These, for me, are the two most depressing paintings in western history. They were painted by post-impressionist Henry de Toulouse-Lautrec, a man who, due to inbreeding, was born with a genetic disorder that prevented his legs from growing after they were broken. After being so thoroughly mocked for is appearance, he became an alcoholic, which is what eventually caused his institutionalization and death. His only known romantic relations were with prostitutes.

And then he paints something like this which is so beautiful and tender and sentimental. It seems like the couple in bed really loves each other—cares about each other. Wakes up happy to look at each other. And I see that love and passion and I wonder how lonely he must have been. I wonder how he could paint something like this without it breaking his heart. 

Maybe they say artists should create what they know, not because its unbelievable when they extend themselves beyond their experiences, but because when they pull it off with such elegance, it’s so damn unbearable to look at. I hate thinking of Lautrec, wondering about the lovers he created and knowing it was beyond his experience. Creating something that he knows is beautiful and knows he’ll never really understand.

Can white girls please stop backing up Jennifer Lawrence on the whole nude pic thing? It’s her fault the entire thing happened because rule number 1 of naked pics is if they exist, someone will inevitably leak them. It’s naive and immature to expect, especially with the fame she has, that they…

They were her private photos. They were stolen. I have a cell phone with loads of personal information on it, as does most of the world, and, if I’m going by your logic, I’m supposed to not have one because there is a risk of having it stolen? I’m sorry but you really are making very little sense.
We use credit cards every day with the risk of having our information stolen. I’m going to ignore your feminist rant because I’m too tired to dive into that, but the fact that you are blaming Jennifer Lawrence for taking photos of herself that made her feel beautiful, even tho it was risky shocks me.
She had her personal photos stolen, in fact let’s stop using the word leaked, they were STOLEN. As in AGAINST THE LAW. As in SHE IS THE VICTIM AND IT IS NOT HER FAULT.
