the blinding symmetry

Hello.
25. Feminist. Student. Language Nerd.
I really love my dogs.

You know when you park your car next to an identical car and you get all excited like, “My car! He found his long lost twinsie! After ALL THESE YEARS!!!”??

Modern art was CIA 'weapon'

maroonedoffvesta:

The CIA also backed Iowa and creative writing MFA programs in general.

This article kind of buries and doesn’t go into the reasons why they backed abstract expressionism specifically - they quote a former CIA asshole and probably current asshole saying

It was recognised that Abstract Expression- ism was the kind of art that made Socialist Realism look even more stylised and more rigid and confined than it was. And that relationship was exploited in some of the exhibitions.

but socialist realism was not the only politically left “representational” art going at the time - the article mentions Rockefeller as a big booster of abstract expressionism; it doesn’t mention that he started doing this after he saw the Diego Rivera fresco he commissioned, freaked out, and destroyed it

basically - they saw a.e’ism happening and were like, oh, perfect, no opportunity for overt political statements here, and threw a lot of money at it.

I wear men’s deodorant all the time because it smells awesome and works better, but hot damn I just bought a new one and now I think I’m attracted to my own self.

reblogging these awesome vultures instead of reblogging that garbage Axe ad to comment on it, since I suspect people who advertise on Tumblr don’t really care why you’re reblogging their content or what trenchant commentary you’re adding to it, just as long as they get plenty of reblogs
why do we gotta have the goddamn Axe ads though they’re so wretched
may the vultures feast on the flesh of people writing the Axe copy, may the vultures make jokes about tasting deodorant even through the putrid liquefaction of decomposition

I don’t think I’ve changed at all since I was a child? I look exactly like I would have expected baby-me to look like as a grown up.

Sometimes I question what I’m doing with my life and where I’m headed… and then I reconnect to ceramics and I feel better about things and what I’m doing and what I’m striving for.
