Grimes



Just stumbled across this promo vid on the Oyster blog and thought it was pretty cool. I think I'm going to judge all awkward situations on a "scale from 1 to Larry David" from now on. Haha.

That also lead me to this tumblr post that Grimes wrote entitled "I don't want to have to compromise my morals in order to make a living". 

This post really struck a chord with me.
I think it was particularly the parts where she talks about, her desire to be treated as an equal being interpreted as a hatred of men, rather than just a request to be included and respected. 
Also how she is tired of being considered vapid for liking pop music or caring about fashion as if these things inherently lack substance or as if the things she enjoys somehow make her a lesser person. 

I myself have felt like liking pop music and fashion was maybe a little too vapid and shallow and I needed to grow up and start being interested in things with more substance. 
Don't get me wrong, I do have other interests, but at the end of the day these are just things that I like, and I should just enjoy them because that is what makes me happy. 

She is great. I love that she has an opinion and the confidence to express it. More young girls should.
