I’m realizing now that you really never deserved me, so why did I want you so badly. Oh man, did I want you with every fiber of my being, ever inch of my skin longed to touch you, every brain cell wanted you around me all the fucking time, but you didn’t really deserve any of it. You still don’t, and you never did.

My review of The Loft

A suspenseful who dun-it film.  The performances by Karl Urban, James Marsden, and Wentworth Miller were brilliant.  From a female perspective it was interesting look into male bonding and friendship. But what really made this film awesome was how they kept the story going. You are constantly trying to guess who dun-it, but at the same time your finding out how important these guys are to each other. The film was well balanced between sexy, sensual, and story telling. I thoroughly enjoyed this film and would recommend it to the appropriate audiences.

Hendrik Jacobus Scholten - Self portrait, 1904

Hendrik Jacobus Scholten (1824 in Amsterdam – 1907 in Heemstede), was a 19th-century painter from the Netherlands.

According to the RKD he was a pupil of Petrus Franciscus Greive and Lambertus Johannes Hansen. In 1852 he became a member of the Royal Academy of Art in Amsterdam, and was a member of the Amsterdam art societies Arti et Amicitiae, Kunstbevorderend Genootschap V.W., and Vereeniging Sint Lucas. He was also a member of art societies in other towns, such as the Pulchri studio in the Hague, the Schilder- en teekengenootschap Kunstliefde in Utrecht, and Kunst zij ons doel in Haarlem. He became art conservator of the Teylers Stichting in 1872, which manages the art collection of the Teylers Museum. In that capacity he wrote a catalog of the museum’s collection, that was published in 1904.
He painted several paintings that hang in the museum’s galleries, as well as decorations in the Teyler’s fundatiehuis, where he lived and worked from 1863 until his death.

He is known for various drawings, illustrations and paintings, including landscapes, flower and pastoral scenes, and was a follower of Pieter de Hooch in his interior scenes. He contributed illustrations for the Dutch history book “De voornaamste geschiedenissen van Noord-Nederland” by Jacob van Lennep. Works by him hang in the Rijksmuseum and the Amsterdam Museum. He became the teacher of Jacobus van Looy.

Will the good boy ever appear in my poetry?
The one who did everything right
The one who told me I was smart and funny and beautiful and actually meant it,
The one who asked me if he could kiss me before he did it,
The one that didn’t lie,
The one who told me that night was all about me,
and stroked my hair as I cried about all the other ones.
He never tried to touch me anywhere but the top of my head that night. 
Usually they have to break me to appear in my poems,
but maybe I’ll make a special exception,
and this time I’ll write about the one that I broke.
