I’ll just leave this here.
Finally, a makeup advertisement addressing the fact that makeup is an ARTFORM, and isn’t only used to “hide your flaws”.
Oh my god Maybelline! Well fucking done! *raucous applause and whooping*
well…i certainly agree with the message. makeup is a legitimate form of individual expression. but i’m not about to get all bright eyed and bushy tailed for maybelline.
even if it were a real ad (edit: it’s not!), companies only market in a way that is necessary for profit. the beauty industry is increasingly exploiting the growing attempts to critique patriarchal expectations of female beauty. these critiques threaten the success of these companies which, more often than not, thrive on body shame and sexism. companies like maybelline only care about empowerment as long as is brings in the cashola. the green. the money, honey.
I am such a bad writer it’s embarrassing
why can’t I have Conor Oberst or Jane Austen or George Orwell or John Green or Thomas Hardy poeticalness, like really
If I read something that I wrote as the reader I would shred and burn it
I’m in the middle of reading The Fault in Our Stars. Why is it so good? T.T
Edward and Edwina Spoonhands
Have a pretty hard time of it.
They can hardly eat cereal
And they can only type about three words a minute
But they both agree
It’s not as bad as it could be
So they clack their big ol’ fingers
And they sing a little song for you and me.
Accio Deathly Hallows by Hank Green
I’m gettin kinda tired of this
prepublication media blitz
they’ve got all of muggle kind under their spell
don’t they know the whole world’s already gone
and reserved a copy from amazon
how many more books could you sell?
Just give me that book or go to hell.
Cause I need … Harry Potter
Like a grindylow needs water
as Saturday approaches my need grows
Accio Deathly Hallows
Incendio Book Sales Embargoes
It’ll feel like phoenix tears on a broken nose
Accio deathly hallows
Accio deathly hallows
I’m getting kinda petrified
What would Ron do if Hermione died
Or if Voldemort killed Hedwig just for yucks
I have no confidence
in theories about the half blood prince
And what if Harry’s brain is a horcrux
Holy crap that would frikkin suck.
Whatever’s up the sleve of JK Rowling
I bet it has to do with snape unbreakably vowing
to protect that pureblood pus face Malfoy
But in the end I don’t think it’s gonna matter
if Snape’s good, or if he’s bad
because the weight of the world rests on our boy.
Yeah the weight of the world rests on our boy
But mostly I’m just feelin’ sad
I know this could end real bad but
I wish it didn’t have to end at all
Yeah I wish it didn’t have to end at all
Cause I couldn’t care more about Harry Potter
If Hogwarts was my Alma Mater….
It’s fantastically easy to play…Chord Progression:
