A straight-up #yoink from @kit_king I felt compelled to share. 
Her sentiments:

"Build your life and career around your passions. Anything else is a slow suicide. Everyone has to make sacrifices. Make your sacrifices mean something."

I wasn’t going to post anything 9/11-related today, but as I was flipping through the June issue of Juxtapoz, I came across this eerily beautiful photograph by Matt Weber. 

I had just turned 21 years old the month before and was still living in New Mexico. I woke up for work a little earlier than usual to a quiet apartment, as my girlfriend at the time had already left to her job for the day. I picked up my cell phone to parse through messages and missed calls from the night before only to find that an unusual amount of them were recent and belonged to my mother.

I called her and she very hastily urged me to turn the TV on and watch the news. We both sat silently on the phone for about five minutes, like we were watching the trailer footage for an upcoming movie that was soon to be released in theaters. The silence was finally broken by letting her know that I love her and that I had to begin getting ready for work. 

The rest of my day was spent in a complete daze as I drove around town delivering pizzas, attempting to process what I had seen. 

I still haven’t forgotten.

I’m happy to finally finish this little guy! 
#dumbunny is a completely #handmade #supersculpey #oneoff painted with #acrylics and just shy of 5” in height. I based it off of an old college notebook doodle I drew back in the day and is more or less a #prototype for more dumbunnies down the line.

And, yes, those are real #whiskers.

I’m always on the lookout for more (and especially newer) #reggae and I’ve gotta give #credit where credit is due: Thanks to @fallontonight for introducing me to the #music of #cronixx. I’m loving his album, #dreadandterrible.

I figure since the cats get free rein to customize our furniture, I might as well put my own stank on it. 
A #tooth on our dining room table.
