You know, this is my first Radiohead pre-album hype as a rabid fan. My Radiohead fandom only went nuclear a couple of months or so after TKoL… (Yes, it’s possible to be a casual Radiohead fan, I was one for fourteen years or so. I couldn’t even have told you how many people there were in the band.)

#not sure whats happening here but i accept it 

the-king-of-ponytails:

i’m going to need that hashtag to become its own post and not even just the pairings but basically any scene that has a woman in it is questionable. doesn’t even have to be a human; a passage with a female cat is ridiculous and formulaic.

DELETED TOO SOON. for real though, and I don’t even know where he’s coming from with half the stuff. whenever it’s just the protagonist by themselves, its like “ah yes! I get this!” but then a female secondary character shows up and it gets SO uncomfortable. he was a little goofy about Oshima in Kafka, too. EH. 

mhmyup. the weirdest thing about it is that the writing is actually bad. for someone who’s possibly the best writer i’ve read. nevermind that a female character always has to be missing a dimension or having sex with someone or being objectively described—i’ve been reading sexist literature since about age 11 and having little problem stomaching it—my major problem with him is how awful his writing gets when there’s a woman involved. fukaeri enters the scene and all of a sudden he’s a 14 year old in his basement scribbling dirty thoughts in a schoolbook. which is so lopsided considering he’s a freaking master of surrealist fiction. dude can (and usually does) write whatever he imagines. there are cat conversations and paranormal dream trips to war torn manchuria and glowing unicorn skeletons that collect memories but every woman has the.same.shit.going.on. which i can only take to mean that’s how he wants his female characters reflected. don’t believe for a second that he can’t do any better.

I’ve photographed my share of talented artists, and hopefully will photograph more before I’m done. However, I can count on one hand the number of ones that seem to just “leave it all on the stage”. To say that Ms. Janelle Monáe gives 110% every time she performs, is practically an understatement….2000% is a lot closer to the truth!

The natural hair phenom is relatively new here, my hair is still permed but I’ve moved into just doing braids around the crown of my head & not flat ironing and I’ve gotten compliments on it so… Idk. Do what feels right for you.

It’s new?! Question: do you get the feeling it’s just new for DC natives? Cos another thing I’m not used to so much back where I’m from is the West African and Carib representation, and that’s where I also see a lot of the natural looks.

I took all the braids out (again) this weekend and now I’m in this weird place where I’m confronting (for the first time) that I’m ashamed that my hair isn’t natural. I know it’s the east coast, and maybe more particularly the DC, living that’s having that effect on me. I’ve never seen hair the way it is here, so much is natural and in so many styles and lengths and textures, it’s definitely a different culture. At home (California), it’s for the most part permed and straightened that I experienced. Here though, most of the women I spend time with don’t process it and a few months ago my roommate (also Californian) did the big chop and is now natural herself. Now I’ve got all these reservations about it that I never thought I’d have in my 20s. But then the inevitable happened. I took my braids out and washed my hair and couldn’t comb it. What am I actually supposed to do with it? It’s so thick and the curls are sooo tight. My fingers couldn’t even make it through the new growth (let alone anything fine-toothed) so I didn’t comb it. I just separated it at the bottom and twisted it around. I wish I had the creativity and endurance my sister has. She’s so good at styling and taming, but I just don’t have the will or upper arm strength for it. She did the chop in January and has been trying new things ever since. Me though, I’m more convinced than ever that I’m going to process it in the next few weeks because… again… what do I actually do with it?

Over the weekend my entire work folder for my computer disappeared. Not moved to another folder, not made itself into hidden files. Just vanished. Unprompted, in between two actions I made. Just a reminder to back up regularly anything that you care about and only have in digital form!
