    Eames Lounge Chair — Charles and Ray Eames (1956)

    A still from one of the training programs in The Matrix Resurrections, directed by Lana Wachowski (2021). The new Morpheus was explaining something important to Neo again with my favourite chairs in the background. Those set designers have great taste!

    i only very recently realized that a lot of the people who talk about how gsa was cringe and made them homophobic are NOT in fact people looking back on own their past and cringing but people talking about how stupid the OTHER gays were and like. as someone who was definitely in the cringe camp for the short time i went to gsa meetings (during 2014-15), there’s a lot of things that i wish had been different about it. like i truly wish it had been a more productive space for the people who needed it more than i did and i wish my friends and i had had the self awareness to consider that at the time!!! we very much treated it as like the tumblr club and like. that is not the function that a gsa should serve. but also talking about how stupid and annoying you find the trans kids who are/were just starting to figure themselves tends to just feel. mean-spirited. like i joke about my own gsa experience and mogai tumblr all the time but its very different when it’s people from outside of it

    #like gsa did introduce me to trans people outside of my friend group who i otherwise would not have had much interaction with #and i’m so glad for that and i KNOW the space wasn’t what they would’ve preferred #and i regret that #‘gsas are bad because they’re cringe’ is not the answer though lmaooooo #i think ideally it is like. gsas should serve a specific function. beyond just doing day of silence. #but i think i’d there’s actual goals whether it’s like fighting for trans rights in the school or just holding lgbt-based events or whatever #depending on what a specific school needs. i think that would help a lot #a lot of our problem was we never wanted to do anything we just wanted to talk about tumblr #one of my biggest memories of gsa is talking about the whole sonic 4 real justice timeline so like. that’s where we are #and also like someone explaining complex aspec identities to our 50+ year old lesbian faculty advisor #we were DEEP in mogai tumblr era #she was consistently Not Great about nb identities so that was genuinely difficult but we definitely disliked her more than we should’ve #anyway i saw a tiktok complaining about GSAs and they said ‘it was 3 years ago so neopronouns weren’t as much of a thing’ #but how everyone there was still talking about niche identities and stuff and it’s like. yeah. #because for them it was tumblr club and that’s not a Good Thing but it just feels cruel to be like #‘stupid young trans ppl i hate them bc they’re furries and have weird genders’ like…. #ALSO i meant to keep these tags short but got swept up in it. but i do want to say #that i know a lot of the time these discussions are about how GSAs are very white spaces and that makes them unwelcoming #and my high school overall was overwhelmingly white so when i talk about my experiences i can’t really speak to that #i’m specifically talking about the tendency to just relentlessly mock trans kids for. exploring their identities with their friends?

    Am I watching my favorite (kinda shitty) musical 9 days late? Yes

    Is this musical (loosely) based on our favorite bsd feral clown irl author’s book? Also yes

    Is this the same musical how I gauge how much better my Ukrainian is? Absolutely

    #it’s kinda shitty bc late 90s early 2000s movies from Russia and Ukraine is the era where everyone breaks the fourth wall #and all the effects are the same kinds you see in early television #also loosely based bc nothing will fully adapt the absolute batshit descriptions Gogol has #it’s like taking irl Poe’s writing and multiplying it by at least 50

    This isn't necessarily like A Statement but I do want to observe that adopting clothes + mannerisms that actually aren't very strongly gendered but definitely make me feel more confident, comfortable, and like myself has everyone in my life to some degree commenting on my slide into 'masculinity'. fellas is it masculine to be confident and have energy and to wear comfortable clothing and to be overall neutral to one's own appearance

    #unfortunately yes it is bc we are in an era of hyperfemininity such as we haven't seen since the 50s.

    Not to sound like my dad but they really dont make celebrities Anywhere like they did in 80s & 90s hong kong… somehow every single one of these bitches could sing extremely well and dance and were really good actors and they were equally famous for all their iconic songs and iconic roles and sometimes they would also be amateur soccer players?? Celebrities and idols now don’t even have to be able to do any one of those things

    #comparing idols and even famous mainland chinese actors and singers to them is soo embarrassing cos a single one of them can do everything u #do but way better #even now when so many of them are in their 50s and 60s like they can and are beating these ppls asses #its not even the rose tinted glasses of nostalgia for me like it is for my dad bc i wasnt alive in the 80s #I think this batch of celebrities really were the cream of the crop they really represent hong kongs golden era #sidney talks shit

    80s themed party: janet jackson’s rhythm nation outfit.

    90s themed party: aaliyah’s tommy hilfiger outfit.

    2000s themed party: destiny’s child outfits, i’d wear beyoncé’s ofc.

    Salvador Dalí // The Persistence of Memory // 1931

    The Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory// 1952-1954

    " When asked about the limp watches, the artist compared their softness to overripe cheese saying that they show “the camembert of time”. The idea of rot and decay is most evident in the gold watch on the left, which is swarmed by ants. Ants, a common motif in Dalí’s art are usually linked to decay and death. He set the scene in a desolate landscape that was likely inspired by the landscape of his homeland, the Catalan coast. The influence of the Catalan landscape also appears in another element of the painting: the artist inserts himself into the scene in the form of a strange fleshy creature in the center of the painting. According to Dalí, the self-portrait was based on a rock formation at Cap de Creus in northeast Catalonia. Some scholars have also drawn a parallel between the self-portrait and a section of Hieronymus Bosch's The Garden of Earthly Delights (1510-1515) – on the right side of the left panel Bosch depicts rocks, bushes, and small animals that resemble Dalí’s profile with the prominent nose and long eyelashes. Similar versions of this self-portrait appear in other paintings by Dalí like the Great Masturbator (1929).

     "As the title suggests, the painting shows the disintegration of the world depicted in the original painting, reflecting a world changed by the nuclear age. The painting showed Dalí’s growing interest in quantum physics: he added rectangular blocks that represent “the atomic power source” and missile-like objects that reference the atomic bomb. In the late stages of his career, Dalí also produced numerous sculptures of melting watches including The Persistence of Memory (ca. 1980), Profile of Time (1977-1984), Nobility of Time (1977-1984) and Dance of Time (1979-1984). "

    "John could be impossible sometimes. He was driven to extremes. He could be almost near violent. When he acted like that, sometimes I wanted to give him a smack. But he was always determined to be something, to stand above.”

    "John was a good listener, but it’s what he didn’t listen to that took him where he thought he wanted to go. John had encouragement, but an enormous amount of negative energy around him;

    “That guitar; that’s what it was all about. Aunt Mimi told him ‘That guitar, John, you'll never make a living out of that.’ Did John listen? No. He didn’t listen to anyone who disagreed with his hopes. He followed his talent. Lots of people will tell others, ‘You can’t do that,’ and that affects people. But John wouldn’t be denied. There was a drive that was both admirable and overwhelming."

    Len Garry (Quarrymen bassist) about John Lennon for "When We Were Boys: The True Story of the Beatles Rise to the Top" by Larry Kane (2013)

    "He was, in my day, a cocky kind of guy, a young guy with a pointed nose who liked to start trouble, but yes, a dreamer. . . . He was also cynical. Would I ever see him as a peace activist with a beard and long hair? Never in those days, mind you. But then again, he was unpredictable. That’s what made him so exciting."

    Rod Davis (Quarrymen banjo player) about John Lennon for "When We Were Boys: The True Story of the Beatles Rise to the Top" by Larry Kane (2013)
