Bill Cosby is nothing like my father, and I am relieved.
In a Facebook post where I shared New York Magazine’s riveting profile of thirty-five women Bill Cosby is accused of raping (with one empty chair, because we may never know all of his victims), a friend asked if I can still enjoy The Cosby Show. He wondered if I could separate Cosby’s ‘humanness’ from his genius contributions to American culture, and particularly black American culture. These are questions he asked himself through me, I believe. They are questions that many 80s babies are grappling with, not because of whom Bill Cosby is as a man, but because of whom he has been as an ideal, as a model of respectable blackness and as a kind of father figure to many.

Today I dis-bound this book with a metal cover, so that it can go to the commercial bindery and get a new cover (the cover has gotten rather sharp and has been referred to as a ‘shiv’ by our cataloging department). Don’t worry, we have another pristine copy in special collections! This copy was our circulating copy.
However, I don’t know if I’m more proud that I was actually able to dis-bind it (those were RIVETS, not screws!) or that I was able to do so without stabbing myself in the hand.
The book is “The machine; as seen at the end of the mechanical age” by K. G. Pontus Hulteń, and it was a catalogue of an exhibition to held at the Museum of Modern Art, Nov. 25, 1968-Feb. 9, 1969; University of St. Thomas, Houston, Mar. 25-May 18, 1969; and San Francisco Museum of Art, June 23-Aug. 24, 1969.

Everytime I hear Julius’ voice, I find myself utterly transfixed by its emotive, dramatic quality, one that never fails to remind me of TV On The Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe. On new song Crying Diamonds, Julius combines that magnificent voice with a soundscape steeped in grandeur and cinematic fervor, a synthesis deeply riveting and wholly stirring. The symphonic pop song is a taste from a forthcoming EP, Re-Compositions. Crying Diamonds is a free download in the meantime, here.
i seem to disregard cool people following me but i regularly make posts with riveting content like ‘rosemary sears gleefully watching herself getting cucked’, ‘otacon making replacement jaws for raiden that make him look like he has chobit ears’, and ‘big boss has a fursona and it is a crocodile with a beard’
This probably won’t get a second look (that’s gonna be awkward) but just putting it up that I’m low-key keeping an eye out for a co-owner

I’ve been under Sevdaliza’s bewitching spell ever since I first encountered her dark and haunting music earlier this summer. The Iranian born, Netherlands raised artist is spectacularly unique and talented, delivering an irresistible style of mystical experimental pop and R&B. Today, she released a riveting music video for her twitchy, murky, and woozy single That Other Girl. They scanned Sevdaliza’s face and body and used revolutionary 3D technology to create the video. Its groundbreaking qualities match the avant-garde innovation of Sevdaliza’s gripping music.
