Originally I was just going to browse homoerotic Homestuck watercolors, but then I decided to talk about feminism.
New followers, send me a message to say hi and tell me something about yourself! You don't need to, but it helps me know you're not a spambot :^)
If you want me to tag anything, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ask. Literally anything. I don't know what your triggers are.
Okay so Pacific Rim ran out pretty quickly but considering that I’m extremely anxious about the future re: school and ALSO writing a paper about black performance and how it changes significantly based on audience and how white people end up ruining everything when black media is distributed en masse, I decided to listen to Kanye West’s The College Dropout for the first time
It good so far and I don’t feel qualified to say any more than that
fread2281 answered your question “Oh and in other news, my computer is making constant hard drive sounds…”
If Disk Management doesn’t work (:o), try a mac (or get a linux livecd)
Ah! Good call; I’ll see if I can wipe it at school tomorrow in the Mac lab. Are there any files I need to keep on it (e.g. drivers)?

you can do this. You aren’t in the Jaeger you ARE the Jaeger. Tons of pure pick up a tanker and use it as a sword butt kicking.
Oh and in other news, my computer is making constant hard drive sounds so I want to back up everything before it explodes; anyone have recommendations for cheap half-terabyte external hard drives that one can plug in and go with?
OR ALTERNATELY, anyone know how to wipe a WD My Passport Essential SE 1TB external from 2009 so that it doesn’t automatically download a bunch of shit and try to back up your computer in the most obnoxious way possible?
Aaaaand there’s the kick I needed to get started; gonna cut my losses because looking at the thing Jesse wanted me to cook made me want to cry so I’m making tuna salad instead
I have OPENED THE NOTEPAD DOCUMENT with my planning notes and started up the Pacific Rim soundtrack; time to write six pages based on bell hooks’s article(? context is not given in the source pdf and we don’t need a bibliography for things we read in class) “Performance Practice as a Site of Opposition”
Not REALLY I’m DEPRESSED but the robot fight music comforts me
HA Ha time to procrastinate on literally everything in my life, luv this brain, haha ha … ha
orevet replied to your post “TIL that the Ka’ba, which is the center of worship in Mecca, literally…”
have you read about the meteorite fragment embedded in the Ka’aba that ISIS wants to destroy
Not until after you told me about it just now*!
*(re: ISIS, not the Black Stone)
The Black Stone has been a part of T H E C U B E for over 14 centuries (so prior to the founding of Islam) and has been previously desecrated multiple times. Its veneration, and the septuple circumperambulation of al-Ka’ba, has been a central part of the hajj since way before Mohammed himself tore the structure down and rebuilt it as a shrine to T H E G O D, so while there is a theological argument to be made for “people worship stones instead of God” it seems unlikely that anyone well-versed in Islam would have a problem with al-Ka’ba or the Black Stone because of the weight of tradition going back to the source of the religion.
The statement you’re referring to seems to have been an Azerbaijani news report about a tweet of unverifiable origin, with no confirmation from Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi or other sources, which means the best American analogy I have for this would be “freshman US Representative Ted Yoho (R-Florida 3) declared Thursday that Congress would be removing the Declaration of Independence from display in the National Archives because it distracts people from the Constitution”; like, you never know what hijinks Republicans are going to get up to but most of them care about the Declaration of Independence so???
Anyway, thanks for keeping me abreast of news!
