i have no time for you if you don’t like this movie
exams and term papers got you stressed out and run down? well just remember, no matter how poorly you do, and no matter how much better everyone else does, no one is getting a job when they graduate
when i find myself in times of trouble, remus lupin comes to me speaking words of wisdom
My internet acquaintance Ross Piper had a copy of his new book sent to me and it’s exactly what I’d expect from him.
This book takes you through EVERY phylum in the animal kingdom with gorgeous illustrations and seldom-seen photographs.
My chain hits my chest
when I’m banging on the dashboard
my chain hits my chest
when I’m banging on the radio
suki zuky I’m coming in the Cherokee
gasoline there’s steam on the window screen
take it take it wheels bouncing like a trampoline
when I get to where I’m going
gonna have you trembling
“Suki, suki” means “drive, drive” in Arabic. In the music video Saudi Arabian women are driving and aren’t supposed to, so MIA’s saying “suki, suki”. They’re bad girls.
Further, سوقي (suuqii) is in the imperative singular feminine, in a form I think is Saudi colloquial — more formal would be اسوقي. So, it has an additional subtlety of telling a female to drive.
also the term “sooky sooky” has been a mainstay in r&b music and AAVE, so there’s maybe like this double meaning wordplay going on? cool!
