I love Missy Elliot. I also love lose control. I have day dreams of dancing with voodoo queens and voguing in the air whilst pinned to a wall. so you know, THANKS MISSY. but i’ve found that what I may like more then that is this new video from Spoek Mathambo, which is an all around home run. which is totally a phrase i’ve not used before because I don’t love baseball at all.
When I am old and grey, and have skin like porcelain. (because lets face it there is a 50 50 chance I’m not going to age gracefully and am instead going to blow money away on filler treatments and skin stretching. NOT BECAUSE i’m vain, but more to keep the specter of my own impending mortality at bay.) i hope a bunch of fierce, fabulous dancers paint my life back into existence.
thanks gloria for dis videoooo
I’m a one diva man, and Beyonce your day im sad to say is OVER. Hey Solange. I LOVE YOU.
ok yeah, so its not that great of a screen capture, but i aint no profesh camera man, what I am, is a man in love. I mean HOLY GOD I LOVE EVERY OUTFIT IN THIS VIDEO, from this brick jacket to the KILLER orange power outfit.
I don’t even mind the staple OH ME AND MY FRIENDS SO CRAZY WE JUMP INTO POOLS IN OUR CLOTHES section of this video. i mean really people, that just means your going to be damp all day. and DID YOU REMEMBER TO TAKE YOUR IPHONE out of your pocket or your wallet. probs not. SWIMMING IN CLOTHES IS NOT PRACTICAL. take them off, go nude, thats not even crazy. crazy is jumping in the pool in a knights outfit and pretending your a deep sea diver. or something. the point is, the important point is, i even liked the scene where her friends jumped in the water with her.
but besides for the outfit and the vintage flair, and the fantastic styling, i loved her endearing and vulnerable side. way to work being human.
so yeah SOLANGE I just want you to Knowles the only thing I’m losing tonight is love for your big sister.
I just had a revelatory bath experience that was AWESOME.
But either way it made me fall in love with today.
which is a good thing, as i have been reading this performative theory paper that had me all like WHAT IS UP WITH THAT, about everything all afternoon.
it’s weird but this bath shoe has totally supplanted my early desire to have a bath tub that looks like this:
Plus the moon totally killed it tonight.
So here is the new article i just wrote on spanish artists, before ya’ll start saying why did you pick all white, dead, male, painters and eschew the many other brilliant and dynamic artists that came out of spain, the lists of artists was assigned to me. and the five i wrote on are all unquestionably totally awesome, i just felt i need to make a point about them not being necessarily the five artists i would have chosen to portray spanish art.
either way here is DA LINk:
