Last weekend I was taking some photos of my cousin's kids. We just happened to be on a farm with brand new kittens prancing around in all their kitten cuteness and the kids were absolutely eating it up. It was perfect.

If the Internet has served only one purpose in the world, it is most definitely to prove that people love cats. Take a look at some of the world's foremost kitten collections and realize that your precious pet video is just a shadow of these museums' devotion.

Potter's work accesses a place in my mind (and I am sure many others) that's become a distant valley as I get older. His work has a childlike innocence that resounds through the ages.
In recent months, I've witnessed men peeing against storefront walls in the middle of 42nd Street, at Spring and Seventh, and Eighth Avenue in Chelsea.
