just got a chinese burn off a five year old.
my life is so dope.
a kid from my school just got expelled today for pretending to be russian for 8 months. he pretended he couldn’t read, write or talk english he did good in all his classes because he had all the teachers and principles convinced he just moved from russia, so they didn’t make him do any work
salad for dinner? SALAD?! can you people not see that the heavens have opened and we’re all going to drown? I need something much more substantial!
spent yesterday listening to calls with the sexiest man alive.
he was ginger, beardy, and had a vague air of contempt.
I love him.
every time I visit my grandparents, they make me steak.
I think they’re trying to substitute the money they used to give me with food.
don’t worry guys, I still love you (although obviously I love you more when you give me steak)
totally in love with my job, everyone is hilarious, some of them vaguely sexy, and I think I might actually be good at it :)
what the fuck are the odds of that?
The ‘Napalm Girl’, 40 years later
Joe McNally, who was commissioned by LIFE magazine to find and photograph subjects of Pulitzer Prize winning photos, shot Kim Phuc – the girl running from an airborne attack in this devastatingly iconic shot during the Vietnam War.
The original photo was taken by AP photographer Nick Ut, and turned Kim into a propaganda tool for the anti-war movement. Joe had the privilege of meeting and photographing Kim, who had recently given birth to her newborn son. Joe knew to treat the situation with care, since showcasing her scars from the napalm burn was significant.
“For me, doing this assignment reconfirmed so many things I’ve always believed about photography,” says Joe in his blog post “On a Road, 40 Years Ago“. “That photo made on that horrible day was made in less than a second. Yet a lifetime spun on its power. With so many photographs being taken everywhere, easily, and thoughtlessly, it’s easy to forget how powerful they can be, and occasionally are.” (via)
