"...She felt very young; at the same time unspeakably aged. She sliced like a knife through everything; at the same time was outside, looking on. She had a perpetual sense, as she watched taxi cabs, of being out, out, so far out to sea and alone; she had the feeling that it was very, very dangerous to live even one day." (Virginia Woolf)

'Untitled #479'
1975 | Cindy Sherman 
Among Sherman’s earliest works, Untitled #479 (1975) gives evidence of the creative mode that would become her signature.  It also reveals a telling affinity with Warhol’s Photobooth Self-Portraits (ca.1963).  Sherman has identified this composite of 23 wallet-size pictures—made for a class assignment when she was still a student at Buffalo State College—as her “first serious work.”

If Stuntmen from the old movies don’t have your full respect then I just don’t know what to say to you

Yo this so much. At the advent of cinema these people were literally willing to die for their art. It’s crazy, and awesome.

Also if you find this awesome, people go check out a 2006 movie called The Fall, about a 1920’s stuntman’s stay in hospital after a stunt gone wrong.

man things were wacky before color was invented

is nobody going to mention that these are all the same guy; Buster Keaton, one of the sweetest and most creative men in film history who did all of his own stunts and directed almost all of his own films (until things went sour post-1928 but that’s another story)?

also in that last one he wasn’t supposed to miss the building; you are literally seeing a stunt going wrong, but they kept it in the film and built on it, extending the scene to having him falling down the building… after he’d recovered from the injuries he sustained, anyway

YEAH HOW ABOUT THAT

↳ F → feminism & representation
"I certainly came up in an era where women were really making strides and making a point to beat down doors and find their place, and crash through the glass ceiling. And a lot of them did that believing that they had to trade on their femininity and that they had to be a man and tap into whatever they believed was a masculine trait to hang in the boys’ room, to get the "keys to the kingdom" as it were. And what’s beautiful about Jessica Pearson is that she is the next level to that when, really, feminism is about being all that you are and not having to trade one thing for another on your way up, or apologize." - Gina Torres (about her character Jessica Pearson, on Suits)
