"The whole manner of Hepburn versus the relatively down-to-earth manner of Tracy and yet you sensed almost from the beginning that they would somehow get together, because of this contrast, because of the fact that there was something in each of them that saw something in the other and it developed. And sometimes it developed in odd ways, which is part of the charm and part of the fun."
I guess Orientalism is coming back.
“Chinese Whispers” will primarily examine how eastward-looking Westerners have understood, misunderstood, and appropriated Chinese culture in an exchange that Bolton likens to a complicated game of telephone (which the British call “Chinese whispers”)
This is a v. bad idea.
Apparently it will have a display from from CD John Galliano’s spring 2003 Christian Dior couture show as the focus of this exhibit is Chinese opera.
You know this piece of fucking work.Highlights include:
… white people, man.
Katy Perry is going to come in full yellow face. I can feel it. I CAN FEEL IT.
They’re just being racist on purpose at this point.

NO NO NO DISGUSTING NO
What the ever-loving fuck! Can we push Galliano into traffic please?

I hate Criminal Minds. I absolutely, positively hate what the show has become. Fuck that I ever started watching that shit.
do you know how difficult it is to feel secure in your looks and personality and overall self when absolutely no one has ever shown any interest in you whatsoever like yeah you shouldn’t base all of your self-confidence on other people but still there’s like always that irritating little voice inside of you that tells you that you’ve never been worth a second glance or getting to know for anyone and you can try to ignore it all you want but it’s still there
