Life challenged...





Various scores by composer George Crumb. What I find fascinating about these is that they were painstakingly written by hand before computers. The imagination required to come up with these visual as well as aural conceptions for a piece of music is unbelievable. 

Music can visually be anything! When you write, don’t be tied to the staff paper!

Crumb wrote some weird shit. His music is even weirder LISTEN

I second this command and the YouTube link.

Josh Thomas talks about male suicide

I wonder how feminists will react to this

Probably ignore it then go back to making male tears mugs and gifs 

He’s almost literally saying ‘men showing signs of femininity is so severely discouraged that they’re killing themselves’.


Did you even read the captions?

Allow me to paraphrase; ‘Men being feminine is bad, because femininity is bad. And when men feel so oppressed by the inability to express their emotions and problems, because for some stupid reason, that’s considered ‘girly’, they take the only option out left available to them’.

If this doesn’t scream for the need for feminism to you, you really need to wake up to the fact that you’ve been blindly following trends and paradigms all designed to distract you from the real problems.

Need evidence of this in society? Think of how men would react when being invited to a ‘chick flick’ (i.e. A film with emotions in it).

if you ever feel bad about yourself, just remember this one time in my english class, we were writing horror stories and one of the girls wrote “it was friday the 13th, the night before halloween” for her opening sentence

what do you say when someone asks what you’re doing and you’re reading homosexual fanfiction based off of a book written 150 years ago

Tell them you’re reading a transformative work based on late Victorian literature that questions traditional views of gender and sexuality.

That was fucking beautiful
