I’m reading up on the Memoirs of a Geisha controversy, since I’d neither seen the movie nor read the book, and the more I read about it, the more pissed off I get. Basically it went down like this:
Japanese woman tells white American man about her past life as a geisha. White American man then writes a novel that sells itself as an accurate memoir of Japanese woman’s life, but instead falsifies a number of her life events, misrepresents her trade, and exoticises her culture. He also names her as a source even though she specifically asked him to keep her anonymous. Japanese woman gets death threats. White American man becomes bestselling author.
Then Japanese woman gets fed up and writes her own memoir to set the record straight. Meanwhile, white American man’s book gets adapted into a film that grosses $162 million and wins three Oscars.
Zero Waste is a duo for pianist Kathleen Supove and computer, which challenges the live performer to both create and sight-read a new piece on the spot. The computer displays two measures of software-generated music in common music notation. Once Kathleen begins playing, the software begins to transcribe her performance into the score. The performer in turn, “sight reads” this score.
As the performer continues to sight read and play, the computer continues to listen and notate, creating an interactive synergy where performance errors and expressive deviations lead to new musical worlds. Over time the challenge of sight reading and the limits of music notation evolve the piece into something very different than how it began.
so, as most of you know for the past like two years I have had one anon stalker that sends me rude gross messages…..someone recently told me about this code you can put in your layout to make people think they were sending you anon messages and when they got to your inbox you’d be able to see who sent them…..so this weekend I put it in to see if I could catch the gross fuck that was sending the messages.
AND MY FRIENDS.
WE HAVE A WINNER.
DING DING DING beardedmisanthrope IS THE PATHETIC, SAD SAD SADDDD ANON STALKER.
AMAZING. THANKS FOR PLAYING GUYS.
The saddest part is that this dude isn’t some 14 year old kid. He is 30. He is a FATHER.
Please feel free to reblog this so more people see it and give this gross fucker what he deserves.
Please reblog. He’s deleted it now but this man found Steph’s blog through me
For the past 4 years has been sending me violent threats of rape and abuse, not only about me but about me and my friends. About once a day he has sent me messages encouraging me to kill myself, messaging my boyfriend trying to convince him I’m cheating on him, one threatened to tie me up and watch friends of mine being raped, etc etc etc. Not to mention commonly using racial and homophobic slurs.
For the past 4 years I have not openly spoken about it because I was terrified. But now we know everything. You may be getting a call from the police, if you’re reading this. They’ve already started filing a restraining order years ago. Hope you’re still fit to take care of a child after repeatedly threatening rape and violence on two young girls FOR FOUR FUCKING YEARS YOU SICK FUCK. I hope you feel a fraction of the distress you’ve caused us.
I would post a master post of my screencaps of all my past messages from him but unfortunately I’m out of town.
Be on the lookout.
Additionally if you have any more info about this user or know him personally please signal boost to your Arizona followers I’d like to get as much possible info as possible to stop this potential rapist/shitbag thanks
also it’s annoying that in response to the EPA’s kim k tweet (which has now been deleted), many OLD PEOPLE wrote “oh this is where our tax dollars are going!!!” in that typical old people way. i mean, maybe i’m being too generous here because i’m #teammillennial of course but the tweet was made well into the evening after office hours and some intern was probably just relaxing tryna make the C list and didn’t realize they were still logged onto the EPA twitter. the kim k game also makes it easy to accidentally send tweets!!! i mean, it was a silly careless mistake that could’ve been avoided and that tweet should’ve been gone after 10 minutes, tops, but it’s not like they were caught buying kim stars using the work account!!! it’s more likely than not that no tax dollars were actually wasted here (was that intern even getting paid to begin with?)
I wouldn’t really trust that tomato website for scientific tomato info.
But when you look for tomato free recipes and find a website called ‘tomatoes are evil dot com’ you have to share.
Do you know why this word exists?
Drapetomania is the fictitious disease that the Southern slave doctor Samuel A. Cartwright created to categorize the tendency for slaves to run away as a mental illness to be cured. Because white people wholeheartedly believed that enslaving us was a service to us ( saving us from our brutish, lascivious, and lazy ways) and any right minded individual could see that..The prescribed
punishmenttreatment for drapetomania was torture and hard labor.
Do not put this on your artsy blogs.
Do not erase the deplorable history behind it.
This is a truly heinous word. Whoever originally posted this was an ignorant fuck. And this definition is a crock of shit.
An overwhelming urge to run away.
Go fuck yourself.
