"Tid-Bits of Knowlege"

2007, age 15

Cruising through highschool filled with angst and contemplation, thinking everyone was a dumb-ass, I’d sit quietly at my desk and work on my second little book of ethics and humor by some of my favorite literary personalities, including Aesop, Oscar Wilde, Patrick Rothfuss, Sir Edmund Appleton and many others…

The book’s roughly 1 square inch, each page took about 45 minutes to 3 hours to complete. - This book also marks my discovery of the Micron Pen, given to me thoughtfully as a birthday gift by my friend Joan, a waitress who watched me scribble on the backs of placemats since I was a baby.

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts

imreallybad:

repeat after me: 

  • virginity is a social construct 
  • you don’t lose your virginity 
  • there’s nothing valuable or precious about virginity, it’s an imaginary concept 
  • virginity is inherently heterocentric 
  • your worth is not defined by whether or not you’ve had a dick inside you
  • what you define as sex is up to you, you get to decide how many people you’ve had sex with 
  • the end

Madonna della Rocca, Taormina, Sicily

Sometime in the ancient past, this sacred mountain cave became a monastery. An Arab traveller mentions the site as early as 1154 AD. By 1640, the cave had been transformed into an elaborate chapel, “Madonna of the Rock.”
