quote of the day

"the God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction:  jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."

-richard dawkins, ‘the god delusion’

bunny jarvis

a friend of mine told me this story over the week-end about jarvis cocker whom she has known for a long time. i’ll try to tell the story as she told me: she used to see jarvis in various parties and such, and at all times jarvis was handling a bottle of krug champagne and a carrot. so at some point my friend asked about the carrot, and jarvis told her that before his claim to fame, he had never had any champagne, deep in england where he comes from beer was the only choice. the first time he had champagne, he though that it was ok but it left him with a rather foul breath, so he went back to drinking beer. then it turned out, that one day he discovered krug, which he liked very much. so the story goes, he decided that he would carry a carrot in his pocket whenever he went out and after every sip of champagne, to balance the acidity, he would take a bite off the carrot to keep his fresh breath! hope my friend’s story is accurate, i love it too much to be disappointed. by pp’

celine sk8

celine trying to be street with daria werbowy and a skateboard, shot by juergen teller…kinda corny but i like it. not sure how i missed this, or graffiti artist kidult’s SK8 tag on the celine paris store, seems like a pretty convenient collab rather than a protest, either way i’m sure celine got some press out of it. by m+m

There is no Life or Death,

Only activity

And in the absolute

Is no declivity.

There is no Love or Lust

Only propensity

Who would possess

Is a nonentity.

There is no First or Last

Only equality

And who would rule

Joins the majority.

There is no Space or Time

Only intensity,

And tame things

Have no immensity.
