@mxtthxw I'm not American, but I'd like to second your opinion. And honestly, bellend is far too polite a way of putting it.

Delete the adjectives and you’ll have the facts. - Harper Lee

"I made no resolutions for the New Year. The habit of making plans, of criticizing, sanctioning and molding my life, is too much of a daily event for me." - Anaïs Nin

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;|

I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

"Ghost Apples" are a phenomenon happening when freezing rain coats rotting apples before they fall.

When the rotting apple becomes mushy, it falls out of the bottom leaving its icy shell behind.

These ghost apples were spotted in Michigan.

Today’s poem is for anyone opening the first window of their advent calendar this morning.

It’s called ‘The Good Old Days’.

"Your first design, while it may seem like a solution, is usually just an early definition of the problem you are trying to solve." - LukeW -

@evan I chose somewhat agree, but feel closer to strongly agree. I see this as very similar to hashtags in bio's etc. If you support a cause, you should understand what is being done in its name.

I've been called out too many times for NOT supporting a cause with people demanding an explanation, but every time I knew more about what was being done in the name of that cause than the people demanding my explanation.

If people feel strongly enough to protest, they should be informed.

@alfiegoodrich oh, turns out I had liked some of your work before after being reblogged by others, but not looked any further. Glad to have found you anyway!

Good morning from Tokyo. Had 9hrs sleep last night. Most I've had in about three weeks or more. In Yokohama late afternoon, shooting an artist friend's show. Looking forward to that.

Whatever you're up to, have a great Sunday.

Love & peace


@alfiegoodrich just discovered your work. Sensational! Hasselblad's Saul Leiter. Incredible!!!!

This is so embarrassing, but it seems that you have mistaken me for that other person on the internet who likes to argue with random people.

How to write good.
1. Avoid alliteration. Always.
2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
3. Avoid clichés like the plague. (They're old hat.)
4. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
5. One should never generalize.
6. Comparisons are as bad as clichés.
7. Be more or less specific.
8. Sentence fragments? Eliminate.
9. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
10. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.
11. Who needs rhetorical questions?

@ProjectFearlessness not just the Israel-Palestine conflict, but any conflict. There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.

@dashie the Media Explorer in Reaper is pretty good
