Christina Hendricks in her 90s teen goth days

I know there’s plenty of people who want to smooch Joan Holloway, but I just wanna grab a coffee with Christina Hendricks and listen to some Sisters of Mercy.

i literally just yelled “i know you’re doing something but this is important” to get my housemate over to the computer so we could sit in front of this together and go “oh SHIT. what a look WHAT A LOOK STRONG YES STRONG LOOK YES”

I wanna take her to see Bauhaus and smoke cloves omg

Oh JESUS CHRIST Christina Hendricks, are you kidding me with this? Could you BE more perfect? Sigh.

The “La Traviata” sequence from “Priscilla Queen of the Desert”.

One of my co-workers hadn’t even heard of this film. Oh my!

If you haven’t seen it, it stars Elrond/Agent Smith, General Zod, and…well, Guy Pierce (so cute!) as 2 drag queens and a post-op transsexual driving across the Australian outback to do shows at resorts.

It’s sad, and bittersweet, and funny, and cruel. An absolute classic. It’s old enough that I remember there was concern over people walking into theaters to watch it - in case they were identified as “queer” and would invite physical violence. 

The world has changed now. A lot. Not all the way - but in my adult lifetime it’s so much different than when I was a child.

This is now one of my father’s favorite movies. He’s convinced it’s one of Hugo Weaving’s best movies. You’ll never see Elrond the same way ever again.

Columbia University Student Will Drag Her Mattress Around Campus Until Her Rapist Is Gone

"I think the act of carrying something that is normally found in our bedroom out into the light is supposed to mirror the way I’ve talked to the media and talked to different news channels, etc," Emma continues in the full video which you can watch here. 

So, I just want to go into HOW MUCH Columbia and the NYPD has failed, and revictimized, Emma Sulkowicz.

TRIGGER WARNING RAPE AND ASSAULT

In her school hearing, Sulkowicz had to explain to the three administrators on the panel how anal rape worked. She told them she had been hit across the face, choked and pinned down, but, she said, one still seemed confused about how it was possible for someone to penetrate her there without lubricant. Sulkowicz said she had to draw them a diagram.”

Her best friend was meant to be at the hearing; Sulkowicz had chosen her as her one “supporter.” But her friend was kicked out of that role for talking about the case, according to Sulkowicz, in violation of the university’s confidentiality policy. As punishment, her friend was also put on probation and made to write two reflection papers: one from the perspective of Sulkowicz and another from the accused.”

FROM THE PERSPECTIVE
OF HER FRIEND’S RAPIST????????????

- Two other women at Columbia have accused this guy of sexual assault/rape. But he’s been found not responsible in all instances, and is still on campus.

- When she went to the police, one officer said: “You invited him into your room. That’s not the legal definition of rape.”

- Another officer told her friends, who came with her: ““For every single rape I’ve had, I’ve had 20 that are total bullsh*t,” he added “It’s also my type of job to get to the truth. If that means being harsh about it, that’s what I do.”

And that’s.Why. People. Don’t. REPORT.!!!!!!!!!!

Yep. It certainly is why.

Five almost identically dressed, pale young women walked past him. They wore long dresses made of velvet, each dress as dark as night, one each of dark green, dark chocolate, royal blue, dark blood, and pure black. Each woman had black hair and wore silver jewelry; each was perfectly coifed, perfectly made up. They moved silently: Richard was only aware of a swish of heavy velvet as they went past, a swish that sounded almost like a sigh.

The Velvets..indeed. The Velvets.
