Part of what makes heteronormcore so boring is its inability to dream bodies outside its own dictionary. Part of what makes capturing the essence of modern dick sucking so difficult is that once we make a serious attempt to hold all kinds of actors and genders (including ones that don’t “look” like either men or women at all), and all kinds of queer encounters, we are left with lots of substance and story and little common meaning. Perhaps that’s the point. That sucking dick is an idea, and a dick is an idea, and the mouth is an idea (an open one), and sucking is an idea, and then putting a mouth to a dick and sucking is several permutations of ideas waiting to explode one another. Dick sucking anticipates variations on itself. Like people, sex acts can have one name across certain spans of time and yet dress and behave in completely different ways. Phrases like “queer” and “War on Terror” don’t mean a material thing anymore on their own. Neither, I would posit, does sucking dick. Maybe, at some point in the vast and fluid history of sex, dick sucking was an act; right now it’s more of a performance.

How Many Licks – The New Inquiry (via failedprojects)

machine-factory:

There’s no denying, Seinabo Sey really found her sweet spot on ‘Pistols At Dawn' when it dropped last month. But this music video, directed by Christian Larson, takes things to another level. Throughout the visual, Seinabo is seen draped in a scarlet dress/gown in the middle of a barren forest. Take a look at the video above; and if Seinabo's dark and moody atmospherics won't get you, this sure will!

“During a party, Luis Buñuel, seduced by Carrington’s beauty and emboldened by the notion that she had transcended all bourgeois morality, proposed (with his characteristic bluntness) that she become his mistress. Without even waiting for her answer, he gave her the key to the secret studio that he used as a love nest and told her to meet him at three o’clock the next afternoon. Early the next morning, Leonora went to visit the place alone. She found it tasteless: It looked exactly like a motel room. Taking advantage of the fact that she was in her menstrual period, she covered her hands with blood and used them to make bloody handprints all over the walls in order to provide a bit of decoration for that anonymous, impersonal room. Buñuel never spoke to her again.”
— Alejandro Jodorowsky tells the story of the day Luis Buñuel was out-Buñueled by Leonora Carrington.  From “The Spiritual Journey of Alejandro Jodorowsky: The Creator of El Topo”
what i am interested in, wrt the comic above, is if he still loved her after this scene or not. and if not, then weren’t her questions justified?
i mean - there are many things in this scenario which are not, how you say, the kind of things that sneak up on a man. there isn’t even a cover on the glass. 'i think i have fallen in love with you' - that is the present perfect. implies having started to fall in love in the past and continuing up to the present moment. and he had no idea his objet d’amour was a shit-drinking harpy? im not judging either way. either he was in love with her honestly, and loves too these facets of her, or he was totally surprised by all of this, in which case: what was the thing he loved?
"but soren its just a comic strip see it’s funny because…"
PLUS he is wearing a toque to a romantic candlelight dinner. i mean this guy.

A strange lonely planet found without a star
An international team of astronomers has discovered an exotic young planet that is not orbiting a star. This free-floating planet, dubbed PSO J318.5-22, is just 80 light-years away from Earth and has a mass only six times that of Jupiter. The planet formed a mere 12 million years ago, a newborn in planet lifetimes.
"We have never before seen an object free-floating in space that looks like this. It has all the characteristics of young planets found around other stars, but it is drifting out there all alone," explained team leader Dr. Michael Liu of the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. “I had often wondered if such solitary objects exist, and now we know they do.”The discovery paper of PSO J318.5-22 is being published by Astrophysical Journal Letters and is available at http://arxiv.org/abs/1310.0457.

This man’s face

You can tell she has a Tumblr.

his face is my hero

there was a doctor at the end of this video who I wish with all my heart had more time to speak because he was about to lay down some serious stuff and was not having any of those idiots bullshit.


From the same video.

I believe there are certain genetic conditions that make it harder for people to lose weight or close to impossible (correct me if im wrong). Not to mention conditions like arthritis make it impossible to exercise. Yet I think the response below misses the original point. Its no one fucking business what someones weight is or whether they are healthy. Concern about at fat peoples health is almost always  body policing than genuine concern about health.

Except the question *wasn’t* "are there people who can’t lose weight." The question was, as you can clearly see in the screen caps, ”are there people who are just going to be big no matter what,” and the answer to that question is yes- or, to put it in terms Mr. Energy In Energy Out can understand: categorically, definitively YES. You can lose weight and still be “big,” or perceived as “big,” and that’s precisely the negative loop that people who spout this ”energy in, energy out” bullshit want you to fall into. Many people, regardless of how much they exercise, will never be small enough to be perceived as “healthy” by this man and people like him who measure health by body type.
I was tremendously unhealthy when I was at my lowest adult weight, and this is a story most non-slender people know painfully well. I was miserable and suicidal and essentially starving myself, as WELL as doing metric buttloads of cocaine. It was a tremendously unhealthy and disempowered time for me (physically, emotionally and mentally) and even though I was so so so so so small, label size-wise, I still was not “thin" enough for people to see me and perceive me as such. I’m an endomorph with a highly exaggerated hourglass shape; at the time I was a label size 4 and still had large breasts, fleshy arms and big hips (because I always will). I was the closest thing to "skinny" I’d ever been, moreso than many of the slender people you know, and others still looked at me and perceived/judged me as overweight. I still got the "don’t you want to be healthier?" bullshit from my toxic partner at the time, who placed a lot of value on the way my body was perceived by others. I had shrunk myself down to unimaginable, dangerous proportions for my body type, but it still wasn’t "enough."  That smarmy douchebag up there would have looked at me and, with a shit-eating, patronizing grin on his face, told me I could still be working harder to be "healthier." 
 
The irony being, of course, that I wasn’t healthy. I was the farthest thing from it. "Energy In, Energy Out" is a fallacy BECAUSE the people who espouse it use thinness as a health marker instead of actual health. The skinnier I got, the less healthy I was. It isn’t and never was about being “healthy” since (as the woman above eloquently and politely explained) no one ever asks a slender person if they’re healthy. It’s assumed that they are, by virtue of their body type, regardless of what illnesses/disorders they may struggle with, or what “unhealthy” habits they may engage in. It’s only through starvation, drug use and intense deprivation that I can achieve anything even remotely resembling “health” as this man defines it, meaning thinness, which (for me) is the opposite of health. 
I was meant to be big, juicy, imposing and abundant- to take up space. I was born with the power to innately embody those traits in my physical being and so will continue to. I’m solid in myself, solid in my power and am well loved and sexually desired by many- not in SPITE of my bigness, but because of my deep and sincere love for it. The bigness of my body reflects the bigness of my being. My power (physically, emotionally, sexually) is in my bigness. People who are intimidated or made uncomfortable by that are boring, impotent, status quo chattel completely unworthy of my time or thought.

Had the people in the 1950s had been asked, “Do you want your taxes to go to development of the kind of technology that will allow your grandchildren to have iPads or do you want your taxes to go into a livable society? Health care, education, places where people can have decent lives? And so on. What would people have decided? Well, whatever the answer was, they didn’t have an answer because they never had a choice. They were told, “You have to pay taxes for the Pentagon because the Russians are coming and the Chinese are coming.” And it turns out that they were paying their taxes so that their grandchildren could have an iPod and Steve Jobs could get rich. Well, that’s the way the whole society works, but you don’t read about that.
