    Are you real?

    “There was no mention of the murders”

    When Martin Scorsese was growing up in Little Italy in the late 1940s and early 1950s, he began to fixate on cinema. For him, cinema was an outlet of expression, a journey to separate himself from his own existence and take part in another realm for a few hours.

    Promises Written in Water

    Story time: 

    Vincent Gallo has a website where you can buy his sperm. If you’re not aware of this, I plead for you to journey out and give his site a glimpse. But beyond Vincent’s sperm, lies an email. 

    My ex-girlfriend and I had recently watched Buffalo ‘66 and loved it around this time last year. I would talk to my good friend, Che, about how much Gallo was a problematic artist whom I admired artistically. He asked me if…
