im gonna fuckin throw up
Okay, okay calm down, people.
While you are all losing your mind over ‘cultural appropriation” of an Indian dress, nobody actually consulted THE INDIANS.
In our country, if a foreigner wears an Indian saree, we actually appreciate it. It shows that the foreigner respects us enough to try our clothes. And the saree, mind you, is not a religious thing. Hindus can wear sarees, Muslims can wear sarees, Sikh’s can wear sarees, Jain’s can wear sarees and so on.
Like Americans have short dresses, compare that with sarees. Going to a party? Saree. Going to temple? Saree, and so on.
Some Indians wear it, some don’t. Some hate it and think its oppressing, some love embracing the unique style.
Point is, don’t hate on her for wearing this. Don’t hate on anyone for wearing sarees or any variations of sarees. We love to see others embracing our culture. Why do you think we open our gates to allow everyone to practice yoga and find spiritual meaning?
Culture is not meant to be kept within four walls, it should be spread.
I did not know this. That is really interesting to find out. Thanks for the information.

Never forget that Ami tricked her classmate who couldn’t read English into thinking the lyrics to “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins were important space engineering documents.
I called bullshit. I pulled up the episode.
It’s real. Jesus fucking christ it’s real Kenny Loggins is in Sailor Moon what the actual shit.
I’ve recently found myself with quite a bit of spare time and I’ve got a great RP going with a friend (after a really long hiatus), and… I know that my buddy’s got real life (work, etc) to deal with… I feel like I’m being really clingy, and I know how much I hate it when people message me wanting purely to RP.. I can’t help but want to message them and ask if they’ll be on, even if it’s just to chat, but I don’t want to be an ass.

The sword has a curved, single-edged, concave blade. The silver grip and ring-nut are engraved with floral motifs and have remains of gilding and nielloed frames. The pommel features the typical “ears”.
Isn’t it amazing you can find on Deviantart? :D
Been taking a few more pictures of my cat. Thought I’d share a couple. Excuse the mess. XD I’m on vacation aka the perfect excuse for being lazy.
In other news I tried to watch a quick episode of Gravity Falls before going to bed but gave up because all the videos were laggy. Dang that show seems pretty good what have I been doing?
slkfhls Remind me to give you the link to the site where me and Garth watch it! The videos aren’t too laggy there. :D
My art style is called inconsistent
Okay… That’s it… I think I’m going to set this as my alarm on my phone so I can feel like I’m waking up in heaven on a daily basis.There’s just something about children’s choirs.
There’s just something about this song
Okay, let me tell you a thing about this song. My mother is a nurse in the NICU with small premature babies. and she had one baby that was born addicted to 5 different drugs. Needless to say, the poor baby had to suffer through intense withdrawals, and my mom discovered that this song was incredibly soothing for the baby while he went through all of his pain. She would play this during his rougher patches, and it would calm him down. So yes, there is something about this song.
This song is a mele (soft, metered song with music) in contrast to an oli (a chant), and translated, it’s a song actually for Chief Kalakaua and Cheifess Lili’ulani. It tells of the beautiful scenery of all the islands, and specifically, a beautiful blooming flower that withstands the summits of each significant peak of Hawaii (including Mauna Kea!).
If you contrast the words mele and oli, you will hear them (say them outloud!) how soft, and harsh they are respectively. This mele is comprised of mostly soft, flowing words (save for the name of the mountains!) and the combination of those beautiful words used to name beautiful things and the Children’s Chorus is probably what it is.
Peace(fulness) transcends language.
I desperately want to marry a guy like him
