Laverne Cox in the music video for "You & I" by John Legend
Side note: This video is beautiful and wonderful and I cried
This is legit so beautiful. Like. Future wedding song right here I stg
she has an incredible amount of sexual lure about her and it’s mesmerzing
Please watch this music video. Oh my God. The diversity is so amazing and refreshing. They include almost if not every race. They have a woman with vitiligo. They have lesbians. It has body diversity. It shows women’s breasts and bodies in an unsexualized way. There’s a little girl with downs syndrome. AND LAVERNE. ONE SHE’S SO FUCKING STUNNING EVEN WITHOUT MAKEUP BUT OH MY GOD A TRANS WOMEN. THE REPRESENTATION. My favorite part though, besides all of the different women, was probably the way they were portayed. We see them putting on makeup, we see them taking it off. We see women on their wedding days, we see women with their children. We see women sick. We see little and young girls, too. We see women in suits being powerful. We see women going to job interviews and at school. We see women graduating from college. We see women crying. We see women laughing. We see women showering and at unflattering angles and we see women exercising and kissing their partners and we see women as something we hardly ever, ever see in the mainstream media… People. We see realistic women doing things that women do and it’s just so beautiful and refreshing.
This might go without saying, but do not read the comments on this video. I was hoping (I know, silly me) that they would be positive, but there are more than a few men in there who feel the need to remind women of what they personally find attractive and how horrified they are that women exist who don’t meet their criteria of beauty (or womanhood).
But the video is marvelous and you should watch it. cw for a little blood near the end.
so I normally don’t like the music that comes with ‘really inclusive music videos’ because they’re just not my thing. But fuck not only is the video wonderful but the song is FANTASTIC.
Also jfc I just had to pause the video and look the fuck away when Laverne came on screen because I couldn’t handle how fucking beautiful she was I just got so fucking sajdak

wild; untamed; feral; unsubdued.

My latest Project （ ＾ω＾）
I made a new door for the electric compartment of my lathe :)
There was no real reason to make a new door as the old one was not bad either but I wanted to paint it and having an even surface makes this a lot easier :D
You can see the old door at the bottom ;)
Because plywood doesn’t move too much I made the panel a structural part of the door :)
It is quite strong despite being light weight (^-^)
I guess most people would prefer this door to the new plywood door but it never felt like a suitable door for a lathe to me (^-^;) I will keep it and use it for something else at some point :)
I made the old door from scrap material which is why it is divided by a piece of pine :) I had to stitch 2 plywood panels together to form one of a suitable size (^-^)
I really like it but it is a delicate door and I wanted something that could take a beating which is why the new one is made from 12 mm thick birch plywood and has a good coat of paint and clear finish on it :)
I think the wave and Fuji-san turned out well ヽ(=^･ω･^=)丿
The panels on the back are intended to prevent oil stains on the white wall behind it and have a thick coat of clear finish on top of the painted Fuji-san on them :)
I’m not sure if this splash guard will stand the test of time but I hope it will as I like the way it looks :D
I used the photo of a のれん (a kind of an advertisement cloth :) from a book about the use of images of Fuji-san on Japanese items and advertisements :)
I got this book as a gift from the owner of an Udon restaurant in Fujiyoshida (^-^)
I want to add a lamp to the lathe as the room is illuminated by a neon tube which has the interesting effect that at 1500 rpm (50 Hz mains frequency ;) the spindle will look like it is standing still :D
You can hear that the motor is running but you cannot see it… this is a little dangerous… I got a halogen light along wight he machine and I will mount it to the machine :) I rarely go over 1300 rpm thou :D
A short update on the hedgehog that I mentioned in one of my earlier posts :)
We found out that the hedgehog is a she and that she has at least 4 baby hedgehogs with her (so cute x3
Also she built her nest close to the patio on my parents house ヽ(=^･ω･^=)丿
My father ordered some hedgehog food to help them gain weight for the winter
Usually they like minced meat and other meaty things like cat food :)
Basically you can feed them like cats :D
Please forgive me for not taking photos of the hedgehog family but I don’t want to stress them out :) I will add photos from a distance when I know that I’m not making them feel uncomfortable ;)
I wish everyone a great time and hedgehogs or echidna which are cute as well
