As a place for pained people to gain justification and companionship and love. And I’m not saying that this website is perfect. Not at all. It is also a place of judgement and hate and fear and sadness. Because I also think things balance themselves out like that. But my point stands. Tumblr has been my person to go to when there isn’t anyone to go to.
And August last year, that took a turn for the worse. I’m not going into detail, and I’m only mentioning this because it was what caused me to delete my second tumblr. I was running from the pain and sadness that this lovely blue dashboard had triggered in me. I had recognized that the dopamine and lackthereof was keeping me down and I left it all behind…. For like a month. More like a few months, but my point stands, it didn’t last. I kept looking for that person or people to go to, regardless of the upturn in my life.
That upturn is the reason for this long-ass post that a select few of you will read. I… i glaze over tumblr now. I look and look for that post, that post that will inspire me and enlighten me and push me to do things, or just make me laugh. I never find it though, because outside of tumblr, life has taken a turn for the oh so good. Just like the support group aspects of tumblr, it’s not perfect. But a few nights ago I discovered how better it is, and yesterday I remembered how much better I can make it.
If you haven’t figured it out yet: I’m quitting. For realzies. Being away from tumblr has never been hard for me, so I think I can survive for a little while in the real world. I have things to do now (homework), and memories to make (memories I have to make). I’m sure that I’ll come crawling back, and sniffly and heartbroken, but I’m going to try to really live again. Live the life I’ve rejected.
do not underestimate how many times i can listen to a song in a row
SEND ME A ♪ I WILL PUT MUSIC ON SHUFFLE AND GIVE YOU A SONG AND MY FAVORITE LINE FROM IT
nerds are actually way worse than jocks now, i’ve never seen a more entitled bitchy vindictive group than people who call themselves nerds
Lily Allen’s new song ‘Hard Out Here' owns Blurred Lines.
Except for the fact that a white singer is still using black bodies, particularly black women, as accessories and oversexualised examples. You cannot fight misogyny using racism.
Guys omfg this needs to stop, you really always have something to complain about.
Tumblr is seriously creating a generation of moralists who have nothing positive to say about anyone.
What if she had used white females? Would she have been white washing? And what if white dancers were “twerking”? Would you talk about cultural appropriation?
Please take a look at the video and notice the little man trying to tell her and the dancers what to do: he plays an important part in the video.
He is playing those people in the music industry who tell female singers that they need to be sexy and stuff to be successful, and he is also the one guiding the dancers.
He criticises her for having the body of a mother of two, he tells the dancers how to move their ass, and also tells her what expressions to make while cleaning the wheel rim.
Listen to the words. They’re fucking good.
#no one is exploiting those black women EXCEPT FOR THE GUY WHO REPRESENTS THE MUSIC INDUSTRY
i swear no one on this website is eVER HAPPY
when confronted with the accusation of racism lily replied with the statement that she didnt ask for dancers of a specific race but wasnt going to turn the girls down because of what colour they are, lily cant help being white the dancers cant help being black but theyre good at what they do in the video which is why they were employed in the first place not because of the colour of their skin
i swear to god this website is going to turn me crazy watch the video listen to the lyrics of the song this is the greatest thing i have seen in the music industry all year and its because of people like the person who added the bolded comment that we cant have nice things
TRACK: ARTIST: ALBUM:
This was a one take recording because I think that if you try to tweak your performance too much, it doesn’t sound natural enough and I can get too in my head. One of my all-time favorite songs (and artists!). The lyrics are phenomenal and I hope to one day be as amazing of a songwriter!
oh my talent
The notes make this really depressing as a guy reading this :(
Before I was even thirteen..
When I was 11
I’ve always felt bad about being fat.
I remember not wearing certain things because I was fat when I was 4-5yo
i’ve never not been worried about it
