Alex Scally of Beach House, Pitchfork interview

The word “bloom” is much different than “grow.” It implies something goes away, and stays that way. It is very temporary. If someone just sees it as happy flowers, I feel really sorry for them, because that’s not what we want; I kind of wish it wasn’t coming out in the springtime, because I don’t want people to feel like that.

Do you know what algal blooms are? They are these terrible events that happen because all of these chemicals that pour out from the Mississippi into the Gulf of Mexico. The chemicals feed certain algae way too much, so the algae consume all of the oxygen in the water, and the water becomes anaerobic, and nothing can live in it. It’s this deadly thing, and it’s called an algal bloom. I don’t know why I told you that.

Victoria Legrand of Beach House, Pitchfork interview

You want the words to create feelings, and also these intense visuals. As a person who writes lyrics, it’s not always about literal heartbreak, but rather the negative space and the feelings around it. How do you describe a feeling without saying “this is the feeling”? How do you take something completely natural, that will eventually transfer to the listener, but not just settle for that instant feeling of “you hurt me,” and go to an imaginary landscape instead? It’s the most intense task.

And I’m sorry, but musicians are not chefs. You don’t like music because of the way it tastes, where [artists] never want to disappoint a paying customer. Music is about your feelings. Stop pleasing people. You please yourself, and if people like it, great.

French teacher:okay now say something in french
Me:Est-ce que tu aimes le sexe? Le sexe, je veux dire : l'activité physique, le coït. Tu aimes ça? Tu ne t'intéresses pas au sexe ? Les hommes pensent que les féministes détestent le sexe mais c'est une activité très stimulante et naturelle que les femmes adorent

Mary Ruefle, from “I Remember, I Remember,” Madness, Rack, & Honey (via commovente)

I remember standing in a field in Switzerland at dusk, surrounded by cows with bells around their necks, and reading John Keats’ “Ode to a Nightingale” out loud from an open book I was holding in my hands, and I started to weep — weep is a better word for it than cry — and I remember the tears slowly streaming down my face, it was that beautiful to me, and I loved poetry that much. I was eighteen.

cet été, je veux (et je vais, j’espère) lire ce livre que j’ai acheté hier

le livre s’appelle premiers matériaux pour une théorie de la jeune-fille

il est un livre publié par tiqqun

donc, selon le tite, on peut supposer que ce livre va être un oeuvre féministe

mais

le verso du livre dit (et ici je vais écrire en majuscules selon les demandes de grammaire):

Les concepts faits pour la guerre se passent bien de l’unanimité.  Il est dans l’ordre qu’ON leur reproche l’aspect infamant des réalités qu’ils font voir.  Ceux qui ont réussi à s’aveugler sur le fait pourtant massif de la Jeune-Fille n’en sont pas à une cécité près.  C’est la Jeune-Fille elle-même qui est le produit de la misogynie, non sa théorie.  Ouvrez n’importe quel journal féminin, vous verrez bien.  La Jeune-Fille n’est pas toujours jeune et pas toujours fille, elle n’est que la figure de l’intégration totale à une totalité sociale en désintégration.  Quand le crétin proteste contre l’évidence que « le monde n’est pas une marchandise » et que d’ailleurs lui non plus, il feint une virginité qui ne justifie que son impuissance.  Nous ne voulons ni de cette virginité ni de cette impuissance.  Nous proposons une autre éducation sentimentale.

ça m’intéresse

et j’ai lu que ce livre est très misogyne

donc, je veux le lire et après, je veux écrire quelque chose

(je n’ai pas su qu’il y a une traduction en anglais lole j’ai voulu le traduire.  peut-être que je vais le traduire et je peux comparer ma traduction avec celle d’ariana reines; j’ai la version française)

Anastasia

Favorite Characters - Vladimir & Sophie

god Sophia had a double chin and bingo wings and a booty like a shelf and she was still hot as fuck. and Anastasia was hot. and the empress was hot. All the ladies were pretty but totally different sizes and ages and things were wonderful.

Sophie wasn’t just on screen to be fat and funny. She was depicted as actually DESIRABLE. I was a little stick of a child when this movie came out and that definitely effected my views of beauty. As a much thicker adult it still means a lot to me now.

^ SO MUCH THIS

It made me SO happy to see a lady who wasn’t super skinny still being portrayed as being sexy and desirable…

We need more movies like this…with characters like this, who aren’t just treated like walking punchlines because of their bodies…

omg i need to watch this movie again
