MUST SEE New York art event this week:  On September 3rd, from 8-9 PMBOSI Gallery in the Lower East Side (48 Orchard Street) is having their opening for “RED HOT 100" a film and photography exhibition which seeks to "rebrand the ginger male stereotype.” The exhibition is accompanied by an art book by Thomas Knights which is said to contain “The 100 sexiest RED HOT guys in the world.” Knight has stated the following regarding the project:

"Guys with red hair don’t have the positive role models that girls do in our culture. A male with red hair is not seen as aspirational, culturally speaking, with very few leading men, heroes, action stars or heartthrobs played by men with red hair in Hollywood or on our TV screens. Also the more laddish culture of banter - that maybe is not so prevalent in female friendship circles - creates a fear of speaking out based on the concept of ‘it was just a joke’. While many people may argue calling someone a ‘ginga’ or any other ‘fun’ words for people with red hair is just witty banter, for some of those on the receiving end, the impact to their self esteem is felt much more deeply and can have lasting, detrimental effects at school and way into their adult life. Red Hot is my response to this."

I would be drooling everywhere

It’s such a terrible feeling when one of your friends is experiencing immense pain and there’s nothing you can do to help them. She’s in Texas and I’m in Florida and I can’t even imagine what she’s going through. If I had the money I would be on a plane right now instead of being at work.

Don’t tell me this is gods will because from what I’ve seen, and if that’s true, god is an asshole.

Pink Fairy Armadillo 
Known as the smallest species of armadillo, the pink fairy armadillo has a body that is approximately 90-115 millimeters in length, excluding the tail. It is called pink fairy armadillo because its body is pale rose or pink in color. What makes this animal special is that it can bury itself completely in just a few seconds when it is scared.
