EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

but why

Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.



The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

And people wonder why I despise religion

If Photoshop crashes have taught me anything, it’s to always save and back up!If they were really smart, they would have made two copies and sent the other to a secret library. Preferably guarded by a giant owl creature in the Spirit World.

LORD THING by DeWitt Beall 

"Produced at the height of the black power movement in the early ‘70s, this film is an insider history into the genesis and transformation of the Conservative Vice Lords gang.  

Partially shaped and told by by CVL members who also appear in the film, LORD THING is a unique and powerful tool that expresses an effort in self-transformation during a volatile and violent time in US race history.  

Gritty and rhythmic, this unusual film reflects an under-told chapter in gang history as members from the West Side neighborhood of North Lawndale try to become viable and political agents in their community.”

I guess Orientalism is coming back.

“Chinese Whispers” will primarily examine how eastward-looking Westerners have understood, misunderstood, and appropriated Chinese culture in an exchange that Bolton likens to a complicated game of telephone (which the British call “Chinese whispers”)
This is a v. bad idea.

Apparently it will have a display from from CD John Galliano’s spring 2003 Christian Dior couture show as the focus of this exhibit is Chinese opera.
You know this piece of fucking work.Highlights include:




… white people, man.

Katy Perry is going to come in full yellow face. I can feel it. I CAN FEEL IT.

They’re just being racist on purpose at this point.
You telling me you couldn’t find any Chinese fashion designers to feature in this hodgepodge smorgasbord of racism and cultural appropriation?
So many great Chinese designers with lines echoing periods of fashion in Chinese history.
So many Chinese actors and models that probably have more of a bead on this than the whiteout cast they’ve picked.
Why do white people do this shit. 

wait so they’re like “hey let’s look at orientalism, that seems cool” without like fucking POINTING OUT WHAT’S FUCKED UP ABOUT ORIENTALISM?

….
that shit is ugly as hell in addition to being racist. white people’s  taste level man. 

Orientalism never went away. Weeaboos in the early 2000s and now, Lady Gaga, Bjork in the 90s, that awful episode of Sherlock, Memoirs of a Geisha, etc etc

“I have been mortal, and some part of me is mortal yet. I am full of tears and hunger and the fear of death, though I cannot weep, and I want nothing, and I cannot die. I am not like the others now, for no unicorn was ever born who could regret…”
— Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn (1968)

Fun Fact: Pigs actually have very few sweat glands, so the expression “sweating like a pig” is scientifically inaccurate.
