Kanye West getting deep on twitter
this is why I love this man.
Okay, if you don’t love Kanye, I question you and will forever until you learn.
I’ve never had a man ask me straight up if it was okay to use the word “bitch” even endearingly.
is this real
My main issue with Kanye West is that so many of his songs are about women trying to take his money and fool him and just misogynistic what not. I know he raps about other stuff but at least his radio stuff is pretty not kind towards women. After reading this I will have to look more into him and his other songs, but Gold Digger has just the exact opposite message of the Ray Charles song he borrows from and that has always bothered me.
I really appreciate that he is at least critically thinking about using the word bitch as a main stream male artist who uses the word bitch.

“We are the generation of nostalgia. We grew up in the age of transition. From hand-written letters to electronic mails. From film to digital. We were fascinated by new things, neglecting the way we spend our afternoons. Cupcakes and tea. Play-Doh and Polly Pockets. Young and naive. Technology completely changed the way we waited and we grew up too fast. The simple things in life seems more meaningful now. We grew up in the age of transition and have become the generation of nostalgia.”
This is the best/truest thing I’ve read in so long (via thesleepingfawn)
But this explains the 90s kids

These are insanely impressive and very, very hot. Someone’s stripped the source credit, though… Any tips?
Found the source (as far as I can tell, correct me if I’m wrong): Rope Wear
ERINYAK ERINYAK ERINYAK ERINYAK SHOOT THIS WITH ME!!!! :p
Once I have enough cash for this much rope, sure :p
also a;sodfkuajld;ksa dying giggling at keyboard smashed “Erinyak” :D
I know it’s not your normal cup o tea. It’s not really mine either, but then again it’s always nice to try different tea for something new. I wonder if we could do something like this and get me in the air :p
Out of curiosity, how much rope would be needed for something like this? I wonder if I can put it in my 2013 budget… :3
this is amazing!

A Bronx bus company is offering tours billed as a “a ride through a real New York City ‘GHETTO,’” the New York Post reports.
The company, Real Bronx Tours, has taken largely white foreign tourists around the Bronx. The tour guide was caught mocking the Bronx by Post reporter Candice Giove.
Three times a week, Real Bronx Tours takes riders — mainly white Europeans and Australians — on a trip that includes stops at food-pantry lines and a “pickpocket” park.
“Last week, on the first stop of the $45 tour, guide Lynn Battaglia, from Pittsburgh, pointed out a housing project. She then mocked the Grand Concourse, modeled after a Parisian boulevard,” reports Giove.“‘Do you feel like we’re on the Champs-Elysées?’ she teased a couple from Paris.”
The tour also included a drive near a food pantry at a church. Battaglia wondered out loud, “I don’t know what that line’s about, but every Wednesday we see it. We see them go in with empty carts, and we see them come out with carts full.
The tour guide warned of the dangers of going to a park in the Bronx and also gave inaccurate information about the origin of the word “pig” to describe a police officer. While Battaglia claimed the word came from the Bronx, in reality it originated in London.
The Bronx borough president harshly criticized the guide and the tour.
The guide is “the biggest fool on the planet,” said Ruben Diaz, the borough president. “To have foreigners come and gawk at a long line of people who are less fortunate than they are and to make money off of that and to view them as they are some sort of entertainment is pretty disgusting.” [emphasis mine]

“I’m not trying to spell out a story. I still think you feel the painting, and the reason you read the mark is because you also feel the mark.”
Julie Mehretu, our current 100 Artists featured artist, is seen here in her Berlin studio working on the painting Middle Grey (2007–2009), one work in a suite of seven paintings commissioned by the Deutsche Guggenheim as part of the exhibition Julie Mehretu: Grey Area.
