TABLOID HEADLINES WITHOUT THE SEXISM

"WOMAN IN TRACKSUIT PROBABLY NOT DISOWNED BY ENTIRE FAMILY"

"It’s mildly breezy outside."

Holy hell, the Vudu streaming video player is the shittiest shitstain piece of shit in the entire universe. I just spent four and a half hours watching a two hour and four minute long movie, because once every scene the player would randomly reset to the beginning of the movie. (And the only way to see your current timestamp and thus easily track back is to constantly keep your mouse moving so that the control bar doesn’t vanish.)

It managed to make Captain America completely unenjoyable. Thankfully it was a free movie credit; if I’d paid for that shit I wouldn’t be demanding a refund, I’d be suing.  Yes, for 3.99.  See if I care.

I’m just going to come right out and say it: media piracy is going to continue to exist until the legal options aren’t nonfunctional piles of crud.

And, having tried their product, I have no desire to ever give this company any actual money because jesus christ.

(IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A TWO HOUR MOVIE. I HAD OTHER SHIT TO DO TONIGHT. SHIT THAT I CAN’T DO NOW, BECAUSE I HAVE TO GO TO SLEEP, BECAUSE IT IS MIDNIGHT. AGAIN, I STARTED WATCHING CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER AT SEVEN FUCKING PM.)

Ahahahahaha, oh god, I just did an awful thing to plasmavora (ACCIDENTALLY! I DID NOT MEAN TO BE A TERRIBLE PERSON!) “No, it’s easy! Just take [bus] to [other bus]. The transfer point is right by [landmark], next to the Apple Store.”

Guys. Guys. It’s New iPhone Day. I sent the poor boy into a warzone.

SHINTARO OHATA

Born in Hiroshima, 1975.
Shintaro Ohata is an artist who depicts little things in everyday life like scenes of a movie and captures all sorts of light in his work with a unique touch: convenience stores at night, city roads on rainy day and fast-food shops at dawn etc. His paintings show us ordinary sceneries as dramas. He is also known for his characteristic style; placing sculptures in front of paintings, and shows them as one work, a combination of 2-D and 3-D world.

Japanese artist Shintaro Ohata (previously) currently has two new sculptural paintings on view at Mizuma Gallery in Singapore. Ohata places vibrantly painted figurative sculptures in the foreground of similarly styled paintings that when viewed directly appear to be a single artwork. In some sense it appears as though the figures have broken free from the canvas. These artworks, along with several of his other paintings, join works by Yoddogawa Technique, Enpei Ito, Osamu Watanabe, and Akira Yoshida, for the Sweet Paradox show that runs through August 10th

Ancient Underground City Found

Mustapha Bozdemir, while renovating his inherited house in Turkey, came across a massive subterranean tunnel system with cave-like rooms underneath the house. You don’t come across that kind of thing every day.

Further findings showed that Bozdemir had found an ancient Derinkuyu underground city in Turkey carved from the rock in Cappadocia thousands of years ago. It was an underground city that housed over 20,000 men, women and children. The underground city had hidden entrances, air ventilation shafts, wells, connective passages, shops, tombs, schools, and much more.

This is what the city would have looked like when it was functioning:

This is either Old News or they’ve just found another one (that artist’s rendering, for instance, dates back to at least 2008 on the internet, and I know they found one of these cities in the 1960s) but it’s still pretty damned cool.

The Only Thing I Love More Than Accepting People For Who They Are Is Telling Them What To Wear When They’re In My Presence

thatbadadvice:

Ask Amy, 2 September 2014:

DEAR AMY: I’m very accepting of same-sex marriage, and my wife’s sister is married to another woman. But this woman is very masculine in appearance, and intentionally so—as she seems not at all bothered when waiters at restaurants address her as “sir.” She has short, straight hair, uses no makeup, walks and dresses like a man, and doesn’t even own a skirt. She is so “butch” that I’m uncomfortable being seen with her. Is it asking too much for a woman —any woman— to at least display some feminine traits when with friends or relatives in public? — Right … or Judgmental?

Dear Right … or Judgmental?,

Look, I know you—a super-accommodating champion of LGBTQ rights who doesn’t actively oppose gay marriage and so is therefore the pinnacle of human tolerance and an authority on the subject of being the most accepting dude of all time—don’t want to play the gender police, but if you don’t ensure that whatever you imagine people’s genitalia looks like directly correlates to whatever you imagine their gender identity to be, who will?

All you’re asking is for the ability to dictate to another adult human being that they wear clothes they don’t want to wear, and affect mannerisms they don’t want to affect, in order to ensure you don’t feel weird in front of the server at Olive Garden.

With that in mind, I want to get straight to the crux of the question in your signature: are you right to demand that other people adhere to socially mandated outward signifiers of gender identity in your presence?

ABSOFUCKINGLUTELY! Man God created delicate lady helpers to complement and serve Man People like you, the extremely important boss of everyone. The whole entire population of planet earth anxiously awaits your ruling on how they should act and dress in your presence, lest a pair of slacks singularly usher in the end of everything you have ever known or held dear. After all, what if someone thinks your sister-in-law is a man, and then they saw you hanging out with your sister-in-law, thinking she was a man that you were hanging out with????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

When people defy gender norms in public, as if they have any right to a self-determined gender presentation or the wardrobe of their choosing, those who suffer most are the dudes they’re related to by marriage, because logically, flowers rainbows ballet unicorns dresses TOOLS BRICKS TRUCKS PANTS, clearly.

Oh sure, butch-presenting women, femme-presenting men, trans, queer and other gender non-conforming folks are frequently sexually harassed, assaulted and/or shamed both by other members of the public and by the police, politicians and elected officials who have ostensibly been tasked with advocating for and protecting them, but the real victim here is yoooOoooOoooOOOoooUUUuuUUUUuuu, a man-man whose manly manitude is wholly predicated on the sartorial subjugation of other adult humans according to culturally, geographically and temporally variable gender norms that have shifted, and continue to shift, significantly over tens of thousands of years of human history.

Have your wife craft a bedazzled menu of approved “feminine” traits from which your sister-in-law can choose (you wouldn’t do this, naturally, because DIRTBIKES BUD LIGHT FOOTBALL BUKOWSKI), and inform her that you won’t be seen in public with her unless she starts playing pretty princess for you. The situation should quickly resolve itself.

If you all aren’t reading thatbadadvice, you should probably rectify that.

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

Jesus Christ, American law enforcement. Get your fucking shit together.

Sexy Chick
Paloma Faith

strangesequitur:

"Thank you so much! We’re gonna do another slow one, and then I’ll have you all moshing and dancing later. This next song is a song that really pisses me off. And I’ve been enjoying doing this song at festivals, because I get to talk about how shit the original was. Heh. There was a piece of fucking shit that ended up in the charts all over the world recently, called “Sexy Chick” by David Guetta and Akon. And, as this is a punk rock festival, I can say “Kiss my fucking ass, it’s a piece of crap.” So we’ve… can we hear it for how shit that song is? So basically I’ve tried to make it into something good. And I love doing this, because it… shows that it’s not necessarily that shit, but… I don’t really like the way that Akon talks about women. So I’ve turned it into something that makes us feel better.”

- Paloma Faith, Provinssirock Festival 2010

#paloma faith  #sexy chick  #sexy minx  #literally all you had to do to NOT ‘be disrespectful’ was change TWO WORDS  #those words being ‘bitch’ and ‘whore’ which PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE BEEN OBVIOUS  #this version of the song has been stuck in my head for two days now tho

Three. Three days.
