This what some of you guys missed when watching the Anaconda video by Nicki Minaj


First and most: I actually like Nicki Minaj more than I don’t. Her verse on “Monster” is actually immortal. She’s fierce as hell and her take on femme is pretty rad.Second: I’ll apologize in advance for getting argumentative, I just hadn’t bothered to get down my thoughts on Anaconda so you’re getting an earful. Feel free to skip it and I won’t be offended.That said: not hot on Anaconda, which struck me as, like, loud/annoying Feminist Novelty Pop. ( I had not heard “all about that bass” at the time, which is even more so ) Also, I think the tropes might’ve been around long enough that we can start setting a higher bar for “she’s sexualizing /herself/ as a commentary” or “she’s using it as a weapon of resistance” or “its subversive because ~weaponized femme~” than we have. If we start demanding more, there, I suspect anaconda falls short…

The Horned Helmet of Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I, 1514.

Why.

Why the fuck not?

Because that is the face of someone who is always already jacking it behind some bushes like an awful, nebbishy satyr.

Congratulations. Like Paul before you, you have effected the mystical union of the Jewish and the Hellenic. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female, for ye are all one in awful, nebbishy satyrs.

Reboggling so all two of you can see this sweet, dumb religion joke.

I could live in the poetics of how this man smashes things.

I am way not in the right mind to analyze this further, but there’s something in the light bulb and synthesizer pieces that really reminds me of Satoshi Kon’s work, especially the opening of Paranoia Agent.

The light bulb recalls how often the apparent substance of things betrays characters in, say, Paprika. Vaulting over a railing only to have the whole world turn to cloth, etc.

The pose and composition on the synth pretty directly recall the PA opening, though, you’re right.

A reminder:

Never feel guilty because you have been unable to do something you’re supposed to do, and then you find something you wanna do and you hyperfocus on it for hours. That’s how our brains work. It’s not you being lazy, or trying to skip out on something. That’s how we’re wired.

You probably already know this, but it’s nice to be reminded.

literally me right now and angry enough about it that it’s getting in the way.

I HAVE NOT LIVED IN VAIN

I hear it’s amazing when the famous purple stuffed Wolf in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on hari-kari rock. I need scissors! 61!

A summit has been reached.
