do you ever think about how little Michelangelo cared

All right, everyone, grab a chair and sit back because I’m going to share with you what I learned about Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel in my Art History Class.

The man NEVER wanted to paint the damn thing. But the pope at the time “forced him to” According to my teacher. Michelangelo hated this man, I MEAN REALLY HATED HIM. So did a majority of people. The pope’s nickname translated literally means “Terrible pope”.

And the working conditions were awful. He had to work on his back with all that paint, which is filled with some toxic shit that gave Michelangelo a limp for the rest of his life.
(Also, our teacher made us get on our backs and try drawing with both hands JUST to prove how bad and uncomfortable it is.)

At the time, the ceiling was so high, you could barely see it. You need binoculars to get a good look at what’s up there, by the time people could see the paintings, there was a lot of weird symbolism that Michelangelo hid up there.

This one? The creation of the sun and moon? God is mooning you. And the pope and all others after him prayed under that without knowing.

This one? At the time, dissecting was sacrilegious and everyone found out how behind God was what looked like half a brain. blah blah, science, science, that pissed everyone off.

And also, ALLLLLLL the men and women in the Sistine Chapel are all on fucking steroids. My teacher described the women’s bodies as "Men bodies with boobs slapped on."

And then there is this:

Now this is the back wall. Michelangelo actually wanted to paint this one after he finished the ceiling. (and there was a different pope too, I believe.) However, originally, EVERYONE in that painting was naked. And they didn’t like it. Adam and Eve naked? That’s cool. But Jesus? Now you crossed the line. So the pope at the time hired someone else to censor it and give the important figures clothes. He worked on it for 6 or 9 months before he died.

And then the symbolism in this one is great. Somewhere in the right, there are homosexuals in heaven. (No matter what, the Vatican will say “Those straight men are happy” I’ll get to that in a second), Michelangelo painted himself near Jesus, and the terrible pope is in hell with a snake biting his balls.

And if you were to point ANY of this out to the Vatican, they will deny all of it and claim Michelangelo was a catholic hero. In fact, when they discovered the symbolism around the 60s or 70s, the guy who told the Vatican was kicked out of the Vatican for life.

TL;DR: Michelangelo hated the pope and made the best “fuck you” of all time.

i like how cis people act like it would be the worst thing in the world not to assume people’s genders i mean we don’t assume people’s names what if you just met someone and you were like “hey emily” and they were like “thats not my name its megan” and you were like “oh well how was i supposed to know. you look like an emily to me. i guess i can try to call you megan but its gonna be hard because i just see you as such an emily”

the day

  • on one hand i really want to cut my hair
  • on the other hand i’m terrified to cut my hair because i feel like that would be the final step in admitting that something’s actually wrong and tbh i still can’t fucking accept that about myself it’s just
  • not something i’m comfortable with
  • after two years
  • wow
  • i have no willpower to do any homework and it’s because i’m so afraid
  • like i realized recently how scared i am of everything i can’t walk down a hallway and make eye contact with people very well anymore i can’t fucking do anything without a buddy and for a while that was russell but i think he caught on and he’s not really safe anymore so now it’s like
  • a lost and confusing mess
  • my a cappella audition was awful and i know it was but for the love of god [name removed] that doesn’t mean you need to look at me like i’m poisoned
  • science research i’m getting better with i just need to pretend that s isn’t there but choir’s only getting worse
  • i have a scarf that i’ve been carrying with me for when i get really really afraid because it’s a soft texture and it has a lot of tiny parts and stitches and it helps me calm down
  • or if not calm down then [pick at least one: have some control over my mood / not burst into tears / breathe more than sporadically]
  • but like that thing only came out for the full period today in choir and the entire time that i’m in that room i feel awful about myself and really really inadequate like
  • there are so many people better than me who got into women’s who would’ve done even better in my place why am i here
  • i’m really enjoying physics like it’s my favorite class of the day because in math we sometimes have group work but physics is lecture based and all formulas and once you understand it it’s there and he doesn’t expect us to participate besides following along
  • there’s no scarf in that class
  • during marching band today he divided us into green, orange, and red groups to do small group playing out of nowhere
  • he put all the strong people on red and all the second strongest on orange and green was me, a few freshmen, karsten, and hannah rosenfelder
  • and we sounded disgusting and we knew it and it was humiliating when he purposely put all the good people in one group to have to compare back to them
  • it’s not even that i can’t play well it’s that my instrument is pretty close to a piece of trash
  • the bell came dented and i’ve been taking the best care of it that i can but it’s like a crushed soda can with a 12c mouthpiece
  • he says he’s getting me a bigger one that fits the instrument and it’s like where was this all of last season
  • i sound 50x better on phil’s trombone because the tubing is still in the shape it’s supposed to be
  • i’m constantly tired and always hungry and i can never focus on anything and i’m still coughing
  • i have an ello now it’s soups
  • my dad was asking me about school and i couldn’t even respond because i’m even afraid of him to an extent
  • i can’t tell if i hate myself more or just my body


Almost all of music theory can be explained by one simple circle, the Circle of Fifths shows the relationship between math and music, between ratios and harmony
