Anderson photographed men who called to her or whistled her on the street. In her artist statement she writes about one experience,
“As I walked along Houston Street with my fully automated Nikon. I felt armed, ready. I passed a man who muttered ‘Wanna fuck?’ This was standard technique: the female passes and the male strikes at the last possible moment forcing the woman to backtrack if she should dare to object. I wheeled around, furious. ‘Did you say that?’ He looked around surprised, then defiant ‘Yeah, so what the fuck if I did?’ I raised my Nikon, took aim began to focus. His eyes darted back and forth, an undercover cop? CLICK.”
Anderson takes the power from her male pursuers, allowing them nothing more than the momentary fear that their depravity has just been captured in a picture.

This guy’s awesome when he’s not handing out free service to hurricane victims, too.
Here is a man offering free medical care to New Yorkers in need. Somebody find this filthy socialist and let him know that this is the kind of crap ruining America.
My NYers, check this out if you need any care and do not have the means. pass it on to others!
Lupe Fiasco draws excellent parallels between blackface comedy and entertainers like Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne.
this is some of the realest shit i’ve ever seen
And suddenly someone redeems rap for me. I need to go find some more of this dude’s work, it’s pretty good stuff.
“They’re young, so they’re malleable.”
Easily the best line. On a somewhat related note, that’s why pewdiepie shouting rape was/is a bad thing.
s’good, give it a listen.
Playable electronic Tetris game cased inside a real pumpkin, with perforations and LEDs as pixels:
More about how and why it was but together at HaHa Bird:
One of my habits is to write down all the crazy, fleeting ideas I have, then go back to review later rather than judging right off the bat, or even worse, forgetting them. Earlier in the month I was looking through that idea notepad and found “Make Tetris Pumpkins” from sometime last year. My original plan had been to make forms to shape pumpkins into Tetris pieces as they grew, then stack them together for Halloween. Since Halloween was only a few weeks away and it was too late to start growing pumpkins, I thought “Why not make a pumpkin you can play Tetris on instead?”

While a liquid soap dispenser is very convenient, a good old solid bar of soap is a much ‘greener’ option, as it’s more concentrated and doesn’t require a plastic bottle. But squishy, wet soap bars next to the basin are a pain, and they harbour bacteria too. So, what to do? Young designerNathalie Stämpfli has come up with a very satisfactory solution with her Soap Flakes soap holder. It takes an ordinary bar of soap, and shaves off tiny soap flakes every time you want to wash your hands.
Leo Caillard & Alexis Persani - Street Stone (2012)
“Caillard photographed the statues in the buff and then used his friends as models for the flannels, cuff jeans, and Ray Bans that the statues would wear. Persani then combined them to create a startlingly natural-looking series.”
could you make this rebloggable cos this rules (yr pizza analogies are awesome)
I can, and it is surprising how many things relate directly to pizza
What if instead of throwing your pencil stubs away you could plant them and have them grow into something delicious, beautiful, and fun? What if pencils could grow?
Sprout is a pencil with a seed inside. When it’s too short to use, it can be planted at home, at the office, or in the classroom. (If you’re really excited to plant Sprout, you can do so before it’s too short.)
i think think this idea is reallyreally cute and i couldn’t find a post with pictures and information so i wanted to make one! please donate to this kickstarter, i would love to see this thing become reality. It’s at $14,619 and needs $25,000 — and it’s just 9 days left!!
