First of all I think that your work is amazing :) Secondly I'd like to ask your opinion about a short passage which I read in The Picture of Dorian Gray: the painter feels like he has put too much of himself into the portrait and so he starts to believe that it is a mistake to think that the passion one feels in creation is ever really shown in the work one creates, "form and colour tell us of form and colour, that is all". As an artist do you think passion is always hidden from one's work?
I think my work is too much of an emotional chaos to hide such feelings.
Mr. Pettet, I think what you are doing is absolutely profound and inspiring. 'Artschool Stole my Virginity' goes beyond sexuality and art; it describes humanity and individuality, and I think that's super important.
Are you ever going to have sex? You mentioned in the Dazed interview that Art was your Sexuality? How can you say that when you havent tried.
Sex has never appealed to me, I can be attracted to both men and women but it doesn’t make me want to fuck them. I have never felt the sexual urge as most people do. I do on the other hand feel it with my Art, this ultimate desire to create above anything else and the completion of a great piece of work is like the peak of an orgasm.
The Virgin emblem traditionally symbolizes the pure love of all things. And Virgo is the expression of purity and perfection, the Virgin of honour and unconditional love. There is the inherent virtue in Virgo that smells of fresh heaven dust. And this is like the purity of angels and heavenly dwellers, who are partners in service like Virgo.
Who actually comments below YouTube videos, the amount of uneducated shit that reaches top comment is ridiculous. Hate, racism, prejudice, sexism, homophobia and transphobia etc is fucking everywhere on YouTube. The sweaty juvenile little fucks who sit behind there computer screens need to be shipped off to bermuda triangle and fucking pick a dictionary up on the way
Do you ever feel like your your investing so much time into something that might not ever happen? Like your never gonna get the days back of your life that you spent planning this said event? But then you just sit and do nothing because you think at least your not wasting time when inevitably thats all your doing.
Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.
Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (EDIT: i’ve discovered that the Brown family wishes for any and all photos of Michael lying in the streets to be removed. please respect this and do so)
There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident), that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.
According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.
Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)
The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]
Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.
It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.
And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.
