News: “Somebody Else’s Problem” Field Strong as Ever in NYC

I’d heard legend of children getting snatched, women getting raped, and good men getting stabbed in the middle of broad daylight in New York City, and the passersby will simply look the other way.

So here’s the story:

Hugo Alfredo Tale-Yax, 31 year a homeless Guatemalan immigrant came to the aid of a woman who was being robbed. The robber stabbed Hugo several times in the chest, and collapsed on the sidewalk, where he for far too long and bled to death. The climax of the story: security footage shows that plenty of people walked by his dying/dead body and did nothing… one stopped and took a photo with his cell phone before walking away.

People joke about that kind of attitude in DC, but it wouldn’t take more than a couple minutes for some good hearted Virginian or Marylander to stop and help.

Case Study: Ruadh DeLone

I unwittingly stumbled on this guy’s work a couple years ago, and am glad to find more of his work.

As a model, sometimes i feel like parts of me are just slabs of meat.

He did a whole series of self portraits where he did himself up in shaving creme and extreme facial expressions to portray historical figures. The picture i’m all too familiar with is of him dolling himself up as Costello. Actually, this one:

Brilliant range.

In a similar vein, he took a couple kids and dolloped them in bubbles to make them imitate high fashion photography.

A man after my own heart.

He also did a short series of… i’ll call them surreal amputee pieces for lack of a better definition.

I look forward to seeing more of Ruadh Delone’s work.

Archie comics introduces first openly gay character

Times, they are a changin’.

See that nice fella? Veronica is totally after this Kevin guy, apparently right after he out-eats Jughead in a burger eating contest. The icing? Kevin is openly homosexual, and Jughead is already thinking of ways to exploit it.

How long do you think it will be until Kevin starts making Jughead and Archie question their sexuality?
