Now Playing Tracks

“I remember Audra McDonald, coming back stage and saying “make sure when you warm up…” and I remember her putting her hands around my diaphragm and saying I want you to take a deep breath in and she would teach me how to extend my diaphragm and tell me what scales to do. Peter Friedman taught me about being on time, and being ready for your cue and how to behave on stage. And Marin taught me how to have fun and she taught me how to laugh and to not be so hard on yourself. All those little things were my lessons and I got them without taking singing lessons, acting lessons – those were my teachers and I owe everything to them. That was Ragtime for me.”
-Lea Michele.

sex isn’t the be all end all





babe u buyin this



sam we’ve shared living space


i’m pretty sure you know how we feel about sex

I love that in the episode version of this scene (as opposed to the take they used in the promo) Kurt’s response was “Are you high?”

Scissors brooch! And not that tiny one, this one’s big.


Anonymous asked:

I do think you're absolutely partial towards Klaine. Kurt is cold, uncaring, and Chris Colfer's acting choices aren't helping either. Blaine looks totally unhappy since he's in NY. They failed at living together, they always fail at communicating. I used to ship Klaine but now it doesn't look like a healthy relationship. Shipper goggles are blinding a lot of clever people, imho. Sorry if I seem harsh, but I think a lot of fans are pretending not to notice the obvious.


Klaine goggles? MOI?


Um, yeah. You could say that. I’m way more than a little partial towards them. I’ve done a terrible job of hiding that. Which is to say that I haven’t tried, not even a little.


If you feel something different? Rock on, you do you. We’re all entitled to watch the show in whatever ways we want, and we all bring our own goggles to the table - personal baggage, shipping preferences, whatever.

But I have a LOT of thoughts about Kurt and Blaine as of 5x16, and am tickled to have the excuse to write them down. Will this convince you that I’m “right” and you’re “wrong?” I’m sure not, and that’s really not the point. I’m gonna do me, you do you. Ship (or not) and let ship, man.

Under a cut because BOY did this get long. I HAVE SOME THOUGHTS is what I’m saying.

I absolutely adored this meta; the deep love of the characters and their relationship is so evident here, as is a nuanced understanding of their dynamic right now.  My favorite bit: “Happily-ever-after has always been a myth. You do, in fact, need more than just Love, Love, Love. You need to work at it, too.”

Such a simple truth, but one that fundamentally challenges one of our biggest cultural myths.  I love that we’re getting a warts-and-all fairytale; so much more satisfying (and interesting!) than the alternative.  

The assumption that English is the language of feminist research and scholarship does not do justice to the variety and vitality of autochthonous feminist cultures across many regions of the globe, including Europe. Unless we acknowledge the need to support transnational feminism with a firm commitment to multilingualism, the dominant English-speaking feminist scholarly community erases or confines to the margins a large number of excellent and politically significant non-English-speaking feminists.
