A professional nerd living in a fantasy world with a love of librarianship, project management, and GLaDOS.
I am always happy to discuss: the beauty of data, vegetarian tacos, Marvel characters, space travel, gender equality, my awesome pets, all things meta, geek culture, d10s, or why Mass Effect is perfect.
I have a wicked skull collection, my favorite clothing color is outer space, and I love sci-fi YA novels.
I am slowly combining my personal tumblr with my fandom tumblr because I like cute men and I like video games and I like smooching. I am also lazy and on tumblr with a napping baby so I am embracing it.
and now I think I will be making banana bread and potentially watching Black Mirror? any feels about that tv show?
TALK TO ME ABOUT BLACK MIRROR, HAVE YOU SEEN ANY EPISODE, I JUST WATCHED THE CHRISTMAS…
Do not marathon this show unless you want an intense and unshakable case of the feels. I had dreams after watching the first season that were so intense that I am still taking a break before watching season 2.
"A series exploring the current state of the press and more in depth, TV media. Almost all major media outlets are owned and operated by large corporate conglomerates which have their own set of personal and political agendas, which by definition, obscure and under represent the facts, all of which deceives and misleads the public. Using techniques to create the aesthetics of bad TV signals, the paintings which Axelrod has created, become metaphors for the unclear and altered information in the contemporary media. Freedom of the Press not only depicts specific individuals and current events, but also targets major television programs and the pundits that report and offer their own views about them as well.
The paintings reflect not just the concepts around the subject matter, but by the mediums/materials in which they’re produced. For instance the traditional use of pastels, often thought to be a medium used to create soft, gentle and unassuming paintings are in this series, being used to make large, pieces of subversive and controversial subject matter. The light box paintings, offer the idea of painting with light, which gives the same aesthetic as a television in a room, discharging colorful light fractures which get reflected of the walls and floor of the room.”
“Our newspapers, for the most part, present only the caricatures of disaffected minds. Indeed, the abuses of the freedom of the press here have been carried to a length never before known or borne by any civilized nation.” –Thomas Jefferson
