My favorite 2NE1 party banger also happens to be one of their most underrated b-sides.

SO BABY BOUNCE BOUNCE BOUNCE KEEP MOVING LESS GO

Except you didn’t like it when it came out! http://mcrothsresidence.com/2010/09/09/review-to-anyone-by-2ne1-with-blogger-tuc/

Don’t ask me how I remembered this. Likely I’m still bitter from being the only person who appreciated the song when that album dropped. I would listen to it and then get sad because there was no one for me to enjoy it with. So I guess I’m calling you out as payback. And also documenting that I have successfully taken you away from ballads and into the dark side of cray-cray dance music. You’re welcome.

Hahaha! Oh man, I totally remember really disliking a lot of kpop back then for reasons that I, admittedly, really like now. My outlook on things has changed tremendously through the years and I think it says a lot about where I’ve come post-reviewer era. I felt an obligation to be a critic, and with that came a ton of silly responsibilities like nitpicking and the art of seeking explanation.

Now, I’m just like: “eff the critics, eff the standards. Let’s dance!!!!11!!!1!1”

Okay, somehow forgot to respond to this, but I totally feel you. It’s part of the reason I decided to stay away from being a “music critic” in the traditional sense - I like being able to stick to my own standards as opposed to what everyone else thinks I should use, and throw those standards out when I feel like it. The best I can do is share music I like and try to explain why I like it. Past that it just becomes an exercise in self-aggrandizement - “Look how smart I am, look what great taste I have,” etc.

NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK  FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY

This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.

IF YOU ARE SEXUALLY HARRASSED YOU REPORT THAT SHIT

That is AWFUL. Please report it when you’re sexually harassed. If not for yourself, to try to protect future victims.

FUCK THIS SHIT.

Look, I can understand circumstances where, yeah, reporting it is difficult and you would choose not to.  There are times when you literally HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE and it sucks, and those assholes are taking advantage of it.  Not every woman can put her source of income at risk like that, and the one thing the article gets right is that the laws DON’T always work, you are NOT guaranteed protection.

Which is why we need to keep fighting for better laws and better enforcement of policies.  Which is why when you CAN report it, you SHOULD and FIGHT against this mindset that it’s just something women have to deal with if we want to sit at the boys table.  Harassment is NOT just an inconvenience, it is dehumanizing, it is upsetting, it is a weapon used against women and it is BEYOND NOT OKAY. 

And of course: why the fuck are you acting like women should have to control whether they report it or not instead of the very basic fact that MEN SHOULD NOT BE DOING THIS?!?!

FUUUUUUUUUCK EVERYTHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING.

You said all the things I meant to say but didn’t while blinded with rage and flailing at the keyboard. :)

What the holy FUCK?

what the actual fuck.

People Magazine’s #MostBeautiful Woman of the Year, Lupita Nyong’o sits down with another beauty icon, Alek Wek.

Watch as two beautiful and incredibly inspiring East African women sit down and talk about the importance of representation, unapologetically being yourself, and not forgetting that no matter how different one is perceived in the world, one can always be beautiful.

One of the phrases that truly sticks with me, said by Alek Wek, is when she states, “I’m so normal”. I’ve often heard people refer to her beauty as ‘alien’ and out-of-the-ordinary, but what many who do this often forget is that Alek Wek sees herself as none of that. She comes from a whole host of people who carry the same features that, according to white and Western standards of beauty, seem rare or unconventional.

Using any word that seeks to strip her appearance of any normalcy, casting her in ‘shoots and editorials that enhance and contrast her differences - especially when racially motivated, as I’ve often seen done - are both acts of othering and of enabling white supremacy.
