“My pictures must first be beautiful, but that beauty is not enough. I strive to convey an underlying edge of anxiety, of isolation, of fear. ” — Crewdson
Inbox me something interesting. Question. Statement. Confession. Anything you like. Anon is on.
”Alright, I have an admittedly insane idea, but if I don’t ask you this it’s just, uh, you know, it’s gonna haunt me the rest of my life.”
”Um… I want to keep talking to you, y’know. I have no idea what your situation is, but, uh, but I feel like we have some kind of, uh, connection.” Right?”
”Yeah, me too.”
”Yeah, right, well, great. So listen, so here’s the deal. This is what we should do. You should get off the train with me here in Vienna, and come check out the capital.”
”Come on. It’ll be fun. Come on.”
”What would we do?”
”Umm, I don’t know. All I know is I have to catch an Austrian Airlines flight tomorrow morning at 9:30 and I don’t really have enough money for a hotel, so I was just going to walk around, and it would be a lot more fun if you came with me. And if I turn out to be some kind of psycho, you know, you just get on the next train…Alright, alright. Think of it like this: jump ahead, ten, twenty years, okay, and you’re married. Only your marriage doesn’t have that same energy that it used to have, y’know. You start to blame your husband. You start to think about all those guys you’ve met in your life and what might have happened if you’d picked up with one of them, right? Well, I’m one of those guys. That’s me y’know, so think of this as time travel, from then, to now, to find out what you’re missing out on. See, what this really could be is a gigantic favor to both you and your future husband to find out that you’re not missing out on anything. I’m just as big a loser as he is, totally unmotivated, totally boring, and, uh, you made the right choice, and you’re really happy.”
”Let me get my bag.”
”Oh, God, why didn’t we exchange phone numbers and stuff? Why didn’t we do that?”
”Because we were young and stupid.”
”Do you think we still are?”
”I guess when you’re young, you just believe there’ll be many people with whom you’ll connect with. Later in life, you realize it only happens a few times.”
”And you can screw it up, you know, misconnect.”
”I feel close to you.”
”But sometimes, I don’t know? I feel like you’re breathing helium and I’m breathing oxygen.”

Rule 4: Actually tell them you tagged them
First, I’m going to post my 11 questions, and tag a few of you whose responses I’d enjoy reading. Do not feel obligated to participate. Below that, I will answer the questions that were asked in the post I was tagged in. kay-el-em iamnotavegetable kittens-n-glitter crippledbastard underskies fuqbitchesgetmonet
1. What is your idea of perfect happiness?
2. What is your greatest fear?
3. What do you consider the most overrated virtue?
4. When and where were you happiest?
5. What is your current state of mind?
6. What do you consider your greatest achievement?
7. What’s a perfect way to spend the day with a guy/girl you like?
8. What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
9. What are your biggest turn-ons, with regards to the opposite sex?
10. Who are your favorite heroes of fiction?
11. What would your motto be?
1. What pop-star (past or present) do you wish you could be best friends with?
Freddie Mercury. An introverted man with a sharp wit, who dealt with sadness through humor, had diverse interests, came alive on the stage, and was a closet romantic deep at heart. Yes, Freddie and I share a lot in common. Also, Queen are probably my all-time favorite band.
2. Do you have a favorite scar on your body?
The one I got when Ben and Eric knocked into me on the street, and I drunkenly stumbled over a curb with a burrito in my hands. I got that in Oct. 2012, and it’s still there.
3. What’s the last album you listened to all the way through?
The Gorillaz debut album. First time I’ve ever listened to it.
4. What annoys you most about The Millennials? What makes you proud?
This is tricky. Most demographers maintain that the “Millennial” generation are all those born between 1983 and 2000, or 1985 and 2000. How much do I have in common with a 14-year-old, really? It’s tough. I’d say I’m most annoyed by short attention spans. People no longer have the patience for anything longer than 140 characters, or any form of media or conversation that doesn’t grab their attention within 30 seconds. I’m most proud of our idealism and emphasis on teamwork.
Notice I didn’t say “narcissism” for the “annoyed about” part. That’s because—while millennials are narcissistic—they aren’t significantly more narcissistic than previous generations, and they sure as FUCK aren’t more narcissistic than the Baby Boomers. The only difference is that, because of advances in technology, millennials have more venues to preen and ask for attention. You better goddamn well believe that if Instagram had been around at Woodstock, it would’ve been the most selfied event in history.
5. How much coffee do you drink every day?
I’ve actually drank coffee every day this week, but normally, I NEVER do. It leaves me feeling too wired and jacked up.
6. If you had an unlimited Amazon gift-card for just ONE item, what would you buy right now?
I’m tempted to cheat and say something like “books”, and then buy a whole bunch of different books. But let’s say “food” (or some specific foodstuff), since food is expensive up here and that would cut my costs by a lot.
7. Do you think there’s a meaning to life?
I think we’re part of a greater wisdom than we can truly understand. The balance we see on this planet (whether it’s night and day, or being *exactly* the right distance away from the sun, etc) is pretty remarkable, and there have been so many “coincidences” or interesting connections I’ve made throughout my life, that I have to conclude that there is some sort of energy (karmic or otherwise) underpinning everything.
8. Give me your favorite quote from a book/movie.
“I’ll agree to the fisting, but I’d really like to claim your ass, Anastasia. But we’ll wait for that. Besides…your ass will need training.” – Fifty Shades of Grey
(This is an impossibly hard question)
(No pun intended with “hard” lololo)
9. What’s the last meal you’d ever eat if you were on death-row?
10. Do you want to be a ghost after you die?
Sure, if I can float around and do/see whatever I want. If I’m tied to a specific building, maybe not so much. I need to be a mobile ghost, man.
I wanted to share this poster we made for the Graphic Design Festival Breda which was held last month. We designed a typography poster with a visual update of a quote from the movie Fight Club. The poster was one of the winners of the Reflect - Poster Project.
The movie Fight Club was released in 1999, a pre-social media era. Tyler Durden was literally talking about our possessions, and how they can dominate and take over our lives. Fast-forwarding to the present there might be something else that made us slaves to our possessions. Putting Tyler Durden’s statement in a whole new perspective.
