Thank you so much ! Messages like this mean so much and make my day every time.
I started this blog back in 2013, which I had to check and totally shocked me that it has been that long.
I became interested in Taylor Swift around 2012 , since then I have ….(* deep exhale*). ……
curated a gallery show about Swift, made this Tumblr, attended graduate school and did a body of work relating to Swift, attended three stadium tours, fallen in love with her relationship with her work & her fans, collaborated with a forever friend because of our shared artistic swift interests, gotten a Taylor follow (!!!!skgjdskg!!l), awkwardly tried to talk to mama swift during an intense performance of Taylor’s because somehow I thought ’mama swift ! -This-is-totally-a-time-we-can-hear-each-other-and-it-isn’t-insanely-loud-right-now-&-your-daughter-isn’t doin-an-emotionally-powerful-performance- that-warrants-your-attention (It very much wasn’t….but my social anxiety panic activated self-sabotaging-autopilot mode.)
………and now here we are BECAUSE I CANNOT BE CASUAL ABOUT ANYTHING.
But hey, neither can @taylorswift , hence the magic
I has no chill. Nor does this Tumblr
and I think that trying to celebrate and bond over that inner lack of chill so many of us possess and at is part a big part of this Tumblr has lasted so long.
I always always always ALWAYS appreciate @taylorswift dancing while listening to her own music. it’s the perfect combination of joy, pride, and silliness. It’s also goals…when you love your work so much you can’t help but stan yourself & your hard work.
“This, this is a big deal because you realize until now Taylor swift has stayed as far away from politics as she does to rhythm right . I know, like don’t get me wrong. Don’t get me wrong, I love tay tay’s music but let’s be honest, have you seen her dancing? Taylor swift dances like she’s making fun of how white people dance. That’s how she dances.” -Trevor Noah ‘s @thedailyshow of @taylorswift ‘s boss instagram post.
I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what she’s doing. Taylor
Swift CAN dance in an on point and killer manner. She has been doing
that night after night in front of tens of thousands of fans at a time
during her stadium tours. The greater public got to witness her SLAYING
the opening of this year’s American Music Awards last week with her dancers & karyn.
Taylor is the type to go all out. @taylorswift is a dedicated hard working and prolific artist with a deep passion for her fans (and her own fandom).
If she’s going to give us awkward white girl dancing while the cameras focus too long on her in an awards show audience, she’s going to give it to us at its very best.
