The only thing serious about this space is that it's seriously me.

This is not a spoiler free blog though I do try to tag everything appropriately.

I'm a 25 year old writer, working woman, poet and my long time goals are to finish a series of fantasy novels I'm working on and get myself and the play I'm writing to New York.

I Glee. I Glee hard. I also love many other things including all things Sherlock Holmes. Except that one thing...

This is not an Elementary friendly blog. As far as that goes this is a no fly zone. My personal blogging ethic is to live and let live. If you like it, that's great enjoy it. I can scroll past things I don't like. Hate blogging is whack so I don't engage in it. But I am a person, and I do dislike it, so every now and then I say something that express that. If you can handle that great, if you can't, this is not the blog for you.

on the ice bucket challenge

nofunphillips:

my dad died from ALS when i was 3 years old. he was 36. my mom was 33. that was 30 years ago. now i’m the same age my mom was when my dad died. and there is still no cure for ALS.

this is what happens when you have ALS: your muscles slowly stop working, one part at a…

theorlandojones:

This is a very serious disease* so I gladly accept the “bucket challenge”

*My heart goes out to all those who struggle with ALS but I am, of course, talking about the disease of apathy.  If (and hopefully when) Michael Brown’s killer is brought to justice and convicted of 1st degree murder, it still won’t prevent this from happening again. We cannot accept this as the status quo. We MUST continue the fight at the ballot box, in the media and by working to create systemic change. I’m not naive to the dirty politics (redistricting, voter ID requirements, etc) that will try to prevent us from our goal. But I refuse to give up hope. My “bullet bucket challenge” is not about pointing fingers and it’s not about being angry. Every shell casing in that bucket represents the life of someone who fought and died in the goal for civil rights and human dignity. As a member of law enforcement (yes I really am a reserve sheriff) I will not stand idly by while others violate civil and human rights under the cover of authority and I will insist that other good cops rise to the same standard as well. As a black man I will demand more from myself and my community. I will not allow outsiders to co-opt our struggle in order to commit violence in our name. I’m channeling my outrage into action so I no longer feel powerless. It’s not about black or white. It’s not about rich or poor. It’s about us vs. them. There are more of us — from all races, genders and identities — then there will ever be of them. And we will be victorious”

Supermodel Ataui Deng has been missing for 10 days, y’all. Had it not been for Roblé’s post, I wouldn’t have heard anything. 10 Days and NOTHING in the media?
*sigh
If you have seen her or know anything concerning her disappearance, email FindAtaui@gmail.com
Again, I feel this begs to be said again: Black. Lives. Matter.

OMFG

Fiction Week!
lillivati submitted to medievalpoc:

I spent all day reading Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie. It’s the best science fiction novel I have read in a very long time (and I say this as someone who adores SF!) The author is (to the best of my knowledge) white, but all human characters who are described are POC. It’s made very obvious by this that brown is the typical skin color. It also explores culture and imperialism in what I found to be a nuanced way though it is not a direct extension of historic or modern Earth. (Bonus? All the characters are referenced by default as “she” because the POV character’s native language doesn’t distinguish gender. It was sort of amazing what this did for the reading experience.)

This was the winner of the Nebula Award for Best Novel. You can read an in-depth review at NPR here.

One year, I taught this (Sociological theory) class and only used female writers. The journals were written by women, the textbook was written by females. Do you know what kind of responses I got on my student evaluations that year? {…} That I was biased, that I was only looking from one point of view… that I was basically a man eater. That’s the kind of things I’d get from the students… The semester before, I used only male writers. Do you think I got any kind of feedback like that then?

"Not a single word."

Dr Rebecca Erikson, my professor, in her introduction of epistemology and challenging the main narrative

(via marloscruzin)

I like this quote because it underscores not only how important it is to create a counternarrative to the dominant ones, but how much opposition, backlash and pushback there is to even the simplest challenges to the status quo.

My position? That just means we need to push even harder.

I did’t find these prints by reading Art Historical literature, they were barely studied and hardly written about. I found them because I ran through whole collections looking for artworks with depictions of black people. People have choices in the things they see, and therefore the history of art will always be rewritten.

Esther Schruder, Art Historian, on researching works for the Black Is Beautiful:Rubens to Dumas exhibition

It’s very telling to me that a majority of the art I’ve posted here has been the same method-searching through piles and piles of barely-cataloged stuff until I find something to share.
