Why don’t any of my followers talk to me am I intimidating or lame which is it
People don’t message me that often either : V
They just have more important things to do I guess ?
get out your VCR’s it’s time to watch The Prince of Egypt. or you can watch it here.
please don’t watch exodus: gods and kings because it’s icky and racist. you deserve better. you deserve the prince of egypt.
May I also add that The Prince of Egypt’s accuracy has been approved by not only Christianity, but by Judaism and Islam as well! So it’s actually the most accurately told version out there!
This is beautiful and it’s amazing to me that it had such a positive outcome and not lifelong hateful grudges, which is probably what these attackers deserved.
This is perfect and beautiful and amazing
Yep, those are tears coming down. This is one of the most beautiful pieces I ever read.
Damn, the level of compassion, strength and understanding you’d need to have in order to do this..
There was a lost mishandled when it comes to the Rwanda Genocides but this side of it, the idea to bring victims and perpetrators together and help them find peace and forgiveness and a way to not only come to terms with what happened but also to make it into a way to celebrate humanity… that aspect of it, that healing side to it that has nothing to do with retribution or punishment and that aims to provide help and closure to victims and means of atonement and repentance to perpetrators… that’s one of the great legacies of post-genocide Rwanda.
these photos were taken earlier this year when I attended school in Tennessee (my 4th year to be exact)
I don’t know if you can tell but I was very sad at the time…
Sad is actually an understatement… I had actually never thought about suicide before going to a religious school… But it’s just something about being surrounded by people who care about everyone else but the ones they are supposed to care about… People who set out to “help the broken” but who were too blinded by their own hypocrisy to help the broken ones right under their stuck up noses… I never would have guessed I would be sleeping in my car and in hotels all while trying to get my education at a place that literally hated me… Or the idea of what I represented.
This piece, “Overhead” was one done in response to being told “create a work about how you are feeling”
At the time I felt so empty and lonely that it physically hurt…
"Overhead" represents the idea of a dark cloud overtaking a persons’ life… How the feelings of sadness can have a physical weight of it’s own… A presence if you will…
I spent 5 days/nights (even after the piece was due) to finish this room sized installation. It consisted of over 500 fishing lines attached to a 15 x 20 ft grid and pounds of scrap bubble wrap …
I did not finish the piece on time even when I asked for an extension… I just wanted to do my best..in my mind, it would all pay off…
It didn’t. My professor: a racist homophobic sexist conservative man took it as his opportunity to put me in my place… To break me… he didn’t even look at the piece once it was done.. It was up for a week… He was so mad that I had finished it.. At the end of the year he failed me….and ONLY me..an advanced sculpture student who had always made A’s and who had received scholarships for my work…
Fast forward to now… I wish I could have told the person I was a couple months ago that everything was going to be ok…
I’m now in NYC. Things are not perfect (I don’t have a degree after almost finishing school) but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Tennessee broke me… and even thinking about “Overhead” brings back terrible feelings and resentment… But I’m so thankful it did. I was meant to be pushed away from that place.
I’m free.“Just like a dark cloud everything passes.”
Done and done.

You have no idea how much this cheered me up just now.
I for one, think this is a major improvement. Look how empowered he is! And it’s relevant to the character as someone who is powered by the sun, he’d want to maximize the amount of sunlight he receives, right? It’s not like it makes sense for him to cover himself from chin to toe.
In fact, I think some strappy sandals might be an improvement.
strappy high heeled sandals would increase his height making him closer to the sun. and if wonderwoman can fight in heels it can’t be that hard, right?
Doing my part to improve everyone’s TF2 experience
THERE WAS A CACTUS ADDED A WEEK OR SO AGO
