Rami Kadi - Fall Winter 2014 2015

salahmah:

Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, has a rich history, beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful architecture, but what it’s most famous for are the striking and vivid blue walls of many of the buildings in its “old town” sector, or medina.

The maze-like medina sector, like those of most of the other towns in the area, features white-washed buildings with a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture. The brilliantly blue walls, however, seem to be unique to Chefchaouen. They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. The color caught on, and now many also believe that the blue walls serve to repel mosquitoes as well (mosquitoes dislike clear and moving water).

Whatever the reason, the town’s blue walls attract visitors who love to wander the town’s narrow streets and snap some beautiful photos.

So I found this harlequin romance paperback today, and normally I just toss those right over without paying them much mind, but the cover of this one made me pause. Sure that the artist was just taking liberties, I checked out the back.

I’m dubious. I should read a passage:

It is a literal bear.
Okay yeah I’ll admit it I’m going to read this but only because it sounds like the most fucked up romance novel in existence.
But wait….

You have some explaining to do, Canada.

You guys don’t understand. Screw it being a bestseller, 50 Shades of Gray is a bestseller, this book won the Governor General’s Award. That’s the highest literary award in Canada. That’s the pulitzer prize of Canadian literature. Bear is a part of Canadian literary history.

hey tumblr! I’m doing research on women who were catalysts for change. Good change, bad change, large or small scale. Think Anne Boleyn and the English Reformation, Rosa Parks, etc - actions/inactions with results that snowballed.  

I’m just starting this project and my knowledge isn’t vast so if you feel like sharing your cool fave lady or some interesting lists or essays with me that would be great!

Is that your dad? Shit.

In the Flesh is a BAFTA award winning BBC supernatural drama series in the same vein as Being Human and The Fades. It depicts life in the fictional English village of Roarton after “The Rising”, with a medication that returns consciousness to the undead having been found before the events of the show. It stars Luke Newberry as Kieren Walker, an 18-year-old bisexual/pansexual PDS (“Partially Deceased Syndrome”) sufferer who returns home to extreme prejudice from the conservative townsfolk and alienation from his sister, who - during The Rising - was part of a militia dedicated to hunting down his kind.

BBC recently revealed that BBC3 will be closed down as a TV channel in 2015 and moved completely online. This, sadly, puts the future of this brilliant show in jeopardy. The fandom for this show is small, but devoted and geared up to show their support in any way possible. But it’s not enough. More people should be watching this show - this beautiful, intelligent, revolutionary show. It has many elements of the pieces of media that often drag the vast majority of this website in and it hasn’t quite achieved that yet… Notice that I say “yet”. 

There has already been a list of links to watch the show on tumblr, but the links are outdated and don’t include BBC iPlayer - which is the best way to watch the show as it contributes ratings. Luckily I have a butt load of time and a desperate need to get other people into this show (like, “break into your house and force you to watch it” desperate):

Series One
Episode One: Stream | Torrent
Episode Two: Stream | Torrent
Episode Three: Stream | Torrent

Series Two

Episode One: BBC iPlayer | Stream | Torrent
Episode Two: BBC iPlayer | Stream | Torrent
Episode Three: BBC iPlayer | Stream | Torrent
Episode Four: BBC iPlayer | Stream | Torrent
Episode Five: BBC iPlayer | Stream | Torrent
Episode Six: BBC iPlayer | Stream | Torrent

Series one isn’t available on BBC iPlayer anymore and episode six of series two airs on Sunday the 8th of June at 10pm UK time. If you live outside the UK and would like to watch the show on BBC iPlayer, you can use extensions such as Hola.

You can also help by using the hashtags #intheflesh and #saveintheflesh over on twitter and following the cast and creatives to show your appreciation - Luke Newberry, Emmett Scanlan, Dominic Mitchell, Emily Bevan, Harriet Cains, Kev Sutton, Marie Critchley, Alice Troughton, Damon Thomas, Dale McCready
