Days after Michael Brown’s death, Ferguson looks like a war zone

A vigil held for Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager gunned down by Ferguson, Mo., police on Saturday in disputed circumstances, turned into what the media described as a riot on Monday evening.

But while national coverage has focused on the indisputably counterproductive violence and destruction committed by Ferguson residents during a moment of anguish, videos and photos taken from the scene show local police aggravating the situation as well.

Years of tension have reached a boiling point

stay hydrated
be elusive
avoid a harsh flash
try to get plenty of exercise
play hard to get
be aware of lighting
elongate the neck
eat plenty of fish
grow old gracefully
keep an air of mystery
a true lady reveals nothing

There’s no way to keep in touch with certain people
You wonder how long something can last
Pretty sure most people don’t think about that
But who the fuck is laughing now?

Sunken city by the ocean
Car smells like hot Gatorade
Do you think because you chose to?
Do you think things are different than you think they are?

Never really had a drug phase
So you think you’re fucking miserable now?

"Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen."

went to stone valley in colton, new york with my friends chet and christy.

the more i film the more i realize how much i need to improve on things. i need a stabilizer for my camera. i had the ISO too high on my camera. the audio sounds a little distorted. (or am i going crazy?)

i’m gonna continue filming more stuff. it’s a lot of fun.
