John Legend - You & I (Nobody In The World)

They are young and old, cis and trans, straight and queer, in sickness and in health, and they come in countless colors, shapes, and sizes. They are women, and for four minutes and 15 seconds, John Legend pays them the basic respect that half the world’s population is routinely denied. 

It is not a revolutionary video — at least, it shouldn’t be. Deceptively simple in form and function, You & I uses only a progression of medium shots of individual women. Presented with their totality, the differences fade away, and we are left with the fact that before anything else, women are simply and unignorably people.

That this is hailed as a radical political statement shows the sad state of our culture. But it makes such simple statements all the more important to make. 

Don’t Starve announced their figurines recently. I picked up 8 blind boxes and was pleased to see the selection. The sculpts and paint work are impressive—though the massive heads on most of the figures inhibit their ability to stand. The amount of detail in the mandrake and rabbit are fantastic. Chester actually has a hinge, so the mouth opens and shuts (to hold goodies as the character is intended). They even took the effort to include gloss on Chester’s tongue.

I don’t always spring for vinyl toys, and these did not disappoint. Of the eight pulled, only received one duplicate figure and two duplicate accessories, which, if you’re at all familiar with blind boxes, is a great score.

As a side note, I’m excited about Don’t Starve Together. Beautiful work!

Hey guys, pictured above is the captain of my team, Pirate-I-Tude.She was just recently diagnosed with breast cancer and we are trying our hardest to help raise money for her treatment. This is a link to the GoFundMe page our co-captain created. Pirate is a 7th grade history teacher and has such a genuine love for what she does, she is always helpful, caring, and has been a wonderful leader, and I want us to be able to repay her for what she’s done and is continuing to do. If you’re able to donate to the cause we would be forever grateful, and I’m sure she would be, too. If not, a signal boost would be very appreciated! Derby love <3

Re blogging for the night crowd- thanks for all of the signal boosts on this!
