So I just finished watching this movie and omg it is the greatest thing ever. It's a movie about a high school kid who accidentally comes out of the closest and his struggle to be more than just an accessory. I think it's actually pretty good representation of what high school is like but obviously more dramatized. Plus I couldn't help but geek out about the fashion. I wish everyone dressed the way the cast of this movie dressed. Who ever was the costume designer, I want you to design my whole closet. Also it has so many great actresses and actors. You might recognize Sasha Pieterse from PLL, Evanna Lynch from Harry Potter, Xosha Roquemore from Mindy Project, Natasha Lyonne from Orange is the New Black, and Jojo. Totally geeking out right now.
Have you heard the original version of this song by Beastie Boys? If not then you should stop not and go listen to it. Ok so apparently this whole album was wildly offensive and they later came out and said that it was supposed to be a satirical album. Also there is a controversy about whether it was actually satirical or if that was just a way for them to cover their asses. I'm not super educated about this topic butttttttt I do know that Sizzy Rocket made a kick ass remake of it. Not only is it more female friendly but it's hella catchy. The music video is super weird though.
3. Things to do before getting married
When I was looking for some inspiration for my "30 before 30" list I came across a lot of lists of things to do before getting married but I really like this one by Hello Giggles (which if you don't already know, is a blog run by a group of girls, one of which is Zooey Deschanel). Here is the link.
4. Make up printer
This is a super cool concept. Basically you can pick any color you can find on the internet and you "print" it into an eye shadow, lipstick, foundations, anything make up based. The thing I'm skeptical about is the quality (which I'm sure will improve as time goes on). I'm also wondering if there is going to be a way to do shimmer, glitter, or if it's only matte. Super cool idea though and I like that her whole concept is empowering women to make their own makeup and taking the power from the big make up companies. Link to the article and video here.
5. The Flipside
This is a really cool youtube series by Soul Pancake that brings up thought provoking questions in a really entertaining way. I am dead serious when I say I watched all of the videos in one night. They are that good! Also if you've never heard of Soul Pancake it's a youtube channel by Rain Wilson. He doesn't make most of the videos. This is the channel that Kid President is on (if you haven't seen his pep talk stop what you are doing right now and go watch that). Ok so here is one of my favorite of the Flipside videos and make sure to check out the rest!
Have an awesome weekend!
