Blackberries and tangerines

Mag. 28. Italian. Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Buffy, Supernatural, Fringe, Community, House, Legend of the Seeker, How I met your mother, The Big Bang Theory, Misfits, Skins, Modern Family, Spartacus, Happy Endings and many more. Disney movies, Pixar movies, LOTR, Harry Potter and, yeah, many more. Photography, Graphics, DIY. Sometimes music (listen to: all the time; post here: just sometimes ;D). Rarely personal. Often funny. Hopefully interesting.


Solitary figures wander through vast, dreamlike worlds in artist Kasia Derwinska's striking images. Derwinska combines photography and digital manipulation to create surreal works of art that seem to act as metaphors for life, expressing themes like loneliness, isolation, separation, reflection, and joy as each figure contemplates their paths in life.

"What would I give for a playboy who couldn’t keep it in his pants, and who runs through women? What I have is a son who shows no interest in them. What you do at night with your boys, after your show of skirt-chasing, is a disgrace."

The stereotype thingy... People usually say that italians talk a lot with their hands. Does this apply to you? :-D

This is an interesting question and also a bit hard to answer from an insider point of view :D
Compared to other people I know, I don’t use my hands THAT much. And there was a time in my life (I think while I was studying psychology in high school) when I actually tried to control my hand movements (mostly by resting my hands on my legs or on each other while I was speaking) because I didn’t like the idea that the person I was talking to could “read” my movements.
But then, when I was working in summer school, there was this kid that was really good at impressions, and she did this impression of me while talking to parents and I did move my hands in a particular fashion while I did that (especially with parents that didn’t speak italian as L1, but not just). And my friends tease me because when I’m taking an exam and I’m speaking of something I’m passionate about I do “le manine della felicità” (the little hands of happiness).
Also my friend who has studied sign language tried to build a “Maddalena sign language” using the gestures I make while I talk of certain things.

So, in the end… I guess I do talk with my hands quite a lot, but since if there is one stereotype that is mostly true about Italians is this one, and so there are many people who do that A LOT more than I do :)



For the rebloggers: Make sure to put your country’s name in the tags UvU

You know that scene in Pretty Woman when Julia Roberts walks into that store and she leaves feeling awful and terrible and dehumanized and shit?

That’s kinda what it’s like being a plus sized girl walking into 93% of the trendy clothes stores in any city.
