Kitten calls for backup
It doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. We don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up and silent with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm. We don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care inside your heart. There’s no mirror in your way when you’re laughing and smiling and happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments where you are truly yourself.
"Kurt spoke to the underdog, the music freaks, the outcasts, the people fed up with top 40 and hair bands. He changed not just how music was played, but how we listened to music."
20 years after Kurt Cobain’s death, we asked Talib Kweli, The Pixies, Girl Talk, radio host John Richards and more how they remember Nirvana’s frontman.
"There are some people - whether it’s Ian Curtis or Bob Dylan Or Kurt - whose messages and lyrics and personality truly is bitter than a guitar and a stage and an audience. And that can be the most powerful thing. […] and then you have people that just have a huge emotional presence. I think Kurt had an incredibly deep and powerful emotional presence that made it so that he didn’t have to take step one in any direction, because the sound of his voice and his intention of what he was doing onstage was enough to blow an arena full of people away. Coming from the hardcore scene where most of the singers were just fucking insane - to see someone that could just stand and scream his throat raw and have that be enough was really something. I’ve never been in a band with someone like that. And I never will be again, that’s for sure." - Dave Grohl
I think I’m allowed to tell you that Joseph Gordon-Levitt signed on as a producer for the ‘Sandman’ film, and I had a fantastic day spent with Joe talking ‘Sandman,’ and his knowledge and commitment to it impressed the hell out of me.
It’s true.(via neil-gaiman)
All of the win!!
While a gay man might casually mention his husband, or a lesbian might out herself by talking about her girlfriend, bisexuals are often wrongly assumed to be straight or gay depending on who they are with. Spelling out that they are bisexual can be misconstrued as rejecting a current partner or declaring themselves up for anything.
Faith Cheltenham, president of the national bisexual organization BiNet USA, was often presumed to be lesbian when she dated women. When she met the man who would become her husband, she worried people would assume she was straight, invalidating the work she did to come out.
But when she tries to correct that assumption, some mistake it as a sexual invitation. They say, “Why would you tell me you’re bi when your husband is right there?” Cheltenham said.
