So, I will just basically post whatever I want it's usually comic or show related, tattoos music... I don't know sometimes there's some things that can be considered nsfw hit me up if you're bored or have questions. I'm probably bored too.
Street artist DS recently added a couple of paste-ups to a wall in London. It didn’t take too long before a graffiti removal guy removed the paste-ups. Shortly after that, DS was back with a paste up of the graffiti removal guy removing the graffiti. Gold! Art imitates removal of art! We’ve seen this before. […]
Reblogging because I want all of my followers to be aware of just how much you can do in Photoshop, and how little of what you see on posters, in magazines and of pictures on the internet etc. are necessarily real.
Imagine how the model feels, too. She was hired to be the most beautiful, but they still had to change her because her beauty wasn’t enough.
Not only is the general body distortion completely gross, but notice that they lighten her skin color. This is a white, blonde model, and they make her whiter. Actual white people aren’t even the ideal whiteness, so can you even imagine what models with dark skin have to endure in this industry?
so for all you girls that ask “Why can’t I look like the girls in magazines” it’s because the girls in magazines don’t even look like the girls in magazines.
In 2008, it was all about vampires. In 2011, it was dystopian societies with corrupt governments. And now, 2014 seems to be the year of teenagers with fatal diseases.
As far as Hollywood obsessions go, the first two are pretty benign. In real life, there are no supernatural creatures roaming the streets at night thirsting for human blood, no game shows forcing adolescents to fight to the death. Romanticizing those subjects isn’t that worrisome. A vampire is never going to write “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer to tell her: “I’m not being portrayed properly, and now everyone thinks I sparkle.”
But teenagers with illnesses do exist. I am one of them, and it hurts to see movies and television glamorize our suffering.
Everything about this article is so accurate and important!
I wanted Red Band Society to be good I really did, but after watching it I realized it was another romanticized version of illness. They never even once show a patient hooked up to an IV, something that is unavoidable in a hospital. They show the hospital as a fun and happy place, something it just isn’t. The whole show just made me angry.
^^ yess. In real hospitals, even if you’re really ill, most of the time they send you home if you don’t need to be hooked up to IVs or whatnot because if you don’t need that constant supply of drugs in a way you can’t get them at home, they’re not going to keep you there. Red Band Society seems to think there are like, 5 star hospitals like 5 star hotels. You can check in if you’re sick and get this nice place to stay and people to meet and cool amenities. In real hospitals “five star” means your meds come on time and the nurses respond to the call button… not that you get comfy furniture and hang out spots or any sort of privacy or freedom or even time to meet other patients at all in any way.
"According to “Red Band Society’s” Leo, “Your body isn’t you, your soul is you, and they can never cut into your soul.” However, the show’s writers seem to forget that every time you start a new medication or treatment, every time you get a new diagnosis, every time you hear the words “there is no cure,” your soul is cut into. It might heal eventually, but there will always be a scar, a reminder of the pain, the grief."
