I fucking hate James Tissot’s paintings because in ALL OF THEM there is ALWAYS someone staring right at you, but it’s not always immediately visible. You just feel watched by this mf. Sometimes the little shit is right there at the centre, but others the bastard is just gazing from the distance, it is CREEPY, my guys

STOP STARING AT ME, THIS IS DISCONCERTING AS FUCK

I think this is hilarious. We’ve been caught.

This is a not uncommon device in late 19th century art. It is a device to used to connect the space of the painting with the space of the viewer. Paintings are made to be seen and these type of paintings where the gaze of a figure is directed at the space of the spectator is, in a subtle way, acknowledging that it is being looked at. That is why, I suppose, that this direct gaze can feel uncomfortable. The painting “knows” that you’re looking at it and it is letting you know that it “knows”. 

This device is also used to invite the spectator into the space of the painting, situating them as a sort of “eye-witness” to the painted scene. As such it was used quite a bit in late 19th century history painting in order to immerse the spectator in the event depicted - making the audience an “eyewitness” to history, so to speak. Like in the painting below:

(Carl Bloch, “Hans Tausen defends Bishop Rønnow”, 1876 - the University of Copenhagen)

It is a device that has been named “theatrical” as opposed to the “absorption” seen in paintings where the subject is unaware of the gaze of the spectator (Michael Fried’s terms - he has written an entire book about this dynamic). It is, however, by modernist critics deemed “not quite the thing” for paintings to be “theatrical” in the sense that it acknowledges the gaze of the spectator.

the LAPD is having a town hall and getting fucking eviscerated

[Transcript:]

Person in bottom middle window: Yes, we can.

Caller: [delivering this speech like a furious John Mulaney bit] Great. First things first, Chief Moore, you gotta do a better job at pretending you care about this, man. I’ve been watching you roll your eyes and offer half-hearted smirks, acting like a teenager who’s falling asleep in detention. Are you not aware of the war crimes your department’s doing? Or are you just that impatient to go do more of them?

I see a lot of you, particularly Soboroff, only react when folks use profanity in their remarks. If you think curse words are bad, wait until you hear about the 600+ murders your department has committed over the last seven years! As long as Moore’s out here equating peaceful protestors with cops who murder black people, you all could pretend to be as angry about murder as the F word, OK, kids?

I know you’re all having a rough day, what with everyone here telling you you’re bad at your jobs. Have you considered being good at your jobs? If not, you could find new jobs in retail or restaurants! I know how desperate Garcetti is to get angelenos consuming again during a global pandemic. Where were the curfews then, by the way? Weird.

Chief Moore is morally obligated to resign. Mikey, I know you said you didn’t mean protestors are as much to blame for George Floyd’s murder as his murderers, but that’s a lie! It is what you meant! And we all know it. Mikey’s made it clear in his racist actions and empty platitudes that he doesn’t care about the well-being of his constituents. He loves to tear gas them, blind them, force them indoors with curfews that are announced only a half hour before they take effect, and racially profile as he does so!

Don’t think I didn’t hear about how yesterday you sent out an alert in English saying curfew started at 5 PM, and sent out an alert right after in Spanish saying it started at 6! What’s up with that, bud? All your cute Zoom background photos of the city won’t trick us into thinking you care about anything but yourself and what’s in your pockets.

To close with a James Cameron quote: “Cops think of all non-cops as less than they are. Stupid, weak, and evil. They dehumanize the people they are sworn to protect, and desensitize themselves in order to do that job.” That’s you pigs to a T. Black lives matter, act like it. Happy Tuesday!

A bird explaining to a hedgehog crossing so it doesn’t die.

!!! ok but that’s legitimately what it’s doing!! That’s a corvid right there (looks like a hooded crow, to be precise), which means it’s intelligent enough to recognize, a) cars are dangerous and streets should be treated with a certain degree of caution, b) this car’s slowing down for them–cars do that sometimes–which means they’re not in imminent danger, so it doesn’t have to fly away just yet, c) that hedgehog’s still gonna get killed if it doesn’t MOVE, FAST (cars can change speed very quickly and the hedgehog’s still in the way), and almost certainly also d) if the bird does nothing it gets a free lunch.

