Love this guy.
I almost teared up. This is so good.
That last one. Man.
See this is how you make a joke about racism
Xlizardx sent in this super cool submission. Here’s what she said:
"SAME GIRL, SAME DAY, *FIVE* DIFFERENT SIZES
I made this today to illustrate how inconsistent sizing in women’s clothing really is. Each of these skirts is a different size - and each fits me perfectly. So what size am I really?
Certainly not Oasis, Topshop, H&M, or Warehouse, clearly.”
Women’s clothes are completely sized by voodoo magic I shit you not
I love this.
I have sizes ranging from M to XXXL, sizes 10 to 22, and everything in between.

"But there are some black people who have the ‘white experience’ growing up."
“Most people are shocked to realize that nobody is stopping companies from making sex toys out of whatever materials they want, then labelling them however they please,” laments Epiphora, a snarky sex toy reviewer with six years (and 400 sex toy reviews) of experience. “It upsets me to see people so disillusioned with sex toys.”

this is hands down my favorite interview from this last tour…long but chock-full of goodness. re-blog it if you watch it and get anything out of it.
filmed HALLOWEEN 2013….in copenhagen, right before the show at pumpenhuset.
it’s more than an interview, it’s a mini-movie, beautifully shot and edited by folks who are working on a forthcoming Danish indie documentary about female representation in the music industry in denmark. (out early 2014, by Astrid Dynesen)
it starts with a rehearsal backstage with the wonderful danish electronic singer/songwriter force LYDMOR (she’s up and coming and amazing, get on it), who sang “delilah” with me later in the night.
internalized sexism, internet beauty and ugliness, pop, smart uses of nudity, Madonna, Miley Cyrus, boobs (and how we love them), being scolded by my record label for being fat, Bjork, Grimes, and the end of the planet.
-number of times i say “you know”: approximately a gazillion.
-number of times i uses the “P” word: 1. sorry.
-number of times i say “fuck you fuck you fuck you”: 1
choice quotes & moments:
"Our job as artists is to be as honest as possible".
"As an artist, you’re in a service position."
"If you believe everybody else, you really will turn into an asshole"
Thor (on the drums, ladies and gents):
"Jiggling tittie Committee!!"
"Smack that ass for a feminist!!"
Thor (drums), Jessie (from The Simple Pleasure, Chad’s band) and Chad (as an ensemble):
Chad (guitar) to the camera people, in his texas accent):
"you best, like, skeedaddle"
….and Jherek (bass), tuning my ukulele. what a gentleman. classic.
"This is the basic problem, this is why no one can agree about it. If you’re an empowered woman in a fucked up system, and you’re just playing and gaming the system that exists, but we all hate the system, is it really power? …You can look at the Madonnas, and the Lady Gagas, and the Miley Cyruses, and you can say they’re winning, they’re winning all the money, they’re winning all the fame, but they’re playing the game of a corrupt system.”
Did I just fall in love with Amanda even more? I think I just did.
I would KILL for this woman’s curves.
Christina Hendricks is my fucking hero. <3
