to make a toast to life



fleetwoodmacfans:

At 15 and a half, I fell in love with a really handsome boy in Arcadia High School in Los Angeles. Thank God for that, because even though my relationship with Lindsey didn’t really end well, the passionate feeling I had for this man — who I still know very well, and, in my own way, will always be crazy about— he brought out this love song.

i’ve had some brief flirtations with super 8 and 16mm, and i really wish they were more viable in today’s world. i’d love to shoot more super 8, but the support is really hard to come by. finding a good, perfectly working projector is close to impossible and the film / development costs are through-the-roof.
hopefully i get the chance to get back into it before it’s too late. i have about 3 reels of super 8 from the summer after high school that have been ripped and spliced a lot from watching them on shitty projectors too many times. they’re blurred / shaky / inconsistent, like my memories. the epitome of the snapshot
ferrania is supposedly restarting color positive super 8 production soon (along with 16mm/35mm/120 which is awesome), so i know what i’ll be doing if i find a big bag of money on the ground!
i’m very fortunate to live in a time period where i can choose between digital and analog for many purposes, including artistic expression. it’s a lot of fun. both have things to offer.

Just had someone yell “I’m all about that bass baby!” at me. Welp so much for an empowering song. Boys somehow found a way to put it into their cat calling.

Absolutely. Young artists have no sense of history. Something else is happening right now with younger artists and their sense of history. It’s as if what preceded them is of no value or never really happened. I’m always amazed when I talk to women artists in college who have no interest in feminist art. There seems to be this frightening, alarming return to the modernist notion of the self-contained, genius originator. Young artists in particular don’t want to acknowledge antecedents. I’m not really interested in recuperating history and I’m certainly not interested in romantic nostalgia for the past, but I’m very aware of the history of art that preceded me. Every artist works through history. I mean, painters are always painting against the history of painting.

Everything has been done a million times. Sometimes you use it and it’s yours; another time you do it and it’s still theirs.
