'2014 Tumblr vibe': Benjamin Kheng's old photos in skinny jeans have us all reminiscing

PUBLISHED ONJune 06, 2023 11:36 AMByDrima ChakrabortyIt may have been a decade since the 2010s, but Benjamin Kheng is here to take us on a trip down memory lane. In a recent Instagram video on Monday (June 5), the singer-songwriter shared: "When you throw away all your skinny jeans but you can't throw away the past." He appears to take off his sunglasses and puts his hand to his mouth, overcome with emotion, as sombre piano music plays in the background. This is followed by a bass drop in the music and a bombardment of photos from days past of Benjamin wearing skinny jeans. It's just a shame the background music wasn't My Chemical Romance's Welcome to the Black Parade to match the emo aesthetic. "It's giving low blood circulation ," the 32-year-old cheekily wrote in the captions. The skinny jeans are accompanied by other fashion staples of the day, like oversized plain t-shirts and plaid long-sleeved shirts tied around the waist. Some netizens reminisced about the era, back when Benjamin was part of the band The Sam Willows. "Yes, this is the Ben I remember," one comment read. Another read: "It was the skinny jeans that defined the

Girlblogging: For Girls, By Girls (Girls on Film) | Filmmaker Magazine

Girlblogging is the online expression of a certain kind of girlhood: a condition not strictly defined by youth or gender, but—per the French theory collective Tiqqun in Preliminary Materials for a Theory of the Young-Girl—the quality of being “the model citizen as redefined by consumer society.” The lace and ribbons are just bells and whistles. At its core, girlhood is the aesthetic of the unequal power-relation.  The Young-Girl who constructs reactions and critiques, the girlblogger, manages to be both the consummate consumer and the consummate consumer good. Though she is wounded by them, she derives a certain pleasure from the material conditions that trap and commodify her. She exists to be looked upon, to look back at the world—particularly when it mirrors her own experience—with a covetous eye. She is made valuable and victimized by capital; it is the mechanism of her marginalization and the medium she works in on the fringes.  The practice of girlblogging is one of writing from these margins, a fundamentally filmic exercise in which visuals are at least as important as what’s actually said: aestheticized cultural criticism in posts exchanged—liked, reblogged—between online friends like trading cards. Girlblogging is memetic; it encourages engagement, as girls love

Directors Guild Reaches Tentative Deal With Studios and Streamers

After less than a month of negotiations, the Directors Guild and Hollywood’s top studios and streamers have struck a tentative deal on a new three-year labor contract. The agreement between the union and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) includes gains in wages and benefits, streaming residuals, AI protections and more. (Full details are below.) Union leaders will need to lay out what they perceive to be the gains and compromises in the contract to members in the coming days before members ultimately participate in a ratification vote. There is no date yet for the ratification vote; the tentative agreement will be submitted to the DGA’s national board at a special meeting set for Tuesday. The new deal arrives after the DGA and AMPTP spent all day Saturday at the negotiating table. “We have concluded a truly historic deal,” said Jon Avnet, chair of the DGA’s negotiations committee. “It provides significant improvements for every director, assistant director, unit production manager, associate director and stage manager in our guild.

Chinese declared missing in Abia, security operatives begin search – – The Eagle Online

Security operatives in Abia State have started a manhunt for the suspected abductors of a Chinese national working at a quarry in Lokpanta, Umunneochi Local Government Area of the state. The Chinese, Li Peiyin, a site manager at the quarry, left the site on May 31, 2023, but did not return there since then. A police source told the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday: “Li left the quarry in a caterpillar machine. “The caterpillar machine was seen with the key in its ignition. “The man has military security operatives attached to him, but on that day he did not drive out with them. “Joint efforts between the police and the military have been emplaced to rescue him.” The source said police had yet to ascertain whether it was a case of abduction or kidnapping. He said: “It is kidnapping when ransom is demanded, but at the moment, nobody has called to ask for ransom. “So it is still regarded as a case of abduction. “Our worry is why the man should drive out in a caterpillar without his security attaches.”

On June 3, 1997, the Witty Unpredictable Talent And Natural Game gave the world a double dose of their killer bee stings when they dropped the Wu Tang Forever double CD LP. The album was executively produced by the Abbott himself, RZA, along with assistance from 4th Disciple, Inspectah Deck and True Master. Released to the public under the Loud/RCA imprint with direction from the illustrious Steve Rifkind, this album was certified gold in its first week and was certified 4X platinum by the RIAA within four months of its release. Some of the hits include the album’s lead, “Triumph”, “Older Gods”, “Duck Season” and the prophetic title of their current album, A Better Tomorrow. The Clan just celebrated 20 years together in 2013 looking back on two decades of music. The Clan is also currently working on an album with Ghostface Killah running the show. Peace to the entire Clan for giving us such a monumental project without the assistance of radio/video play, which is the mark of true artistry. Salute to RZA, Divine, Power, Steve Rifkind and everyone who helped make this album a timeless classic!
