Sometimes I feel mad at her. Feel like I could scratch her hair right off her head. But then I think, Shug got a right to live too. She got a right to look over the world in whatever company she choose. Just cause I love her don’t take away none of her rights.

The Color Purple

I’ve seen this video before, once, a few months ago. It was great then, but I kind of just left it. During this past week, I think I have watched it approximately 742 more times. And not just listened in the background, but actually watched.

For those of you that know me, you know I get obsessed about very specific things that I like. For example, Whoopi Goldberg’s wrist motion when she conducts “Hail Holy Queen” in Sister Act, or the harmony when Judy Garland and Mel Torme sing “The Christmas Song” together.

This video is my new obsession.

0:44-1:05 - How the dance continuously moves back and forth between horrifyingly rigid and smooth beautiful ballet…gives me chills every time.

2:01-2:34 - Same thing.

This video really is very good.

Before, I used to just wear sweatpants every day. I didn’t want to have to get up and get dressed. I thought girls dressed like girls and guys dress as guys. I was never a lesbian. I didn’t want to walk down the street and have people see me as a girl with another girl. Obviously there’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s just not me.”
