When we meet,
would it be too much
to ask you for your life story?
Tell me why you cut your hair
the way you do.
Tell me about the first band
you ever really listened to.
Tell me about your favorite
piece of clothing when you were small.
Tell me what you dressed up as
on Halloween when you were five years old.
Tell me how you grew up to be so tall.
Talk to me about your mother and father,
and your grandmothers and grandfathers.
Tell me about your life
and what your parent’s lives were like
before you were born.
Tell me all the embarrassing years.
Tell me who first taught you how to smile.
Tell me the first time a girl made you nervous.
Tell me when you felt insecure.
Tell my why you felt insecure.
Tell me if someone stole
your safety from you,
or if you’ve always spent your life in fear.
Tell me how you found your way
across the country.
Tell me if you like laying here with me.
Tell me what kept you alive
all the times you thought you would die?
And would it be out of line
if I told you
I might cry
the first time we meet
because I’ve never seen
something so lovely
my entire life?
What if I told you
that your voice is
all the old burns
of my past?
Talk to me.
Your voice sounds a lot
so this guy right here is one class-a asshole
he stated, as above, that he had created this artwork
after he gained 100s of RTs and favs, it appeared on my timeline and i recognised it as the work of Vince Low, who created a series of pieces in this style, paying homage to celebrities, mainly actors, with dyslexia
I read through the replies to his tweet, including “wow”s and “i’m so jealous of your art skill”s, and only spotted one other person who realised this was in fact not this guy’s art, though he completely dismissed this person’s comment saying “that guy stole my picture”……
so, me already being sick of this art theft shit, as i see it every day on the web, piped up
and you can read above (excuse the bad quality) that he completely dismissed me, saying i was “jealous”
what angers me most is that he’s getting praise from 100s of people, and they will keep praising him because they won’t see the tweets where me and the one other person pull him up on it
ALSO, I GAVE THE FUCKER PROOF THAT IT WAS NOT HIS WORK. DOWNRIGHT, PROOF FROM AN ONLINE NEWSPAPER ARTICLE THAT THE WORK WAS BY VINCE LOW, AND THE LITTLE DICKHOLE STILL DENIED IT
some may say i’m overreacting, and that i shouldn’t use such foul language, but i am completely sick of this bullshit. i’ve had this happen to me in the past, and it made me less inclined to create art to share on this site.
when you create something you’re proud of, that you put a lot of work into, and someone credits it as their own and people believe them and continue to praise them, even after they’ve been shown proof that they’re lying.. it is one of the most crushing things to ever experience, i know.
so if you experience something like this, it may not make a difference, but you need to at least try to expose the assholes and voice the truth
and please signal boost!!!
we need to try and stop this bullshit, because it is a serious issue.
it gets less better.
The shit they pass off for programming on network TV these days doesn’t hold a candle to this
If anyone is having a bad day, just spend 15 minutes and enjoy this guy’s wisdom after losing his wisdom teeth. I guarantee you’ll be smiling by the end of it.
"You almost hit the unicorn"This is the best thing I’ve ever seen.
when i got mine out last year i was trying to explain to the nurse the evolution of the secondary palet (roof of your mouth) as i woke up and my grandmother goes “oh she’s never been high before” and i think i laughed so hard i sprayed the nurse with blood
