[condescending fan voice] did you know there’s a thing called FRIENDSHIP????

[SHIPS THING HARDER]

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?

Go ahead, Gabriela! :)[image text] Gabriela is a bodybuilder, and people often say that she is “ruining her body”. Gabriela, just ignore those who try to make you feel bad about following your dream. It’s your body, you are the one who should enjoy it!

In medieval culture, an event like a royal christening is not a private party; it’s the public social event of the year. To not invite any person of rank to such an event is a deadly insult.

Maleficent is certainly someone you wouldn’t want at a party, but she’s also someone powerful enough that only a fool would ever dare treat her with such blatant disrespect. The only way the King and Queen could possibly have gotten away with not inviting Maleficent was to not invite any of the fairies at all; inviting the other fairies and excluding her is explicitly taking sides in the conflict between the fairy factions.

Which means they made themselves her sworn enemies, and she responded by treating them as such from then on. If you actually get into analyzing the social dynamics of the scene, it’s very clear that Maleficent was willing to show mercy at first by giving the King and Queen a chance to apologize for their disrespect to her. She doesn’t curse Aurora until after she gives them that chance and they throw it back in her face with further disrespect.

And yeah, if the King and Queen had done the properly respectful thing and invited her, Maleficent would have given Aurora a scary awesome present. Moreover so would the other fairies, because at that point both sides would be using it as an opportunity to show off and one-up each other. What they gave her before Maleficent showed up was basically just trivial party favors by fairy standards.

How do you know so much about the social dynamics of medieval fairies

How don’t you

 RGB Fabulous Landscapes by carnovsky

Leafy forests and palatial interiors become visible under different coloured lights in the latest series of wallpapers and screens by Milan design studio Carnovsky .

RGB  Landscapes by Carnovsky  at the Fondazione Adolfo Pini in Milan this month included a wallpaper that reveals various scenes depending on the colour of the LEDs shining on it. The combination of red, blue or green light reveals the interior of a grand building, a dense forest or a marching crowd. 

On the upper floor of the building, Carnovsky showed lacquered wooden screens and a handmade carpet decorated with animals and anatomical drawings.  In the courtyard outside, the designers installed the Atmospherics series of 20 screens depicting landscapes and meteorological phenomena, such as a sun bursting through the clouds. 

Last year we featured a lamp that uses three different-coloured LEDs to cast cyan, magenta and yellow shadows on the walls.

I love this idea SO MUCH.

i love the term “bear with me” because it could mean either 1 of 2 things:

  • asking someone to be patient
  • confirmation that the zoo heist was a success
