Gold and black. GOLD AND BLACK.

I’m going to see FKA twigs tonight so I thought I’d do my first #slowjam. I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve been walking around wearing this and thinking the entire time, “I look so good tonight! Goddamn godDAMN.” And that’s what a good outfit does. It makes you feel like you are the baddest bitch around. And if you feel like you are, then you walk like you are and you talk like you are and therefore you are!

People might say fashion doesn’t matter, what matters is how you look on the inside, and yeah, okay, that’s nice, but looking hot as hell never hurts. And “looking hot as hell” is subjective, angels. You do you and don’t give a fuck if other people think you don’t look as hot as you feel; they don’t have to get it and they don’t have to agree with you to have it remain a truth. Just remember this works both ways: if someone’s fashion includes long, tousled hair and A&F, respect that and see that hotness too. Let people own their chosen aesthetic and encourage their confidence shown while rocking it.

"I follow the craziest people [on tumblr] and I love them because they have the most incredible creativity and imaginations and some how it has made its way into my music video!" [x]

"some how it has made its way into my music video "

somehow? really?





When spoken word artist Brenna Twohy tells you that she is an unabashed devotee of all things “Potterotica” — erotic fiction based in the magical universe of Harry Potter — your response probably shouldn’t be that her taste is “unrealistic.” 

Watch her full monologue here.

I’m happy to be getting to the point where I don’t have to feel weird about enjoying fanfiction, or having written a bunch of it. Partly it’s that the fandom experience has become more broadly shared. Partly it’s that I stopped giving a shit.

And as for why I like the porny sort of fanfiction, see above. She says it better.

I like sex with context. I like sex when it involves fully fleshed out characters. I like the backstories. I like feeling like these people do other things when they aren’t having sex.


i was going to make a joke, like, “god, who would let that gangly monstrosity of a sexy teen (plus a year) jesus hold their child, have they ever even seen him try to walk, this is so dangerous, look how he teeters on those shoes as he shimmies and shakes with joyous, unwieldy abandon, beautiful but beyond control,” except i couldn’t even get through thinking it, let alone typing it, because the truth is that the world would probably be a better place if we gave harry styles every baby. give him every baby and let him nurture their spirits and wrap their heads in luxury scarves. let him teach them the importance of keeping your potassium levels up. let every small boychild in the land be raised beneath the warmth of a one harry styles so that they too may grow to be a good-hearted fawn who loves everyone and everything so completely, so selflessly, with such prescient understanding as to what kind of love it is they need, and without question, that he must grow his hair out long and luscious just to contain such boundless radiance, just to try.



Porky Pig’s speech pattern deconstructed



Trying to look mean when I walk down the street so that creeps know exactly who not to fuck with.

judith beheading holofernes as praxis

In 1840, Friedrich Hebbel’s play Judith was performed in Berlin. He deliberately departs from the biblical text:

I have no use for the biblical Judith. There, Judith is a widow who lures Holofernes into her web with wiles, when she has his head in her bag she sings and jubilates with all of Israel for three months. That is mean, such a nature is not worthy of her success […]. My Judith is paralyzed by her deed, frozen by the thought that she might give birth to Holofernes’ son; she knows that she has passed her boundaries, that she has, at the very least, done the right thing for the wrong reasons.


is this beautiful solidarity too much for you, anon?

(also, i feel bad for you.)

Even though it might sound harsh and impolitic, here is the bottom line: if you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you. Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me. Most field stops are complete in minutes. How difficult is it to cooperate for that long?

The sense of entitled, sadistic, “moral disengagement” by the police is truly disheartening. How can they build trust in a community they are using for their role-playing FPS fantasies?
