    The song recounts a specific sexual assault (“One of the most shattering experiences of my life,” Grimes, who was born in Vancouver as Claire Boucher, told SPIN in 2012) by describing the psychic fallout: “And never walk about after dark/ It’s my point of view/ Because someone could break your neck/ Coming up behind you always coming and you’d never have a clue,” she lisps in her high, pinched voice. It’s a dazzling, paralyzing performance, in part because Boucher sounds almost playful, and in part because the skronking behind her—the song’s springy, propulsive synth line was one of 2012’s most unforgettable—indicates something other than victimization. “See you on a dark night,” Boucher repeats. […] But what “Oblivion” ultimately offers is victory. It’s the sound of one woman turning personal devastation into not just a career-making single, but a lasting anthem of transformation.

    Grimes’ Oblivion is the best song of the decade - so far.

    so today my personal trainer was trying to explain a technique and she was like well you know it’s like ‘bend and snap!’ from Legally Blonde. And I was like ‘Uhhh no you just didn’t say that to me?’

    A lot of the liberal Zionist brothers and sisters would call Edward and say, “Oh, you know, we agree with what you’re talking about, we just can’t say that in public.” Why? ‘Cause they were scared, because their careers were at stake, because they didn’t wanna go against their friends, because it made their Thanksgiving dinners uncomfortable, if they told the truth […] Said had the military folk here at his office — I mean the security at his office […] every time you go see the brother you gotta go through security check ‘cause of death threats and so forth. And we know about the 285 FBI files keeping track of him every minute, going back to 1971 […] The liberal Zionists didn’t want to undergo that kind of risk either, it was just too much: “Oh my God, if we’re gonna tell the truth, we’re really gonna have to pay a cost.” You don’t say? “You have to bear a burden.” You don’t say? I mean, I recall in 1982 Edward and I went down in front of the New York Times just to get the numbers of how many folk were killed in Lebanon — they wouldn’t even print the numbers. Then we had to march again just to use the word ‘occupation’ in the newspaper. Then they didn’t wanna call it a ‘wall,’ they called it a ‘divide.’ Deodorized discourse. […] Edward said […] “I got some plain speech about this catastrophe of Palestinians linked to not just the U.S. empire, but linked to the cowardliness of autocratic Arab countries who were tied for big oil interests.” It’s not just the pro-Israeli lobby in the conservative sense, it’s the big oil dictation that allows for the Arab complacency and subservience, even as they ‘talk about’ their concern with the Palestinians. […] Said, ‘Professor of Terror,’ that’s what Commentary Magazine said, right? He’s a ‘Professor of Terror’ for throwing one rock. But Israeli Defense Forces? Never called terroristic, ever, by the mainstream newspapers, right? […] Said’s legacy makes all of us uncomfortable, deeply so.

    The way a person decides to love themselves and their body can take many different forms. Some decide that the best way to show themselves love is to never wear makeup, and to be greeted by the glory of their spectacular face every morning, midday and night, seeing their splendid visage in bathroom mirrors or during a #NaturalBeauty selfie. This is all perfectly OK.

    Others, however, love the challenges and art present in the contouring arts of makeup. They love decorating their faces with colors and shades and glittering hues that can change the mood, or even shape, of their face. For many, makeup is an art form that they play with, not unlike playing dress up: it’s a way to experiment with your features as you see fit, by your own rules.

    While there are absolutely many women who feel poorly about themselves and use makeup as a way to ameliorate that, it’s rude to make that unfounded assumption about all women who wear it. It’s good to remember the uniqueness of our own individual modes of expression before doling out judgment for others who live life differently. Take a deep breath, and remember: what another woman puts on her face has no functional effect on your life.

    Wearing Makeup Doesn’t Mean You Want To Deceive Men - xoVain

    I’m going to add one more thing:

    IT IS OKAY TO WEAR MAKEUP BECAUSE YOU DON’T LIKE HOW YOU LOOK

    The problem isn’t makeup. The problem isn’t even you, personally, not liking how you look. The problem is our culture. If wearing makeup is what makes you feel okay about leaving the house every morning, I would rather you do that than spent the day anxious and miserable.

    Harm reduction.

    …you don’t think in left and rights anymore, you think in port and starboard.

    boatporn:

    Any vehicle at all is port and starboard. I can still do left and right hands, though.

    and if your my friends, changing lanes is ‘picking the windshifts’, literally every holiday.
