“I had cancer when I was sixteen. But honestly, it was so long ago that it’s almost like it happened to a different person. It doesn’t color my interactions or anything. But I’m a dancer, and I do think it’s affected my dancing. There’s this interesting tension between training and striving to control every movement of your body, and realizing that at any moment, your body can rebel against itself in a way that’s completely out of your control.”
Franz von Stuck
this is my second or third favorite von stuck painting. guide: this is a depiction of the Erinyes (Furies) waiting down a dark, flooded alleyway to ambush a man who has just finished stabbing another man to death. they are going to haunt his whole shit
Sleepers, the damp on my feet is still black, indistinct. Dew they say. / Ah, that I am Judith, am coming from him, out of the tent out of the bed, out-trickling his head, three-times drunken blood. Wind-drunk, drunk with incense-work, drunk with me—and now sober as dew. / Low-held head over the morning grass; but I up above on my way, exalted. / Suddenly empty brain, draining-away images into the soil; but gushing into my heart all the breadth of the after-deed. / Woman in love that I am. / In me terrors have chased together all raptures, on me all places find their spot. / Heart, my renowned heart, beat on the countering wind:
how I stride, how I stride / and swifter the voice in me, mine that will call, birdcall, before the locked-in city of fear.
— Rainer Maria Rilke, Paris, July 1911

Except for the part where Wayne was in the gifted program in elementary school, and only earned his GED instead of a High School diploma because he’s been working consistently in the music industry since he was fourteen. Still, he managed to get accepted at the University of Houston, where he earned high grades until his work schedule became too much to attend the classes, so he switched to University of Phoenix and took Psychology classes online.
I know what “Working at McDonalds” means here. It means you think he’s stupid or untalented. That’s a whole other can of worms I won’t even get into. I’m guessing your opinion that he should be “working at McDonalds” has a lot to do with his image. Whether you think he’s thuggish or that he looks like one of the gremlins after they got wet, it seems as if you, original poster, think he can’t be both that and someone who is intelligent and worthy of the level of notoriety he has reached.
Lets be real, if he wasn’t immersed in a highly lucrative career since his early teens, he probably would have funneled his brain power and creative energy into something else. Maybe he would have started out at McDonalds, slinging fries and dealing with nasty people like you who think that makes him beneath you. Or maybe he would have finished college and found a job at McDonald’s that would lead to running a boardroom or creating new flavor combinations, all while waiting for just the right moment to open his own joint.
But why would you bother thinking at all, when your knee jerk reaction is to use a successful black man as a punchline?
According to chemistry, alcohol IS a solution.
These five lines are called a staff, and a staff operates on two axes: up and down and left to right. The up-and-down axis tells the performer the pitch of the note or what note to play, and the left-to-right axis tells the performer the rhythm of the note or when to play it.
