I reblog random shit and I occasionally post some of my writing, when time allows.
Personal posts happen, as this is a personal blog.
I'm currently attempting to recover from an ED. It's a work in progress. I post about it sometimes, but with TWs if applicable.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF I NEED TO CHECK MY PRIVILEGE.
I'd rather know, learn and apologise than be a jackass.
Paul McCartney goes out onto the streets of Leicester Square and begs, to see if anyone recognizes him.
“I quite fancy getting out on the streets and anywhere and getting a disguise on, and begging for a while, and see if anyone recognizes me. So they dropped me off at Leicester Square. I collected about 4 or 5 pounds. I was out there for about an hour. There were some great people; this punk came up to me, and he turned out to be American, a visiting punk, and he said, “Are you Paul McCartney?” and I said, “Are you kidding?” and continued singing.”

I’ve Seen Better Days- Sublime
A few weeks ago in London Amanda showed me this video in email. She’d just got it from filmmaker Jim Batt. I watched it with the artist Judith Clute. When it finished, we made her show it to us again, and then again. We laughed and gasped in the same places each time.
I love stop motion, and I love imagination, and I love that it’s a rock video that’s fresh and imaginative. AND ALL STOP-MOTION.
The Guardian said,
There’s probably a metaphor in there somewhere relating to the open relationship Palmer has with her fans, but it also displays her willingness to bare all for her art. This feeling of being comfortable in her own skin can be seen in the stop-motion video – premiered here exclusively – for the excellent Want It Back, in which the lyrics to the song are scrawled on her body (bed sheets, walls and iPad). Talking about the making of the video, Palmer says: “I’m so comfortable being naked at this point that I almost forget … I’m also proud that that video has nudity, but it isn’t sexual or erotic … it’s using the body as a raw canvas, which I love.”
Filmed by Australian director Jim Batt, it’s a brilliantly intimate and anarchic representation of the song, the line “it doesn’t matter if you want it back, you’ve given it away” made even more open and honest.
This video is basically fuckin amazing and yeah! skin! happy woman body! freedom! awesome lyrics! great concept! yes to all of it. Thank you Amanda.
oh god yes. Cannot love this enough.

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line

Didn’t I, my dear?

First It Giveth || Queens Of The Stone Age
I’m in you
You’re in me
I can’t tell
You’re so cruel
More than me
It is true
Up your sleeve
I want some (come on, take it)
of all of you (it’s yours)
First it giveth
Then it taketh away
