How long after arriving at someone’s house is it appropriate to ask for the WiFi password?
I have mine posted on a dry erase board in my entrance hallway so none of my friends need to wonder. :)
Um yes. I can attest to that….
I made a thing: Great art both inspires and destroys me in equal parts. by K. A. Bugajsky
There is a podcast of my friend, Mike, asking his parents about movies he has sent them via Netflix. The result is hilarious. I highly recommend taking the time to listen (especially through the end credits). This one is only 4 and half minutes and is about Frozen and Thor 2.
Art Assignment #7 What, How, Where!
by Kathy Ann Bugajsky (Boo-guy-ski)
My instruction was:
Leave a note - in an alley - upside down
I figured if I was going to leave a note in an alley a quote from MacBeth seemed the most appropriate to me
People tend to talk a lot about the epic romances that Shakespeare wrote about. However, there is one couple that starts off in the play as happily married, they share equal power, both make decisions, they both have the same set of goals and they take care of each other when adversity strikes.
Their downfall is when they stop acting as a team and no longer communicate directly with each other. When he is told of her death, his speech is one of the bleakest moments of sadness ever expressed by Shakespeare.
Unfortunately, this amazing power couple gets overlooked because, well, they kind of go on a killing spree and take out a good chunk of Scotland. But aside from that, they are madly in love with each other through the whole play and no amount of piled up corpses diminishes that.
Aside from all the murder, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are a truly great couple.
I believe that everyone, male or female, has an internal fangirl muppet that lives in their brain. When a person comes into contact with something (picture, quote, artwork, song, movie, TV show, etc) that inspires them, their internal fangirl muppet goes off in their head (See above gif for illustration). Sometimes, it is subtle and you can just see it in their eyes or on the giant smile on their face. Sometimes, it is external and leads to an inability to seem calm. This can manifest in a variety of ways (screaming, crying, babbling, rapid limb movement, making purchases). In the best times, it leads to expressing those emotions into artwork (pictures, writings, art, music, videos, movies, etc). When that happens and they put it out into the world, it can trigger someone else’s inner fangirl muppet to freak out. It is an endless loop of people being excited about things and getting other people excited about things.
But according to Dictionary.com, the definition of Fangirl/Fanboy is:
noun Informal: Often Disparaging. An obsessive female/male fan, especially of something technological or from popular culture
I have no issue with the definition. It is the “Often Disparaging” part that confuses me. Why is being a fan of something a negative thing? I think it is because when we think of being a fangirl we think of this:
But again, these ladies are having a great time enjoying something that makes them happy. They aren’t hurting anyone. They aren’t having gang wars against Rolling Stone fans. But it is written off by the media as examples of hysterical women being hysterical in public again. There is no wrong way to express your love of something (except committing crimes, of course). If someone wants to show their intensity for something by simply wearing a t-shirt or by extremely painting a mural on the side of a building, neither is a bad thing. It all comes from a place of inspiration.
Even though, the word fangirl is gender specific and Kermit the Frog is a male, I still picture the words and images intertwined which is why I say everyone has a fangirl muppet no matter what gender they are. Freaking out over something that is awesome should not be determined or described by your reproductive organs.
This is what being a Fangirl means to me.
Ian McKellen explaining MacBeth’s speech after Lady M’s death. So good. A must watch for everyone.
