So I'm all about resolving issues of gender dysphoria, but this is just creepy. No offense. It's mainly the masks that I can't handle. It's almost like you'd be having sex with a mass murderer!

Words more beautiful than a Hellenistic pediment

Now I'm a literary novice, but this is by far one of the most beautiful things I've ever read! Where is the beauty in art lately? Everyone and everything seems to avoid it.

I remember awkward pauses the most and cold tea I couldn't drink while hot.

It was the information age
but, instead of being informed
I put holes in walls
then plastered them.

I read history books like newspapers and whispered current events in your ear.
My yesterday's are closer than your today's-
(nothing's happening.)

I'll sleep with the television on
and listen to the footsteps above us
or the fountains that sound like rain.

I'll dream in black and white.

-Amanda Domenech

Antony, you are beautiful!

Dear Miranda July,

A mutual friend told me that you had been working on a new movie and book last year. I keep visiting your website to see if there are any updates about it, but haven't seen anything yet. I suppose Eleven Heavy Things provided me with enough pleasure for the time being.

Thank You,

Whoa there Kelis!

This was just too good to pass up.

The Burial Series #6

...ready to start #7!

A new addiction

I thought that I was addicted to coffee... I can already tell this blog is going to be much more addicting. This will be my very neat electronic version of a desk full of clipped articles and pictures, half-torn pieces of paper with my ideas scribbled on them, folded up receipts with names of artists I need to look into, and individuals, books, communities, etc that people suggest I look up. It will definitely be much less stressful for me than having to live with a mass of unorganized paper. Hopefully it will be good for my artwork- a one-stop shop for sources and ideas.

And now, on to Charlie White. While looking up faculty at grad schools that I'm applying to, I came across this artist whose work is very intriguing. His Teen and Transgender Comparative Study photographs are quite amazing, so here they are:

Pass This On

All the excitement over Tomorrow, In a Year has made me rewatch some older videos by The Knife. This one is still SO GOOD!

The melting point of bodies

When you found out the sonogram was wrong
You rushed home to change the color of the room
To better suit me
Before the paint could dry
The water broke

I was painted the color of the walls
By the time I took my first breath
You greeted me
Treated me like
The prince I never was

You taught me how to make things with my hands
How to break the extra ridges off the moon
When I cried
Because it looked
More like the sun

I found myself back in the room
Where the paint never fully dried
And with my fingertip
Wrote the name
You left me

Being stubborn can only get you so far

I've been anti-blogs for quite some time now, but I came across this and decided it was time to make one of my own. "The Times They Are A-Changin'"
