I do believe I’ve babbled endlessly about my long time devotion to Thao Nguyen’s brilliant music both as a solo artist and with her band The Get Down Stay Down more than excessively in the past, so let’s not get into it so deeply this time around. Instead, let’s marvel at her cool dance moves and cutthroat ferocity in the video for Meticulous Bird, but one of so many genius tunes off of critically acclaimed 2016 album A Man Alive, easily one of that year’s best and most creative albums. Thao & The Get Down Stay Down’s spellbinding experimental folk meets art pop is cheeky jittering and whimsical bristling on this mesmerizing spectacular. There seems to be something brewing in the waters here in San Francisco. So many local acts are dishing out fiery mettle on their magnificent tunes (for another example, go listen to K.Flay’s latest songs). I’m convinced after watching the video for Meticulous Bird that I need to go hang out at a grocery store with Thao. It might be the best time of my life. A Man Alive is out now via Ribbon Music.

anonymous asked:

do you have anywhere specific you look online for fashion inspiration? every time I just browse pinterest or instagram like every single ~fall outfit idea~ is skinny jeans + earth toned boots + cardigan + scarf and I'm SO BORED.

YES I KNOW THAT LOOK, the white girl in fall look; it’s not a bad look, but it’s a very predictable look, and I totally understand wanting to move away from that. I too moved away from a look that wasn’t bad, yet was also literally and figuratively stifling. so, how do you find inspiration? 

what I do is follow individual style bloggers + and street style blogs/accounts. 99% of this takes place on instagram, so get ready to download the app. if you’re going to use pinterest, make sure to search “street style”, not “style”. street style is what you call photos that are taken at various fashion weeks, of models and influencers and designers and average people who wanted to dress up and see the shows. it’s a great way to eyeball trends and to find things you can mix and match for yourself. often you’ll see a person whose look you really like, and it only takes a reverse image search to find them on instagram. nine out of ten times they’ll have a style blog of their own. if that sounds like a lot of work, it is. so here are a few of my favorites to get you started:

street style on tumblr: my only stop is 15x20. it showcases a huge variety of trendy, inventive looks, all put together by people who want to be eyecatching. one of my absolute go-tos. I get the germ of most of my outfit ideas here.

style on instagram: @lookbook is a solid account. mostly it’s images tagged #lookbook by bloggers or would-be influencers, and they’re all real people, so a lot of times you can follow them back to their style pages. one issue is that they usually don’t give details of where to buy the items of clothing they wear. also skews a little younger. 

fashion bloggers I follow on instagram:

@daniellevanier: really inventive, takes risks, is a pioneer of “it doesn’t have to be fitted” imo, and has introduced me to one of my favorite brands ever, ASOS White. sporty, femme, she can do it all. love her. 

@lolitamas: bang on with trends, she always seems to know what’s coming in the new season. she does a bunch of lifestyle blogging too, but her fashion posts are what I’m there for. she’s very sweet, very feminine, and a lot of her looks nail high-fashion casual, which I appreciate the hell out of. 

@masha: does the coolest things with layers and sneakers, and she really brings a lot of texture to every outfit. she looks great all the time, which is probably a curse when you’re that pretty, but she pays it forward by religiously cross-linking her outfit posts so you can track down where she got what.

@mamacaxx: just the most bright and exciting wardrobe; she knows how to make one garment do a million different things. pretty sure she and I bought our lavender frilly shirt dresses on the same day. 

@hhasselhoff: I am smitten by her beauty all the time, and I’m so all over the silk boudoir look she always seems to have going. someday I’m going to find out how she, someone with similar proportions to me, is able to hide her bra straps in all those satin dresses. 

@nicolettemason: femme, queer, and constantly doing awesome things with patterns. this was an immediate must-follow from me, and she’s just come out with a really trendy plus-size clothing line called premme, if any of you ladies out there are interested.

@asos_debbie: SHE KNOWS COLOR THEORY, and knocks it out of the park every time. she’s a buyer and stylist for asos, so she also has the inside scoop on new items that are dropping. also, incredible shoes, always. 

@aspensdottir: I just started following her, and it was the best decision I’ve made all week (and not just because she immediately liked every picture of my cats that I’ve ever posted). she’s incredibly inventive, and recycles various items of clothing in the most refreshing way. I’ve actually tossed a few things in some shopping carts because of her, and even though she’s half my size, the outfits she puts together are super adaptable to anyone. a++

the more you poke around instagram, the more you’ll find new bloggers that appeal to you specifically! it took me about a year to round up the 250 fashion accounts I follow, but it was worth it. now whenever I lack inspiration, I grab my phone and start seeing what clicks for me. good luck! 

Give me Robert Sugden admitting that he did something he regrets, and Aaron telling him he knows. 

Give me Aaron reaching out and saying he needs professional help to get past all his problems.

Give me Robert breaking down and not being able to look at Aaron for shame. Give me Robert getting help, actually working to change his self-loathing patterns. Give me Aaron supporting him because he can see the self-harming pattern and he knows that Robert can be so much better.

Give me Rebecca getting a plot that doesn’t involve who she is sleeping with and why. 

Give me Robert taking agency over his own life and working to build a stable relationship with the man he loves.

The reason why you took so long to respond to the criticism and the pleas has nothing to do with you mulling it over, and everything to do with you not wanting to overshadow the promotion of one of your most profitable shows to date which fifth season premiers today. What a cowardly move, and what an idiotic response.

You could at least give an explanation as to why it was cancelled. Especially when a show like @13reasonswhy gets another season despite the source material’s storyline having ended and people criticising you harshly for how you have handled sensitive issues such as mental illness and suicide prevention.

The Get Down and Sense8 were impeccably written, and handled issues like racism, sexuality, and politics among other things extremely well while having amazing and healthy POC and LGBTQ+ representation. These shows were important, entertaining, clever and meaningful, and we as the audience have the right to a proper explanation as to why they were cancelled, not just bullshit excuses.

The hashtag in the end almost seems like you are laughing in our faces. Just like when you cancelled it by retelling what is so amazing about it!?

You hear it now too, don’t you? The song is now yours, just as the story has always been yours. And with this final piece, your understanding of these impossible events is complete. Like I said before, you’re ready now. Darkness surrounds you, but be not afraid. After all, you’re going to win. We know that much. But that is the limit of my knowledge. You’re all caught up now. Whatever happens next, well, we’ll just have to find out… Together
