The Museum of the City of New York’s current exhibit “City As Canvas” features photography of graffiti from the 70′s and 80′s and the work of artists such AS Keith Haring and Lee Quiñones. The show has been up since February, but Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is still angry about it, the Wall Street Journal reports.
"He looked at me like I was crazy. Most of my lovers do, and that’s partly why they love me, and partly why they leave."
"I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake, you know?"
La Jetée (1962), dir. by Chris Marker
"It’s both a burden and a blessing to feel everything as deeply as I do."
"Being born a woman is an awful tragedy. Yes, my consuming desire to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, bar room regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording—all is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yet, God, I want to talk to everybody I can as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night."
fuck every single time that last line gets quoted without the rest
this is important and more people need to understand this
"I trust people too much, and the other tragedy is I can’t say no."
