My other portrait for the Disney show at Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX.
“Cinema has certain qualities, and it’s the image. Sometimes this image has its own breathing or tempo. It has to linger, and will linger because you want to have more. It is very instinctive. It is very instinctive when you’re shooting the shots in front of this video, the monitor, you know exactly, because sometimes it takes you more than 10 takes or 15 takes… Afterwards, the most enjoyable part is the final weeks. That means you put everything together, the sound, the images and everything to create a film… it’s beyond words… I think one of the reasons you keep making films is because you want to experience that part again and again.”

I’m tired… I’m so fucking tired. I thought I just needed a night’s sleep, but it’s more than that. But thank you, for trying. I love you.

“This is a world in which nothing is ever solved.”
We’ll discover just how accurate Rust Cohle’s assertion may be when the season finale of True Detective airs this Sunday night. But until then, it’s boom times for amateur detective-ology. Who killed Dora Lange (and, presumably, a number of other women and children)? Who or what is the Yellow King? These and a variety of other interwoven mysteries are currently subject to rampant online speculation—sometimes precise, sometimes crazy, and not infrequently both—and far be it from me not to pile on. (I hope it goes without saying that if you haven’t watched the first seven episodes of True Detective and/or are allergic to spoiler-y speculation, you probably want to get out now.)

People point their fingers at young blacks, call them thugs and say they need to pull up their pants. That’s fine, but you’re not feeding them any knowledge. You’re not giving them a vision. All you’re saying is be a square like me… They have to be exposed to something new. Their minds have to be challenged, not dulled. They know the history of the Crips & Bloods, but they can’t tell you who Garvey or Robeson is. They can quote Drake & Lil Wayne but they can’t tell you what Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton has done.
I was 15 when my first love got shot nine times in Oakland. Do you think I’m going to care about book reports when my girlfriend was shot in the face?
