Pet Peeve

Kids these days don’t know their 90’s flowers. Floral prints were Grunge, not “Flower Power” That was the Neo-Hippie look of the later 90’s. I don’t want to go on etsy or ebay and see things labeled wrong. 


The last thing any government should do is impose a ban on protests - not least on those against the fascist state of Israel. The people will not be silenced. It’s no surprise though, coming from the French government.

Israel has now killed over 300 Palestinians in Gaza in the space of 11 days as it continues targeting civilians. At least 50,000 people have had to flee their homes as the Israeli military continues its terror attacks from ground, air and sea.

“Are you two in a relationship?”
“(Man) No, we are just friends. We know each other from a music video she shot while studying media; I was chosen as the main character. She is overly enthusiastic, so we go to exhibitions a lot together. I am learning a lot from both the exhibitions and her.”
“(Woman) He is young but always modest. Right now we are each single, but even if we each date someone else we would still hang out together like this.”

“둘이 연인 관계세요?”
“(남자) 아뇨. 아는 누나와 동생 사이에요. 예전에 누나가 미디어 공부하면서 뮤직비디오를 찍을 때 제가 남자 주인공으로 발탁돼서 알게 됐어요. 열정이 넘치는 누나라 같이 전시회에 자주 다니고, 저도 많이 배우고 있어요.”
“(여자) 이 친구는 어리지만 항상 겸손해요. 지금은 각자 솔로지만, 서로 애인이 생겨도 우린 이렇게 같이 놀러 다닐 거예요.” 


“I’m a model; personally I think there are two kinds of models. The really handsome ones can get along fine without putting forth much effort, and the moderately handsome ones really need to work hard at improving themselves in order to be successful. I’m in the latter category, so I really need to work hard. Modeling is the sort of field that in order to get good results you need to be diligent.”
“Then, what sort of things do you often do to get those kind of results?”
“First, I work out really hard. Actually, if you see me naked it’s not so bad.”

“제 직업이 모델인데, 제가 생각하기에 모델엔 두 종류가 있어요. 정말 잘 생겨서 스스로 가꾸는걸 게을리 해도 되는 부류가 있고, 좀 적당히 생겨서 정말 열심히 스스로를 가꿔야 하는 부류가 있어요. 전 후자라서 정말 많은 노력이 필요해요. 그래야지 좋은 결과가 있는 그런 분야거든요.”
“그럼 어떤 노력을 주로 하세요?”
“일단 운동을 정말 열심히 해야 해요. 사실 저 벗겨보면 좀 괜찮아요.”

"Passengers. This is not a shoe. This is disorder. This is size ten chaos. This— see this? This is death. In this locomotive we call home there is one thing that’s between our warm hearts and the bitter cold. Clothing? Shields? No. Order. Order is the barrier that holds back the frozen death. We must all of us on this train of life remain in our allotted station. We must each of us occupy our particular, preordained position. Would you wear a shoe on your head? Of course you wouldn’t wear a shoe on your head. A shoe doesn’t belong on your head. A shoe belongs on your foot. A hat belongs on your head. I am a hat. You are a shoe. I belong on the head. You belong on the foot. Yes? So it is." - Snowpiercer (2013)
