wish me luck.

Zeigeist - Tar Heart

I have a shoot tomorrow, and one on Sunday, which means I'm spending my day sourcing nice images. Some are so nice that I can't decide if I'm getting inspired, or if I should just jump off a cliff. Wish me luck. Hopefully I won't need it, though.

you look ridiculous. everyone thinks so.

People that spend a lot of money on their weddings, are everything that's wrong with the world. I'm not against marriage as such; If two monkey retards need judicial confirmation of their delusions, I'm not one to object. After all, it does not have a direct impact on my life. If it did, I would not be a photographer. I would be a marriage monkey retard bounty hunter.

Seriously, who the fuck can eat a cake that size? It's bigger than most Japanese cars. If you MUST invite 200 people to your dumb circus, tell them to bring their own food? Make a cardboard band, then pay one DJ instead of 11 "musicians", and distribute disposable cameras to random people at the wedding. I've said this before: There's no need for you to pay a non-creative moron 4 000 dollars to take pictures of shit that he doesn't care about, just because he owns a digital SLR.

Obviously, one could argue that wedding money should be put to better use, to help less fortunate people, but that part is not what pisses me off. I don't flatter myself to think that I have the right to pass that kind of judgment, since I don't donate to charity either. What pisses me off, is that the spectacle of weddings is so tacky and stupid. People dress the same, use the same locations, eat the same things. The nearest form of creativity would be ties that don't match. And that would never happen. A 5 000 dollar wedding dress could easily be compared to a
5 000 dollar condom. You use it the same amount of times, and if you're a marriage monkey retard, you'll probably pass it on to your children. My point is: It doesn't matter how much money you spend on your wedding, people will still have a blast. So will you.

Hey, remember that time when you looked like fucking idiots? I do. It was that time that was supposed to be the best day of your life.

hate to say I told you so.

my thoughts on people and their racist jokes.

To be honest, I don't really mind jokes that involve my race. Or any other race. However, most people fail to see the distinct difference between "jokes that involve race" and "racist jokes". See, jokes that involve race are smart and on point. Racist jokes are just tacky and unattractive. I'm not even offended by the "race" part, they're more of an insult to my intelligence. I'm offended because the idiot in front of me, thought that I would appreciate something that was clearly below mine, and all rational people's integrity.

Obviously, different people find different things to be funny or smart, but I can only speak for myself, for the same obvious reason. As the listener and possibly the target, you have a responsibility as well. You have to feel out the vibe of the joke, and act accordingly. If the joke is indeed a bit racist, I still don't feel the need to instantly point that out in front of everyone, thus causing a scene. If you do feel the need to say something, be tactical and say it to the person afterwards. That way, you point out the fact that you were offended, without making them feel stupid. I agree, some people deserve to be made fools of sometimes, but if you do choose that line of action, you should know that you're hardly converting anyone. You're placing yourself above everyone else, by publicly announcing the inferiority of that joke. Nobody likes, or respects, people that do that. It just makes you look like a snob.

You also have to consider the fact that maybe the joke wasn't even meant to be racist. Maybe the person just didn't know better. If that's the case, I definitely don't feel the need to get angry. It's like getting mad at a monkey for cheating at chess. It's not like the monkey is evil, he just doesn't know the rules.

I'm just saying, you don't have to get offended every time someone tells a dumb joke involving race. Porn does not necessarily have to be porn, until you start jerking off to it. I want to believe that things like racism have changed for the better, with the help of calm, rational people who tried understanding why a certain problem exists, and then finding the appropriate solution for it. You can't force people to think like you, simply by yelling at them. You can try, but I'm pretty sure it'll have the opposite effect. I guess what I'm trying to say is: If someone in your vicinity tells a stupid, tacky, racist joke, don't start jerking off in front of everyone. It can get awkward.

I just got back from London, after having picked up all my negatives and polaroids. It was nice seeing my buddy Laura, who was kind enough to let me stay with her after everyone else flaked out.
