he looks so proud as well, it’s like “fuck the oscars I can move my eyebrows”
Lamborghini Aventador Roadster Galaxy
For some, owning a Lamborghini Aventador is the final destination. For others, the outrageously expensive supercar is just another platform for them to customize. The folks at Deluxe Supercar Club are a part of the latter group, and wrapped this 2-door drop-top in a head turning Galaxy print.

I need this in my life

I’m not a car aficionado, but daaamn that’s purdy

Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8
I can almost never read graffiti. It doesn’t even look like sloppy or stylized letters. It looks like language, but not any recognizable alphabet. At college, somebody told me that graffiti has its own script. Graffiti artists are inducted into some sort of graffiti society where they learn this arcane set of letters and logograms that the serious graffiti artists all over the world understand.
It just occurred to me that I don’t think I’ve ever read anything in these years to back up that claim, and there’s a good chance it’s utter hokum. Now I’m kind of afraid to Google it, because the arcane graffiti script is such a cool concept that I don’t want to know if it isn’t real. Only I do.
Of course it’s real. One of my art teachers in high school had local police come to her once in a while to decipher that stuff for them. She’d enlist the help of her students too. Even different gangs and ethnic groups have their own signs, alphabets and styles. Why do you think people get so mad about graffiti? Because of their delicate sensibilities? No. They know that it means something, and that something probably has to do with hella sick crimes.
Like, do you honestly think that people would cover every inch of a subway station in meaningless scribbles for no reason? Do you think they’re just playing with crayons? You don’t think that certain classes of society would have some kind of use for secret scripts or territorial markers in public places? Use your brain. Or ask law enforcement.
I went to Panda Express for a lunch break and I sat at a table with 2 extra chairs and this rude ass lady comes up to me and says “can you move to another table so my family can sit there? No one else is sitting with you and I need a spot and you’re wasting space.”
I looked up at her and said “No, because the two fucks I give are sitting here.”
Best fucking day of my life
you’re my hero
