These, for me, are the two most depressing paintings in western history. They were painted by post-impressionist Henry de Toulouse-Lautrec, a man who, due to inbreeding, was born with a genetic disorder that prevented his legs from growing after they were broken. After being so thoroughly mocked for is appearance, he became an alcoholic, which is what eventually caused his institutionalization and death. His only known romantic relations were with prostitutes.

And then he paints something like this which is so beautiful and tender and sentimental. It seems like the couple in bed really loves each other—cares about each other. Wakes up happy to look at each other. And I see that love and passion and I wonder how lonely he must have been. I wonder how he could paint something like this without it breaking his heart. 

Maybe they say artists should create what they know, not because its unbelievable when they extend themselves beyond their experiences, but because when they pull it off with such elegance, it’s so damn unbearable to look at. I hate thinking of Lautrec, wondering about the lovers he created and knowing it was beyond his experience. Creating something that he knows is beautiful and knows he’ll never really understand.

Death Grips | Get Got

"Get get get get
Got got got got
Blood rush to my head
Lit hot like
Poppin’ off the
Fuckin’ block knot
Clockin’ wrist slit
Now watch me top off-“

Does he want a championship or does he want to pad out his bank account with max contracts?


This summer’s NBA free agency is gonna ultimately determine whether or not I’m going to have Carmelo Anthony as my favorite player. I’ve been a fan of him for years and always rooted for him over LeBron since the beginning. Their rivalry is probably the best I’ve ever been alive to see (blah blah Larry Bird/Magic Johnson I wasn’t alive for it don’t cry about it). It’s the battle between the most athletic and physically imposing player the league has ever seen in LeBron James against the part-time chub master who happens to be really gifted offensively. They’re always being compared to and clearly LeBron has overshadowed Melo with his MVPs and championships. Melo even ended up third in their draft because Detroit decided to gamble on Darko and well that ended up being a disaster and Detroit has sucked ever since they won in ‘04. One of the primary reasons I like Melo is that he really developed the technical aspects of his game and he has one of the prettiest jump shots I’ve seen. But one thing I’ve questioned is what motivates him. Is he into the money and fame or is he into basketball and championships? This summer will decide that for me. 

This free agency I am crossing all my fingers and toes for him to go to Chicago. Imagine this starting 5: Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Carmelo Anthony, Taj Gibson, Joakim Noah. That is like some grade A hacks right there, there is pretty much no weakness in that unit. Jimmy Butler can only get better at his perimeter shooting after he KILLED me in FG PCT this past year in fantasy basketball. Nigga put some glasses on if you have to, wow. But to be fair, he does play like 45 minutes like every fucking game. He’s some typa monster for sure. 

If he goes to the Lakers. I will officially lose all my respect for him. It’s not even because I’ve always hated the Lakers (despite living in LA my whole life). It’s about him going to play in the west side spotlight and the only real motivation is to get that max contract. There’s no chance of him winning shit over there, it’s clearly about the money. He’s rich as fuck already and he’s still going after those max contracts? You get endorsements too probably oh my god. Do you even care about championships or are you just full of shit and after the money? I can’t root for a greedy bitch who has no aspirations of overcoming the shitty criticisms he gets from casual fans. Sure he’s not the best defensive player, a player can have weaknesses right? His weakness would be minimized in the Chicago team anyway. This guy argued with me once that he plays zero defense and doesn’t rebound. I had him for fantasy last year, and the dude got me over 8 rebs a game. Watch some games before you even speak to me about basketball dude smh. 

If he stays in New York. I won’t necessarily hate him, but I’ll definitely not be happy about it. I’ll have to think long and hard about whether I’ll wanna be a Knicks fan once again because I’m pretty over them. They traded Tyson away (fine, he’s overpaid but he’s one of the team’s most likable players). They still have Bargnani because well, they were stupid enough to sign him and now they’re stuck with his pathetic defense and overall softness. And everyone thought he was supposed to be the next Dirk Nowitzki. I feel like I’ll end up becoming a Blazers fan if he stays in New York. That’s a legit team right there, I’d buy either Lillard or Aldridge’s jersey once I’ve made my decision. I also recently lost my Knicks snapback, so like, whatever. Another thing: I don’t care for Fisher as the head coach and I’m not all over Phil Jackson’s nuts like everyone else is. 

Basketball is serious business. It’s pretty much as heartbreaking as Game of Thrones except the NBA is much more predictable and no one dies in it. 

Melo in a nutshell if he joins the Lakers or stays with the Knicks:


…except it won’t be that funny to me.

Bleached | Dead Boy

I’ll keep on living for the dead boy that I love.

Pick up the pieces to the heart you once had.
Escape your past by never looking back.
Afraid of falling but I know you dream of love.
Then maybe you can start to feel
What it’s like to be alive.
