Outfit Post: Leather Jacket And Persuasion Scarf


I am half agony, half hope







jeans & cardigan: Pimkie (via my sister) | t-shirt: C&A | leather jacket: Pimkie | boots: Forever21 | scarf: neenacreates | earrings: Crafted Locally

Phew. Haven’t done an outfit post in a while, mainly because I don’t go out much and if I don’t go out, I go for comfortable and boring over photographable. But on Tuesday I was out of clean comfortable clothes,…

Stereotypes and cliches about mental illness are as pervasive as those about race. I have noticed that the mental illness that affects white men is often characterized, if not glamorized, as a sign of genius, a burden of cerebral superiority, artistic eccentricity - as if their depression is somehow heroic. White women who suffer from mental illness are depicted as idle, spoiled, or just plain hysterical. Black men are demonized and pathologized. Black women with psychological problems are certainly not seen as geniuses; we are generally not labeled “hysterical” or “eccentric” or even “pathological.” When a black woman suffers from a mental disorder, the overwhelming opinion is that she is weak. And weakness in black women is intolerable.

How to Make A Media Kit: Content

So, media kits. Media kits are a convenient, handy file used to showcase the sponsorship options, site stats and services you can offer businesses and bloggers if they choose to collaborate with you. You generally send these out to companies you want to work with, potential sponsors, PR people, fellow bloggers and generally anyone who wants to give you money. Or things. Or just a cool…

thoughts running through my mind on this sweet rainy monday

Holy balls, I’m heading to London in a week. Holy fucking shit.

(It’s probably a good thing I have a post scheduled for later this week where I talk about cursing.)

I’m mildly terrified, but when I try to put my finger on what terrifies me exactly, things feel significantly less…

A tour of the British Isles in accents: for those who would be tempted to mention “A British accent” and leave it at that.

…Smart to remember, too, that all these regions will have microregional variants. The Dublin accent referenced here, for example, is only one of at least five or six that I can identify, and I bet there are a lot more I’ve never heard or can’t tell from one another. Ditto for other regions in Ireland. The “Irish accent” as normally heard in US TV and film until quite recently has never been much more than an overstated, artficial “Dublin Stage” accent.

Equally, what most people in the US think of as “the British accent” beloved of movie villains everywhere is usually the so-called Received Pronunciation or RP, a kind of by-blow of the BBC’s refusal for a long time to allow its announcers to use anything but an approved version of the Home Counties “posh” accent. (This dialectic “glass wall” has finally started cracking in the last decade.)

Work & Campaign Update, Or, Me Me Me

I made a Google+ page for Lix Hewett Creative, i.e. my, er, business. My business! No ‘er’! (It’s hard sometimes.) Creating the cover image was the only thing I managed to focus on for longer than two minutes yesterday, so you should encourage me by liking it. +1-ing it, whatever.

So you know how you should help me go to London (and stay)? The lovely Sally…

"guess we cant have different opinions on tumblr"

nah son. an opinion is like “orange juice is nasty” or “fall out boy is overrated”

"your gender identity is ridiculous and you dont deserve to have it respected" is straight up bullshit and you should be called out on it
