(Bright) Things

Newly, angstily graduated from college. One day I will look back at this blog and edit out all the embarrassing parts.

There will be on-point reblogs relating to identity and gender politics. Other frequent topics include but are not limited to: reproductive rights, movies, awards for movies, seasonal distractions like elections or figure skating, rad gifs, and messages and implications of really important literature like HP and ASOIAF.

Actually saw this a couple times on my dash and couldn’t be bothered to read through. This is the definition of a payoff.

She was beautiful, elegant. Like a tall clear glass filled with raw pasta.

If White Characters Were Described Like People of Colour in Literature @ Buzzfeed

Worth reading for #16 alone.

Comment: “When someone writes their skin is like “mocha” or “chocolate”, for me it ignites my imagination. It’s better than just saying the person was black, It’s a beautiful description and implies a certain warmth or sweetness of the character.”

Literally said “Ew” aloud when I read that.

Was giving a *)))nostalgia*** look at the old arts & entertainment blog I had in high school (which had like, 2 other readers) and came across an old post that was clearly written at the height of my Bronte revival phase, back when they announced that they were doing a Wuthering Heights movie. I suggested Cillian Murphy for Heathcliff, Eva Green for Cathy, and Eddie Redmayne as Edgar Linton. Am actually groaning/rolling a little internally at the thought of how great that would have been and how it WILL NEVER HAPPEN NOW.

What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he doesn’t have any additional expenses. This is a reward. He’s getting a $250,000 reward for murdering an unarmed black kid.

If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.

One of the more helpful and insightful things I’ve seen about depression/suicide in the last couple of days.

I first met her at a Sopranos premiere. Somebody was behind me and said, “I think you’re wonderful.” I turned around and looked down and said thank you and turned back around and I heard, “Don’t condescend to me, you son of a bitch!” I looked at this little, beautiful lady and she gave me some diatribe about something and I immediately fell in love with her.

- James Gandolfini on Elaine Stritch

You know that chapter from Louis Sacher’s Wayside School is Falling Down, where Bebe wanders into a classroom concealed within a hidden dimension and is kept busy with endless amounts of homework and the struggle to just get through each day with the occasional gratifying reward, until she figures out that it’s all a ploy to keep them un-attuned to what they really want and from reflecting on why they’re doing all of this in the first place? I find that story increasingly resonant/relevant day in and day out.
