So I love books. Namely Harry Potter, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and Warrior Cats (Warriors). I also love music by Taylor Swift, who is just the sweetest person. Add in some sparkles, chocolate, snow, rain, and Christmas, and that is me in a nutshell. I post stuff to do with all the aforementioned things, as well as anything I find funny or sweet, and a lot of feminist/LGBT posts. ALSO I KNOW THAT THE ROMIONE KISS AT THE QUIDDITCH WORLD CUP WAS THEIR THIRD CANON KISS -- HOWEVER, IT WAS THEIR SECOND AS A COUPLE. Ahem. Sorry. But if one more person tells me it was their third kiss, not their second ... XD
I’m hiding naked in my closet because there are mattress delivery men in my bedroom and no one thought to tell me so I was just doing my naked thing after my shower and then I was very unceremoniously shoved into my closet and I don’t know how long I have to be here I don’t have snacks or anything
update: I found a chocolate bar on my shelf but also my phone battery is at 20% I feel like bear grylls
don’t you have clothes in your closet
So after I mentioned how horribly sexist Blurred Lines is, this guy said to me ‘Blurred Lines is such a good song — I’m not talking about the meaning, just the song’. No. Just no, OK? Ignoring the meaning does not excuse this song and make it acceptable. The way I see it, if a song has an ugly meaning, it automatically becomes bad music.
Look at it like this. Imagine someone can’t understand English. They can’t understand a word of it. They hear someone saying the words ‘Murder. Rape. Child abuse.’ And God, does it sound beautiful, the way they’re saying it. And the person loves these words and repeats them and thinks they’re fantastic. But then one day, they learn what these words mean. And suddenly, they’re not so beautiful anymore. Suddenly, they don’t sound that good. The person stops repeating the words, because their meaning defines and shapes them so that in the end, however someone says them, they are no longer beautiful and they stop being ‘good’ words. For me, it’s the same with music. Blurred Lines is rubbish music, because its meaning is destructive and abhorrent.
