the one thing that has stuck with me every day since my English teacher told me it in middle school is:
"When referring to someone, always say who they are before anything else about them, because being a person always comes first"
Instead of saying “the mentally ill man,” say “the man with a mental illness”
Putting someone’s characteristics (especially negative ones) before them is dehumanizing and rude. Don’t do it.
After thirteen years (I’m now 20) , I had enough money saved to finally get the helmet from the Discovery era.
I was seven when I heard one of their songs for the first time, it was their “Around the World” music video on MTV. I remember sitting there in a trance in front of the Tv as i swayed along to the beats of the song. I thought it was the greatest thing I had ever seen. Of coarse after the music video ended I was sad and scared that I would never hear a song from these robots again… Fast forward, I am now 9 years old again watching music videos, and happened to come across a video from Stardust called Music Sounds Better with You. Loved it instantly and danced around like a giddy lunatic not knowing that Thomas Bangalter was in it.
Toonami; the rekindling fire in my childhood.
Sitting watching toonami it happened:
Guy-man: “Greetings we are Daft Punk-“
Thomas: “Check out our new animated music videos on toonami dot com.”
My eyes widened as “One more Time” started playing after their commercial aired… I remember running across the house yelling
"Mom it’s them! The robots that do the music I like!!!"
As a twelve to thirteen year old, I wasn’t taken seriously on the amount of infatuation i had with them. Again in a trace I stared at the screen with the biggest smile on my face humming along and swaying to the song. It was them, the duo I have grown up with, that I looked up to, i finally knew the name “Daft Punk”.
For thirteen years I have loved their music and continue to do so even ‘til this day.
This made my day
do you ever just “what the fuck is the point” so hard that you stop everything you’re doing and stare and pretty much wonder why you don’t vanish from existence because the level of done you are should pretty much deconstruct your biological makeup
Best one that we got :D
