"There is always one person you love who becomes that definition. It usually happens retrospectively, but it happens eventually. This is the person who unknowingly sets the template for what you will always love about other people, even if some of these lovable qualities are self-destructive and unreasonable. The person who defines your understanding of love is not inherently different than anyone else, and they’re often just the person you happen to meet the first time you really, really, want to love someone. But that person still wins. They win, and you lose. Because for the rest of your life, they will control how you feel about everyone else."

"The best feeling in the world is knowing your presence and absence both mean something to someone."

"I want to spend October with you, because it’s
my favorite month and happens during my
favorite season. I wish we could aimlessly
walk around a forest and with each leaf that
falls from the branches above, we fall a little
more for each other too. While hand in hand
we can crave the smell of warm coffee and
cinnamon muffins on a chilly morning, we
could feel the autumn breeze brush against
our skin and the goose bumps we get, we
won’t be able to tell if it’s from touching each
other’s skin or from the wind being too cool.
When we lay in bed you’d have the hardest
time moving an inch away from me, because
I’d want to be skin to skin every minute.
These lonely summer nights without you make
me crave the fall, and crave the season of
death in the hopes that maybe this loneliness
would die too, and you’d appear by my side.
I can’t tell if I love the night too dearly, or
hate it too passionately. I think I’d adore
it if I got to sleep next to you every evening,
and I think that I’d enjoy the sunset more
watching it hit your face than actually
seeing it say goodnight. I just crave to
spend time with you, I do."

"That’s when I understand that I have been stained. Whether I’m still in love with him, whether he was ever in love with me, and no matter who he’s in love with now, he changed my life. He showed me how to get lost, and then I showed myself how to get found."

Pulled an amateur move. I took the wrong subway line to Brooklyn, but I just so happen to get off at the feast in little Italy. I’m not complaining.

A Statement from the Monkey
Monkey feel vindicated that U.S. Copyright Office rule Bad Man ineligible to claim Monkey Selfie as intellectual property. Monkey advised by counsel not to comment while issue being adjudicated, but now that ruling has been issued Monkey grateful to be able to speak out for first time, and perhaps provide valuable context.
When Monkey snatch camera from Bad Man and run hooting into tall grass, Monkey see it as liberating act of self-expression, and, yes, perhaps even blow against human cultural hegemony. The fact that Monkey not realize at first that camera was camera and try to eat it, irrelevant. Once Monkey recognize that device make clicky sound, Monkey become fascinated. In that moment, Monkey reborn as Artist.

Powerful Reverse Video Sends an Impossible to Ignore Anti-War Message

Words simply won’t do this ad justice, and that ought to be the beginning and end of this post. But just in case you need further encouragement to click play, or you’d like to find out more about this video, you can read on.

Created by award-winning director Martin Stirling — the same mind behind this powerful ‘one second of video per day’ anti-war ad from we shared back in March — the video plays the slow-motion bombing of a school playground in reverse, and is a feat of cinematic brilliance.

Seung-Hwan Oh Fuses Art With Microbiology In Bacteria Manipulated Photographs

Using homegrown bacteria, photographer Seung-Hwan Oh warps and manipulates his photographs, surrendering his art to a higher ecological order. Oh, who also goes by the name Tonio Oh, explains that his intention is to “explore the impermanence of matter as well as the material limitations of photography.” It brings the artist’s studio into the laboratory, marvelously blending the organic and the artificial.

Oh’s website describes the process:

“As the microbes consume light-sensitive chemical over the course of months or years, the silver halides destabilize, obfuscating the legibility of foreground, background, and scale.”

This is the World’s Most Valuable Selfie: It Was Taken in the 1850s and Just Sold for $115K
Photography pioneer Oscar Rjlander captured a self-portrait in the 1850s that is being hailed as yet another ‘first selfie ever.’ But whether or not it really is the first (and that doesn’t seem to be the case) it can probably claim to be the most valuable selfie (based on what we could uncover) after being sold at auction for over $100,000.
The portrait appeared in a leather-bound album that consisted of 70 prints made by the renowned Swedish photographer.
Gifted to 19th century naval hydrographer Captain George Browing, the album was passed down through generations where it ultimately ended up with its most recent owner. This owner, who took the album to Morphets auctioneers in North Yorkshire, England, said they had no clue of the significance or value of the book.

Hip-Hop Stars Get Their Start

The Bronx-born photographer Lisa Leone started taking pictures of hip-hop artists she knew in her teens and twenties. “There was a sense of community back then, a real feeling of creativity and connectivity,” she said. Leone photographed a fresh-faced Snoop Dogg while he was making his first music video, and Nas while he was recording his first album, “Illmatic.” “When I was in the recording session for ‘Illmatic,’ there was definitely a feeling that something special was about to happen,” she told me. “I think you can see it in the faces of Premier and Q-Tip.”
