no sleep 'til brooklyn


female, she/her/hers. I tag for common triggers, but if you need something tagged let me know. The main content of this blog alternates between academia, music, and les mis.

I cry about Grantaire and art a lot.

I look like this.



how can peach and mario just like casually play tennis with the giant dinosaur turtle monster who is always threatening both of their lives? they all just set aside their pasts to have a good old game of tennis? also did bowser raise bowser jr. himself? is bowser a good father?

also like, again, ignorance or an occasional slip-up is one thing

but lmao there is NOTHING that will make me unfollow someone faster than posts to the effect of “i’m not tagging for triggers, those people need to just toughen up/get over it”

people really really need to be more conscious of trigger warnings. I’m seeing posts which SCREAM ‘trigger warning’ that go untagged. The majority of them are not for things that I personally need TWs for but I see them and I think of all the friends and people I follow on here who specifically ask for those triggers to be tagged - whether because of mild discomfort or a more serious result of personal trauma, or anything in between. 

It takes literally a second to tag posts and I know we all slip up but I follow several people who don’t tag at all. A few seconds of your time could spare someone a whole day of uneasiness - at the very least

when will the blood begin to race?
the sleeping bud burst into bloom?
when will the flames at last consume us?

GOLNAR: In many examples from even the earliest wave of punk studies, the author presents himself — and it is almost exclusively men who have written these books — as a scene insider through embellished anecdotes of his teen exploits and an author photo of himself in the pit. Like, hey look, I was there!! And I got sweaty! Now give me a book deal and/or tenure track job!

MIMI: Because the photograph of being in the pit is evidence of real participation in dudely rituals. It’s the punk equivalent of the anthropologist doing something risky, and therefor manly, like eating a poisonous frog or getting tattooed with a sharp rock or whatever, while studying ‘the natives’.

GOLNAR: It is also the academic equivalent of telling stories about how tough and cool you were as a young person! There is a real nostalgia for youth and youth cultures in these texts that nonetheless excises the quotidian violences and vulnerabilities that young people — particularly kids of color, girls, queers, etc. — have to live with today, both inside and outside of the punk scene. 

"On punk studies; or, how we find ourselves as punks, and as scholars, wondering at the academic study of punk and what it has to do with the scene we know", from GUILLOTINE series #4: Punk by Mimi Thi Nguyen and Golnar Nikpour (ed. Sarah McCarry)
