GENERATION: ALISON WATT. 

16th of July, 2014. Perth, Scotland. 

I’m something of an Alison Watt fangirl. Not only does the visual look of her work get me in all of my spots (tactile, feminist, introspective), but I truly believe she’s one of the most interesting artists working in Scotland today. Her impressive CV shows that I’m not alone in thinking this: she was commissioned to paint the Queen Mother while still a student at Glasgow and she was the youngest artists to be made Artist in Residence at the National Gallery in London. She’s managed to engage with the neo-conceptualist Scotia Nostra type artists without abandoning painting and while continually engaging with the (currently unfashionable) history of art. She manages to pull together Douglas Gordon and Ingres in the same canvas: not an easy task.

I had some Thoughts about art again, over on my new baby blog, if anyone is interested in arty things. 

Since we’re both single and roughly the same age, it was hard for me not to treat our interview as a sort of date. Surprisingly, Chris did the same, asking all about me, my family, my job, my most recent relationship. And from ten minutes into that first interview, when he reached across the table to punctuate a joke by putting his hand on top of mine, Chris kept up frequent hand holding and lower-back touching, palm kissing and knee squeezing. He’s an attractive movie star, no complaints. I also didn’t know how much I was supposed to respond; when I did, it sometimes felt a little like hitting on the bartender or misconstruing the bartender’s professional fliirting for something more. I wanted to think it was genuine, or that part of it was, because I liked him right away.

Is this the part of a celebrity profile where I go into how blue the star’s eyes are? Because they are very blue.

(It was around then that we were spotted by the gossip reporter that I didn’t know was a gossip reporter, or else I wouldn’t have explained to him on the way back from the bathroom that Chris was “soo flirty” and that I had “the biggest crush on him.” Haha. Oops!)

This interview is blowing up today, I am definitely not mad at that. (via onthechanggang)

“Basically, I realized I was living in that awful stage of life between twenty-six to and thirty-seven known as stupidity. It’s when you don’t know anything, not even as much as you did when you were younger, and you don’t even have a philosophy about all the things you don’t know, the way you did when you were twenty or would again when you were thirty-eight.”

quite possibly the most aggressive reaction to marius’s declaration of love. even “to be free” couldn’t have delivered a harsher blow.

Enjolras, you need to calm down. Even Marius’ great great grandchildren have third degree burns.

Natalie as Cressida in the new ‘Mockingjay: Part 1’ trailer [x]

Yesssss

I will remember the kisses
our lips raw with love
and how you gave me
everything you had
and how I
offered you what was left of
me,
and I will remember your small room
the feel of you
the light in the window
your records
your books
our morning coffee
our noons our nights
our bodies spilled together
sleeping
the tiny flowing currents
immediate and forever
your leg my leg
your arm my arm
your smile and the warmth
of you
who made me laugh
again.

Ayn Rand’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

mallelis:

“Harry,” Hermione called out breathlessly, scurrying to catch up with him, only no one could ever catch up with him, for he walked alone, “I got you a Christmas present. Happy — Happy Christmas, Harry.”

It was a sweater she had knitted herself with the answer to every exam they’d be taking for the rest of the year magically and invisibly sewn into the fabric. Harry tossed it in his book bag.

“I got you a present too,” Harry said. Hermione’s smile widened.

“Really?”

“My present is the truth,” he said. “You don’t look very good in green. I don’t know why you’re always wearing it.”

Objectivist Harry Potter only gives the truth for Christmas

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

Aquarius: This can be a good week for getting unstuck from the things that have been weighing you down. You don’t have to run away and you don’t have to leave your whole life behind, but you can take small slow steps out of dark rooms and sad places, this week. You can find new sources of energy, you can find new sources of joy, you can find so many ways to sustain yourself. Believe in your own motion. Believe in your own bravery. Open your windows, or cut your sleeves off your shirt, or go swimming all day.

Today’s image was made specially for Madame Clairevoyant by Jen May.
