What the actual fuck is this.
What the actual fuck is this.
how can we talk and write about being immigrant child and/or being the children of immigrants and the emotional complexities of it without painting our relationships with our parent/s as one-dimensional and as us always being the ones with their dreams and them being dreamless, vicariously living through us? how can we humanize the people in our lives who have experienced deep and complicated traumas instead of keeping them as the context for our immigrant guilt? how can we be gentle with ourselves and the people who have raised us?
i just have a lot of feelings about the immigrant parents have no feelings mentality and us being okay with leaving it at that
Godfrey Gao for the Nanyou Spring/Summer Issue 2014
i am not amused with how work has been going. when i moved to the dayshift, my segment buddy and i could do more because there were fewer people to bug us. nowadays, to accommodate for lack of analysts, we’ve taken to support an additional segment and we end up extending up 12 to 16 hours easily, every god damn day. i like my job, really, i do. but i am fucking exhausted.
management knows there’s a bandwidth issue but isn’t busting their ass to fix it. i had been planning to wait 2 years before looking for an opportunity with another team but at the rate things are going, i may have to depart sooner.
You are a shadow, wreathed in the judgment
of darkened cathedrals, bloodied rose gardens,
sacramental souls lying scattered on the floor.
And I, I am frightened by your scent
like opium, like rust in the rain.
I did a thing for a contest and I think it turned out pretty durn cute
Kickstarter prints have arrived! I’m packaging everything but commission level tiers up today and shipping either today or tomorrow! My online store with all the leftover art books and prints will be going live this week for those who missed out on the Kickstarter.

This spectacular white building is called Wat Rong Khun or The White Temple. It’s a Buddhist temple located in Northern Thailand just outside the city of Chiang Rai. Designed by Thai visual artist Chalermchai Kositpipat in 1997, The White Temple is an awesome blend of traditional Thai architecture and both beautiful and grotesque surreal elements. It’s as much a work of art as it is a building devoted to learning and meditation.
"To reach the temple you have to walk over a bridge over a moat filled with innumerable sculptures of out-reaching arms, apparently symbolizing desire. Once inside, you will be greeted not by traditional Buddha life scenarios but by contemporary scenes and icons of popular culture. Instead of paintings of heroes fighting demons, the artist decided to take contemporary manifestations of good and evil and put it into a Buddhist context. Murals of Batman, Superman, Predator and even Keanu Reeves as Neo from The Matrix are seen in the interior."
Although it’s already an incredibly impressive sight, Wat Rong Khun is still a work in progress. The temple sits on 3 acres of property that will eventually include a phra ubosot (prayer room), pagoda, hermitage, crematorium, monastery hall, preaching hall, museum, pavilion and rest room facilities.
