Once a Garage, Now a Light-Filled Home in Amsterdam

by Caroline Williamson

Once a Garage, Now a Light-Filled Home in Amsterdam

This Amsterdam-based home used to be a garage before i29 interior architects got ahold of it. Now it’s a light-filled space with a long, pitched skylight that runs through the open floor plan living area. The main floor houses 230 square meters (2475 square feet) so each area feels open and spacious.

The color palette was kept simple with bright white for the walls and ceilings, light gray floors, and rough oak and black surfaces, but they brought in a bold green spice it up.

The green, along with the black and wood elements, ground the large space, and the hand-knotted rug, designed by i29 also, ties everything together.

Two steps lead to the kitchen and dining room, which continues the use of simple materials. A black table is paired with black and wood chairs.

The kitchen was custom designed with integrated storage within the large panels of wood.

A black cooktop was incorporated into the black island that has a wood base underneath it.

God Loves Little Girls Who Stand Up For Others

Retail | Denver, CO, USA

(I’m a manager at a technology store and a lesbian. There are two men holding hands and giving each other little kisses every now and then, a woman who is trying her hardest not to look at them, and a mother and her five- or six-year-old daughter, all waiting in line. The two men get to the register.)

Man #1: “Hi, we were wondering if you do wedding registry here?”

Me: “No, sorry, we don’t. But my wife and I found when we were doing our wedding registry stuff that if you find a shop that doesn’t do a registry, just write down the SKU numbers so people can come in and—”

Woman: “Come on, none of us have time to be dealing with your little gay pride bulls***! None of you should be getting married anyway. It’s a sin!”

(I start to open my mouth, but the little girl stomps her foot and gives the woman the meanest look I have ever seen.)

Little Girl: “That’s not nice! You say you’re sorry, right now!”

(The woman is taken aback, but is not done with her rant.)

Woman: “I will not apologize to sinners! What they are doing is wrong! God hates people like—”

Little Girl: “No! Girls can like girls and boys can like boys. If God wanted boys and girls only to like each other then he would have made them only like each other! And don’t you know God loves everyone, even boys who like boys?!”

(The woman and the little girl look at each other for a good 10 seconds until the woman drops her items on the floor and storms out. The mother, the gay couple, and I are all speechless. Like a total boss the little girl takes the expensive robotic toy from her mother and walks to the counter.)

Little Girl: “I want this, please!”

Man #2: “My soon to be husband and I would like to pay for that.”

Me: “And wouldn’t you know it, we give 50% discounts to amazing little girls here!”

Orphaned Baby Rhino Seems To Think He's A Fuzzy Little Lamb

by Sarah Barness
This orphaned rhino has made an unexpected friend.

Gertjie (aka Little G) is apparently bosom buddies with a lamb named Lammie. The two play together at the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Center, an organization that rehabilitates orphaned and injured animals.

The rhino seems to mimic the lamb's prancing as the two frolic happily on the grounds of their South African home.



Gertjie did not come from such happy beginnings, however. He was brought to the HESC after being found next to his dead mother, a victim of poachers.

According to the World Wildlife Fund, poaching has increased dramatically in the past few years, and hundreds of African rhinos are killed every year for their horns.

Fortunately, Gertjie has been thriving under the care of his human keepers, who have posted footage online to document his journey. These YouTube videos have helped make Gertjie an Internet star; they've also raised awareness about rhino poaching.

Now, watch Gertjie and Lammie run off into the sunset. Ah, bliss. Adorable, adorable bliss.

"In basically every case of entitlement within our culture, you’re going to see right-wing..."

