not reticent, I'm Renaissance.
quasi-academic. too old for Tumblr.
some people call me Laura. some people call me Lola. other people call me other things.
ambivalent about most things. enthusiastic about food, reception studies, Pretty Little Liars & women musicians of the 1990s & early 2000s.

    you guys, my mom emailed me this video of the Indigo Girls and Missy Higgins singing “Finlandia.”

    maybe you did not grow up singing this song in church, but I did.

    someone needs to coin an acronym (or maybe one already exists) to describe the academic counterpart to FOMO (“fear of missing out”), that is, the state of being convinced that everybody else is doing way more work than you. 

    and that they’re working harder and they’re working better and no one could possibly be as much of an impostor as you. 

    and you can say this is insecurity talking, but these people, they keep posting on social media about all the fucking work they do. make them stop.

    Where do I begin.

    So I had the misfortune of finding out that a photo taken of me on vacation by my boyfriend, was stolen and used without my permission here on the lovely r/fatpeoplehate on reddit. It not only disappoints me that people think that this behavior is okay, but that this subreddit even exists and hasn’t been removed at this point. There are TONS of photos of (mostly) women posted there; selfies stolen their personal blogs/facebooks/instagrams what have you (WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION), and posted on this horrible subreddit for people to harass them and leave hundreds of negative comments bravely behind their computer screens where no one can see them. I have always struggled with my weight and found it hard to get dressed and leave my bed some days, and have only recently started to accept the person I am after years of depression and health issues. I feel extremely violated and hurt that someone thought it was okay to take something that isn’t theirs, and use it for their own amusement and kicks.

    We have since contacted reddit requesting them to remove this subreddit, but I find that doubtful considering how many removal requests they have probably received in the past for this forum, and it still remains active.

    All I ask from you guys, is that you can please signal boost this post and hopefully get this horrible subreddit taken down for good for the sake of the poor unsuspecting people whose privacy has been violated and self worth diminished by these garbage people who have nothing better to do.

    xoxo

    Fuck these people. Help me friend and many others who were violated and repost!

There’s an audio track called “Interview Flexi” on the end of the 2 disc deluxe edition of Goo. It’s an audio collage of songs from the album, which fade into the background, and overtop of which are tracks of the band members talking about the songs. Being Sonic Youth, a lot of the stuff they’re saying is pretty weird and has only a tangential connection to the songs they’re talking about. The quote on Kim’s t-shirt in this picture comes from her explanation of the song “Kool Thing.” This is the full text of that explanation:
“Lying on my bed, staring at the tapestry on the wall. There are two scantily dressed white girls. One has a dagger in her hand. They’re looking at a black panther up in a tree hissing at them. What is the meaning of this picture? Is it about Patty Hearst and the SLA? What did she fantasize about in that closet? Did she become a member of the SLA because women, being outside of the male-structured world, do make more natural anarchists? The conclusion: girls invented punk rock. Not England. Not the US. Girls.”
Not exactly a concrete, easily interpreted statement, but nonetheless I’ve always thought it was fucking awesome.

Courtney Love tells us about her 50 obsessions she can’t live without on her 50th birthday.

as obviously ridiculous/problematic as C.Love is, I still kinda want to be her.
