Lupita Nyong’o breaks down the importance of having role models in the media and what they tell us about our psyche [x]
Diversity matters, representation matters, no matter the medium or fandom.
there’s a difference between “lazy” and “i don’t want to fucking do that shit”
Look, I’m glad ‘12 Years [A Slave]’ got made and it’s wonderful that people are seeing it and there is another view of what happened in America. But I’m not real sure why Steve McQueen wanted to tackle that particular sort of thing.
[‘Fruitvale Station’] explains things like the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the problems with stop and search, and is just more poignant. America is much more willing to acknowledge what happened in the past: ‘We freed the slaves! It’s all good!’ But to say: ‘We are still unnecessarily killing black men’ – let’s have a conversation about that.

I think in light of 12 Years a Slave winning the Oscar for Best Picture, this needs to be remembered. Because it is a very important point in terms of the palatability of 12 Years a Slave and why Fruitvale Station didn’t even get nominated when it has such acclaim outside of the Oscar world.(via artyartyhadaparty)
POLISH PATTERNS BY KACPER KOWALSKI
Photographer Kacper Kowalski - “I’m not sure if there is any more hackneyed subject in photography then nature. Maybe portraits… Landscapes are my favorite theme. I hunt for them near my home, by the way. And every time I am delighted. Graphic compositions of fields, roads and meadows, lakes like puzzle cuts, surprisingly symmetrical patterns on a frozen lake – these are Polish patterns.”
