La Belle Laide


Aloha, my name is JulesKD and my real home is here. I use this just to follow people and things I think are nifty.

I am a single Mom by choice to a lovely boy born 5/16/13.

Also I'm a novelist in search of an agent, growing a pair refining my query letter.


Stuff I care about: Being art, through Kung Fu (choy lei fuht, broadsword and staff, light-contact sparring, trapping, and forms,) and through dance (Hula/Polynesian.) Human rights, equality, and the freedom of choice for all. Health and wellness, not only for me, but for everyone. I think you have to fight for those things and not just bitch about them. Science, animal rights, availability of information, sustainable living. Movies, music, art, and how best to have fun and adventures. Laughter, friends, joy. I root for the underdog.


Stuff I don't care about: what's fashionable, cooing at myself in the mirror, (I avoid the mirror as much as possible,) who's banging whom. I try my best to avoid toxic stuff like magazines.


Oh, and finally I'm a massage therapist and I love my job! So I could tell you a story, make you feel awesome, dance a Hula, or I could leg-sweep you and punch you in the face. YOU NEVER KNOW.

Ask me anything
If I find any good ones, I’ll send them your way!

Thank you!  \o/

Tom Hardy at Locke Premiere Birmingham 16th April 2014 by Tim Cornbill on Flickr
And some excerpts from a Steven Knight interview @ wegotthiscovered -

When you pitched the movie to Tom Hardy, what exactly were you hoping that he would bring to the material?
Steven Knight: If you were going to have one actor onscreen for that long it better be the best, and I think he is the best actor we have. There were a lot of happy coincidences that led to this, but one of them was that I happened to be meeting him for something else. I know he loves theater and I said that I was thinking of doing effectively a play but in a theater that was this background of a motorway; a moving journey. He was very intrigued. So I wrote it with him in mind and within a couple of weeks we were shooting.
With Tom Hardy, he usually has a flamboyance in his roles and in this film, he has to strip all of that away and look very ordinary. Was it hard for him?
Steven Knight: No, it was something he relished because as he said, “This is my first straight role.” He’s always sort of a monster or larger than life or whatever. But with this, the sort of exceptional thing about Ivan Locke is how ordinary he is. When I wrote the part, I wanted him to be the most ordinary person in the world. He’s married with two kids, works with concrete, which is not exactly a glamorous occupation, and the thing that happens to him is not a kidnapping, it’s not a murder and it’s not a drug deal. It’s something that could happen to anyone, so it’s sort of an ordinary tragedy. Tom relished the idea that he would play this everyman and then see what was there and how this person reacts to this dilemma.

#myNYPD

the OOP heard around the world

The part that made me chuckle was the NY chapter of the ACLU. Like, “These pictures are nifty and all nice and neatly put together in this handy tag. Can y’all tag us so we’re in the loop? This is great for a class case- I mean class collection of pictures to show at a later date. Possibly in court.”

cisbronies asked: (yo, another hawaiian person here) I don't think flower crowns are appropriative of leis because they really don't look like haku leis, i think if they were associated with hawaiian culture at all they would be but seeing as they aren't and decorative flower crowns can be found in many other cultures i'd vote against it

This is also my thought, though I’m speaking as a white-passing mixed person. 

Every land has flowers or plants, and every people have worn flowers in the hair throughout history. Daisy-chains and rose-crowns and such. 

Same, I think, goes for something along the lines of wearing feathers in the hair. Like, a white person should absolutely not wear a Native American headdress. They are sacred, it’s appropriative, and let’s face it, it makes white people look ridiculous and ignorant. BUT, every culture has birds and feathers, and every culture has stuck a feather in their cap, or in their hair. There’s a difference.

How is there not a gifset of Stephen Colbert in the burrito porno from last night? You have failed me, Tumblr.

The NYPD tried to start a hashtag outpouring of positive memories with their police force. 

If this were ever a bad idea, it was probably the worst idea for arguably the most corrupt police force in America. 

via Vice:

What the person running the Twitter account probably failed to realize is that most people’s interactions with the cops fall into a few categories:

1. You are talking to them to get help after you or someone you knew was robbed, beaten, murdered, or sexually assaulted.

2. You are getting arrested. 

3. You are getting beaten by the police.

In category 1, you are probably not going to be like, “Oh, let me take a selfie with you fine officers so I can remember this moment,” and the other two categories are not things that the NYPD would like people on social media talking about. Additionally, the people who use Twitter a lot (and who aren’t Sonic the Hedgehog roleplayers) are the type who love fucking with authority figures. In any case, #myNYPD quickly became a trending topic in the United States, largely because people were tweeting and retweeting horrific images of police brutality perpetrated by New York City cops.
