze you'll bleed over onto your clothes and walk around all day with blood stained trousers while everyone points and laughs at you.
woman: sounds awful. what's my second option.
society: a penis shaped wad of cotton that you shove uncomfortably inside yourself and it catches the blood before it leaves your body.
woman: still seems pretty awful.
society: wait! it gets better! there's the outside chance that using those will kill you!
woman: well, are they at least free? like how men can have access to free condoms? i mean, it's not like i'm choosing for this to happen.
society: HAHAHA! that's funny. no, you have to pay for them. and they're really fucking expensive.
society: oh, and if you tell anyone that you ARE on your period, your judgement, opinions, and reactions are going to be dismissed as the crazy ramblings of a lunatic.
woman: i think i'll go with my third option.
society: what third option?
woman: i think i'll bleed on everything you love.
Christ yes, sanitary towels and tampons should definitely be free!
worukun asked: I don't understand- how was The Impossible racist? It was just about a families struggle and survival after a horrific disaster...
Dude. It’s about a white family trying to escape after a horrific diasater, in freaking Thailand!
This wasn’t fiction, this was a real thing and have you not notice how there are essentially NO Thai people in the film and the ones who are, say nothing; they are left completely unheard even though it’s them who have to deal with the devastation. That family can just bugger off on a jet home at the end of the film but it’s the people of Thailand who have to deal with the real shit. They’ve had their friends and family killed, their livelihoods destroyed and their home completely decimated. And yet Hollywood still manages to make it all about white people.
This isn’t a one off this happens all the time, POC and those of non-white ethnicity are very commonly shunned in the world of film. I just was left gobsmacked that a film based on a real and recent tsunami that killed about 160,000 people in East and South-East Asia still shoved the people it effected the most, not even into supporting roles, but as extras! The severe lack of tact and just the plain problem with bloody ethics is just outstanding.
The original family were Spanish! They had to secure white actors to get a budget so they changed their nationality! Isn’t that in itself a little fucked up? Spain is still a 3rd world country and very much unaffected by the Tsunami but they still couldn’t even let them be Spanish because, as I said, according to them, white people only care about other white people, Americans only care about other Americans.
Sorry I didn’t mean to target you if that is how it felt.
But I am kind of stunned you felt you needed to ask that question.
This is totally out of the blue but I just remembered the film ‘The Impossible’ and got really freaking rageful.
I think that film is positively revolting and was honestly shocked and appalled at the lack of protest it received. Because it is a film that essentially gives an 8th (possibly more) of the world the middle finger and says, ‘We don’t care about you or where you live, we just want to know when the pool bar will be reopened’.
But here’s a thought; if you struggle with what is so totally wrong with film’s like ‘The Impossible’ then let’s take it from a purely movie goers perspective.
Hollywood, probably (yeah no definitely) the most influential and widespread media producer in the world, has settled upon this concept that white people (to which it would argue to be it’s ‘mass audience’, a false in itself) can only have the capacity to care about other white people. Even worse if you happen to be American as this usually stems to the further idea that Americans only have the capacity to care about other Americans.
Now as a member of the audience, especially applicable if you are white and American, how does that not piss you right off? How are you not monstrously insulted but that? That this unrelenting media source advertises, to the world, that you are close-minded and selfish individuals.
Does’t it make your blood boil? That Hollywood demonstrates you to care more about freaking animals then other human beings simply because of trivial shit such as the colour of their skin or the language they speak. Because, I’m not like that, and I know most people are not like that. One of the many reasons films like ‘The Impossible’ make me feel so disgusted is because I think, ‘how dare you insinuate I’m anything like that. How dare you insinuate I don’t care’.
So here is an idea, next time a film like ‘The Impossible’ comes along don’t just mindlessly reach for your wallet in the cinema foyer. Think. Put that $7 back in your pocket and walk the fuck away. Demand more credit as an audience member and a consumer, demand some God damn respect and respect for, in this instance, people who have lost so much and couldn’t even be given a chance to tell a story that was theirs.
If you don’t respond then we are going to continue to just get the same rehashed shit on our screens rather than actually hear some incredible stories from all over the globe. And we are going to continue getting unjustly treated as, not only dumb, but also as arseholes.
Mm. I’ve been seeing people post their full images lately ; v ; I’m a little embarrassed to post full image really, but I just wanted to post up a bigger version of spots I liked. I have a lot of mixed feelings for this drawing. There’s a lot of things I really like, but I almost feel ashamed of how it all came together. I had so much trouble trying to meet the size requirements. I draw so small… > n <
I wanted to try to manipulate the mood of the drawing with the colours, but I’m not really sure if I was successful. I think in future projects, I’ll just do safer things.

Going to the doctor’s Wednesday to get some of this looked into but I was wondering if I could get some advice here too.
I keep having periods of really fast heart rate, I can feel it pulsing around my body and hammering against my chest (even when it slows afterwards I can almost hear it in my…

Anyone know what might be up with me? =(
