How it feels when you’re undiagnosed.
Scanning lots of new work; more to come.
My darling, you are allowed to fail without being a failure. You are allowed to make mistakes without becoming one. More opportunities will present themselves, you will find hope again.
So you say “Capitalism is the only system that works?”
This is such a ridiculously good way to show how it all ‘works.’ Amazing shot.
Wow. Yes. Such a fucking accurate representation of capitalism at work.
HAPPENING NOW (10.9.14): Another young black man, 18-year old Vonderrit Myers, has been killed by a police officer, miles away from Ferguson. St Louis (STL) is turnt the fuck up right now. They literally ran the police out of the neighborhood, and are currently marching around the city. Details are still emerging, but from eye witness accounts, the young man was shot 16 times after the cop mistook a sandwich for a gun. My heart and soul are with the people of STL tonight. See you on Friday for #FergusonOctober. #staywoke #blacklivesmatter (PT 1)
RIP Vonderrit Myers, the victim of tonight’s police shooting. We fighting for you now too.
What the fuck. “After the officer mistook a sandwich for a gun.” When will this nightmare end?
THIS IS SO IMPORTANT TO KNOW!
This is a life-size pre-cast clay sculpture of a naked fat woman. The model is Julie Srika. The sculptor is Ramon Sierra. I think it’s beautiful and important. Breathtaking, even. Two days ago I shared it on Facebook, with the permission of both the model and the artist. Many people responded to it as I did. Facebook then deleted the thread and removed the photo from the model’s account, citing it as being in violation of their “community standards.” Appeals to Facebook have yet to be answered.
I think this is a disturbing anti-art stance, particularly vexing, considering Facebook allows far more sexually suggestive photos and sanctions pages designed to promote bigotry and bullying. Yet an amazing piece of art depicting a fat woman in proud non-sexual repose must go.
So while this is not the traditional fare for Uppity Fatty, I’m posting it here so more people can see it without the small-minded interference of Facebook’s double-standards.