“In basically every case of entitlement within our culture, you’re going to see right-wing reactionary behaviour. The thing that a conservative basically wants to conserve is their own entitlement. I’m seeing it time and again, in basically every topic I’m following lately. It seems like we should be pointing this out, because that entitlement is actually a very right-wing mindset, and it seems as though all our intellectual opponents on progressive topics — the slimepit, the MRAs, the 4chan and Reddit trolls, the antifeminists, the racists, the pure reactionaries — are overlapping to such a degree in these topics that it’s very helpful to identify the ways in which their Venn diagrams intersect. They are of a piece. They share more than just a xenophobia against inclusion and a hatred of progressivism generally. They share a reactionary mindset and streaks of right-wing authoritarianism. They look for heroes to worship, and they look for “heroes” on the other side (even when there are none such) to cut down.”

matou a família e foi pra livraria - especial eleições


eu tava lá me perguntando se dava tempo de comprar um último iogurte grego pra comer no lanche ou se os petralhas cubanos já teriam passado pelo zona sul confiscando os estoques, e veio essa pessoa.

- vê aí no seu computador como tá a apuração?

boa tarde, tudo bem comigo, de nada.

(ver aí um plano de dados pros iphones ninguém quer, né. enfim.)


- bom, o pezão já ganhou do crivella, mas a contagem dos votos pra presidente só vai ser divulgada quando acabar a votação de todos os estados.

risadinha irônica.

- é esse o país que as pessoas escolheram. um país em que a imprensa não pode mais se expressar.

- sim, porque nem todos os estados estão no mesmo fuso, né? se a imprensa “se expressar” enquanto ainda estão votando, vai influenciar na escolha das pessoas.

- filhinha, estamos numa ditadura.

- é o horário de verão, moço.

- ditadura.



mas que porra de ditadura é essa que ninguém vem aqui te bater com um tacape?, eu me pergunto.


ficamos nessa diversão de “é a ditadura petralha” e “é o fuso, moço” até as 20h, quando o acre se certificou de que todo o resto do país agora sabe (1) que ele existe de fato, e (2) que horas são lá. depois disso, como por milagre, todos perderam subitamente a vontade de azucrinar as pessoas que ali estavam trabalhando NUMA PORRA DE DOMINGO CHUVOSO e partiram. direto pra miami, presumo. com muitos livros do augusto cury na bagagem para auxiliar na adversidade.



mas largaram o lobão para trás, né. ninguém é obrigado afinal.

"I left Doctor Who because I could not get along with the senior people. I left because of politics...."

I left Doctor Who because I could not get along with the senior people. I left because of politics. I did not see eye-to-eye with them. I didn’t agree with the way things were being run. I didn’t like the culture that had grown up, around the series. So I left, I felt, over a principle.

I thought to remain, which would have made me a lot of money and given me huge visibility, the price I would have had to pay was to eat a lot of shit. I’m not being funny about that. I didn’t want to do that and it comes to the art of it, in a way. I feel that if you run your career and– we are vulnerable as actors and we are constantly humiliating ourselves auditioning. But if you allow that to go on, on a grand scale you will lose whatever it is about you and it will be present in your work.

If you allow your desire to be successful and visible and financially secure – if you allow that to make you throw shades on your parents, on your upbringing, then you’re knackered. You’ve got to keep something back, for yourself, because it’ll be present in your work. A purity or an idealism is essential or you’ll become– you’ve got to have standards, no matter how hard work that is. So it makes it a hard road, really.

You know, it’s easy to find a job when you’ve got no morals, you’ve got nothing to be compromised, you can go, ‘Yeah, yeah. That doesn’t matter. That director can bully that prop man and I won’t say anything about it’. But then when that director comes to you and says ‘I think you should play it like this’ you’ve surely got to go ‘How can I respect you, when you behave like that?’

So, that’s why I left. My face didn’t fit and I’m sure they were glad to see the back of me. The important thing is that I succeeded. It was a great part. I loved playing him. I loved connecting with that audience. Because I’ve always acted for adults and then suddenly you’re acting for children, who are far more tasteful; they will not be bullshitted. It’s either good, or it’s bad. They don’t schmooze at after-show parties, with cocktails.

Está permitido: se achar

by Polly

Daí aquele jornal lá, publicou outra coluna equivocadíssima dizendo basicamente que você só é o que outra pessoa disser que você é.

