Day 12 - Your favorite full-length album cover art:The Heart of Everything
I have many a feel for this cover ok. Equating religious symbols with the doves of freedom (which is the heart of everything) with a veil over one’s eyes because we’re blind to the difference — it’s like don’t even talk to me about this. I’m feeling.
ok I am probably several years late on this post but I hope anyone who isn’t trapped in the jaws of Hell that are the United States of America knows these majestic fuckers
(fyi for anyone between the ages of 1 and 999 these are the shit)
ok so I’m walking down the candy aisle at the store earlier and what do I see OH ARE THOSE KINDER EGGS AT DISCOUNT PRICE HOLLA AT A HONEY I HAVEN’T HAD ONE OF THESE IN YEAR- wait
"KINDER EGGS for girls" in BRIGHT FUCKING PINK PACKAGING NO LESS
WHAT THE FUCK GET THESE HORRID ABOMINATIONS AWAY FROM ME
BACK IN MY DAY, WHEN I WAS STILL YOUNG WE HAD NONE OF THAT BINARY BULLSHIT
THERE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN “KINDER EGGS” AND IF YOU DIDN’T LIKE THE TOY INSIDE YOU WOULD TRADE WITH A FRIEND THAT WAS THE WHOLE DEAL
AND IT DIDN’T MATTER ANYWAY BECAUSE GUESS WHAT THE SET WAS ALWAYS THE SAME SO IF YOU GOT A TOY CAR EVERYBODY ELSE GOT A TOY CAR AND IF YOU GOT A FUCKING BATTLESHIP EVERYBODY ELSE GOT A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENTLY EQUIPPED BATTLESHIP
THE AIM WAS TO COLLECT ALL THE BATTLESHIPS THAT WAS THE POINT THAT WAS THE CHALLENGE
BUT NOW THERE ARE “KINDER EGGS (default)” AND “KINGER EGGS FOR GIRLS”
I AM MORTIFIED. I AM DISGUSTED. YOU HAVE DESTROYED THE SANCTITY OF KINDER EGGS. YOU HAVE TAINTED THEM WITH YOUR FLOWERY PINK FUCKING WRAPPING AND YOUR EXCLUSIVE 1-INCH BARBIE DOLLS. YOU HAVE LIMITED EVERY CHILD’S GATHERING ENDEAVORS TO A FUTILE STRUGGLE WHERE THE TOYS ARE FIRMLY DIFFERENTIATED AND THE WELL-MEANING PARENT WILL ONLY BUY ONE SET OF THE FUCKING TOYS. BUT WE WANT ALL THE TOYS. THIS IS HOW SOCIAL STRATIFICATION BEGINS AND SEEDS OF WAR ARE PLANTED. FOR SHAME GERMANY. FOR SHAME.
