Rest In Peace, George Michael… sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Q: “George.”
George Harrison: “George [chuckles]. George Michael. George Washington. George Formby. George Benson. [smiles]” - Word assocation, Op Reis, 12 December 1987

“‘Well, I just don’t have a desire to be a pop star. And acting, well that has to be the most boring job in the world, second only to modelling. I really just want to be a musician, somebody who writes songs, who makes music. I don’t really see myself being out there like the George Michaels or the Mick Jaggers. I’m not putting them down at all of course, but they have live performance built right into them. Mick was always the front guy in the Stones and he’s been dancing about, prancing in the moonlight, all his life. Everything he ever does, publicly or privately, is a performance. I used to detest and dread dancing. I just don’t understand it. The furthest I ever went was the Liverpool Leg!’ The message here, clearly, though I was asked not to spell it out and to let 'Them’ just deduce it from the article, is that all offers of any concert tours will be rejected always and in all circumstances!” - From an interview with George Harrison conducted by Nick Dent-Robinson, 1987 [x]



Keith Haring, Untitled (1982)

This piece was inspired by his trips to Brazil and experiences in Candomblé. It is a tribute to the orixá Iemanjá (Yemoja/Yemaya).

“I go to Brazil every year,” says artist Keith Haring, “and there I found out about Candomblé.” One of Haring’s major icons–the mermaid with wings–was adapted from the image of the goddess Yemoja, Orisha of motherhood and the ocean. “I have a lot of friends who are into Santería,” says Haring. “I’m not a formal initiate, but I don’t think you have to be to feel it and understand it.” (NYT, October 12th, 1987)


George Michael - Faith

George Michael’s debut album Faith, released on 30 October 1987, was one of the greatest albums released in my lifetime.

  • what she says: im fine
  • what she means: I can't believe that Matthew Daddario and Harry Shum Jr kissed. I honestly can't fathom that 6'3" Matthew Daddario made out with 5'11" Harry Shum Jr. I cannot process that Matthew Daddario, born on October 1st, 1987, placed his lips on Harry Shum Jr, born on April 28, 1982. Its incredible that 28 year old Matthew Daddario placed his tongue in 34 year old Harry Shum Jr's mouth. Its still so hard to think that Matthew Daddario, born in New York City, passionately kissed Harry Shum Jr, born in Puerto Limon. I honestly can't

If I wasn’t acting, I would own a farm. Not like growing crops but maybe have a few animals like cows, and maybe an alpaca or a llama. I would chop wood all day. I would make a living doing that; it’s, like, an idealistic scenario for me. It’s very contrary to my upbringing, but maybe that’s the appeal to it.

Happy 29th birthday Matthew Daddario (October 1st 1987)
