Hi, I'm Nick. I just graduated from college. I have a job in education for a year and then I will be going to Emerson for graduate education in publishing. Generally, my (largely reblogged) topics include marxist philosophy, feminism, semiotics, literary theory, quite a bit of humor, and anything else that comes along. I'm also trying to change my self-conception by blogging positively under the tag "positive identity."


This is my wonderful girlfriend.
"Neither the content of the words nor their form is involved here. Whether the work is obscure or clear, poetry or prose, insignificant, important, whether it speaks of a pebble or of God, there is something in it that does not depend on its qualities and that deep within itself is always in the process of changing the work from the ground up. It is as though in the very heart of literature and language, beyond the visible movements that transform them, a point of instability were reserved, a power to work substantial metamorphoses, a power capable of changing everything about it without changing anything."
Maurice Blanchot, Literature and the Right to Death (via multiverse-honeybears)

Swans - Red Velvet Corridor

This piece of music would fit in perfectly with the Twin Peaks soundtracks and I’m serious about that.

Someone did it. Someone finally portrayed me perfectly in a single 6 second video.

"New Town" by Life Without Buildings

kelsium:

You can tell a girl she’s smart her whole life, encourage her in school, buy her a chemistry set, send her to math camp, help her apply for college scholarships in STEM fields, and she’s still eventually going to walk into a classroom, a lab, or a job interview and have some man dismiss her existence, deny her funding, pass her over for a promotion, or take credit for her work. How about you work on getting those assholes out of power and quit telling me not to call girls pretty.

Everything Tommy Wiseau does is like the beginning part of porn but the porn never happens and the beginning just extends throughout the entirety of the runtime

princess-neville:

girls being kept out of the sciences and pushed into the humanities; the humanities being valued less in our society than the sciences; and the humanities and sciences being looked at as stark opposites that couldn’t possibly be enjoyed for the same reasons are all problems that need to in some degree be tackled together

TWISTING CLASSICAL CHARACTERS LIKE DORIAN GRAY INTO A HOMOSEXUAL

Son, you might want to be sitting down for this one.

Dorian Gray was so gay the book was literally used as evidence in the author’s trial for sodomy.

raptorific:

A remake of George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four” that follows the plot and tone of the book exactly, but plays Bowling for Soup’s “1985” over the credits, leaving the audience baffled and wondering if it was supposed to imply a forthcoming, really inappropriate, sequel.
