Tuesday Tumblr Collection

Clever Manka, · Categories: Tuesday Tumblr

This week’s Tumblr collection is a short one. I’ve been saving up for this one for a while, but I was motivated to post it sooner rather than later due to some weekend news coming out of Hungary. Tuesday, November 7: Romani.

clevermankaI’ve posted a weekly themed collection on my Tumblr nearly every week since October, 2011. Someday I’ll compile a list of them, with links to the dates. That day is not today.

    Oh My Dogs, humans confining humans in camps. I imagined this in a panic a year ago, but quickly reined in my imagination. I criticized myself for being reactionary, overly dramatic and misanthropic. And now it's happening. Or has it always been happening, just more subtly? I think so. Fuck.

    I'll have to check this put when I get home but had to say, those barrel turns are just out of this world. I love that film.

      See if you can find a way to watch the documentary. Some bellydance buddies and I managed to see it when it was in theaters (it played at one in Kansas City) and it was beautiful and tragic and overall amazing.

      She turns FOREVER. Here's a clip of that part. The kid singing is amazeballs, too. He looks about 13 and I would listen to an entire CD of him.

      Oops! NVM I just re-read your comment and you've already seen it. ISN'T IT INCREDIBLE? I remember holding back tears during it, which was the first time I'd ever experienced that during a documentary.

    Ohhhh heeeyyyy I just learned some new ways I've unwittingly been an asshole. Sorry, world. Correcting course now. Thank you for this info, Manka.

      You're welcome! Yeah, I had no idea of a lot of this stuff, even pretty recently. Ugh, the years I riffed on American Tribal style dance costuming and drew on the facial tattoos and stuff. *cringe*
