Via Feirth: “‘Too Funky’ – Director’s Cut - Thierry Mugler’s original director’s cut of George Michael’s “Too Funky” video is pretty spectacular. It differs quite a bit from the official clip, which focused on a few models strutting down a runway. Compared to the official version, this original take, directed by the fashion designer, had many more models featured (female and male) and an arguably more coherent storyline.”

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

Low-lands

Contractual swag piles up under multinational gauze.
Judging by the drowning we’re one product away
From final irrelevance.

O how meaning flees
Is the subject of my unfinished dissertation.
In the meantime, the meantime.

I drink and die. I wave away.
Candidates caterwaul a sleepless calling and lie
Down in prepared niches

Packing the primetime anomie.
Despair is emailed around the globe.
A gift bag is made in the image of starvation.

Women’s Tales? July says, “The film gets weirder and weirder and then in the end it advertises the real app, which I think is comical. The inspiration for the characters came to me spontaneously while looking at the autumn/winter 2014 Miu Miu collection, which I thought translated really well to the streets. I remember seeing all these white dresses in the showroom and thinking they would make lovely waitress uniforms, and then noticing a couple of nylon jackets which, for some reason, reminded me of a bus stop… Then we had so much fun at the fittings, because we had all kinds of women, from feisty teenagers to prison guards to old ladies trying on the clothes at the store.” Fesity means Latina, FYI.

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

"Somebody who is in control of their craft..of being a faggot."

From the video’s description:

Proving once again that dance music can arrive ready to push both the dancefloor and popular culture forward as one, Butler’s most provocative anthem to date lands with a groundbreaking music video directed by acclaimed director Matt Lambert. Part music video, part documentary, prominent voices from New York’s art, music, literary and nightlife scenes including Kalup Linzy, Honey Dijon, Juliana Huxtable and Contessa Stuto discuss their relationship to the word over the dark, cathartic undertones of Butler’s bold electronic production. “It’s a power word, it’s a magical word, it’s also a New York City word.” 

Gaga’s new recording from “Anything Goes” is incredible.
