i discover so much amazing art and music thanks to lookuplookup. this is amazing.
Auto Tammy Rae Carland reblog, one of my absolute favorites of her work. I love how consistently articulate she is about the sexual economies of art & sustaining a queer female identification.
Kathleens’ opener; "This is a new song. This is a song about really being in love with somebody, and then they wrote a fanzine about fucking you".
- Wow, people are jerks. She went through such EPIC shit to get her art out there. Radical contradiction, kill the thing you love.
- Anyhow, Katheleen Hanna is awesome art love. That is all.

Past the billboards and the magazines
I dream about being with you
We can’t hear a word they say
Let’s pretend we own the world today
I know it’s cold outside
But when we’re together I got nothing to hide
Hold on tight I will never let you down
It can’t rain on our side of town
Wipe the sweat from my hair
Tell me we’re not better off
Wipe the tears from my face
The sunny side of the street where we are
The series consists of color photographs that are staged domestic scenes of a girlfriend and Carland conceptualized in the vain of contemporary documentary photography with a strong cinematic influence. These photographs are a detailed investigation of domestic moments; they are an invitation for a public to step into the private space of home, they are an invitation to look. The photographs are meant to evoke ideas of simply being enmeshed in the monotony of everyday life, of being regular, normal and even boring. Keeping House is intended to create a dialogue on the lack of images about gay and lesbian home life and the expectations placed on queer artists to create a sensation or titillating presence.
"There was a time when I was sleeping on the couch of my aunt who was dying of cancer. Then she died and I didn’t have anywhere to go. How can you do your homework when that’s happening? My teacher took some pity on me… But the whole point of me rambling about that is, I said to my teacher, ‘I can’t be a singer because I’m not pretty enough and I’m fat.’ And she looked at me and said, "Tell that to Nell Carter, babe.’ That changed my life forever!”
fuck yeah, kathleen hanna!win aesthetic
"Resistance is everywhere, it always has been and always will be. Just because someone is not resisting in the same way you are (being a vegan, an ‘out’ lesbian, a political organizer) does not mean they are not resisting. Being told you are a worthless piece of shit and not believing it is a form of resistance.
One girl calling another girl to warn her about a guy who date raped her, is another. And while she may look like a big haired makeup girl who goes out with jocks, she is a soldier along with every other girl, and even though she may not be fighting in the same loud way that some of us can (and do) it is the fact that she is resisting that connects us, puts a piece together.
Jigsaw Youth, I don’t know what this means to anyone… only what it means to me. Standing proud and saying “I don’t know who I am, I wanna know more, I am not afraid to say things matter to me.”
