I’m also fascinated by le verlan, the slang, invented by French-Arab youth, consisting of simply reversing words, as in Pig Latin, which has caught on in the general French culture. It’s well worth learning because you will hear it everywhere, particularly among younger Parisians of all stripes.

It was first used by French youth of color to not be understood by the police or their parents, and it widely came to France’s attention with the celebrated 1995 banlieue drama La Haine. Since then, it’s often used by white French people just to show they’re cool and chébran, which is verlan for branché, meaning trendy and plugged-in. It’s also constantly evolving and is ubiquitous in French hip-hop.

sounds similar to the way AAVE has been appropriated by non-black people (though of course my knowledge of verlan’s place in the french context is very limited, so I could be wrong).

kitausu a demandé:

so i know you posted this a while ago, but I'm still messaging you with one of those "name 2 fictional characters and i'll tell you which one i would date" except now i can't think of one...I was going to say Obama or MICHELLE Obama but they aren't fictional. Sooooo. Aang or Harry Potter? IDEK I'm sorry this ask is a mess.

"a while ago" it was like, an hour? two? idek time is all relative in the internets

Aang or Harry Potter is kinda no contest for me, bc as much as i like HP i feel atla in my soul so I’d date aang but tbh i’d rather date zuko hah who wouldn’t amirite

i am so glad to see villains that are not just trying to *~conquer the world so they can see my glory~*

the red lotus has no petty revenge plots or misguided quests for power they are acting on an entire established philosophy (based on airbending, no less- which is hard for both korra and the audience to grasp) and it is just so refreshing and interesting to watch

#seriously though#they’re also forcing korra to think critically about her own political and philosophical beliefs#something that has been hard for her to do in the past#and now#she finds her convictions being questioned#and she has to come up with a solid explanation for those convictions#do you know how hard that is to do#she’s a teenager#and she’s always been the kind to fight through her problems physically#the red lotus and other villains in lok have made her fight through them intellectually too#even suyin challenges her way of thinking#and i think that’s awesome#korra became physically capable in book 1#and spiritually capable in book 2#now we see her becoming intellectually and morally and philosophically capable#and i love every second of it [via ricekrispyjoints]

One time when my music theory professor was a student in college, he had to accompany an extremely rude soprano for a recital. She treated him like dirt during rehearsals. Just before going on to perform, she made some really snide remark to him that ticked him off, so he transposed the piece up a half step. She cracked three times.

Always be nice to your accompanists, folks.

There is a special place in hell for people that are rude to their accompanists
