We can’t shut up.
“Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.”
— Susan Cain (via quotes-shape-us)

Seriously, my new hero!

Sometimes I even get to play a director in commercials :) 

“This trenchant collection assembles previously published essays and new work by cultural critic and novelist Gay (An Untamed State). Even though she loves pink, feels nostalgic about the Sweet Valley High series, and lets degrading rap lyrics blast from her car stereo, Gay is passionately committed to feminist issues, such as equal opportunity and pay and reproductive freedom. Writing about race, politics, gender, feminism, privilege, and popular media, she highlights how deeply misogyny is embedded in our culture, the careless language used to discuss sexual violence (seen in news reports of sexual assault), Hollywood’s tokenistic treatment of race, the trivialization of literature written by women, and the many ways American society fails women and African-Americans. Gay bemoans that fact that role models like Bill Cosby and Don Lemon urge African-Americans to act like ideal citizens while glossing over institutional problems in the education, social welfare, and justice system that exacerbate racism and poverty. Although Gay is aware of her privilege as a middle-class Haitian-American, she doesn’t refrain from advising inner-city students to have higher expectations. Whatever her topic, Gay’s provocative essays stand out for their bravery, wit, and emotional honesty. Agent: Maria Massie, Lippincott Massie McQuilkin. (Aug.)”

Chest swelling, life affirming goodness here.

Love this, sweet and hilarious. Usually folks talk to themselves on the bench (I know from experience!) so there’s a personification element here that is just spot on. Nice to see teens allowing themselves to essentially be kids, embracing the magical realism of a talking bench. 

And I can see the message here actually connecting, most importantly.

Swedish remix of Hong Kong hip-hop, a piece that proves the internet is indeed a very good thing, shrinking borders and bringing us all together (when you consider this all began with kids in the Bronx). Love this track.

FAVORITE LINE is a track off the debut solo album of J-Hoon, entitled “Noodles”. Released independently in Manila & Hong Kong
