Sometimes you meet a person and you just click–you’re comfortable with them, like you’ve known them your whole life and you don’t have to pretend to be anyone or anything.

I just can’t keep myself from being outraged at realizing that we build conceptions and systems on an already underlying system that we don’t question because it is imposed to us as the way of life. The only part that bothers me really is the one where we are told to go to university as fast as we can to finish as fast as we can to make money as fast as we can. In that set of life, the human doesn’t question his ambitions, wants, needs, interests. It just does what should be done. In other words, it EXISTS and WORKS for a system that isn’t his instead of LIVING HIS life. 


me: wow i cant wait to watch the Thor: Ragnarok (2017) director’s commentary and find out all the cool behind the scenes facts that went into the production of my movie of the year!!!!!

EVERYWHERE—Claiming that they just couldn’t stand this bullshit anymore, Americans across the country confirmed Friday that someone, anyone needs to please, just make it stop. “Please, please, please, we’re begging you here, just put an end to it immediately,” said sources, noting that it had all gone way, way too far and they would do almost anything for even a few glorious minutes of respite. “We’re on our hands and knees, pleading with you to make it all go away once and for all. What’s it going to take? Jesus Christ, just stop it! Stop it right now!” At press time, sources confirmed that they knew deep down it was never going to stop.

The Good Place Appreciation Week
Day Two: Favourite Character - Jason Mendoza



kids are fucking fragile, ok? when you have no life experience you have nothing to compare your troubles to and many things ARE, in fact, the worst thing to ever happen to you.

i’m 20. and i had a rough week this week. and one of the reasons it wasn’t as rough as it could have been is because i have had worse. i have been in more pain than this before and it was really helpful to be able to say to myself, yes, ok, i’m feeling like a massive pile of shit right now, but i remember how i felt when thing x happened y years ago and that was objectively more horrible and if i got through that then i’m going to survive this.

when i was 16 i couldn’t do that because thing x was in fact the worst thing to ever happen to me. because when you haven’t lived very long some of the things that happen WILL be the worst things to ever happen to you and you’re fucking allowed to be angry and upset and so on. there is no age you have to reach before you’re allowed to feel bad. i can’t believe this discourse tbh.

kids are fragile and they’re dismissed all the time for having feelings because shitty ass adults are so selfish that they can’t wrap their minds around the idea that MAYBE their feelings aren’t more important than a child’s. seriously fuck off maybe if someone had taken me seriously as a kid i’d be a functional adult

Also, from a developmental standpoint, kids have not yet learned to deal with their emotions. When a kid has a tantrum, it’s not because they’re a spoiled brat (most of the time), it’s because they literally lack the physical and emotional capacity to deal with that emotion. Part of that is experience, yes, but part of it is purely biology. Their minds are still growing and developing. They’re still being socialized. They’re still discovering how to be human. 

And I get it. Maybe you look at a kid, or a teen, and you think, “You have no idea what pain is,” but if you do, I beg you to consider two things: 1) even if that were true, would it kill you to just be kind? and 2) isn’t that a good thing????? If the worst thing that has ever happened to someone so far is a bad break-up or the dissolution of a friendship or the death of a beloved pet, then…good? Why would you want them to have experienced worse? Why would you want to wish more pain on someone??? 

Just be kind. Be freaking kind. Don’t let the pain you’ve suffered dull you to the possibility that someone else’s pain is real. If you’ve been there before, then don’t be an asshole, be a guide. Show them the way through.

Mother of the bride

My soul is tossed around by the tempest of the waves, and my heart is pulled from shore to shore as I turn my back on the grace you so freely offer me.
With each new death I die, I find, you meet me there
in the midst of all my despair, there’s a cross to bear.

I tried to empty myself in an attempt to fade away
I left deep impressions, that will never fade away.
I lost all control the moment I tightened my grip on a life I could not understand
and I fell from the grace you offer up so freely, the moment I let go of your hand.

With each new death I die, I feel more in control.
And the more control I feel, the less I find I have.
It’s an endless cycle of death birthing a twisted version of life,
and I’ll turn down your offer of bread and wine
to run on empty until I collapse.

I don’t deserve the bread you offer me, your broken body for all to see;
I’ll wither away under the guise
that I’m in control, I’ll feed on the lies
but I won’t take
not one crumb more.

Corps mémorable   Year:1957  Author:Paul Éluard        1895 to 1952       

Artist:Pablo Picasso        1881 to 1973        Publisher Seghers              

Although several artists contributed to the book Corps memorable, it is not an artist’s book published in a small edition, but a photo book, which is a popular object among collectors. There could be no intense collaboration between poet Paul Éluard and photographer Lucien Clergue, as Éluard had already passed away. This is however still a remarkable edition, not only because of the interplay between Éluard’s poems and Clergue’s nude photographs, but also because of Cocteau’s opening poem, Picasso’s cover design, and especially the fact that this was to be the first book of nude photography that was allowed to be sold publicly in Paris.


The identity of the buxom lady in Clergue’s twelve photographs is unknown. She is not named in any of the dedications that precede the actual text. The photographer dedicated the book to the memory of his mother (‘A la mémoire de ma chère mère Jeanne Grangeon’). But Éluard’s poems were not dedicated to the ‘she’ ('Elle’) he commemorates in the poems. That term referred to Maria Benz, Éluard’s great love, 'la parfaite’ Nusch, who had died a year before the first edition of Corps mémorable (without Clergue’s photographs) was published. He dedicated the book to Jacqueline, who supported him in his mourning and despair:

Ah! mille flammes, un feu, la lumière,
Une ombre!
Le soleil me suit,

Jacqueline me prolonge

Four aces

At a young age, Lucien Clergue developed friendships with people he would later refer to as his four aces: Picasso, Cocteau, Éluard and publisher Pierre Seghers. With them he shared his predilection for bull-fighting and nude studies. Clergue put down roots in the famous town of Arles in the south of France, where Van Gogh had lived and worked. As an autodidact, Clergue first started out with photography in 1949. Jean Cocteau saw Clergue’s photographs and encouraged him to send them to Seghers. Seghers then requested the 23-year-old photographer to illustrate a new edition of Corps mémorable. This would be Seghers’ first step on his way to the artist’s book. Picasso’s design on the front cover is an abstract version of Clergue’s nude photo on the rear.

Why is the lighting on this so dramatic? Is this an eldritch pie? Is it poisoned? Is it magic? If I eat it will I see visions of the future? Will I astrally project into a blueberry?

When you're with someone


You don’t just sign up for the cute dates, the cuddles, the smiles. You don’t just sign up for the long talks, and learning each other’s hearts. You sign up for the struggles, the crying, the anger and depression. You sign up for the screaming and pushing away. You don’t get to pick and choose. That’s the beautiful part. You don’t just get the good…You get the bad that comes with it and form love out of it all.
