i made this shitty quick powerpoint about why you should read and/or watch novala takemotos kamikaze girls because like nobody has read and watched kamikaze girls and its incredible. you should be reading this book or watching the movie. or both. theyre both great. seriously.

you can actually watch the movie (in six parts, this is like the best one on the internet sorry) right here now you have a link and no excuse please please please watch kamikaze girls!! 

Shimotsuma Monogatari is something all lolita should watch and read. It’s great advice and life lessons are really wonderful.

So raise a glass to teenage girls for their linguistic innovation. It expands our expressive vocabulary, giving us new words and modes of expression. Speakers may nostalgically look to a previous golden era of English, but the truth is that Shakespeare’s English is an abomination of Chaucer’s English, which is an abomination of Beowolf’s. Language is inherently unstable. It’s in a constant state of flux, made and remade—stretched, altered, broken down and rearranged—by its speakers every day. Rather than a sign of corruption and disorder, this is language in its full vitality—a living, evolving organism.

This is a book store called El Ateneo in Buenos Aires, Argentina! You can have coffee while sitting on the stage. One of my favorite places in my city.
