Well, I’m 6’3 and he didn’t seem too far away so I’d say maybe 5’11 or 6’ ft.
I want to do more nude shoots, ever since shooting with Ryan McGinley, I’ve fallen in love with my body more, not only because I look good, but because I feel empowered.
I remember when I was a hopeless romantic. I was always searching for love outside myself and in other people. Until I learned that people are fucked up and that the only type of love you ever really need is for yourself. Holla @ me
75 years ago, on this date, Billie Holiday recorded a song that Time Magazine would call song of the century: Strange Fruit, a song written about a lynching in the South.
Holiday first performed the song at Cafe Society in 1939. She said that singing it made her fearful of retaliation but, because its imagery reminded her of her father, she continued to sing the piece making it a regular part of her live performances. Because of the poignancy of the song, Josephson drew up some rules: Holiday would close with it; the waiters would stop all service in advance; the room would be in darkness except for a spotlight on Holiday’s face; and there would be no encore. During the musical introduction, Holiday would stand with her eyes closed, as if she were evoking a prayer.
this song is too good.
