There are many artists that tap into vintage 60’s soul in their songs, but Laura Mvula really stands out.
Past, present, and future. This lady is a timeless gift.
I was OBSESSED with these as a kid. I didn’t have HBO, so my granny tapped them for me and I picked them up from her whenever the tape was full. I’m juts now realizing how much these are influencing my current art project.
I didn’t know these existed
Disney used to be on point. Idk wtf that Shake It Up and A.N.T Farm crap is. Even second generation Disney had SOME core to it; Early Hannah Montana, Early Suit life of Zack and Cody and Wizards of Wavery Place. Even Sonny with a chance was ALRIGHT. Now they’re just getting desperate.That’s so Raven taught things like ^THIS. Now the only thing Disney talks about is boy crushes. Lizzie McGuire had a variety of different episodes, And one episode was even about Miranda having an eating disorder. Something SERIOUS that people can ACTUALLY relate to.Then there was Phil Of The Future and Even Stevens- Mainly for entertainment as opposed to teaching moral lessons, But at least they were creative and entertaining. This new crap is just pathetic.
reblogging for my childhood omg
I SAY THIS EVERY TIME I REBLOG THIS, BUT I MADE THIS COMMENTARY ON MY PERSONAL BLOG LIKE A YEAR AGO AND “THAT-FILLIPINO-KID” HAS BEEN GETTING CREDIT FOR IT ALL THIS TIME, BUT IT’S MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE.
This is an excellent metaphor for what most people go through. Though I think the art was intended to be an inspirational, “go get your dreams” type image, i think its a lot more sad and true than that. The unicorn is a mthical beast that doesn’t look anything like a rhino, except that they most have a horn. There is nothing that a rhino can do to become a unicorn, short of destorying its mind and completely altering its body.
This isn’t a stretch for what most people go through when they have body image issues. They look in the magazines and she glorious beautiful people, people so beautiful they don’t actually exist. And some try to work to be exactly like those people. But maybe they just weren’t meant to be shaped like that.
A rhino can still be a beautiful rhino, it does not have to be a unicorn.
^ all of my thoughts I haven’t been able to put together coherently every time I see this
Procrastination is a thief. It steals our time, our potential, our self-esteem, our peace of mind.
