Important Message about the Future of Elle Collins on Tumblr

I have decided to let this blog die after five years and a few months. It will stay here, obviously, but I won’t be updating anymore. As part of a new multi-platform rebranding effort (my offline career might be a thing, it turns out), I’ve decided I need a new home account that doesn’t involve archives stretching back to what I thought was cool in 2010.

If you want to keep following me, here’s where to do that:

ElleMarieCollins.tumblr.com is my new home base on Tumblr. There is literally nothing there yet, but there will be soon. The goal is for it to be more writing-oriented.

ComicsRiot.com will continue to be where I post about comics about related issues.

PopPatterns.tumblr.com is another new blog where I plan to post TV and movie related stuff. Probably music too.

I will probably post this a few more times over the next few days, so people see it. If that annoys you, feel free to unfollow now, because there won’t be anything further here besides posts about how you should follow me somewhere else.

But please, follow me somewhere else. I’m probably fond of you.

The Identity Project 

This photography project seeks to explore the labels we choose to identify with when defining our gender and sexuality.

Photographer: Sarah Deragon

Sarah is trying to raise funds so she can expand the project and photograph people in other cities besides San Francisco. Click here to find out more and/or donate to the cause!

Do you think if her travel gets funded she’ll be able to find some self-identified trans women to photograph? I can’t help but wonder, because I suspect there’s no shortage of trans women in San Francisco, which makes me wonder if she’s looking.

Seriously though, I am so excited about Katharine Isabelle joining the cast of Hannibal.

"Which of the vegetables wears the strap-on?" is something I say in everyday conversations now. 

What is this comedian’s name? I’m interested in seeing her act in non-GIF form, but I’m not going to google vegetables wearing strap-ons.

Mae Martin!

What do you know, her name is all over the wall behind her! It didn’t even occur to me to look there.

Thanks.

The same clock shows up in Trouble in Paradise (1932) and Duck Soup (1933).  Hans Dreier did art direction for both films.  I’ve been unable to confirm whether they both appear in Christian Marclay’s The Clock.

That’s a great clock.

Jonathan Richman - That Summer Feeling (I, Jonathan)

thenearsightedmonkey:

Dear Students,

This sweeeeet song is full of images. If you are stumped about what to do for your final project maybe you can play a song you love like I love this song and make it the launch pad to start getting somewhere right away.

O! It’s true!

Your final project can be started by something as ordinary and extraordinary as a scene that’s called to mind by a song.

I’m just sayin’!

Sincerely

Prof. Chewbacca

sam:

I can feel it today, that summer feeling. It’s going to be a good one, right? Let’s all drink some beers in the park and play some bocce and croquet soon, okay?

I first heard this song in high school, and I didn’t understand how the summer feeling could possibly be something sad and haunting. 

I understand now.
