east end shops - october 2014

I think it’s time to start making portraits again.

New (and far more personal) Tumblr HERE

(This Tumblr isn’t going anywhere - it’s just seems to have morphed into a Roanoke-centric thing, which I like (a lot), but does sometimes feel constraining.)

“So is the thieving that big a deal? Ethically, yes, and it destroys people because it’s a bad road you take. But I don’t think that’s the biggest problem for the music biz. I think people are just a little bit bored, and more than a little bit broke. No money. Especially simple working people who have been totally left out, screwed and abandoned. If I had to depend on what I actually get from sales I’d be tending bars between sets. I mean honestly it’s become a patronage system. There’s a lot of corps involved and I don’t fault any of them but it’s not as much fun as playing at the Music Machine in Camden Town in 1977. There is a general atmosphere of resentment, pressure, kind of strange perpetual war, dripping on all the time. And I think that prosecuting some college kid because she shared a file is a lot like sending somebody to Australia 200 years ago for poaching his lordship’s rabbit. That’s how it must seem to poor people who just want to watch a crappy movie for free after they’ve been working themselves to death all day at Tesco or whatever, you know.”

So, I just realized that I know 2 people named Lena, 1 named Adina, 2 named Alina, 1 named Madina and 1 named Marina. No wonder I stay so damn confused all the time.
