this is not my image, its is also not edited… the truth is sometimes more entertaining/devastating
1. Pour out how much you think you need.
From 1995 documentary, Unzipped. In this scene, Eartha Kitt explains (in her unique way) to designer Isaac Mizrahi that she needs a gown she can move in.
maybe i wear lipstick so that
you will see my pretty pink mouth
wrapping around a coffee cup lid
and be distracted enough not to notice
that i am intelligent and powerful;
maybe i draw my brows into high arches
so you will look at my unimpressed skepticism
and overlook my spiteful glare
as a trick of my silly, girlish routine.
maybe i wear my heels so high and thin
so that i grasp your attention with the sway of my hips
as i listen to the click-clack-click against the floor
and know that if you should try to overpower me
i walk on sharpened knives.
maybe when i laugh at your worthless jokes
i am really baring my fangs
waiting patiently for the day
that i sink them into your neck.
i am not made of porcelain pleasantries;
you will find that these things are my armor
to keep you at a distance
so you do not step on me and shatter
my fragile control.
i am not a husk — i am not wilting.
i am turning my head
so that the fire blazing through my eyes
does not catch on the accelerant of your sweaty palms
and burn your bones to dust.
i am not your pretty girl;
i am a fury, a faerie, a phoenix —
a forest of werewolves and wendigos
that will carve out your chest
so that the next time i paint my pretty pink lips
i will taste the copper tang of your dying breaths.
This just increased my giraffe obsession.
i almost weeped
basically julia was the ex-prime minister of australia and she wasn’t the best at it but she was alright but the entire country hated her for the dumbest reasons while our newspapers (who are all owned by the same conservative fuck) published attack piece after attack piece on her for daring to do the following:
- paying any kind of attention to environmental issues
- paying attention to anyone who believed we should pay attention to environmental issues
- daring to suggest that maybe some of australia’s natural resources could go towards making australia a better place instead of going to mining bosses
- daring to suggest that mining companies should perhaps pay attention to the environment
- being the Prime Minister
australia, being a nation of idiots, fell for all of it and you couldn’t go anywhere without misinformed fuckwads repeating their bile. to see another one of those articles, combined with the poorly-shoehorned dr who refernce, set me over the edge
also worth noting that because gillard was prime minister during a hung parliament, public discourse regarding her was particularly bile filled primarily because the opposition thought they could trigger an election if they got the dirt on a few members of the government. cue the above bullshit about a “union slush fund” implicating gillard, and tony being the petty shithouse person he is, implemented a royal commission (that’s right, one of the highest levels of inquiry to pursue a political point) after he won the election to pour more scorn onto Gillard even after he won office from her. but anyway, cut to today and the royal commission has still yet to find any conclusive dirt on gillard but that won’t stop the herald sun getting butthurt about that fact.
wow, i really let it all go there
Lion, Tiger And Bear Raised Together After Rescue From Drug Dealer
Baloo the bear, Leo the lion, and Shere Khan the tiger were found locked in a basement undernourished and abused. The trio was originally owned by a drug dealer who didn’t properly care for them, leading to neglect and poor health. In 2001, Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary, a nonprofit that cares for animals in need, came to the rescue, and took them to Locust Grove, Georgia, where they were treated for injuries. They could have been separated but since at the moment of the rescue they were already friends, the sanctuary decided to keep them together. The abuse they suffered together as babies has bonded them into a loving brotherhood that does not recognize species.
