I’m in a weird place because this long after graduating from University I’m seeing a lot of the people I was close to starting to be really successful and I’m feeling a bit… behind the curve, I guess, but the project I really believe in is TLG and I think it has a lot of promise and like it’s hard for me to be patient and to persist with it because lbr it’s not paying the bills and pretty soon I’m gonna want to move out which will give me some bills to pay.

I hate the term “women of color”
Since fucking when is my peach skin not a color? Why must I be excluded from a group of women?

Like excuse me. Who the hell came up with the stupid dynamic of calling people white and black in the first place?

Sorry that someone re-appropriated the word “colored” and took it from being a derogatory term to mean impure or non-white, to be something of the positive connotation its starting to have when the fairness-complex has started to subside in some circles.

When I was a kid I literally picked at all of my scabs on my arm so that I could see the lighter skin left by the scar. I hoped that if I repeated it enough, I’d be white like the rest of my friends. So I’m sorry that you feel excluded, thats how people of color in this country feel all of the time.

at exactly the same time, from different people, two brothers reblogged the same thing

To add to the weirdness, we both use queues, so we weren’t even looking at it at the same time.

HOW DID YOU MAKE IT THIS FAR IN LIFE HAVING NEVER SEEN PUSHING DAISIES?

DON’T EVEN START WITH ME WHEN YOU MADE IT LONGER NOT WATCHING MEAN GIRLS. 

I was going to post a Pushing Daisies reaction GIF and then I realized it might be spoilery so I’ll just say: I’m happy and sorry for you, but this is an e-hug.

Oh! that’s very kind of you, but you don’t have to worry. I finished it yesterday. I am beside myself. Thank you.

Well then.

Anonymous said: Hi Hank! I was wondering what exactly your involvement is in the Pemberley Digital series' now, because when the Lizzie Bennet Diaries were first introduced, you mentioned that it was something that you had been thinking about creating for a while. When LBD or EA is up for an award or even mentioned though, only Bernie Su's name is credited. How did this come to be, and are you still involved in the creation, and production process?

edwardspoonhands:

I’m like a proud grandmother. At this point, I have so much going on with VidCon and CrashCourse and SciShow and Subbable and OTHER THINGS THAT ARE COMING SOON that I can’t be closely involved with Pemberley projects. And I don’t /need/ to be because Bernie and his team KICKS ASS! 

As is evidenced by how awesome Frankenstein MD is! IT’S SO GOOD! 

Having an idea is not valuable…making it real is. And at this point, I’m not even having the ideas :-)

FRANKENSTEIN MD IS SO GOOD

I laughed out loud and my Mom like asked the whole family what was happening it was weird.

I wasn’t going to reblog this but like

ugh. ugh ugh ugh.

In the words of my favorite music theory professor Dr. Blair Johnston, “Fighting convention by direct opposition only reinforces the centrality of the convention.” We shouldn’t need to prove that classical musicians can be attractive because attractiveness shouldn’t be a measure of validity. It’s a big, major problem now that classical musicians actually have to market themselves on their aesthetic rather than their skills. It’s ESPECIALLY a problem in the operatic world because many singers have noted that people who focus on being conventionally attractive end up harming their body’s ability to sustain an actual operatic performance.

This is also what causes controversy around performers like Yuja Wang. People’s opinions of her generally fall into two categories: “I can’t believe she performs in miniskirts!” or “Hell yeah, she performs in miniskirts!” How many people have you actually heard discuss her musicianship?

Fighting convention by direct opposition only reinforces the centrality of the convention.
