I am a street photographer in New York City. Several months ago, I was approached by a representative of DKNY who asked to purchase 300 of my photos to hang in their store windows “around the world.” They offered me $15,000. A friend in the industry told me that $50 per photo was not nearly enough to receive from a company with hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue. So I asked for more money. They said “no.”Today, a fan sent me a photo from a DKNY store in Bangkok. The window is full of my photos. These photos were used without my knowledge, and without compensation.I don’t want any money. But please REBLOG this post if you think that DKNY should donate $100,000 on my behalf to the YMCA in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. That donation would sure help a lot of deserving kids go to summer camp. I’ll let you guys know if it happens.

Racism only exists in the eyes of the ignorant.  Don’t people realize that Ghandi Mohandas put an end to rascism in America in the early part of the 18th century?  Obviously not since professors keep qouting him.  I don’t mean to sound holier than thou, but sometimes i think I have a better handle on the cultural constructions of the modern world.

Flux, Whiter, and Change Its State

So, as a dyed in the wool fan of Doctor Who (both classic and revival), I had some very pressing questions about “The Wedding of River Song.” This post is not for those who enjoy spoilers. And don’t say “spoilers” in River Song’s voice in your head, I don’t brook that foolishness.

  1. Why would the Silence even bother to grow and condition River Song when they had the Astronaut Suit all along to carry out the task?
  2. Why was she needed to inhabit the Astronaut Suit at all?
  3. Why, when she was forced to go into the Suit against her own free will, would she be put on trial for the crime when the blame lies solely with Madame Kovarian and other members of the Silence?
  4. If Dorium Maldovar is rich enough to keep and maintain his head in nice conditions, why doesn’t he just pay to get his body back, or obtain a new one?
  5. Why would the crew of the Teselecta purposefully don the disguise of an individual whose demise was common knowledge?
  6. Why would the crew of the Teselecta purposefully give themselves over to great personal risk by inhabiting a human-sized robot, when an unmanned robot under remote control or automation could perform the same task?
  7. Why would the crew of the Teselecta hand over such an expensive piece of equipment just to be destroyed?
  8. Why would the crew of the Teselecta remain silent (hah) about the Doctor’s survival?
  9. Why would the Teselecta be susceptible to a funeral pyre?
  10. Why would a game of chess permit a forfeit with no penalty, when the consequence of losing a game is death?
  11. Why would someone with a intimate knowledge of the Headless Monks’ Catacombs be unaware of a booby trap, or simply foolhardy enough to not account for them?
  12. Although it is a touching scene, why would the Doctor be disheartened at the fact that the Brigadier was dead at a certain point in time, when the Doctor could visit him in any other time that he pleased?
  13. Was the marriage ceremony completely necessary in convincing River of the Doctor’s motives?
  14. Why would the compressed time effect combine all of the cultural mores of humanity throughout the ages, modifying them into a combined culture?
  15. Why would the compressed time be perceived as linear to those experiencing it?
  16. Why is there no evidence of Earth’s future in the compression or time, nor any evidence, Silents excepted, of the several alien incursions that have taken place in Earth’s history?
  17. Why was the Earth also not constantly forming itself and being destroyed when it was in compressed time?
  18. Why would the compression of time effect the human memory of linear time?
  19. If the Doctor’s death was truly a fixed point in time, why was it so easily circumvented by one individual?
  20. Why have none of the time-space vortex’s previously established protections (the Reapers, or even the Silence) done nothing to rectify the paradox of the Doctor’s survival?
  21. Why is a fixed point in recorded history confused with a fixed point in the physical web of time?
  22. How could a transmission made in compressed time make it through to a zone of linear time, let alone be understood and replied to in a similarly intelligible fashion?
  23. Why would the effects of tampering with a fixed point in space-time (the Doctor’s death) be limited solely to the Earth?
  24. Is the question “Doctor who?” the oldest question in the universe because the Doctor’s identity is somehow important to the universe’s existence, or because his travels have spanned the entirety of the universe’s history and the question had just come up repeatedly?
  25. Why would the answer to either of those scenarios be detrimental?
  26. If the Silence were dedicated to not having the Question answered, but the Question’s Answer will bring the Doctor’s personal silence (i.e. his death), then why bother to try and kill him at all, or be so against the Answer’s unveiling?

In case this becomes huge…

…I just wanted to say that this was my idea and nobody else’s.

merlin:

awesomepeoplehangingouttogether:

The cast of the original Star Wars trilogy

“ARB,” I believe the parlance goes.
Thing is: we should store copies of this photo in every library and every time capsule.
Because, I think this may be very important.

How I Got Into Gaming

So, I’ve been part of Podcast 17 for a while now I’ve been one of the newer co-hosts at Podcast 17, a weekly show dedicated towards following all aspects of the Source gaming community.

Recently, William (the show’s founder and primary host) asked all of the co-hosts to write and submit editorials on how they each found their way into gaming.

The result: about 1100 words that I’m very proud of with the title of "On an X-Wing and a Prayer." Without spoiling too much, I’ll just say that Star Wars was very heavily involved!

So what are you waiting for? Go read it! Now!
