"Why should the calculus of the destinies not have its thorny parts?"




It takes no one to stir up the sociological dynamite that stems from unemployment, bad housing, and inferior education already in the ghettoes. This explosively criminal condition has existed for so long, it needs no fuse; it fuses itself; it spontaneously combusts from within itself

madonnascrapbook:

Love this photo of madonna photographed during the Like a Prayer session with Herb Ritts in 1989.

I just saw this 1990s American version of “Notes from Underground” which includes Sheryl Lee as Liza. She looks just like this — it kept taking me out of the movie, thinking how much she looked like “Like a Prayer”-era Madonna.

He sings like an Angel, and looks like an Alien.

"Nice and Slow" by Usher.

I forgot Kimora is the love interest in this video! Anyway, today I was thinking — as I often do — that Usher doesn’t get enough credit as our generation’s top male R&B singer.

Happy Friday!

Mr. and Mrs. Quimby, right before Claire delightfully expresses her boredom with Warren’s lame suburban dreams.

Audrey Totter and Richard Basehart in Tension (1949).







September 2014, the month and year when I first saw the film Tension, and gained a new idol: Claire Quimby, as portrayed by Audrey Totter. Fantastic.
