"Para Selma: Todo grande amor se leva a sério, se acha diferente, ameaça a saúde. Mas ainda que destinos felizes e tragédias já tenham sido tantas vezes contados em livros, a gente apenas tropeça por acaso em coisas reais. Talvez tenha acontecido um enganos nos cálculos antecipatórios…

Tomar uma coca-cola com você é ainda melhor do que uma viagem a San Sebastian, Irun, Hendaye, Biarritz, Bayonne ou que ficar enjoado na Travessera de Gracia em Barcelona. Em parte porquê nessa camisa laranja você parece um São Sebastião melhor e mais feliz. Em parte porque eu gosto tanto de você. Em parte porquê você gosta tanto de iogurte. Em parte por causa das tulipas laranja fluorescente contra a casca branca das árvores. Em parte pelo segredo que nos vem ao sorriso perto de gente e de estatuária.

É difícil quando estou com você acreditar que existe alguma coisa tão parada, tão solene, tão desagradável e definitiva como estatuária. Quando bem na frente delas na luz quente de Nova York, às quatro da tarde, nós estamos indo e vindo de um lado para o outro como a árvore, respirando pelos olhos de seus nós e a exposição de retratos parece não ter nenhum rosto, só tinta de repente você se surpreende que alguém tenha se dado ao trabalho de pintá-los.

Olho pra você e prefiro de longe olhar para você do que para todos os retratos do mundo, exceto talvez às vezes o Cavaleiro Polonês, que de qualquer maneira está no Frick aonde, graças a Deus, você nunca foi de modo que eu posso ir junto com você a primeira vez. E isso de você se mover tão bonito mais ou menos dá conta do futurismo, assim como em casa nunca penso no Nu Descendo a Escada ou num ensaio em algum desenho de Leonardo ou Michelangelo que costumava me deslumbrar e o que adianta aos Impressionistas tanta pesquisa. Quando eles nunca encontraram a pessoa certa para ficar perto de uma árvore quando o sol baixava ou por sinal Marino Marini que não escolheu o cavaleiro tão bem quanto o cavalo.

Acho que eles todos deixaram de ter uma experiência maravilhosa que eu não vou desperdiçar por isso estou te contando.

Este é mais um episódio tedioso, porém com o final diferente. Sim, caminhava sozinho novamente na noite após a jornada diária. Às vezes queria entender a obsessão humana, de sanar essa órbita solitária em que vivemos. A mania de esperar sempre o melhor, de idealizar o conto de fadas condicionado…

