Kiki Smith - Lilith, 1994 - Bronze, silicon, and glass.
“In medieval Jewish lore, Lilith was Adam’s first wife. When she demanded to be Adam’s equal, she was evicted from the Garden of Eden. Lilith flew away to the demon world, replaced by the more submissive Eve. Smith catches us off guard with Lilith’s pose and placement. Most sculptures receive our gaze passively, but Lilith stares back with piercing brown eyes, ready to pounce.”
my mother told me this story over and over when I was little
"Always be Lilith, never Eve"
No, no, no. Seriously, let’s talk about this. Eve committed original sin, guys. She knew the rules, knew what was expected of her, knew there would be consequences, but she chose to take the fruit.
Guys, that was the Tree of Knowledge. She chose knowledge over ignorance, and isn’t that just the greatest thing? And remember what the serpent said to her - it will make you equal to Elohim.
Eve chose to be equal to the gods. Lilith refused to be subservient to man.
Why should you aspire to be like one and not the other?
a good response to the question “how old are you?” is something along the lines of “dunno i stopped counting after the first few centuries”
and it needs to be said seriously without smiling or humor or as casually as possible and followed by “so anyway” and a subject change as if it’s completely normal
I did this once and my friend, without missing a single beat, turns around and says “For the last time, you’re 1206. Why I even bother…”
oh fuck can’t stop laughing
MY BROTHER TOLD ME HIS TEACHER SAID “WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD” IS ACTUALLY A JOKE SAYING THAT PEOPLE WHO WALK INTO TRAFFIC TO KILL THEMSELVES ARE COWARDS
THE CHICKEN IS A PERSON
CROSSING THE ROAD IS WALKING INTO ONCOMING TRAFFIC
OH MY GOD THAT IS NOT FUNNY AT ALL
And the punchline is a metaphor for the afterlife
I made a mashup of “Whip My Hair” and “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” …
oh mY GOD
"We were dancing everywhere. We’d be on breaks between filming, we were doing them. I remember there was a trip out to go see a band and we all went back to Emma’s house in London for a bit and we waltzed in her kitchen, just doing the dancing. Just practicing." - Matt Lewis
What if people who have anxiety are just unaccustomed to the way the world works because this is the first incarnation of their soul on the earth? And confident people are at ease with the world because they have already been incarnated multiple times and, in a sense, already know how the world works.
What if it’s the other way around?
I don’t know which disturbs me more.
there’s a special place in hell reserved just for me
it’s called the throne
