I hope you like feminist rants and fandom and kittens
because that's kind of my thing.
I originally started listening to FEMM almost by accident, but I’m really fond of the sound they offer up. There’s a savage lack of apology built in there, a sort of cold rejection inherent in the pop sound. The processing and production add to that disconnect, a layer between lyrics and meaning, like leaving a break-up message on someone’s answering machine.
"Dead Wrong" might very well be an apotheosis of this sound in one direction; not a break-up song, but a harsh rejection of the very idea of a breakup. I keep comparing it to Taylor Swift in my mind, for no reason other than the obvious contrast. This is not a lament or a firm rejection, it’s a dismissal of the concept. A flippant and almost callously raised eyebrow, perplexed by the very idea that this loss has a meaning.
FEMM is great I love FEMM so much right now
what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?
It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870
I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.
I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question
oh that is me. to a tee.
I am one of those people. But let me explain something to you. The telephone was an aberation in human development. It was a 70 year or so period where for some reason humans decided it was socially acceptable to ring a loud bell in someone else’s life and they were expected to come running, like dogs. This was the equivalent of thinking it was okay to walk into someone’s living room and start shouting. it was never okay. It’s less okay now. Telephone calls are rude. They are interruptive. Technology has solved this brief aberration in human behavior. We have a thing now called THE TEXT MESSAGE. It is magical, non-intrusive, optional, and, just like human speech originally was meant to be, is turn based and two way. You talk. I talk next. Then you talk. And we do it when it’s convenient for both of us.
This girl was crying and begging the policeman not to hit her or any of her friends. Then the policeman started crying as well and he said to her: “You just hold on girl.”
The photo comes from protests happening in Bulgaria right now. Students are protesting poverty and corruption in Bulgaria’s Socialist-backed government, chaining themselves to the doors of Sofia University and clashing with police outside of parliament.
After the photo was taken it quickly went viral
this picture is so powerful