Lady Comics: Who Needs Late Night? We’ve Got Tumblr
If you ask a female comedian how social media has impacted her professional life, she will likely respond like Elaine Carroll. “Social media has made my career,” says Carroll, the 30-year-old creator of the Very Mary Kate web series, a spoof of Mary Kate Olsen’s glam life in New York.
Remember just a few years back, when comedians (of any gender) relentlessly chased guest spots at the feet of David Letterman and Jay Leno? Getting a gig on late night was the ultimate career boost, but women comedians had to fight through the prejudices both professional (like infamously misogynist Letterman booker Eddie Brill) and cultural (let’s all try to forget that Christopher Hitchens essay).
But the level playing field of Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr means no one gets between ambitious talent and a potentially receptive audience. All it takes is perseverance, ability, skill, and infinite patience.
“Social media has essentially become my career,” says Kate Spencer, an improv instructor and writer at VH1 who blogs on Tumblr.
Consider Ilana Glazer, a New York comedy writer who, when she and writing partner Abbi Jacobson didn’t make it into the improv groups they wanted at Upright Citizens Brigade, decided to take their brand of girl-centric comedy to the web.
“We said, ‘Eff this, we’re going to make material for ourselves,’” enthuses Glazer, the co-creator of the Broad City web series.That was 2009. The duo now have a deal with FX.
“In the old days, if you got a spot on Carson, your life changed forever,” says Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show, who blogs at the Huffington Post. “That’s not true anymore. Do we even need those shows? I don’t think we do.”
Women still represent just a fraction of writers on late-night comedy programs, and they only represent 8 percent of directors of Hollywood films. Any female comic knows the comedy industry is rife with sexism.
But social media has opened up ways around these traditional paths. A sampling of a dozen women comedians offered up Tumblr and Twitter presences that have become huge in the comedy world — not just as side gigs, but as major marketing tools for these ladies’ work.
“Social media has done the same thing for women comedians as it’s done for other movements — it’s given women a way to know they’re not alone,” says Asie Mohtarez, a New York comedian and blogger. “What it does for me is provide daily evidence of women doing it — making weird/crude jokes (gasp), videos, and other content, which I find inspiring and freeing.”
There are plenty of other examples. Late Night’s Amy Ozols and Chelsea Lately’s Jen Kirkman have become social media standard-bearers in the comedy world, getting credit for their work in the public sphere. Last year, when The Office’s Mindy Kaling set out to promote her book, she used Tumblr to do it. And Whitney Cummings combined social media and dirty jokes about Bob Saget to get a prime-time show on NBC.
But for up-and-coming comics, those outlets can be even more important. “On the internet, no one can limit you, ” Glazer says. For her, that meant constant positive reinforcement of her work, and eventually, a mainstream gig.
She joined the likes of author Mariam Kobras, who used her Twitter following to land a book deal she said had “no agent interference, no rejections, no waiting. Or Allie Hagan, a Washington consultant by day and comedian by night, who turned her Suri’s Burn Book Tumblr into a publishing contract.
“I’ve gotten several freelance gigs based on Twitter and Tumblr, and I think that’s how a lot of people find me for live stuff,” says Julieanne Smolinski, a columnist for XOJane.com. “I’ve done a couple storytelling shows and some podcasts. I am also willing to do quinceañeras and that thing where you go to high schools and tell people not to be like you.”
And, of course, Elaine Carroll of Very Mary Kate, who got a deal with College Humor after producing the series out of pocket. And then got cast on Mad Men. ”There will always be hecklers and Youtube commenter types,” Carroll says of doing comedy on the web. “But the process of something going viral is contingent on it being good. It isn’t based on gender or race or sexual orientation. If your idea is good enough (or weird enough, or contains enough cats jumping into boxes), it won’t be ignored — even if you’re a female lesbian lady woman.”
As Mohtarez puts it: “My Tumblr has helped me hone my odd and sometimes dark sense of humor, and to find a little audience for it in between reblogged photos of other people’s breakfasts and titties.”

Oh, vamos lá. Isso é o que eles sempre dizem, Jeff
Quem? Os pedófilos! ‘Oh, ela era tão sensual. Ela queria aquilo . ‘“Aaah Ela é tecnicamente uma menina pois agia como uma mulher.” É tão fácil culpar uma criança, não é?! Só porque uma garota sabe imitar uma mulher, não significa que ela está pronta para fazer o que uma mulher faz… Quer dizer,o adulto aqui é você. Se uma criança está experimentando e diz algo provocante, você ignora, você não encoraja! Se a criança fala: ‘Ei, vamos fazer umas bebidas! Você leva o álcool embora, e não encoraja ela a tomar uma bebida!

não sei princesa, mas o "livrinho" esta passando em todas as escolas do meu município não sei quando eu ou pegar kakaka mais enfim... se eu conseguir pegar eu te mostro!

Obrigada, eu acho, sei la…

Anonymous

na minha escola era pra escrever uma história sobre "abuso infantil" e etc, pesquisei no tumblr e encontrei tua história, copiei ela e mostrei para minha professora de português, ela amou a história e fizeram um livro da sua história e expôs na minha escola, só que eu mudei o teu nome e não coloquei o nome do seu tumblr. fico grata a ti, princesa!

Wooow, eu não sei exatamente como reagir a isso =O
Contei a minha historia só pra desabafar, não esperava que alguem realmente lesse.
Tem como eu ver o livro? Acho que seria interessante ver.
