plot twist: the last episode of pretty little liars is on your tv, the liars come face to face with their tormenter, Spencer raises a gun to the camera which shows her front on aiming at us (the screen).. the gun goes off and all of the sudden the screen goes black. The viewer is dead it turns out we were -A all along… watching them religiously, monitoring their every move spying on them… it was us all along… we are the -A team.
If only the writers were as creative as this…
i trust these girls with my life.
Oh my god I’m gonna die
Well ok Kesha, maybe it’s because you’re an auto tuned peice of shit who shouldn’t be famous, you have no Buisness being in the music industry, it’s not even your music you fuck, someone else wrote it for you to record and them to auto tune yourself. And it’s not at all good . It’s not positive either. So complain some more.
I don’t know if you know this, tumblr user koolkidseatgreens, but Ke$ha is a certified genius. She has an IQ over 140 and an SAT score of 1500. When she was younger she would go to the library and do research for fun. Ke$ha is a both feminist and an advocate for equal marriage/rights for people of any sexuality, being a queer woman herself.
Ke$ha is a smart, professional woman, and just because she sings songs about wanting to let loose and have fun every once in a while doesn’t make her a piece of shit.
Ke$ha’s songs are meant to point out the sexism in our media. She treats men the same way many men in the music industry treat women, and she is hated on for it. Relentlessly. She sings on multiple occasions about taking charge in a sexual relationship, of how she only uses men for their body parts. She sexualizes men to make them uncomfortable. She sexualizes men for a reaction, so that people can both see why women are so uncomfortable with their sexualization and also to point out the inequality between the sexes both in the media and in the world at large.
She is judged so harshly for singing about things that make many men famous.
If you listen to Ke$ha’s deconstructed album you will see that she actually has some talent, which may be hard to hear because she does in fact use a fair amount of autotune. This is because of her genre and because of the kind of music she chooses to create as an artist. Ke$ha may not write her songs, but this doesn’t meant she isn’t a good artist or a good person. This doesn’t mean she deserves your harsh words. Some singers are good at writing, but that’s hardly a requirement. Last time I checked whether or not you can sing has nothing to do with whether or not you’re a poet.
You should not be calling anyone a piece of shit, my friend, especially someone you’ve never sat down and had a conversation (or even taken the time to wonder about her feelings!), but if anyone deserves that kind of language it’s not Ke$ha.
You may think that by shaming women for expressing their sexuality and having fun every once in a while, that you are somehow abolishing sexism. That in weeding out the less ‘deserving’ women you are gaining our sex more respect. This is not the case, and the fact that you and many others feel such a strong need to shame this woman who has done nothing wrong, especially not to you, shows that we still have a very far away to go.
Imagery is one of the first things that budding writers learn to incorporate into their work, and for good reason. Vivid description is vital to bringing a story to life in a reader’s mind. It pulls them into the story, gives them sensory details that makes them feel like they’re right there in the story with the characters. Description can be one of the hallmarks of a great story but, if misused, it can turn into a pitfall.
Before we get into that, though, let’s talk a little bit about what imagery is. Imagery is the use of description and figurative language (like similes, metaphors etc) to enhance a scene. Usually this means building a mood or emotion using show and not tell, letting the reader interpret and feed of clues in the description to build emotion.
Some tips to keep in mind while writing imagery:
- Be frugal. Use adverbs and adjectives sparingly and only when needed. The stronger you can make the verb or self-explanatory you can make the noun the better the piece will be.
- Similes, metaphors, personification and hyperboles can be your best friends (in moderation).
- Try to encompass more than just sight. What can the character smell? Feel? Hear?
- Pay attention to sentence structure. How you construct the scene grammatically can affect how the reader feels it. Long complex sentences slow the reader down while shorter, simpler sentences speed the reader up.
- Don’t be excessive. Ask yourself: is this necessary? Do I need to tell the reader this detail? How does it enhance the mood/emotion/character/plot?
Let’s expand on that last bullet point for a minute, shall we? Overdescription. It’s a surprisingly easy trap to fall into. As budding writers we’re often told to use as much imagery as possible to create a realistic scene (and appear as ‘more professional’ writers), but later we often end up overcompensating. Too much description for the sole sake of description takes away from the story itself. Imagery isn’t some bonus freebie writer point generator. Having a lot of it in a story doesn’t instantly make the story fantastic. Granted, it can help a lot but, like all things in writing (and in life) it’s about really about finding a balance.
Final random parting thought: The addition of imagery often slows down a scene. If you want a prolonged “held breath” kind of effect, more imagery (with more complex sentences) will help drag it out, almost like a slow motion effect. Also it’s great for creating a more dreamlike mood. The inverse is also true - lack of detailed description can add to a fast-paced, quick feel (often useful for fight/action scenes)
