realest thing I’ve seen in a while
this was so amazing. so thought provoking. an eye-opening social criticism.
The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…
Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.
“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.” ― John Berger, Ways of Seeing

Kei, why missing you gets under my skin (via abluesforbrklyn)
This was the first song we wrote for the record. The flange on Travis’ drums on the intro of the song was done the old school way, using two tape machines. When it came to writing the lyrics, Tom and I went into different rooms, and he wrote the versus, and I wrote the choruses, without discussing the subject ahead of time. It turns out we both wrote about sex. Two different sides, the passionate, lustful side (versus) and the romantic side (chorus).
