"Some people don’t sleep at night - I am one of those people. These pictures were taken long after everyone had gone to bed - I would begin after midnight and go until 4 or 5 in the morning. I stopped at sunrise - like a vampire… I never really thought anyone would ever see these pictures, they went into shoeboxes, where they remained. I did everything - I was the stylist, the makeup artist, the furniture mover, the lighting director. It was my joy - I was the model…" Stevie Nicks

Emerson goes up to the counter and orders three venti americanos: one for him, one for his wife, and one for Henry David Thoreau. His wife hints to Thoreau that she wants him to sit at a separate table, but he is incredibly dense and loudly drags a chair over to join the Emersons. Afterwards, he makes them pay for his laundry at the laundromat.
work in progress, this picture is dedicated to a friend!

"Someone calling a white person ‘wonder bread’ isn’t racist. It’s rude, but it’s not racist. Wonder bread as an offensive term has no weight, no meaning. It’s just something to push your buttons. Using the N-word is racist - it has meaning and weight and brings up a past that should’ve never happened. The comparison between rude and racist is like squares and rectangles - every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square. Every racist comment you hear is rude, but not every rude comment you hear is racist." - from an in-class debate about white supremacy (via seehowtame)
