song 51 is called ‘paper dreams’. it’s a demo of my favorite song i have ever written. i wasnt originally going to put it anywhere because it leaves me very exposed, but thats what its all about i guess.
you said you cant keep hanging around there
with these thoughts that rot in my hair
and the kids that never go to sleep
i’ll wear my favorite dress
but it will make no difference
i am not the same as i was when you first met me
and my eyes were still bright
and i hadn’t yet begun to destroy my body
drink until you want me
tie me up and taunt me
stay here forever just to haunt me
stuck inside your day dream
tell your friends that i seem
to be doing better this year
damn, missed this one. probably the 420 highlight for me so far4,183 plays
I am a street photographer in New York City. Several months ago, I was approached by a representative of DKNY who asked to purchase 300 of my photos to hang in their store windows “around the world.” They offered me $15,000. A friend in the industry told me that $50 per photo was not nearly enough to receive from a company with hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue. So I asked for more money. They said “no.”
Today, a fan sent me a photo from a DKNY store in Bangkok. The window is full of my photos. These photos were used without my knowledge, and without compensation.
I don’t want any money. But please REBLOG this post if you think that DKNY should donate $100,000 on my behalf to the YMCA in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. That donation would sure help a lot of deserving kids go to summer camp. I’ll let you guys know if it happens.
