Contemporary Art Week!

Tamara Natalie Madden

Madden lists among influences Gustav Klimt and images of Egyptian royalty. You can view many, many more images of her work here at her official website.

I find these breathtaking acrylic and mixed media paintings evocative of both the Fayum Mummy Portraits and early medieval icons featuring the Black Madonna.

  1. You are stronger than you realise.
  2. You are crueller than you realise.
  3. The smallest words will break your heart.
  4. You will change. You’re not the same person you were three years ago. You’re not even the same person you were three minutes ago and that’s okay. Especially if you don’t like the person you were three minutes ago.
  5. People come and go. Some are cigarette breaks, others are forest fires.
  6. You won’t like your name until you hear someone say it in their sleep.
  7. You’ll forget your email password but ten years from now you’ll still remember the number of steps up to his flat.
  8. You don’t have to open the curtains if you don’t want to.
  9. Never stop yourself texting someone. If you love them at 4 a.m., tell them. If you still love them at 9.30 a.m., tell them again.
  10. Make sure you have a safe place. Whether it’s the kitchen floor or the Travel section of a bookshop, just make sure you have a safe place.
  11. You will be scared of all kinds of things, of spiders and clowns and eating alone, but your biggest fear will be that people will see you the way you see yourself.
  12. Sometimes, looking at someone will be like looking into the sun. Sometimes someone will look at you like you are the sun. Wait for it.
  13. You will learn how to sleep alone, how to avoid the cold corners but still fill a bed.
  14. Always be friends with the broken people. They know how to survive.
  15. You can love someone and hate them, all at once. You can miss them so much you ache but still ignore your phone when they call.
  16. You are good at something, whether it’s making someone laugh or remembering their birthday. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that these things don’t matter.
  17. You will always be hungry for love. Always. Even when someone is asleep next to you you’ll envy the pillow touching their cheek and the sheet hiding their skin.
  18. Loneliness is nothing to do with how many people are around you but how many of them understand you.
  19. People say I love you all the time. Even when they say, ‘Why didn’t you call me back?’ or ‘He’s an asshole.’ Make sure you’re listening.
  20. You will be okay.
  21. You will be okay.

Dear Zico,

When I see you in DC you will get the biggest amount of shade from moi. You may be my bias but you sir are in the doghouse right now. What is with people? Too busy arguing about loof and never caring about this type of shit. “It’s a talent/hobby to talk like (insert race)”

No. Stop that. It’s not fucking funny. It’s not cool. And yes. He meant it.

Woo Jiho, I am mad at you…..our bias/fan relationship is not “very very good” and I’m seeing you slip up too much for my fangirl health. *sigh*

In other news, how’s everything going with Sewol? I hope they find more people soon. Maybe inside some air pockets. I heard that was possible.

Yeah zico is crazy but I have mixed feeling about it because that was a bad impression by the way. I am black and I was like lol we don’t say that he he he he. At first I was really pissed off that he did that I was like that was so uncalled for and horrible. But the funny thing about zico is that he is just really stupid lol. I believe he really didn’t mean to be mean. Zico does impersonations of a lot of people. Whoever believes that talking black is a talent may not be the smartest person in the world. Don’t get me wrong it’s horrible to do but I impersonate different races to sometimes he he he. Yeah we all need jesus. Lol and his zico got higher when he did the impression.

basically he just looked like a fool.

it may not be correct and may offend some but a lot of people immitate different races in a stereotypical manner. Do I think he beleives every black. person speaks that way no. He is probably regretful it had such a negative effect but as of most of Block B he didnt think first he just acted natural.

Nah it’s just straight up not okay. Whether he meant it to be bad or not. No one who does this with any race is okay. It’s damaging and we are already stereotyped enough as it is. I’m from the south I don’t need any more of this bs from him or from anybody because I know what it’s like to have it used to be a joke about me. Or to be one of the only black kids in a class and deal with this sort of stuff. And then people laugh or devalue how annoying and rude it actually is. Nope, he may not have been thinking but certain things will not be excusable.

:/

Eh, I don’t like when people be like “black girls watch out cause white girls getting booty these days” cause to a black girl’s ears it kinda sounds like “watch out because your only value is your fetishized body and once that’s gone you’ll truly be worthless”

Smh too true
