Me: *gazes admiringly at my comic book spinner rack*
Me: Man, that was a really good birthday present. I should make some art to fit in the little notch at the top, though. Like paint something on cardstock, the oh-shit-I’m-in-grad-school Franny and cartoon me or something
Franny: or some really Jack Kirby silver age shit. ooooh can I have like, the Galactus crown and some Kirby krackle around my head
Me: actually, I was thinking… us holding, like, a Hostess fruit pie
Franny: OH MY GOD THE ADS I WAS ABOUT TO SAY THE SAME THING
Us, simultaneously: THIS IS WHY WE’RE DRIFT COMPATIBLE

me: I’ll always find you in the drift stealing my delicious Hostess Twinkies

How do you even begin to grieve for the time you lost to depression?

sofriel:

Nobody ever talks about this when they talk about recovery. But like… I was reading something that brought up the part in the new Captain America movie (because naturally all of my emotional revelations come from fandom) where Sam asks Steve, “What makes you happy?” and Steve replies, “I don’t know.” And how that’s a textbook depression response.

And I thought about that question and realized I can answer it, immediately, with multiple things. Then I thought about how until very recently, I would have had the same response as Steve. And then I sort of broke down.

I’ve thought a lot recently about finally being out of depression. About how for the first time in years, my concern is preventing relapse rather than trying to pull myself up. I almost started skipping down the sidewalk the other day because I realized I felt happy, and god, I could not remember the last time I felt like that, and it felt amazing, and how could I have lived for so long without feeling that? How could I have gone so long questioning if it was even possible?

How do you deal with that kind of pain and loss?

oh god I have so many feels about this

and I feel like Captain America might be a really helpful train of thought to explore on this topic, now that you mention it

how do you begin to grieve the years you lost to being frozen in ice

and

what’s in your notebook of things you missed that you’re trying to catch up on?

Contemporary Art Week!

Kehinde Wiley

Los Angeles native and New York-based visual artist Kehinde Wiley has firmly situated himself within art history’s portrait painting tradition. As a contemporary descendent of a long line of portraitists—including Reynolds, Gainsborough, Titian, Ingres, and others—Wiley engages the signs and visual rhetoric of the heroic, powerful, majestic, and sublime in his representation of urban black and brown men found throughout the world.

By applying the visual vocabulary and conventions of glorification, wealth, prestige, and history to subject matter drawn from the urban fabric, Wiley makes his subjects and their stylistic references juxtaposed inversions of each other, forcing ambiguity and provocative perplexity to pervade his imagery. Wiley’s larger-than-life figures disturb and interrupt tropes of portrait painting, often blurring the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation and the critical portrayal of masculinity and physicality as it pertains to the view of black and brown young men.

Important intelligence analysis

melannen:

Headcanon: Abed only got his job at SHIELD as a spousal benefit when they recruited Troy for their gadgets division

Evidence, incontrovertible: When everything else in Fury’s car was broken, what was still 100% operational? THE AIR CONDITIONING.

Bunny, related: Abed meets Sam while visiting Troy in the hospital and explains to him, scene by scene, why he is definitely the lead in a romcom, not the sidekick in an action movie.

holy shit this is so smart holy shit
