Hello, ladies.

I suppose it’s a bit early, since I was going to originally post this on the 30th but in light of recent events *coughhatemail?seriously?cough*, I felt compelled to make this post ahead of time. Behold, the wonderful women of Hannibal.

I wanted to make this in celebration of the 30- days left on the countdown and this wonderful post made 2 years ago by the amazing madlori which I quote:

“Screw writing “strong” women.  Write interesting women.  Write well-rounded women.  Write complicated women.  Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner.  Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband.  Write a woman who doesn’t need a man.  Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks.  THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN.  Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people.  So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong.  Write characters who are people.”

As usual, everything here’s on redbubble.

hannibal & dalí ( a r t   m e m e )

 The art of Salvador Dalí is renowned for its extreme and often grotesque use of metaphor. Exploring themes such as voyeurism, self-disgust and the unconscious—or dream—state, Dalí “[diagnoses] diseases of the psyche,” (J.G. Ballard, 1974), which both predict human vulnerabilities and embrace the irrationality and excitement of living in the modern world. The distinct symbols of clocks and butterflies are prevalent in his work, the former perhaps signifying the liquidity of reality and the relativity of time, and the former, naturally, demonstrative of transformation.
