please, mr. fascist, enlighten a large group of international (and mostly bi- or tri-cultural) twenty-somethings working for international organizations on the merits of nationalism.
a package arrived from my mother today with homemade snickerdoodles (!!), tubes of sweet-tarts, tortillas (!!!), clippings from the SF Chronicle, vaseline, and heaps of hair/skin product from my beauty store owning aunt (which comes in every package. I have so much beauty product here that I could probably start my own shop). my mom continues to be the cutest most thoughtful prettiest and loveliest woman on the planet.
visiting Kazakh diplomat taking selfies during session. how embarrassing.
such good dance music.
nothing makes me happier in the entire world than having old friends meet new friends and seeing them get along and love each other. NOTHING. this weekend was so lovely.
summer drinks on the terrace in the world’s most pleasant city.
I spend about 60% of awake time in my bedroom watching the sky. never gets old.
“The record is my story,” Morissette says. “I think of the album as running over the different facets of my personality, one of them being my sexual self.
To isolate “You Oughta Know’ is a misrepresentation of the whole story. By no means is this record just a sexual angry record. That song wasn’t written for the sake of revenge, it was written for the sake of release. I’m actually a pretty rational, calm person.”
Jagged Little Pill was released 18 years ago today. Find out what Alanis Morissette had to say about the album in 1995.
18 years ago today! I have such fond memories of driving around with my mom in our white Chevy Blazer (with a subwoofer in the back, of course) singing every single word to every song on this album. even the bad words because my mom loved alanis so much that she didn’t even give a fu. chicken shit revolutionized my vocabulary.
Medieval smiley face
This is a true feel-good doodle, drawn by a medieval reader and found in the lower margin of a 13th-century page. The surprisingly modern-looking smiley face is wearing glasses and seems to float towards the text in a balloon, quite content. This little scene made my day.
Pic: Conches, Bibliothèque municipale, MS 7 (main text 13th century, doodle 14th or 15th century). More medieval doodles in this Tumblr.
You should all follow Erik Kwakkel’s tumblr, all of his amazing medieval posts have lovely annotations, a rare thing on tumblr where too often we see images with little context. Superb!
this is so cool.
eating sushi without chopsticks is the least enjoyable.
