I am a street photographer in New York City. Several months ago, I was approached by a representative of DKNY who asked to purchase 300 of my photos to hang in their store windows “around the world.” They offered me $15,000. A friend in the industry told me that $50 per photo was not nearly enough to receive from a company with hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue. So I asked for more money. They said “no.”Today, a fan sent me a photo from a DKNY store in Bangkok. The window is full of my photos. These photos were used without my knowledge, and without compensation.I don’t want any money. But please REBLOG this post if you think that DKNY should donate $100,000 on my behalf to the YMCA in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. That donation would sure help a lot of deserving kids go to summer camp. I’ll let you guys know if it happens.

Scumbags!

It’s interesting, because meeting [George Carlin] and seeing how he approached things has probably had a greater effect on me as a person than his work had on me as a performer. He was just so sweet. I remember we were sitting around, shooting something and just talking, and he mentions a guy named Lord Buckley, this ’50s spoken-word guy, and he says, “You ever hear of Lord Buckley?” “No, never heard of him.” And he starts describing him to me, and he’s like, “He had the jazz thing and the black sound and rhythms, but he was a white dude…” And the next day, George came in with a cassette tape of his Lord Buckley albums that he had made for me. Now, this is ’94. There was no digital. This was all analog. He dug through his albums, got his tape player, and made that thing. And he did it after he came home from doing rewrites and producing the pilot that he was starring in. The fact that someone of his stature—he was already legendary at that point—the fact that he would do that for me, this kid he barely knew, just to share something? That just blew my mind. And it also set the bar for how, as a performer, you have a responsibility to perform and how to act as a person. You don’t have to be a schmuck just because you’re famous. In fact, it’s all the more reason that you shouldn’t be.

guys remember when Lemony Snicket filled an entire page with evers? 

I do.

One of the many reasons why these books will always be some of my favorites.
