celebrity, culture and radical politics in the heart of the american empire

Queer white cisgendered woman. I post a more or less equal mix of radical/leftist politics, disability rights, general US celebrity culture and One Direction stuff here. I tag all my shit so if some but not all of those things interest you I think we can still be cool.

My ask box is always open. I might not always respond to every anon message but I do read everything. Call me out on my shit if I say something shitty. Send hugs or coffee or whatever if you just wanna talk. Big love.

i thought that was on purpose omfg

i just realized that my mobile reblog of the “please use echolalia in a sentence” post duplicated itself, which is wonderful.

charles said something that REALLY fricked me up yesterday. i was force-feeding him pictures and videos from my 1d shows (see above) and kicking my feet in the air about how louis is ALWAYS singing with his hand on his stomach as if he is BODILY PUSHING THE MUSIC OUT OF HIS MOUTH-HOLE, and charles was like, “oh, yeah, they made us do that in glee club sometimes so that you’re aware of your diaphragm and keep your technique and breathing in check. it’s a training thing, although ppl usually don’t do it during performances.”

so NATURALLY now i am in a TERRIBLE DEATH SPIRAL of louis “i’d rate my chances at about zero” tomlinson, 18 years old, got accepted to the x-factor even though he’s not real sure HOW, and outwardly he’s protecting himself in EVERY WAY HE CAN THINK OF which is mainly to rely on being PERSONABLE and GREGARIOUS and ASSUME DEFEAT IS INEVITABLE SO IT STINGS LESS IF (WHEN) IT COMES, but at the same time he’s being taught proper singing technique for the first time and QUIETLY LATCHING ONTO IT LIKE A BILLION-LIMBED OCTOPUS, like FULL-ASS INTERNALIZING ANY ADVICE AND POTENTIAL ADVANTAGE HE CAN GET, especially now that it’s not just HIM but he’s part of a GROUP and even if he doesn’t BELIEVE IT he still wants to DO SO GOOD, WANTS IT SO BAD, AND AS A RESULT FINDS HIMSELF PRESSING HIS LIL PAW INTO HIS STOMACH DURING PERFORMANCES SO FORCEFULLY LIKE HE CAN PHYSICALLY EXPEL THE WANT OUT OF HIM THAT WAY.

AND HOW FOUR YEARS LATER HE’S STILL DOING THAT SAME GODDANGED THING, AS A SAFETY NET OR A NERVOUS HABIT OR A HOLDOVER FROM A BOY WHO WAS SO SURE HE WAS DOOMED BEFORE HE EVEN STARTED AND IS NOW A BAJILLIONAIRE SUPERSTAR BUT STILL FEELS THE NEED TO APOLOGIZE IN THEIR FEATURE-LENGTH MOVIE TO THE PLAIN WHITE TEES FOR HIS AUDITION SONG ANYWAY. LOUIS TOMLINSON: ADULT MAN, HUMAN BEING (?) WITH HABITS AND THOUGHTS AND COMPLEXITIES AND INTERNALIZED COPING MECHANISMS, A TANGLE OF WIRES AND SHORT FUSES AND SCRABBLED-TOGETHER CONNECTIONS. I AM IN A GREAT DEAL OF PAIN AND REQUIRE IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION.

If we listened to all the One Direction detractors, we would totally buy the reports that Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles are at loggerheads and sometimes it’s easy to believe, because the boys don’t interact much on stage.
Over the course of this most recent One Direction tour, we have been inundated with cute Niam moments, Narry dances, Ziam fun but very little Larry interactions….until this week that is.
We were delighted when one very kind fan shared this clip of the boys on stage in Chicago earlier this week. Have a watch of Harry dancing up to his old pal and tell us, does this look like a pair of men who hate each other?
It’s been reported that Louis and Zayn Malik are furious with Harry currently, because of his pious and holier than thou reaction to their Peru marijuana video, which was leaked in June of this year.
Some sources say the band aren’t travelling together much and that Zouis are refusing to spend time to Styles, others have claimed that the group are all staying in separate hotels because of the friction.
However, one watch of this clip and we don’t want to believe it at all. There’s still a BFF friendship there surely?
One Direction are heading home this week, at least most of them are, as they enjoy a ten day break in their tour schedule.
It’s been reported that Tommo is already back in England and will soon start preparing for his charity football match in Glasgow this week. Harry hasn’t been spotted since yesterday, though some sources have said that he has headed to his second home of LA, to hang out with a few of his famous mates before returning to the tour later in September.
Have a watch of Harry’s cute dance and Louis’ reaction and tell us what you think below…

And then the vine of this gif:

Just throwing it out there.

oh man it took me literally 2 seconds of this video to remember exactly how the rest of it went

I hated this commercial. Turns out I still hate it.

OH MY GOD THIS DAMN COMMERCIAL

I CAN’T FUCKING STOP LAUGHING its as awful as i remembered it

i cant quite explain this commercial and how it came back to me like

i couldnt remember the exact words by heart but. everything they said chimed in my head like a song i’d heard a long time ago. it was almost rhythmic, buried deep in my memory. it was probably the most bizarre way ive ever remembered something.

oh man, there was also one about a new furnace in the winter~ i think it ran way less though
