Altered State of Being


I am....more than I was yesterday but less than I want to be for tomorrow. I find life tedious, amazing, astounding, exasperating, contradictory, heartbreaking, and so very beautiful. I want to devour it and make it everything I've ever dreamed because as far as we know we only get one...

We can’t get enough of this.

In this awesome video from director and choreographer Kemar Jewel, the underground culture of voguing is literally taken underground.

"I made the video to show that anywhere can be a performance area," Jewel said in a statement to The Huffington Post. "I am a member of Philadelphia’s Black Gay Ballroom Scene and I wanted to showcase all of its creativity and talent. Also, since voguing and the Ballroom Scene is an ‘underground scene,’ why not put it underground, literally! The video was filmed in a flash mob style to avoid getting arrested by the transit police. Sometimes you just have to take risks for your art."

Check out the awesome video above. Can’t get enough voguing?Check out this classic vogue battlebetween Sailor Moon and Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman Faces Sailor Moon In Epic Vogue-Off

By Andrew Wheeler

Who would win in a fight between Sailor Moon and Wonder Woman? Ribbons versus lariats? Invisible plane versus silver crystal? Sailor Scouts versus Amazon warriors? Sapphic overtones versus… well, honors even on that one.

In comics, the answer would come down to whoever was writing the book, but the real world has a different way of settling these questions. The dance-off. At the Streetstar Festival in Stockholm, Sweden, earlier this year, the two ladies met in the arena to see who would emerge triumphant. Their weapon of choice? Voguing. Now the video of that encounter has hit the YouTubes for everyone to enjoy.

I also hate sociology teachers coddling white kids “we’re not blaming you no one is attacking you okay” like actually you need to be teaching them that if their immediate thought when they see the consequences of racism and white privilege is “my white feelings” there’s something societally wrong because they’re repeatedly putting their feelings of being sad about being privileged (cry me a river) on par with or above poc’s actual oppression

YES

its funny how so many black men openly hated macklemore and no one once said “why are black men so bitter and jealous of macklemore?” but let black women discuss how racist, untalented, and ignorant iggy azalea is and suddenly we’re all bitter black bitches jealous of the poor innocent white girl lmao
