Beauty will save the world

“I believe that our capacity to feel or experience beauty is the very foundation of your humanity; the most primordial aspect of what it means to be human.”

Cristian Mihai

beautyDostoyevsky once said that beauty will save the world. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn kind of agreed with him in his 1970 Nobel Lecture. (that’s just an excerpt but it’s so worth reading.)

Beauty will save the world.

But what exactly is beauty? How can you define it?

Hitchcock for Teens: In Defense of ‘Pretty Little Liars’

Brother speaks my mind.

Pop Junkie

I have a confession to make: I watch a show named Pretty Little Liars. I say this with such trepidation because of the image this title evokes. Said image is one that suggests this show is about a group of Barbie girls gossiping, lying and playing bitchy games of one-upmanship with one another. In other words, another Gossip Girl clone or Desperate Housewives for teens. Funnily enough, when the series of books that the show is based on were conceived, the aim was to create a narrative that emulated that of Housewives but within a high-school setting. On that note, Pretty Little Liars does, indeed, have some quite obvious (albeit superficial) parallels to both Housewives and Gossip Girl. The show begins with the murder of a high-school queen bee in the small town of Rosewood. The event unites the girl’s four best friends who proceed to search for the truth…

I’m the Slut in the Grocery Store

Powerful!

Laura A. Lord

I am your sexy eye candy.

I’m only here for you to stare at, to whistle at, to mumble comments under your breathe like some creepy mustached pervert.

This is obviously what I want.

This is why I came here.

I got up this morning and chose clothing based solely on how I thought you would react.

I was looking for a reaction.

To the guy I met in the grocery store today…is this what you think of me? Because when I walked past you, toting my little shopping basket, you paused in the aisle. Your eyes did an exaggerated roving gesture, full head tilt and all, from my feet to my chest and back down. You never even made eye contact with me.

“Damn that looks good,” you said.

That?

That as in my dress, because you can’t have it. It won’t fit you and it really isn’t your…

Billboard Music Awards!

The Billboard Music Awards 2014 was an ebullient event on twitter.

5sos

#5SOSBBAS was basically the top trend the whole time, which made me bask in euphoria. I’m a new member of the 5 Seconds of Summer fandom (I’d just discovered them about a month ago). I really relish in the fact that they all play instruments, and make their own instrumentals for the songs and performances.

As a plus, they’re Australian, all super duper cute, and make really good music. My favorite is Ashton Irwin, with those dimples!!! Yet, I gotta admit, Luke Hemmings is really hot. Calum Hood is so adorable, and Michael Clifford has this cool punk rocker thing going on.

It was awesome reading the pride from the 5SOS fandom ablaze on twitter.

Ariana Grande was another trending topic. Her performance was so cool! But to me, Ariana Grande will always be just so freaking adorable, so she can’t sell the sexy look.

Ariana Grande being cute <3

Aaaaaand Imagine Dragons won best rock album!!!!!! I literally squealed out loud when I saw that, I was so ecstatic. They so deserve it because Night Visions is GOLD! Plus, they performed Tiptoe and it was rockin’ awesome.

Basically a summation of the highlights of the #BBAS for me! Good night, lovelies! ❤
