I FOUND MY NEW FAVORITE PICTURE ON THE INTERNET
There is NOTHING about this picture that I don’t like.
Some people I work with say that they delete a post on Tumblr if it doesn’t get any notes.
I commented that that would be my entire blog and they gave me the weirdest look.
Thank you Tumblr, for being there when the outside world seems to keep on pushing you down.
Holding my heart, capturing my soul and taking my breath away at every turn.
I have ideas for memes so I signed up to tickld finally to upload them and you can only upload one per day
I’m officially naming this award season “the year stars stopped giving a fuck”
Far be it for me to dispute Cate Blanchett, or the larger point she’s making, but the guys are all wearing the same thing. If the camera were to do that to the guys, it’d just be black pants over… and over…. and over…
I agree. In this particular case, it’s apples and oranges. Tuxes versus gowns. Photocopies versus unique work. Perhaps their real foul was not running the shot by her before hand.
I would like to point out, though, the salacious nature of the slow pan up a woman’s body. In this particular case, detail isn’t usually put on the hem of a dress (because no one wants to see hand beading or embroidery get dirty or ripped out by an errant stiletto), and a full-body shot would be better to showcase the drape and design of these beautiful gowns like in the fashion plate glossies. Starting at the bottom and slowly panning up dehumanizes women because you don’t see their faces until you’ve seen the rest of their bodies. Their identities don’t matter.
That’s a really good point, thank you.
Today I fell over at work but nobody noticed so it went a lot better than expected.
