Painting by Peter Elson from the book Dangerous Frontiers (1980)

A year ago I was shooting a film in Alston when my mother called me, just a few blocks away from the Marathon, to see if I was alright.  I very nearly attended the event myself, and my parents would have been caught in the explosion had they not chosen that exact moment to get lunch.

There was a lot of shit that happened in the aftermath.  The news coverage was deplorable, increased reports of hate crimes against Muslims, Politicians on all sides of the aisle using the event for political gain, and of course the way it made Boston into a perfect little police state.

For every bad thing, it was great to see even more people coming together and supporting each other.  There is a lot of hate in the world.  But somehow I still have some faith in humanity.  I dunno

Norwegian artist Anja Niemi continues to combine the self-portrait with the idea of the staged narrative. The images are like film stills or movie posters, with herself cast as all the characters. Niemi calls herself a ‘one-man band’, as she always works alone.



the glorification of kurt cobain and demonization of courtney love is so discouraging but a reminder that if you’re a man and you’re an abrasive, provocative, drug-addled musician then you’re the voice of a generation but if you’re all of those things and a woman, you’re a junkie succubus

Courtney love hate may be overblown (she didn’t murder kurt cobain) but still, she seems to have a long track record of being an asshat. Also her ideas on band ownership is appalling.


don’t hurt BEES. they just want to pollinate flowers and make honey. hurt WASP’s. fuck them and their old money, big mansions, and country clubs
