the awkward space between

"I knew I was strong, and maybe like they said, 'crazy'. But I had this feeling inside of me that something real was there."

I was in the vinyl section of a shop today and was innocently looking around at the beautiful beautiful records when these two girls come over to the section (which is sadly small) and pick up a 7” copy of a 5 Seconds of Summer record. After exclaiming how good looking they are, one of them takes it out of the sleeve and says to the other “I don’t get it, do you like put it on a wall or something?”

I can almost hear the cries of Jack White.

Joan Jett’s jacket. Notice the pins.

"keep abortion legal"

"If she says no, it’s rape"

"Pro fucking choice"

This jacket is from about thirty years ago. These issues were big then. Thirty years later, these issues are still present. I was amazed to find these pins on the jacket, and realize this, because I would have thought, back then, if I was alive, that those issues would be solved by NOW.

But they aren’t. Joan Jett knew what was up.

Why can’t we take a minute and soak in her “bad reputation” and think about how in thirty years, abortion and rape culture STILL are huge issues.

Ballin’ like a bawss

Have you ever tried keeping quiet all day long - the moment you wake till you go to sleep. And better yet just sleep all day long and forget the day. Get up the next day you feel great. People do too much. They say too much.

The two leads in The Piano Teacher were photographed in close ups that put them in the middle of the frame, often with negative space around them. Their desire, lust, shame and humiliation was put on full and naked display for the audience. They couldn’t hide from us, and we couldn’t hide from them.
