Friday I’m in love
Hello all you funky people!
My week has been full of scholarship business, walking around my home in my PJ’s and getting a bit of that famous autumn blues that seems to come when the weather gets colder.
To get out of it I try to do some sports. I got gym membership and it suits me great at the moment. I go do as I’m told, having fun and then done. Great.
Wednesday I did this funky Yoga class and yesterday I tried the dance class Sha’bam for the first time. I’m an old basketballplayer and that is pretty much my level of dance choreography but when I got there it was a major buzz, lamps and a filmcrew. They where following the teacher who came from New Zeeland and made a rockymentary about here for Reebok. Well I hid behind a big pillar in the middle of the room and danced away. The class was fun. Afterwards I learned that the teacher was indeed the women and maker of Sha’bam and Body Combat – Rachel Newsham. How cool is that!?
And more above see the truly inspiring short clip about the boys from the Unlocking the truth band. from the great avant garde diaries. Well watch all of them!
Also check out this little film about the National Geographic’s photographers. Truly beautiful and inspiring.
And prepare to get angry, cry and chocked about the world yet again. REad and look at this amazing project with women who has been sexual assaulted and them showing quotes from the people who attacked them.
And if you know any Swedish Handy-women – keep nominate them for my scholarship – the Isabellestipendiet!
Have a great weekend y’all!
Join the discussion and tell us your opinion.
Fin film om National Geographic’s fotografer! ((asså jag börjar typ alltid att gråta när jag läser era fredags tips (pga rörande såklart) haha!))
and here’s Project Unbreakable being used to show us just how rapey that catchy song, Blurred Lines, is: http://thesocietypages.org/socimages/2013/09/17/from-the-mouths-of-rapists-the-lyrics-of-robin-thickes-blurred-lines-and-real-life-rape/
Thanks wendy^ for posting that. I have been trying to talk to people about how awful that song is… so.e people agree. ..others say … but it’s just music!! Frustrating fight.
And Jess – you are so right. People are talking about yeah it’s just rap, or just ordinary Us slang but come on. Seeing it like this… Well no more words are needed.
Thanks Wendy – I have also been thinking about that track and now seeing this it’s just appalling. Crazy. Thank you for showing it!
