What Harajuku Girls Look Like These Days
New video about modern Japanese decora
fashion by Refinery29! We helped to connect the producers with the Harajuku kids for this video. I’m very happy that they treat the subculture - and the people in it - with respect. We never know how things will turn out when we connect foreign media to Harajuku subcultures, but this one is well done. Please check out the video!

This honestly was such a good watch! It is always a bit scary sometimes when people do informational pieces on fashions like decora because you worry how they are going to perceive it but I can honestly say this was a good piece. It was so nice to see how the japanese decora cuties feel about their fashion and it was also cool that they compared it to how decora originally looked when it began. I guess Im just so glad that decora is a fashion thats still alive and kicking (even if its just in small groups) because its a fashion that makes me so extraordinarily happy. 

A great watch! Brought me back to the FRUiTS livejournal days <3

I work at my university's bookstore and every semester one of the professors teaches 'Fight Club' and it's so exciting to see boxes of it come in and rather disappointed to see people return their rented copied or sell them back. Once I returned a copy and the student wrote the synopsis of each chapter under the heading and I freaked out. My manager said it was in otherwise fine condition so we couldn't charge her but what spoilers. How do you feel about your work being taught ?

That fact that ‘Fight Club’ is being taught seems — to me — to underscore the dearth of novels that explore male issues.  The past years have given us so many books, from ‘The Color Purple’ to ‘The Joy Luck Club’ to ‘How to Make an American Quilt,’ which depict women in groups and relationship, but almost no books depicting social models for men.  That’s my two cents worth.

i am sitting here SCREAMING with laughter 

what world do you live in chuck palahniuk

and how can i live in this world with a dearth of novels that explore male issues

wow

showing this to everyone who tries to argue that palahniuk is being ironic and mocking masculinity and ‘male issues’ in fight club

omggg

I think at least two rules of Fight Club are being broken by this class.

"almost no books depicting social models for men" 

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA

*wipes tears* 

Oh wait, you were serious?

Also. 

Fight Club was published in 1996. 
The Color Purple was published in 1982
Joy Luck Club was published in 1989 
(and note how these are both books about women of color) 

They are not books “the past years” have given us, you IGNORAMUS. THEY WERE PUBLISHED THIRTY YEARS AGO. YOUR BOOK IS MORE CONTEMPORARY THAN THEY ARE. 

*headdesk* 

Translation: “Me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me. I am uncomfortable when we are not about me. Me.

Also, I am so lost in the Manbox, I think dudes beating the crap out of each other qualify as a social model for men.”

West African Teen Taunted With Chants of ‘Ebola’ at High School Soccer Game
West African Teen Taunted With Chants of ‘Ebola’ at High School Soccer Game

One Pennsylvania teen, who is originally from Guinea, recently had to endure his high school rival’s soccer team chanting “Ebola” at him during a match, WPVI reports.

According to the station, Ibrahim Toumkara, a Nazareth Area High School student and soccer player, got into a fight last week after he heard players from rival Northampton High School taunting him about the deadly virus, which has killed more than 4,000 people across West Africa, including in his home country.

"Being from western Africa and having family in that area, he didn’t take too kindly to those remarks and went after one of the players on the Northampton team," the boy’s coach, Edward Bachert, explained. Bachert is also Ibrahim’s legal guardian, as well as a police chief for Lehigh County. 

The 16-year-old moved away from Guinea three years ago, the station notes.

"There were tears coming down his eyes. He was visibly shaken by this, that it got to that level on the field," Bachert added.

Ibrahim’s parents are still in West Africa, and according to WPVI, he is constantly worrying for them.

After the tasteless incident, both Northampton’s head soccer coach and its assistant coach resigned. Some of the student athletes are also expected to face disciplinary action, according to the station.

"This is part of the educational process to make sure that students are understanding sportsmanship and what’s happening out there in the world," Northampton Area Superintendent Joseph Kovalchik said.

Since when is a deadly virus funny? When will African lives not be nothing but a comedic piece to westerners?

I swear to god if people idiotically blame this all on white people despite the fact that it was most likely more than just one race of people.

Out of this entire article, that’s your main concern? That’s what you felt the need to comment on?

To the commenter complaining, “Not all white people.”

To the commenter that called them out on their bullshit.