Y’all, Y’ALL. This bird is consciously deciding to put itself in danger in order to save the life of a very stupid creature. A creature which, if the bird did nothing, could be free food

i can’t - look if you follow me you know I have a thing for corvids, but this is - like!!! People are always saying “ah yes they have sub-human intelligence and don’t consider anything that isn’t immediately necessary for their own survival/pleasure,” but! Whether or not it can do philosophy, this crow is clearly demonstrating compassion. Even if it’s just the kind of compassion a toddler shows to a snail, a social creature that instinctively recognizes the potential for emotion in other beings, that’s still huge and cool and important and corvids!!! are! neat!!! 

this is fantastic

“Rioting police have driven vehicles into crowds, reproducing the assault that killed Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017. They have surrounded a car, smashed the windows, tazed the occupants and dragged them out onto the ground. Clad in paramilitary gear, they have attacked elderly bystanders, pepper-sprayed cooperative protesters and shot “nonlethal” rounds directly at reporters, causing serious injuries. In Austin, Texas, a 20-year-old man is in critical condition after being shot in the head with a “less-lethal” round. Across the country, rioting police are using tear gas in quantities that threaten the health and safety of demonstrators, especially in the midst of a respiratory disease pandemic. None of this quells disorder. Everything, from the militaristic posture to the attacks themselves, does more to inflame and agitate protesters than it does to calm the situation and bring order to the streets. In effect, rioting police have done as much to stoke unrest and destabilize the situation as those responsible for damaged buildings and burning cars. But where rioting protesters can be held to account for destruction and violence, rioting police have the imprimatur of the state. What we’ve seen from rioting police, in other words, is an assertion of power and impunity. In the face of mass anger over police brutality, they’ve effectively said So what? In the face of demands for change and reform — in short, in the face of accountability to the public they’re supposed to serve — they’ve bucked their more conciliatory colleagues with a firm No. In which case, if we want to understand the behavior of the past two weeks, we can’t just treat it as an explosion of wanton violence, we have to treat it as an attack on civil society and democratic accountability, one rooted in a dispute over who has the right to hold the police to account.”

The Police Are Rioting. We Need to Talk About It. (via wilwheaton)

REBLOG

Reblogging because I don’t think Dignity was on it last time I saw it.

Dignity is rare on this site. 

True, all those essential qualities are traditionally represented as female, but that’s partially because the female body in western society at least (which is as far as I can speak)  is seen as an object as a default, and therefore it can be seen as something not human more easily. In western culture, the male body is easier seen as human, and when represented symbolically, it tends to stands for power….

I’m not a symbol, I’m a fucking human.

P.D: still, great thread, I’m in a bad mood and felt like sharing.

For those of you who don’t know, this specific haka was written by a father to acknowledge his son’s wrongdoing and basically tell him to get his shit together. It is also modernly used as a haka tautoko, or acknowledgement, in some contexts.

Y'all see how symbolic this is, right? It’s both acknowledging current events as a show of solidarity, but also calling for world leaders to get their shit together and admit their wrongdoings and try to change things. This shit is powerful.

The user quobbo on tiktok did a little rundown analysis of it here:

Best wishes to these people obviously but I’m WHEEZING at the concept of a standard horror plot starter but the stranded travelers are an entire fully equipped orchestra.

It’s the prequel to every other horror film. Their haunting spirits play the background music.

Oh shoot, that actually would be a really cool concept. The film starts with no thematic music, and as each member of the orchestra is picked off, their instrument joins the soundtrack. Subtly, so you don’t really notice, and the end credits are a full orchestral symphony.

DUUUUUDE

white people are racist by default (in the united states as well as other countries). are you white? congrats, you’re racist, and here’s the explanation:

you grew up in a racist society -> you were socialized to be racist thanks to racism being a dominant ideology -> you benefit from racism -> you’re racist no matter how much u think you’re not.

unlearning it is going to be a constant battle and u will never unlearn it fully. accept this. it is ingrained in you as a result of your upbringing and the media you’ve consumed. the sooner you come to terms with your own racism, the sooner u can better yourself. recognize the problem in yourself instead of setting yourself apart from those “other” white people.

I fux heavy with the White people who keep putting this post on my dash

This applies to all social structures by the way.

You’re a man? You grew up benefitting from sexism.
You’re straight? You grew up with homophobic ideals.
You’re cis? You grew up with transphobic ideals.
You’re able bodied? You grew up with ableist tendencies.

The process of unlearning all of the ideology you were surrounded by is what activism is about. Do it.

And even if you’re not privileged under a given social structure, you might still have a lot of internalized things to unlearn

Our society teaches us to hate the oppressed, if an oppressed person says that what you believe or do is harmful and they tell you - don’t get offended, learn and do better

reminder that this blog, while not politically focused, supports BLM. bootlickers and racists aren’t welcome here, and never will be.

supporting black lives is not ‘political’

that’s actually a very good point. it should not be considered political to value black lives- apologies for the phrasing. ive deleted the original post but will keep this version up so as to preserve my mistake. @ all please rb this version instead.

we must learn to be better.
