Sent from my mobile.
I offered u so much
U have no clue "Who I M"
U are not Unique yet
Just a scared animal afraid if his shadow
I just wanted to help
Charles Will never help u
He is a selfish user
It's what my work exposes
But you haven't even taken the time to realize that I am a notable figure in Immersion Journalism
Notable figures. : David S Pollack
Actually read it
And understand that the series "Who I M" by Chase Alias an Immersionist Character of Artist David Pollack began as a series called "What we Found on Craigslist..."
U really should read the series
Watch the video
Read my writing
In actuality I am the only person he has ever been afraid of
U see true intelligence and wisdom is deceptive
And can be easily pocketed until needed
Something a true sociopath can not deal with easily.
Charles always assume. He has the advantage
In every way!
He is the player.
U are the Game
Matching wits and intelligence has never been an issue until he met me
U see my end game was never apparent to him and that frightens someone who spends there entire life in a lie
I guess thats what you two have in common.
Living a lie..
My only goal was exposure
I'm a photographer
And while he stated he wanted a sober companion to help him stop drinking and drugging
The reality is he want the bad boy fuck-up
So when he gets sicker and sicker there is A live in scapegoat
well have fun being the new pet.
Oh and by the way. I took a survey. And almost everyone agrees. It doesn't matter what u call yourself. Gay or Straight. If you choose to have a sexual relationship with someone of the same sex at any point u can categorize yourself as Gay.
But who needs the Stigma, Right! It all the Same Love!
If u tell someone of the same sex u are "straight" but u can only have sex with them when u are high.
Not only are u Gay.
You have serious issues.
Change feels great
I feel free
Wish the real bear would join me
Maybe one day u will
Hope u survive

Immersion Art and Gonzo Journalism Gone Wild. David S Pollack aka Chase Alias, Cubby and Holden Vance III create unique journalistic viewpoints on the evil men who constantly "Chase" after him. These men only wanting to use young men for sex and drugs. Since Connecticut passed their Same Sex law many of these very affluent men have found themselves in quite a quandary......

"I think black people feel the same prejudice, you know, that that white people feel."
She then goes on to say her boyfriend is black, but you can't see him b/c he is standing against dark molding.
You can't make this shit up.

Man looking a human skull in the eyes.
Cannibal village in Malekula Vanuatu. The last one was around 1940, during the WW2. They ate people from other tribes, not always missionaries! The victims were killed on a sacred stone, and shared between the men.
Malekula is very mountainous with numerous bays. On the Island, kastom villages can be found. The men wear the typical nambas while the women are bare breasted and wear colorful grass skirts. During the ceremonies, dances take place in the sacred places called « nasara ». Since customs are still very much alive in Vanuatu, the power of the chiefs and of the nasara sacred ground is very respected. However, the missionnaries eradicated the practice of cannibalism in the country more than 60 years ago. Some sacred stones used for the sacrifice are still visible today. Each tribe has its own traditions and customs. Usually, as a means for calling the workers in the fields to come back to the village, they blow in a shell or bang a drum. The two main tribes on the island are the « Big namba » and « Small namba » tribes according to the size of the namba they wear. The Big namba tribe on Malekula Island have a drum called « ghost drum », different from the giant ones that can be found in Ambrym. There are mainly two kinds of statues : the slit drums, also called tamtams, and the grade statues. Both are highly valued by the major ethnographic museums and antique dealers. The Big nambas’ most striking tradition is the removal of the women’s two superior teeth to show they are ready to be married and give birth. The Small namba people wear a hat made of feathers, pandanus, palm leaves and mud, which is the nightmare of the australian customs. During the circumcision ritual in Vanuatu, a dance is performed. It's the main event in the life of the 13-year-old boys. The men wear the circumcision masks, which have 2 sides : one in the front, one in the back. The masks are made up of spider nets. The women are not allowed to see those masks. So they are told to pass their way and turn their head. The boys are circumcised in a house at the top of a banyan tree, where they stay before and after the ceremony until they have cicatrized.
Malekula est très montagneuse avec de nombreuses baies. Sur l’île, on trouve des villages kastoms. Les hommes portent les nambas caractéristiques tandis que les femmes sont seins nus et portent des jupes colorées faites d’herbes. Durant les cérémonies, des danses ont lieu dans les endroits sacrés appelés « nasara ». Comme les coutumes sont encore très vivantes à Vanuatu, le pouvoir des chefs et de la terre sacrée du nasara est très respecté. Néanmoins, les missionnaires ont éradiqué la pratique du cannibalisme, il y a plus de 60 ans. Certaines pierres sacrées utilisées pour le sacrifice sont encore visibles aujourd’hui. Chaque tribu a ses propres traditions et coutumes. En général, comme moyen d’appeler les travailleurs dans les champs pour revenir au village, ils soufflent dans un coquillage ou frappent un tambour. Les deux principales tribus sur l’île sont les Big nambas et les Small nambas que l’on nomme ainsi selon la taille du namba qu’ils portent. Les Big nambas sur l’île de Malekula ont un tambour appelé « tambour fantôme », différent des tambours géants que l’on trouve à Ambrym. Il y a surtout deux sortes de statues : les tambours fendus, appelés également tam-tams, et les statues de grade. Les deux sont très prisés par les principaux musées ethnographiques et antiquaires. La tradition la plus frappante des Big nambas est le retrait des deux dents supérieures des femmes pour montrer qu’elles sont prêtes à se marier et enfanter. Les Small nambas portent une coiffe faite de plumes, de pandanus, de feuilles de palmier et de boue, qui est le cauchemar des douanes australiennes. Lors du rituel de circoncision à Vanuatu, il y a une danse. C’est l’événement majeur dans la vie des garçons de 13 ans. Les hommes portent les masques de circoncision, qui ont deux faces : l’une sur le devant, l’autre à l’arrière. Les masques sont faits de toiles d’araignée. Les femmes ne sont pas autorisées à voir ces masques. Elles doivent donc continuer leur chemin en tournant leur tête. Les garçons sont circoncis dans une maison située en haut de l’arbre banyan, où ils restent avant et après la cérémonie jusqu’à ce qu’ils aient cicatrisé.

Arya is Gauri's 1 year 2 month old niece and every time this lil baby takes some steps, the whole house comes to a halt to see the spectacle. :)
Of course, today was also my first few baby steps into shooting a wedding - properly. Gauri's getting married on Monday and today was her Mehendi ceremony, and what a blast it was!
