Today we celebrate the legacy of a remarkable author - Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Although he left us too soon, his words remain. So visit your local library today and check out your favorite book - whether it’s 100 Years of Solitude, Love in the Time of Cholera or The Autumn of the Patriarch - and love the words of the exceptional Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

RIP Papi

YOU CAN PURCHASE THESE ITEMS AND MANY MORE HERE!

Hey guys so I decided recently that I like eating food and buying nice things and would like to live some place nice on my own one day and since I am a woman who thinks these things are important, then I should have money to do them. So 2014 is the year of monetizing on my talents and here’s where you come in. If you like what I make and have money, you should buy things from me. I will now have many spaces available for you to do that. Here is one of them. More to come in the future. Lots of love and blessings for a prosperous new year. Lets support young artists and POC/WOC owned businesses (cuz lord knows there aint enough of them). And lets support people who aren’t afraid to say “Hey I do something and I am half-way good at it, come look” (because we all know the people who don’t deserve the spotlight are usually the ones who find themselves in it). So yeah. Tell your friends.

If you buy, send me a picture!

HEY YA’LL PLEASE SUPPORT THIS AWESOME WOC ARTIST AND HER RIDICULOUSLY GORGEOUS ARTWORK AND PRODUCTS!!!!!

SIGNAL BOOST!!!!!!!

These are HELLA fresh.

These gloves might change the way we make sound… and view performance.

My first experience with Imogen Heap was watching her live-mix her song “Just For Now”. I’ve always seen live-mixing as an artful blend of physicality, musicianship and technical skill. Years later she continues combining tech and music in creative ways.

Dear Tumblr,
I just got around to seeing this movie, despite the fact that it did not get a wide-release.
Find it and watch it.
Believe me when I say, this film is in the same league of sci-fi/speculative film classics as Bladerunner and Children of Men.
This.
Movie.
Should have a HUGE fandom.
It deals with issues like class, caste-systems, oppression, and the nature of humanity in a way mainstream films like The Hunger Games never could.
Let me tell you a story about the film-maker Joon-Ho Bong. Some years back, I had the privilege of attending a screening of one his films and the man happened to be there. At that time, he’d already gotten some notice for making The Host, another awesome film that allegorizes heavy issues in humanity.
So, he does the q&a at the end and someone asks him why he’s never produced a Hollywood movie.
…And he says, paraphrasing; that Hollywood would never let him make the kind of movies he’d like.  He’d have to hire an all-white cast and the actors would have to fit a certain aesthetic. They couldn’t be non-white, older than twenty-five, or non-thin…especially actresses.
He said, it’s not worth selling out, when he can make the kinds of movies he wants in South Korea.
…And then he makes this.
I’d love to spoil it for you, but suffice it say it was, as all good speculative sci-fi is, very effecting for me.
Again, I beg you PLEASE SEE THIS MOVIE.
And if you need more convincing??
Your faves are in it:  Octavia Spencer aka the above flawless actress in the poster, Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Ed Harris and the father/daughter pair from The Host, Kang-So Hung and Ah-Sung Ko (which had me thinking AU!).
Now, I shall commence spamming my tumblr with Snowpiercer reblogs…
Apologies ahead of time.
EDIT:  ONE MORE THING!! A critic asked who his current favorite actor is and his answer was Viola Davis…
This was YEARS before The Help.
