Reblogging because I noticed a lot of people posting pics of Taylor and I from Q102’s Jingle Ball. They were captioning the photos with things like “OMG TAYLEY MAKE THE PERFECT COUPLE OH MY FEELS THEY SHOULD JUST START DATING ALREADY OMG HAYLOR”. 1st of all, it’s absurd. 2nd, it’s disrespectful. One gossip site even mentioned that they know I’m in a very serious relationship… but then went on to talk about how Taylor and I should just totally go out. Ugh. Get me out of here!
For some reason people still can’t seem to wrap their head around the concept of a female-fronted band. Much less a band comprised of nothing but females. But I’m still holding out hope for some of you.
Really, everyone should just know better anyway. I hate to see anyone belittle the friendships that I have with Taylor or Jeremy. We’ve worked way too hard for shallow-minded people to undervalue what this is. This is just a girl who joined a band with two guys based on a shared passion for creating music. It’s not complicated so don’t make it that way.
Amen. It astounds me how much ladies in this business still get trivialised like this. We’re making steps though. Williams is an incredibly talented lady but the combination of that, staying herself and sticking to her guns (no pun intended) are why she and Paramore have made such an impact.
Tyree Callahan has recycled (or upcycled, perhaps) a classic 1937 Underwood typewriter by replacing letters with sponges soaked across the spectrum with bright yellows, reds, blues and combinations thereof.
Through challenging camera angles Menno Aden abstracts most familiar actual living environments and public interiors into flattened two-dimensional scale models. A camera that the artist installed on the ceiling of various rooms takes pictures downwards of the interiors. The resulting images lay out space in symmetrical compositions that look like assemblages stripped off any kind of objectivity. The views into private homes and secret retreats bring up associations of the ubiquitous observation camera. The notion of surveillance is systematically played out by the artist to hint at society’s voyeuristic urge that popular culture has made mainstream.