Não basta achar que tem borogodó para efetivamente ter borogodó. Não basta se achar interessante para ser uma mulher interessante. Os outros precisam reconhecer essas qualidades.

Os jovens têm uma expressão divertida para explicar esse tipo de reação feminina. Dizem: “Ela está se achando”.

Parece que muitas mulheres “estão se achando” interessantes, admiráveis e com borogodó. Falta apenas que os homens (que elas tanto querem) concordem com elas.

 

OK, mas agora  me tira uma dúvida: se o João disser que eu sou interessantíssima mas o José disser que não, vale a opinião de qual deles? Precisa ir pro tribunal de pequenas causas decidir se sou interessante ou não?

Esse é o problema de entregar nosso valor na mão dos outros. A opinião do José ou do João é apenas isso: a opinião deles. E se a opinião dos outros é válida, porque a minha não seria?  Se me acho maravilhosa, maravilhosa eu sou. Mesmo que nem todo mundo concorde.

E decreto agora que todas lendo isso são lindas, maravilhosas, interessantes e cheias de borogodó. Então se alguém um dia falar que você não é nada disso e está apenas se achando, pode dizer: sou sim, a Polly disse!

Where Do Birds Go

Water/ice has a lot of weird phases. Maybe asking 'where do birds go when it rains' is like asking 'where does Clark Kent go whenever Superman shows up?'

Hoje é dia das meninas

Por Janaina Marques

Hoje é dia das meninas e amanhã é o dia das crianças. Será que as meninas recebem o mesmo tratamento que os meninos? Sabemos que não.

Meninas têm suas genitais mutiladas assim quando nascidas, tolhendo-lhes o direito de sentir prazer. Não esqueço uma vez que assistia um seriado de top models e uma delas, nigeriana, disse que teve seu clitóris mutilado ainda criança.

Quantas meninas não são abusadas sexualmente pelos seus tios, primos, pais, avós, vizinhos, professores? As coisas tendem a piorar ao ingressar na faculdade, onde o assédio sexual e a misoginia dos professores soltam as asinhas.

Desde a mais tenra idade somos adultizadas. Enfeitadas, maquiadas e hiperssexualizadas. Somos ensinadas que devemos ser um objeto de decoração, que a nossa função é deixar a paisagem mais bela, e assim fazer parte dela, nos desumanizando.

Um pouco mais tarde, na adolescência, somos ensinadas que temos que satisfazer sexualmente os homens. Servi-los. “Menina descabelada e maltrapilha não é feminina”, logo não servirá sexualmente para nenhum homem e eis o apocalipse da sua vida. Afinal, tem que ser delicadinha.

Caso sejas ou tenhas sido gorda, as coisas são piores ainda. A gordofobia assola meninos e meninas, no entanto ela recai com um peso dobrado sobre as meninas. Ser gorda é perder as curvas femininas. Sendo assim se aparenta masculina, logo não atrairá os homens sexualmente, eis o fim da função da mulher sobre a terra.

E os estímulos intelectuais? Quase nenhum. Nos dão uma Barbie caucasiana, - afinal a mulher negra não desfruta de nenhum lazer e nem constrói uma família. Ela exclusivamente tem que servir sexualmente e com trabalhos braçais - que tem uma casa, um marido, amigas e sua função é ir ao shopping fazer compras. Ou nos dão um fogãozinho, um ferrinho de passar roupa e uma vassourinha. Afinal, temos que servir os homens. Eis o máximo de PhD que nos permitem ser.

E toda essa concentração da nossa educação para satisfazermos os homens em todos os aspectos, sendo o máximo e a redenção de nossas vidas, revela mais uma coisa: a lesbofobia. A mulher já não nasceu para sentir prazer, imagine só que absurdo se ela optar por “servir sexualmente” a uma mulher e não a um homem?

Enfim, meninas são criadas para fazer do mundo um lugar colorido para os meninos. Alimentá-los, servi-los, excitá-los, fazê-los gozar. Assim eles estarão felizes e relaxados para desempenharem seu “dom inato” que é o de produzir, descansar, se divertir e ter prazer.
