Metapost: Blog Note

15 Apr

Posting is going to be fairly light for a little while. I’m having the “oh, shit. Finals!” sensation on top of actually having a social life (no wai!), so it’s safe to say I’m a bit frazzled right now.

While you wait for my astounding brilliance to return to the internet, enjoy this video of Susan Boyle singing the shit out of Fantine’s “I Dreamed a Dream.” As fillyjonk said,

Folks, we are all Susan Boyle. Fat or thin, pretty or plain, butch or femme, old or young, abled or not: people will judge us and find us wanting. You can posture all you want, out of genuine confidence or bravado; you can insist that the ideals are wrong, that the goalposts need to be moved, that rational humans can shake off the shackles of cultural expectation.
