Just had training for my new job at the gallery! So so happy about getting this position - the girls who run the gallery want me to take on as much responsibility as them in running the place and do things like scout for new upcoming artists, organize both group and solo exhibitions and manage social media/admin, so it’s very involved! This is just what I need right now, ahh ^_^

"I suppose I have a really loose interpretation of “work,” because I think that just being alive is so much work at something you don’t always want to do. The machinery is always going. Even when you sleep."

Japanese poster for CURSE OF THE DOG GOD (Shunya Ito, Japan, 1977)
Designer: TBD
Poster source: Posteritati
Update: This poster was wrongly attributed as Kon Ichikawa’s THE INUGAMI FAMILY (1976).  Thank you to Sighkingu for putting me right. The Japanese title for this film transliterates as INUGAMI NO TATARI, hence the confusion. Though there also seems to be some confusion as to whether this is called CURSE OF THE DOG GOD or CURSE OF THE GOD DOG. At least the poster makes more sense now.

Very suspicious of people stealing his tail
"Israel is currently attacking a population of 1.8 million that has no army, no navy, no air force, no mechanized military units, no command and control and no heavy artillery. Israel pretends that this indiscriminate slaughter is a war. But only the most self-deluded supporter of Israel is fooled. The rockets fired at Israel by Hamas—which is committing a war crime by launching those missiles against the Israeli population—are not remotely comparable to the 1,000-pound iron fragmentation bombs that have been dropped in large numbers on crowded Palestinian neighborhoods; the forced removal of some 300,000 Palestinians from their homes; the more than 160 reported dead—the U.N. estimates that 77 percent of those killed in Gaza have been civilians; the destruction of the basic infrastructure; the growing food and water shortages; and the massing of military forces for a possible major ground assault."
