ok so before i leave tumblr for the night
let me leave you with this video. karma police from radioheads 1997 album OK computer. the video is directed by jonathan glazer, and i used to be and still am so obsessed with the message of this video & song combo.
the director said this was a failed attempt, and he even won mtvs best director award in 1997 specifically for this. and i like that. even though he didn’t like it he pushed forward and let others decide for better or worse.
like at 3:12 is such a beautiful moment in story telling with no dialogue and no narration, just a really cool turning point of kill or be killed, accompanied by a loop of “for a a minute there, i lost myself”
i dig it a lot.
The Hoenn region boasts many dramatic environments from rain forests to deserts. However, its most striking feature is its abundance of water, a vast contrast to other core series regions, especially Sinnoh. There are several large islands off the mainland only accessible via water routes, many of which are deep enough for diving.
they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it.
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck
