i guess i am too 'corrupt'
injury or death doesn't effect me that way
laugh at horror - it's so fake
see true crime stuff as beautiful
maybe life is different when you don't believe in death - i don't know
maybe just as an artist i have no image viewing editor - all is let in as
or my adolescent boy mechanism is turned on
'eviscerating' - i was just like "ok... +"
my friend nica was in a film - i cannot remember the name of -
that we showed at the pink pony's screenings
in which she cuts off her husbands penis and scraps off her lips
- her husband was molesting their son -
people were passing out + leaving the screening
i really didn't understand that response
i thought 'begotten' was way way way too long
i did like that it was shot on the playschool cam - or was that fisher price
and it had beautiful imagery
how were u effected physically?
did you see 'repulsion' or "the act of seeing with one's own eyes"
