DEAR FRIENDS AND (NEW) FOLLOWERS! Especially the Dutchies amongst you! Please help a sista out:
This wonderful artist ALUMNA has been brought to my attention… And she needs some help recording her first full-length studio album, and I think she def deserves it. She’s innovative and talented, and all about bringing different forms of art together.
She’s trying (and so far, succeeding) to raise funds for her first full-length album through a Dutch crowd-sourcing platform called ‘Voordekunst’ (‘For the arts’). SHE NEEDS € 6000 FOR THIS TO HAPPEN AND SHE STILL HAS 4 DAYS LEFT AND IS € 1410 AWAY FROM HER GOAL!
So, there’s about 300 of you maybe or maybe not reading this, but if 141 of you donated € 10… you do the math!
Think about what you would love to do the most and how awesome it would be if someone donated 10 bucks to help you out.
SO HELP A SISTA OUT TO RECORD SOME GOOD MUSIC!
whoops it almost ended like a joke but then it really wasn’t was it?
A love story with Michelle Harper and Jenny Shimiziu, featuring looks filled with stripes, houndstooth patterns, pinks and greens, demonstrating that personal style is all in the details – the way a blazer is worn, pumps versus flats, jewellery, makeup - these personal touches highlight their individuality, fearlessness and elegance.
This Powerful Video Shows Men What It Feels Like To Be Subjected To Sexism And Sexual Violence
i really like this. it’s got the microagressions down in a lot of ways, also things like body language and posture? i recognized the men doing things and speaking in ways that women are trained to and it was awesome to see. also things like all the men being nurses or old secretaries in the police station and the hospital. there was also a moment of white feminism, which was interesting to see translated. basically, i like this a lot because it’s a pretty faithful mirror.
Het regent, nee het giet
en zo voor even lijkt het niet
alsof we slecht bij elkaar passen.
Ik zie dat jij het net zo ziet
dus pak mijn hand dan gaan we samen
springen in de diepste plassen.
