I am very sorry for my absence on tumblr this past month. I just moved to Portland, Oregon for Portland State University’s MFA program, so I’ve been focused on packing/unpacking and settling in. I just wanted to update you all that this blog will also be used for my student artwork, inspiration, and any writings I might have for class. I also wanted to let you know that I’ve already started another installation and will be posting photos of my progress soon!
Why is there a pop culture seesaw of glorifying and disrespecting curvy and thin women? We can’t help our body types and we certainly don’t need other people we don’t know singing songs, making movies, and writing articles about what they think we should look like.
Stop the scrutiny, and if you want to make songs praising your own body type, please do it without insulting the other. All you are doing is making a mockery of your own sex and gender.
I met Lili Taylor today at the coffee shop I work at. I was so nervous and confused about her being in a tiny city and a tiny shop that I started to shake a little and forgot to put ice in her iced espresso.
She still tipped me and she winked at me on her way out.
My sly way of making sure she was Lili Taylor was solely in the statement posed as a question towards her which was, “You were in High Fidelity, right?”
I ruined any of the small amount of “cool” credit I earned for myself almost immediately after because I geeked out about this two minute encounter for the rest of the day.
That was my first celebrity experience, hopefully I’ll be better at pretending to be a normal person next time.
