Step One: Become Emma Watson.


Bey and Jay first shouted each other at the 2004 VMAs when there was still speculation whether they were dating or not. Then here we are 10 years later. It took 10 years to build up to one of the most beautiful moments in the history of award shows.

The fantastic irony is that this moment occured also at the VMAs where Jay presented the Michael Jackson Vanguard award to Beyoncé this time as Husband and Wife along with their beautiful child Blue Ivy Carter.



the idea of harry potter not only straddling two worlds between him (the british wizarding world and the british muggle world) but also being met at each end by two entirely different systems of historical dehumanization/subjugation (with harry on one hand being a half-blood in a society built on blood pedigree and on the other hand being black mixed-race in a society built on white supremacy) is at once extremely tragic and extremely compelling narratively

it’s also interesting that either status has a completely negligible effect within the opposite world (i.e. harry’s blood status means nothing in muggle britain and his race means nothing in wizarding britain)

mixed-race harry continues to rise to the top as the most narratively compelling interpretation of the text


Edinburgh, Scotland

❝ I saw a TV preacher when I was scared at four or five about bad dreams, who promised he’d say a prayer if I put my hand to the TV. That’s the first time I remember prayer. An electric current humming through me, you call me a singer, but I’m called to transform, to suck up the grief, anxiety and loss of those who hear me into my song’s form. I’m a vessel for all that isn’t right, for breakups and lies and double cross. I sing into that vessel a healing light. To let go of the pain that people can’t bear. I don’t do that to myself, I call in the light. I summon God to take me there. Uptopias, they don’t much interest me. I always mess things up a bit. It’s chaos in part that helps us see, but for my daughter I dream a day when no one roots for others to fail, when we all mean what we say. ❞
