Is this your only blog? Just asking cause you don't post much. What do you do when you're not posting :)
This is my main blog, yes. I also post on cinyma but haven’t been doing so for some months now. (I’m sorry)
I keep telling myself that I should post more often but life gets in the way. However, even when I have absolutely nothing to do I usually am too lazy to make gifs and end up browsing my dash/lurking instead. I don’t write like I used to so it’s just gifs now. And if I’m too lazy to make them, then it’s nothing. (I’m sorry again) I’m can’t promise you guys that I will start posting more often because I don’t know if I will but hey when I do post, my gifs end up getting A LOT OF notes so I guess tumblr likes me which is very cool because I’m not even that good at gif making (compared to some other people here on tumblr I mean) so this is where I tell you guys that I love you and that I appreciate each and every single one of my followers, blah blah blah.
Well, when I’m not posting I’m busy with school/exams, having a boyfriend, watching Game of Thrones, going out with friends or just being plain lazy, obviously. Not necessarily in that order, though.
have you watched true romance? i think you'd really love that film!
How did you know? I watched it yesterday and I loved every minute of it I WANT A RELATIONSHIP JUST LIKE THE ONE IN THE FILM—not the guns and drugs and death and violence—just that total commitment and all-consuming passion and loyalty.
I think that amidst the violence and brutality of the film, there is so much tenderness and love. It’s really a beautiful romance film, which surprised me because you expect it to be bloody and action-packed, and it is, but it has an unbelievably sweet love story at the center of it. I love the first lines spoken by Alabama, especially the “That’s the way romance goes, but every once in a while, it goes the other way too…”
Oh and Alabama’s wardrobe is the perfect blend of pastels and trashy Americana; bubble gum sweet and steamingly sexy all in one. I love the scene where Alabama changes into a cow print high-waisted mini, with almost-matching turquoise bra, belt and cowboy boots, and a polka-dot peasant blouse that stays on for all of about 30 seconds before they are overcome with lust in a phone booth, revealing that her knickers match too. PERFECT.
Just perfect, really. Thank you for the suggestion, sweet Anon <3
I adore you and if it makes you feel any better, I can't even go out on my own, so you're very inspiring, a lot more than you think. I only wish you had time to post more as your gifs brighten my day. ♡
You’re the sweetest. You’re one of the few people on tumblr that actually take the time to send me messages and when you do, it really does brighten my day.
I'm sorry I don't talk to you, I just... don't know what to say. I'm really awkward and kinda creepy and your writing is so amazing.
I’m awkward, too. Painfully so.
I’m so awkward I even have difficulty going to a shop and buying stuff I need because I feel awkward when people look at me and I feel awkward when I take too long choosing—which by the way happens a lot because I’m very picky—and once it happens it makes me really self-conscious and I feel it will bring everyone’s attention on me and I feel awkward making eye contact with the cashier and I just—I’m very awkward, you know? I’m dating a guy and I’m awkward around him, too. I like him a lot—in fact, I probably like him more than he likes me but I can’t even look into his eyes for more than five seconds because I feel awkward. And I feel awkward when he wants to hold my hand or when he puts his arm around my waist. Nice guy, you know? But I’m awkward as hell and he either thinks I’m an idiot or that I can’t stand him. I like spending time with him and such but most of the time when we’re together I’m either giggling like a little child or avoiding eye contact and god bless his soul why the fuck is he still wasting his time with me?!
I’m sorry, I didn’t really mean to ramble on—all I’m saying is I’m probably more awkward or creepy or fucked up than you are and most of the time I don’t know what to say either but I appreciate people talking to me more than you can ever imagine. You guys have no idea how happy it makes me when you send me nice messages or messages that let me know that you care or messages that basically prove that you know I exist. It just makes me so fucking happy. Seriously.
Humbert, like you said is a man and Lolita still not being of age (although overtly sexual) isn't it his job to leave the whole situation alone no matter how much he's taunted. I feel like it's excused bc it is a book/film, but in the real world he's considered a pedophile no matter which way you spin it in favor of the actual story. It's almost sick to think people find Lolita acceptable when there are children and teenage girls suffering under the hands of men like Humbert who are 'sick'.
Humbert is not ‘sick’, he is sick. He is considered a pedophile in the book/film just like he would be considered a pedophile in the real world. (What an earth-shattering revelation!) Does that justify his actions? Of course not. The word “pedophilia” refers to the desire, the attraction itself. It does not refer to the act of rape or molestation. The act is called “sexual abuse” or more specifically “child sexual abuse”. Child sexual abuse is a crime. Pedophilia is the disease that happens to motivate a person to commit that crime. Yes, pedophilia is a disease. (There are people who are not pedophiles that also commit child sexual abuse but that’s besides the point.) Humbert does abuse Lolita sexually. He does commit a crime. But that’s not even the fucking point. The author’s intention was NOT to glorify the act, but write something that would stand out beautiful. It is not hard to see how much work Nabokov did on each paragraph, each sentence. When I was reading the novel it was not the story or even characters that affected my emotions but sheer beauty of each sentence. Nabokov does not see literature as a means for morality, but some sort of art, independent from moral and social restrains. This is why he has provocatively chosen a pedophile as his main character. Lolita isn’t a great book because of pedophilic content, it is a great book because of how deep it delves into HH’s psyche and how Nabokov can engross the readers in that dark place and make them forget just quite how dark and wrong it truly is. We don’t love Lolita because we find HH’s actions “acceptable” or “justifiable” or because we think it is “a love story” or because we are fucking sickos who approve of adults having sexual relationships with children. We love Lolita because it is a brilliant piece if literature. What about this is so hard to understand?
Britney Jean is a grower. When you consider that most of Britney’s songs are insanely catchy pop masterpieces that are hard to ignore, an album filled with songs that aren’t quite as instantly catchy, you can appreciate how much of a risk she took here. The album is, also, in my opinion, very personal not necessarily because of the lyrics but because of how each song is sung. There’s something about it that leaves you feeling at peace, calm, hopeful and appreciative. There’s a beautiful sense of sadness too, but a hopeful, reflective one. It leaves you feeling what I imagine Britney is feeling. There’s moments of sweetness, vulnerability, yearning, wistfulness, joy and excitement. The songs are what you take from them; I think they are brilliant because they are unmistakably, unapologetically and undeniably Britney. Every song was co-written by Britney herself, she invested a lot of effort and emotion into every track and even hand-selected which tracks she wanted on the album. It is not her best album, but it is one of her best. It’s sad to see so many reviewers (some who claim to be Britney fans) dismiss this album just because they didn’t receive what THEY wanted.
"Perfume" is a breath of fresh air. While Britney may never release a ballad quite as devastating and raw as "Everytime" again, this is certainly one of the best, most mature ballads she’s done since. I like the music video too, it has a definite feeling of melancholy to it and she looked very pretty.
It was well worth the long wait. It’s just as crazy and beautiful as anything Lana attaches her name to. I love how it explores ideas of innocence and purity against a backdrop of overbearing iconography, pop culture worship and sexual deviation. It’s a little OTT but in the most effusive and brilliant way. It is honestly one of the most beautiful filmed things I have ever seen. I had high expectations for it, and it totally surpassed them. A masterpiece, a perfect ending to such an incredible era. Words can’t express how much I adore Lana Del Rey and basically everything she does. She is easily one of the most intriguing women in music these days. She has taken the time to artistically craft such an eager lane for herself. Oh and, I’m ready for ‘ULTRAVIOLENCE’! ♡
P.S.: I tried to make GIFs of the scenes that had the Marilyn Monroe look-alike in them but they were basically impossible to color :(
