Hey guys and gizzards! Me llamo Lena and I'm a west philly native living in good ol' Delaware. I'm a avid Muslimah(muslim girl if you didn't know), super Gleek, titanic nerd, mini Directioner, a Sherlockian, a bowtie-wearing Whovian, slowy becoming a soldier in Hiddles' army, a closet member of the Cumbercollective, a recent Potterhead, a supermegafoxyawsomehot Starkid, and a shameless Klainer all mashed into one body. I read books ilke there's no tomorrow and cry everytime I watch Titanic (seriously, every time). Love me or hate me, it isn't gonna change me (I prefer if you loved me instead). A great man once said, "Baby, you're not alone."
We’re at a family reunion and some dude asked my dad when I was getting married and with a totally straight face my dad was like “we’re just going to give her to whichever young man can provide us with the largest flock of goats”
The Jimmy Kimmel show invited me to do a big crazy Baz Luhrmann-style musical trailer version of David After Dentist. But I really wanted to just act out that whole scene, because I’ve always found it to be a brilliant distillation of the psychedelic experience o_O Thanks to Jimmy and everyone at his show. Dad’s Voice is played by the director, Will Burke.
I was mucking around with Audacity, listening to songs in reverse. For the fun of it, I put on everyone’s favorite song, Blurred Lines. And shockingly, I heard something I had never expected to hear. Robin Thicke was fooling us this whole time. He wasn’t trying to be misogynistic, he wanted us to listen closer to the song and understand that he in fact does believe his lady partner needs to be treated with the utmost respect.
You might find it VERY hard to believe, but I implore you to listen very closely (with headphones if you can, because it can be hard to hear). The message I’m talking about comes in around the 30 second mark.
After the 30sec mark I just kind of stared at my wall for the rest of the song trying to accept what I just heard.
TODAY IN BIOLOGY CLASS WE LEARNED THAT WHEN YOU MOW THE GRASS THE BLADES RELEASE A CHEMICAL THAT MAKES THAT GLORIOUS SMELL BUT THE REASON WHY THEY RELEASE THE CHEMICAL IS TO WARN OTHER GRASS BLADES OF DANGER SO WHEN WE SMELL THE FRESHLY CUT GRASS SMELL IT’S NOT JUST A GOOD SMELL IT’S THE SMELL OF THE BLOOD AND SCREAMS FOR HELP OF THOUSANDS OF GRASS BLADES
