Overnight Open Thread (1-19-2014)

Intermittent internet all day so this ONT is about all I can burst out while the connection is still up.

Quote of the Day

Now the whole parable and purpose of these last pages, and indeed of all these pages, is this: to assert that we must instantly begin all over again, and begin at the other end. I begin with a little girl's hair. That I know is a good thing at any rate. Whatever else is evil, the pride of a good mother in the beauty of her daughter is good. It is one of those adamantine tendernesses which are the touchstones of every age and race. If other things are against it, other things must go down. If landlords and laws and sciences are against it, landlords and laws and sciences must go down. With the red hair of one she-urchin in the gutter I will set fire to all modern civilization.

  -- G. K. Chesterton, "What's Wrong with the World"


Lena Dunham in the Raw

Unretouched photos from her Vogue shoot versus what got published. Actually not that much fiddling by industry standards but a reminder that most magazine photos these days are a lie in some form or another.
