Lyrical Tattoos

I like the way tattoos look when they’re photographed.  Much better than they are in reality (in my opinion, she says, hastily). My favorites are “How strange it is to be anything at all” and “You’re just an empty cage girl, if you kill the bird.”

Not The Usual Pastry

The Japanese sensibility is a curious combination of “don’t look” and “look! look!” If you think of these rolls as the sweet roll we order by saying, “I’d like one of those strawberry danishes,” it works better, at least for me. There’s a comment from someone who wants us all to know what the actual names are for the parts of the vagina. When I woke up this morning I had no idea what I would learn. Off to my exercise class, to forget it all in a haze of sweat. Actually we don’t sweat, it’s a senior center.

Book Ban In Chicago Public Schools

“Persepolis” is a graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi, which was also made into a film.  Somehow the Chicago Public Schools believe this book isn’t good teaching material.  Really?


Check out this great article on the matter at Salon:

And here’s a clip, too.

Do Bad Girls Drive In Pink?

This car, a grey Prius, was parked in front of my house for a few days. The seat cover and steering wheel are covered in hot pink chenille. I photographed the interior through a window…didn’t realized just how dirty that window was. There were pink Hello Kitty stickers and an artificial pink flower stuck in the dashboard. I will try and do better if it’s every parked here again.
