eggeworth:

  • cup your hands around them protectively
  • lift them from the ground
  • gently kiss their fuzzy heads
  • say “peep peep” calmingly so as not to be pecked
  • peep peep

in honor of Mean Girls’ 10th anniversary, here’s an incredibly subtle but completely extraordinary joke that you’ve probably never noticed from the movie (I saw it at least a dozen times before it dawned on me): Regina George started a rumor that Janis Ian was a lesbian in the 8th grade, but it wasn’t out of malice… it was because Janis told her that she was Lebanese

if i ever met satan the first thing i would say is “did it hurt…when you fell from heaven??” It would be hilarious. The next thing I would do is probably burst into flame and get impaled dozens of times but it would still be hilarious

It took me a long time to realise I was a feminist, mostly because I always thought being a feminist meant burning my bra, shaving my head and becoming a lesbian. I used to quickly defend myself whenever I called out sexism and my guy friends called me a feminist. “I’m not like an actual feminist” I’d insist. God forbid, right?
One day, after I said this, a friend asked me “Why not, don’t you want equality for women?” I answered “Why, of course I do”. And then she said the most liberating thing to me. She said: “Then you are a feminist.”
See, the media always like to put up images of angry, negative, man-hating extremists that are nearly impossible to relate to, and then slap the “feminist” label on her. And even if women try to be feminists, an army of journalists are ready to pick her apart and point out all the ways she isn’t feminist enough: “Beyonce is too naked, too married, too pregnant, too sexy, to be a feminist.” Never mind the fact that she’s trying to sing about the unrealistic expectations of female bodies, look how short her skirt is! It’s no wonder girls have no idea what feminism even means anymore.
Feminists are depicted as “angry extremist” rather than “empowered woman”, women are picked apart and discouraged in feminist critiques, and girls like me are scared to call themselves ‘feminists’. We need to bring it back to basics.
I want to remind girls that being a feminist is easy and important and a positive thing. I do want girls to be feminists, and I would love for girls to be more informed about inequalities in our society and to actively pursue ways to change this. But above all, I want girls to support other girls, all girls, even if they aren’t feminists. I want to perpetuate this new kind of feminism that is inclusive, approachable and relateable. Because feminism is about supporting girls in whatever they choose to do. It’s about loving girls, and feeling proud of girls, and empowering girls, and being all “HEY YEAH, GIRLS RULE”. That’s it. That’s literally what this whole damn thing is about.

Hilary Hahn, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra & Vasily Petrenko - Violin Concerto: III. Fly Forward

theauditory:

In the past week we have been graced with announcements from orchestras and their upcoming seasons as well as the Grammys (the most noble of annual musical announcements). Last week the New York Philharmonic released it’s 2011-2012 season. Many people have noted the fact that there is not a single performance of a composition written by a female composer. I forget: When was the last time the Phil even premiered a piece by a female composer? 2007?

Despite Jennifer Higdon recently receiving the Pulitzer Prize for Music, her neo-romantic masterpiece ‘Violin Concerto’, recorded last year by Hilary Hahn, was snubbed by most of the major orchestras throughout the country. Where was her Grammy nomination? I guess it went to Lady Gaga

It appears that these orchestras, the NY Phil and LA Phil, are still stuck in their old ways and, for the most part, are still trying to appeal to their older and more faithful patrons to bring in the cash. The image of having fresh young faces is one thing, but to make a statement through performance is another. Both Gilbert and Dudamel have certainly made musical statements in their respective inaugural seasons, but their progressive tendencies were a little off the mark.
