↳ Bogie and Bacall - A Masterpost.
Few Hollywood romances were as legendary as Bogie and Bacall’s. The beautiful Betty was only 19 when she met Humphrey (who was married at the time) on the set of their upcoming movie ‘To Have And Have Not’ in 1944. However their 25 year age gap and Bogart’s marital status didn’t seem to stop a romance from forming between the two stars. After divorcing his wife in February, 1945, he proposed to Bacall and Bogie and his ‘Baby’ were married just months later on May 21st, 1945 at Malabar Farm in Ohio. They stayed blissfully wed, had two children together and were very much in love with each other until his untimely death in 1957. At Bogie’s funeral, Bacall placed a small golden whistle that had once been a part of a charm bracelet he had given to her before they married. It was inscribed with a quote from their first movie together - "If you want anything, just whistle."

Marina Abramović, Rhythm 0, 1974
"This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her. She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly. “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.”
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”
i really wanna kiss you and be cute with you and fall asleep in your arms and go on stupid dates but i also sort of want to light...
