I AM A LITTLE WORLD MADE CUNNINGLY

Resident Ice Queen and Media Snob from The Hanging Gardens ♏


I never dreamed the sea so deep,
The earth so dark; so long my sleep,
I have become another child.
I wake to see the world go wild.

Ok you guys if Rizzle Kicks isn’t already your favourite musical duo please listen to this song about how the world is shitty but at least you have tea. Please listen to the fact that they make so much commentary about society - a lot of which are big topics on tumblr - and they do it all to an amazing chilled out beat and then talk about how earl grey is a “simple pleasure I need”.

You are welcome.

I want a superhero movie where the hero dies in the first ten minutes and the woman who was supposed to be the love interest puts on his costume and becomes an even better hero.

I want all of the advertising to be for the hero and none of the marketing to even allude to this death.

protip if a nerd dude tries to give you a pop quiz about the fandom on your shirt/bag/cosplay by asking you to answer a banal and obscure trivia question to prove you’re a Real Gamer, turn the question back on him. ask him about the thematic implications that bit of trivia…

I just found what may be the best description of Orphan Black, season one: “Sarah hopes that cleaning out a dead woman’s bank account will solve all of her problems. Instead, her problems multiply - and so does she.

Song: Oblivion
Artist: Grimes
Album: Visions
Played: 75,396 times.

The song recounts a specific sexual assault (“One of the most shattering experiences of my life,” Grimes, who was born in Vancouver as Claire Boucher, told SPIN in 2012) by describing the psychic fallout: “And never walk about after dark/ It’s my point of view/ Because someone could break your neck/ Coming up behind you always coming and you’d never have a clue,” she lisps in her high, pinched voice. It’s a dazzling, paralyzing performance, in part because Boucher sounds almost playful, and in part because the skronking behind her—the song’s springy, propulsive synth line was one of 2012’s most unforgettable—indicates something other than victimization. “See you on a dark night,” Boucher repeats. […] But what “Oblivion” ultimately offers is victory. It’s the sound of one woman turning personal devastation into not just a career-making single, but a lasting anthem of transformation.

Grimes’ Oblivion is the best song of the decade - so far.

JESUS. This whole vid is incredible, of course, but it’s all the little touches, so subtle and so deftly executed, that give me chills: the bullets in the funvee turning into stars, waterboarding from the cave transitioning into his drowning in IM3, the arc reactor pulsing like a heart. I’m in awe.

THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE
