This is so important.

"As a society, we deal with violence, especially sexual violence, against women in much the wrongheaded manner that we have fought the war on drugs. We focus on the supply-side, with an emphasis on the things that women must do to “stay safe” instead of focusing on lessening mens’ “demand” to view women as purely a disposable commodity. In short, we emphasize how women can prevent being assaulted instead of telling men and boys not to assault women in the first place."

Eminem - Lose Yourself

Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
One moment

Would you capture it or just let it slip?

His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy,
There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti,
He’s nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready,
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgetting,
What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud,
He opens his mouth, but the words won’t come out
He’s choking how, everybody’s joking now
The clock’s run out, time’s up over, blaow!
Snaps back to reality, ope! There goes gravity,
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked,
He’s so mad, but he won’t give up that easy,
No, he won’t have it, he knows his whole back’s to these ropes,
It don’t matter, he’s dope,


He knows that, but he’s broke,
He’s so stagnant that he knows,
When he goes back to his mobile home, that’s when it’s,
Back to the lab again yo,
This this whole rhapsody,
He better go capture this moment and hope it don’t pass him.

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment,
You own it, you better never let it go,
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow,
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo

The soul’s escaping, through this hole that is gaping,
This world is mine for the taking,
Make me king, as we move toward a new world order,
A normal life is boring, but superstardom’s
Close to post mortem it only grows harder, only grows hotter,
He blows us all over, these hoes is all on him
Coast to coast shows, he’s known as the globetrotter,
Lonely roads, God only knows,
He’s grown farther from home, he’s no father,
He goes home and barely knows his own daughter,
But hold your nose ‘cause here goes the cold water,
His hoes don’t want him no more, he’s cold product,
They moved on to the next schmoe who flows,
He nose dove and sold nada,
So the soap opera is told and unfolds,
I suppose it’s old partner but the beat goes on,
Da da dum da dum da da

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment,
You own it, you better never let it go,
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow,
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo


No more games, I’ma change what you call rage,
Tear this motherfucking roof off like 2 dogs caged.
I was playing in the beginning, the mood all changed,
I been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage,
But I kept rhyming and step right in the next cipher,
Best believe somebody’s paying the pied piper,
All the pain inside amplified by the fact,
That I can’t get by with my 9 to 5,
And I can’t provide the right type of life for my family,
Cause man, these goddam food stamps don’t buy diapers,
And it’s no movie, there’s no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life,
And these times are so hard and it’s getting even harder,
Trying to feed and water my seed, plus,
Teeter totter caught up between being a father and a prima donna,
Baby mama drama’s screaming on and,
Too much for me to wanna,
Stay in one spot, another day of monotony,
Has gotten me to the point, I’m like a snail,
I’ve got to formulate a plot or I end up in jail or shot,
Success is my only motherfucking option, failure’s not,
Mom, I love you, but this trailer’s got to go,
I cannot grow old in Salem’s lot,
So here I go it’s my shot,
Feet fail me not cause maybe the only opportunity that I got

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment,
You own it, you better never let it go,
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow,
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo


You can do anything you set your mind to, man

The concept of keeping your friends close but your enemies closer is not lost upon me.

I understand it, I do. But it seems to me to be the most miserable way to live your life.

To keep the people around you that you don’t trust, don’t like, don’t respect and that you feel may be out to get you in some way, because you might end up needing to use them in the future is not something I do. And is not something I would ever recommend doing either.

Keep your friends close, and keep your enemies as far away as possible.

If they don’t aid or enhance or compliment your life in some way, get gone. Surround yourself with people that love you, understand you (or try to) that can laugh with you and cry with you, always have your back and want the best for you.
There are enough people in the world that don’t wish you success or happiness, do yourself a favour and don’t give them entry into your life, especially not the inner circle. Reserve that for your favourites and give yourself a chance at happiness. Because happiness isn’t where your enemies are, that’s for damn sure.

LIFE

A man walks down the street
And he says
Why am I soft in the middle?
Why am I soft in the middle when the rest of my life is so hard?

Dolly Parton is a queen. 🙌❤️👑😍⭐️

The amount I miss you isn’t normal.

Or fair.

Or logical.

Or justified.

Or consensual.

Or allowed.

Or understood.

Or wanted.

Or okay.

And yet, I miss you anyway.

Huh?

Lateefah Smith by Kevin Morosky 

“My name is Lateefah Smith… Lateefah isn’t a ghetto or ‘urban’ name, whatever that means. It’s a North African name that means gentle and pleasant. Smith comes from my great great great Grandfather who was a blacksmith on a plantation.” 

Chang Jian Wen by Kevin Morosky 

“My name is Chang Jian Wen, Im not related to Bruce Lee. I’m far from rich, my mother and father worked two jobs each and saved so I could study here” 

Location : 178 Westbourne Grove, W11 2AD - Billboard no 1458

#MYNAMEIS is a public exhibition investigating the importance of names, the perception they give and the burden they may carry. Consisting of five works, each located on a billboard in various locations throughout London, the pieces encompass varying ideas on the assumptions and stereotypes that are associated with a name. 

My aim with this work is to start polite conversations about each others cultures. No more assumptions. Everyone should be outraged by any type of attack or phobia on any group, Not just the victim and the racial or religious background they have been pigeon holed to. Everyone should be offended by Mark Duggans treatment, not just black people from Tottenham, similar, not only woman should be disgusted that we live in a society that urges them to cover up rather then tell men and teach boys to show more respect. 

King.

“Expect to be challenged in Westbourne Grove by Morosky’s artwork that looks at the assumption that a person can base their expectations of a person’s race on their name. His work Lateefa Smith/ Chang Jian Wen seems particularly poignant in a city as multiracial as London.” - @wonderlandmag

My last ever retail job I was sent to the store on Westborne grove to cover. While there my store manager rang the store I was covering in and insisted I come back to my store so I could be interrogated in a surprise meeting about my recent illness. I simply put down the phone on her while she was still talking & got my coat. The supervisor of the store I was covering in asked where I was going. I said ” To be a photographer, I hope you reach your sales target” & I left. Went home and started sorting negatives & equipment. Majority of that work place thought me disillusioned. A hand full of years later my piece for the #mynameis Exhibition is on a billboard on the same street as the store.. Believing in yourself is real magic, once you start practicing it, not even Dumbledore can chat to you.
