books that make you emotionally unstable are the best kind of books




I am a street photographer in New York City. Several months ago, I was approached by a representative of DKNY who asked to purchase 300 of my photos to hang in their store windows “around the world.” They offered me $15,000. A friend in the industry told me that $50 per photo was not nearly enough to receive from a company with hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue. So I asked for more money. They said “no.”

Today, a fan sent me a photo from a DKNY store in Bangkok. The window is full of my photos. These photos were used without my knowledge, and without compensation.

I don’t want any money. But please REBLOG this post if you think that DKNY should donate $100,000 on my behalf to the YMCA in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. That donation would sure help a lot of deserving kids go to summer camp. I’ll let you guys know if it happens.

i can’t save the world. my sun will die eventually. one convenient part of being creative and well-resourced in life though, is that you can make a point to never be bored. oh and you can seclude yourself from the voices of fools. if you love me… when i’m done, let me vibrate in peace.

President Obama made it clear yesterday that he’s fed up with a do-nothing Congress and won’t be intimidated by GOP attacks.

At his first news conference since being re-elected, Obama dared Republicans to raise taxes on the richest Americans, and slammed two powerful GOP lawmakers for picking on his U.N. ambassador, challenging them to “go after me” instead.

With another four years in the White House stretching before him, a stern Obama took Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham to task for their “outrageous” swipes against Ambassador Susan Rice.

Rice has been under fire for remarks she made days after the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. She called the assault, in which Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed, a “spontaneous” act spawned by protests against an anti-Islam film. She later corrected herself, saying that intelligence subsequently had determined that it was a terrorist attack.

“If Sen. McCain and Sen. Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me,” Obama told reporters in the East Room of the White House. “And I’m happy to have that discussion with them. But for them to go after the U.N. ambassador, who had nothing to do with Benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous.”

And off the gloves come.

yea, I quit.
