mizbingley ASKED:
I really enjoy reading your work and powderdoom has been a tremendous resource for me since I started playing with makeup in the last year and change. A post you made about turning trauma into an accessory (super paraphrased ik) really propelled me forward in my second semester thesis on fashion in Katherine Anne Porter, thank you for writing such thought provoking pieces and doing what you do.

Aw thank you v much! I’d love to read your fashion writing if you ever want to share it.

In Defense Of Kanye's Vanity: The Politics Of Black Self-Love 

Kanye West has become a pop-culture punch line, but those who have dismissed him as aimlessly arrogant have missed the point. He is part of a long tradition of black artists who have fashioned a deeply political articulation of what it means to love yourself.

People want to look effortless and carefree with their clothes because it could be conflated to imply they have their shit together and don’t worry about their body. There’s no anxiety in Céline or a beautifully cut Lanvin skirt. But anxiety is part of my identity, and I like clothes that bring it out. If I have to suffer this mortal coil, you’re gonna hear about it. Everything I do is out of the anxious death drive, let’s be real.”

Film Meme - (4/7) Directors- Park Chan-Wook

I don`t feel enjoyment watching films that evoke passivity. If you need that kind of comfort, I don’t understand why you wouldn’t go to a spa. In our lives, we have good things and bad things, happiness and pain. Life is full of pain and happiness and that’s what I wanted to show.

i luv when u ppl don’t gender me thank u 4 respecting my wishes as i continue in my lil gender spiral!!! much appreciated many thanks

i’m honestly so funny but only to myself and to people as fucked up as i am and i love that. my wardrobe choices are always jokes. jokes about body terror and horror and anxiety and freedom. that is the secret. i am a sartorial comedian and i’m always laughing inside, and my laughter sounds like screaming

Stories by Arabelle Sicardi : Contently 

Some of yall ask where they can find such and such article I’ve written. Here are all the things I’ve done recently for every online place I write for, in one neat place 4 you. I update it with every byline even if I do not post everything on this tumblr (which I do not, it would be annoying). Maybe one day I will get around to including the PDF’s of the print work I do, but not anytime soon.

Feminist Horror and To Be Pynchonesque
“Whenever Bill Vignola typed his own name in MS Word, the email to Gates explained, it was automatically changed to Bill Vaginal. Presumably Vignola caught this sometimes, but not always, and no doubt this serious man was sad to come across like a character in a Thomas Pynchon novel.”
“It’s totally reasonable to freak out over how good the essays in Consider the Lobster or Slouching Towards Bethlehem are, but for my money, the writer who has had just as much—maybe more—influence on the style and tone of many of today’s writers is Nora Ephron.”
Feminist horror? Yes please.
How Birthright encourages American Jews to embrace Israel.
“Boston’s structure, for example, looks a lot like an ‘amorphous liquid.’ Seattle is another liquid, and so is Los Angeles. Chicago, which was designed on a grid, looks like glass, he says; New York resembles a highly ordered crystal.”
“To make a song that was, essentially, an anthem for guys who are most likely to date rape somebody was the most ironic thing.”
Roger Angell is getting older—he’d be the first one to tell you—but, lucky for us, is still willing to be the subject of the occasional profile.
Well, now you know.
Mandatory.

David Mitchell, Siri Hustvedt, Karen Joy Fowler, and several others made it onto this year’s Man Booker Prize longlist, beating out every single Canadian.
