Hello there. I’m Chris. I take strange pictures and I meet strange people, both of which you may care to know about. Religiously, a Pagan by practice, Theosophist by philosophy, and an Atheist when it gets down to the nitty gritty. Huge supporter of the GSM/Queer community. An amateur film photographer, science hobbiest, and both a techie and a bit of a luddite depending on the technology in question.

Vivian Maier

"In 2007 Chicago 26-year-old real estate agent (and president of the Jefferson Park Historical Society) John Maloof walked into an auction house and placed a $380 bid on a box of 30,000 prints and negatives from an unknown photographer. Realizing the street photographs of 1950s/60s era Chicago and New York were of unusually high quality he purchased another lot of photographer’s work totaling some 100,000 photographic negatives, thousands of prints, 700 rolls of undeveloped color film, home movies, audio tape interviews, and original cameras.

Over time it became clear the photos belonged to a Chicago nanny named Vivian Maier who had photographed prolifically for nearly 40 years, but who never shared her work during her lifetime. Since the discovery Maier’s photographs have received international attention with collections touring in cities around the world as well as the publication of a book.”

Petition: Make Octavia Butler the WFA Statue Instead of Lovecraft

badass-bharat-deafmuslim-artista:

Everyone should sign this. I support this petition! (WFA stands for World Fantasy Awards)

Octavia Butler contributed a rich, nuanced, complex body of work during her lifetime. Her novels, essays and short stories changed the entire genre of speculative fiction by complicating our notions of power, race and gender. Her characters were vivid and deeply human and her prose was sharp. She wrote masterfully across the imaginative genres, from science fiction to historical fantasy to horror. 

While HP Lovecraft, whose head the current award is modeled after, did leave a lasting mark on speculative fiction, he was also an avowed racist and a terrible wordsmith. Many writers have spoken out about their discomfort with winning an award that lauds someone with such hideous opinions, most notably Nnedi Okorafor.  It’s time to stop co-signing his bigotry and move sci-fi/fantasy out of the past.

As a giant fan of H.P. Lovecraft, I have to agree.  Don’t build statues of the fucker.

I cannot make you understand. I cannot make anyone understand what is happening inside me. I cannot even explain it to myself.

There’s no need to be crabby about it.

I find it oddly flattering that the Anti-Vaccination crowd thinks that I— an actual Autistic— am some kind of monster that was created in a lab. There’s a ’50s B-movie in this, is what I’m getting at.

Never forget that Ami tricked her classmate who couldn’t read English into thinking the lyrics to “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins were important space engineering documents.

I called bullshit. I pulled up the episode.

It’s real. Jesus fucking christ it’s real Kenny Loggins is in Sailor Moon what the actual shit.

A hotel in upstate New York is threatening guests with a $500 fine if they give it a negative Yelp review.  I went on Yelp and read some of the hotel’s reviews. And they’re all positive…

That last one is comedy gold.
