i was tagged by @dibidibidismynameisjhope for a selfie tag! it’s finally autumn but it’s still warm rip

i’m tagging @softflannellesbian @homeinabookshelf @taratrophyfish @kellyzipcode @foryoubybts @exohplanet @xlumpyspacelionx @pentamilk @rnbseoul and whoever wants to do this!!

Face the Music airs TODAY!! Boarded by me ( @arythusa ), Amelia ( @amelia-lorenz ), Sarah, and Cassie, directed by Giancarlo ( @giancarlovolpe ). 

Featuring songs by Amelia (Moon’s song) and me (Star’s song)!! I don’t know how to write songs!!! 

there’s a rule about taking Doctor Who seriously and it’s that to take it seriously you need to not take it too seriously 

this show doesn’t take itself seriously, no matter how dark it might get at times

this isn’t some fucking gritty Edgelord show, this is a show watched by millions of children about hope and belief and trying to help people even when it seems hopeless and even when it doesn’t work, we should never hope that anyone in it stays dead, especially not anyone that represents so much for so many

above all we should never as older fans want anything for it that would take away from the enjoyment of the younger fans

you can’t treat it the same way you would a lot of other shows. its demographic is anyone who is willing to believe in it, anyone of any age. 

this is a show about an idiot in a magical box who fixes things with a screwdriver and a belief in the goodness of people

an idiot who gets into ridiculous situations that are often also dire, who saves the day always but only uses violence as a last resort, who tries to win with words and cleverness first 

over the last few years it’s been one of the only shows on television still trying to tell a hopeful story in a world obsessed with Edgy Cynical Realism, while never shying away from how harsh the universe can be

it is a show about possibility where almost any thing or person or story that can be imagined could be plausible (hello, people being killed by plastic inflatable chairs, a small box being infinitely huge on the inside, a lesbian being saved by her magical star girlfriend)

it is a show created by lifelong fans, it is a constant love letter to itself with stupid little in jokes and nostalgic trips, and above all it is a message and lesson of hope and kindness

take it or leave it but that is what it will or at least should always be

I had the awesome privilege of working on Redbull’s Music Academy NYC street campaign again this year, which is starting to go live around Brooklyn in the form of murals by the ever-amazing painters at Colossal Media (I can’t imagine trying to copy photorealistic art onto a big wall—those guys are so good but they probably also hate me at this point lmao). 

Anyway, I did portraits of Gucci Mane, Alice Coltrane, Jenny Hval, and Solange, so if you see their faces around the city this month, let me know!

In this month of pride, let me give a shoutout to all my LGBTQIA+ people who have changed how they identify over the years. To the people still trying to figure out their identity, even if they thought they found one that fit.

You’re no less part of the community if you first identified as a lesbian, but now ID as a straight trans man. You’re not any less if you first identified as bi, but now consider yourself gay. You’re not any less if you identified as a binary trans person but now have a nonbinary identity.

Don’t let anyone convince you that you had to have known you were a certain way since you were a child to be valid. Don’t let anyone convince you that because your label could change in the future, you aren’t welcome. Don’t let anyone convince you that you must identify a certain way.

We’re all growing and learning about ourselves and maybe what fits today won’t fit a decade from now, but that’s okay. You’re not a bad person for not immediately having perfect knowledge of yourself. You’re not a fake because your identity has changed.

WHY DO I FEEL LIKE HE WAS GONNA DROP A BIG CONFESSION BOMB HERE OR ASK AKIRA OUT ON A DATe—BOY SAY IT YA’LL PRACTICALLY DATING

Also anyone notice Ryuji is really the only one that ever calls you late at night to “talk” they’re so…

Not everyone will contribute the exact same things to the rest of the world. Some will be talented in one area, while others in another. The important thing is that everyone contributes, not how they’re expected to, but how they’re created to do best.
