James C. LewisIcons Of The Bible

The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.

"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."

"I wish to exhibit a splash of color onto the biblical pages of history with my creative embellishments. By doing so I hope to open the minds and eyes of the ignorant and create open conversations of how we can learn to see the world through colorful lenses. After all, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is intended for everyone."

For those who’d like to see the entire collection, “Icons Of The Bible” will on display from November 2014 to February 2015 in Atlanta, GA.

-waits for white people to flip shit-

This makes me happy. Very few people mentioned in the bible would have been white, if any. Did the white washers even think about the geography?

I love this so much. So so much.

Question post. Original / question list here. 

  • f. my favourite movie.

Okay I cannot pick just one here. :) I am a huge movie lover and book lover - I think that there are a lot of movies that have wonderfully stimulating intellectual content and imagination… and wow, cinematography, wow. 

Here are my top movies though: 300, Juno, Coraline (also an amazing book and a quick easy read), The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, RENT, Cloud Atlas (also a great book) and Mirror Mask. I would recommend all of these to anyone. 

  • s. a random fact about myself.

I used to be a very good young pianist. I quit, though, because I was convinced my sister was better than I was, which was a really stupid reason. I miss it. I tried to take a beginner’s class in college but the teacher treated me like I was unintelligent, and kept going over things that I already knew, like how to read music. It was a pretty insulting experience, actually; she acted like her class was the end all be all even though it was only one credit hour and she was a bad teacher. It was kind of like when kids are bored because they’re actually too advanced for a class - I needed to learn how to use my fingers again, yes, but she didn’t seem to understand that I also play saxophone, ukulele, and i’m a singer, so there’s a lot about music that I actually know and understand. Luckily the class is over but I kind of want to buy a keyboard and teach myself piano again. There’s something wonderfully therapeutic about playing music. 

  • k. relationship with my parents.

Interesting choice of question… my relationship with my parents is kind of weird. My dad says my family is close, but there are all kinds of things that my parents don’t know about me - like, they don’t know I’m bisexual and polyamorous, or that I’ve attempted suicide not once but three times (they know about one because it landed me in the hospital). My parents put a lot of pressure on me to be the “good kid”: perfect grades, perfect little soldier, and for a long time I really resented them for it. I think they did this growing up because I do actually have a lot of ability. I was drawing pretty realistic portraits of people without any lessons by the time I was about 13, I am very much musically talented, I’m athletic, and naturally thin. I think that a lot of my own personal “I must do this thing perfectly” comes from a drive to please them still, even though I’m out of the house and everything; I want to make them happy but I always wonder if I’m doing that right. My parents have actually accepted a lot about me and helped me with things, like my mom took me to therapy and a psychiatrist when I grew up with depression, and my dad has held me when I cried before, though I couldn’t tell him what the reason was. I always wonder how life could have been different if I had been the outspoken sibling but that was my sister, and she was, and is, outspoken about everything. I’ve always kind of envied that sort of free spirit, being about to say exactly what you mean, but they don’t always accept her, and I think my biggest fear about them is that they won’t accept me. 

  • z. how are you?

Right now? I’m really, really hungry, and I think I’m going to get my apartment organized today, and then I need to get homework done. So, all in all, actually pretty positive.

You are not a burden.

You are not a bother.

You enhance the lives of others.

People smile, not groan, when you text them.

Your voice.

Your presence.

You, matter.

How to write a song if you’re in a boy band: 

  1. Write about a girl, but be very vague in your lyrics, so that all 35 million of your fans can connect with it personally; be very vapid in about 98% of your lyrical content so that young girls can feel justified in saying “It’s about x, y, or z, and that’s so amazing!”
  2. Pretend to have an orgasm that goes up a scale. 
  3. Remember that you’ll never see this girl again, so you’d better write about that too. 
  4. Delve out strange bits of overly personal information here and there, just to see if anyone is actually listening to the lyrics, and when they ask tell people that “You’re just too deep.” 
  5. Call your band “punk” or “grunge” because pop sounds too “mainstream”, even though you have no idea where the terms come from or what they mean in music.
  6. Repeat yourself about fifteen times, add drums, a bass line, and backup singers. 

And there you have it: how to write a song if you’re in one of today’s boy bands.

Or you could use Will Ferrel’s easy method of falling down the stairs with a guitar. That works too.
