When I was a kid we had this cheap piece of shit CD player that was so screwy that when it messed up instead of saying ERROR its screen read EERRR. That’s about the best metaphor I can think of for how my mental state has been lately-there’s been an EERRR.

That’s great. The metaphor/story.  Not your mental state, to which I can only offer my sympathies.

Lupita Nyong’o For Marie Claire Magazine

On how she feels about all the attention surrounding her beauty
Being called gorgeous is not a bad thing! But at the same time, I don’t want to thrive on people’s opinions of me.

On fashion and style
I wasn’t a follower of fashion. It was a world unknown. Then I met my stylist, Micaela Erlanger [introduced to her by friend and Non-Stop co star Michelle Dockery], and we came to interpret my style: clean lines, strong color. I don’t dress to impress; I don’t feel that pressure.

On waiting to win or lose at award shows
wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s an internally loud moment. It’s not even about the outcome; it’s about the agony of the unknown. It’s like waiting for test results in a hospital.

On one of her favorite famous moments
I met Sidney Poitier, who has been someone I’ve looked up to and a blessing from afar. It was an incredible thing and something that I hold very dear to my heart.

fuck yeah lupita

Social Skills or Stereotypes? What My Autism Classes Didn't Teach Me

Relevant to my continually-work-in-progress theories of how men are cast as autistics by default in relation to women as emotional/social beings.

“Effort to protect farmworkers from sexual assault is gaining momentum…” | Coalition of Immokalee Workers


“The Fair Food Program is a transformative, model program…”

study conducted in 2010 found that 80% of farmworker women report that they have experienced sexual harassment on the job.  That number is incomprehensible, until you stop to think of the immense imbalance of power between workers and their employers that defines most farm labor jobs.  The near total dependence of many farmworkers on their bosses — for everything from employment to, in many cases, housing, transportation, and, in the case of guest workers, even their right to live and work in the country — is the kind of relationship that lends itself to abuse.  As a result, sexual harassment in the fields is effectively endemic, and has been for decades. …

Front Cover: Star Wars/Star Trek And The 21st Century Christians

Published in 1978 (and primarily focused on Star Wars despite Spock and the Enterprise featuring prominently on the cover), this book was published by Bible Voice in an effort to get the youth of America interested in what Jesus has to offer. New Zealander Winkie Pratney’s…odd phrasing throughout is summed up wonderfully by the back cover blurb:

"Trust the Force, Luke!"
Wouldn’t it be wonderful
If there really was a Force?
Something of great and awesome power
Available to anyone anywhere at any time!
Who would pay the price to learn of its ways and surrender to its direction?
Long, long ago, of a galaxy not far away,
It was written
“The Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by Force”
Will you dare to lay aside your limits
And trust your life and destiny to the wisdom that holds together the stars?
“May the Force be with you.”
