i got the sudden urge to draw myself in a steampunk outfit, but the problem is that even in a steampunk universe, that was full of intrepid adventurers and sky captains, this is what i would like to wear. not everyone in steampunkland can wear brown leather and goggles. 
i also suddenly REALLY NEEDED to draw EVERYONE I KNOW in steampunk/1800’s outfits too, and liz is totally letting me draw her so she’s next. she’s an eccentric gentleman motorist. 
i always say steampunk because it’s easier, but really i just call it that so i can… edit the victorian/edwardian time periods in any way i want. making hemlines shorter, making things cuter and more exciting, making things more colorful and less xenophobic. i like trains waaaay better than dirigibles and the country is just as good of a setting for adventure as the city or the sea.
this is a terribly self-serving drawing, i’m sorry. but not that sorry.

some thoughts

the same people who single us out and call us trashy or ugly or gross for liking what we like wouldn’t give a flying fuck about us if we looked and acted like them. so why would i every try and “fix” myself to fit your definition of how a respectable girl looks? why wouldn’t i change (or not change) my body to make it look exactly how i wanted? in the end, i’m the only one who has to live in this body.

finals week was kind of fun.
it was an awesome year.
see you guys next time, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Christina’s Mix CD Song Notes

Minnesota nice - Atmosphere feat. Prof, Felipe Cuauhtli & Gene Poole

            Just the introductory song for all the artists on atmosphere’s recent tour. it made my ears have an orgasm when i heard it.

 

I’m a lady – santogold

 

None shall pass – Aesop rock

 

Drain the sea – Olympic hopefuls

 

Henney Buggy Band – Sufjan Stevens

            THIS SONG IS MY LIFE AND I DON’T KNOW WHY.

 

Diablo – Etro Anime

 

Cherryboy Riot – Panty & Stocking OST

 

Like Lambs To The Riot – Belles Of Skin City

 

Find A Way – Smoosh

 

Tuu Mun Vaimoksein – Olavi Uusivirta

            This song is in finnish! Tuu mun vaimoksein means “please be my wife”. It’s a really sweet song.

 

Algorithm – Northern Howl

 

White Room – Cream

            Cream is such a delicious band. In my opinion this is one of THE BEST songs of all time. OF ALL TIME.

 

Dirge – Bare Knuckles

 

I Say Fever – Ramona Falls

            The music video for this song is insane. Go watch it!

 

Yours To Keep – The Teddybears

 

Always Coming Back Home To You/Say Shh – Atmosphere

Atmosphere’s old stuff isn’t as good, but always coming back home to you is the best song on seven’s travels. Also, seven’s travels was one of the first cd’s I ever bought (at electric fetus records, which recently got owned by a tornado) so harbor nostalgic feelings for it.  Say Shh is the secret song dedicated to Minnesota. It makes me laugh, especially the callout at the end.
