Inspiration! Roundup: Kendall Jenner's Twin, A Pathetic Poem, the Full Tiananmen Square Man, and MOre!

A picture of a baby sitting in a camping chair wearing sunglasses and looking like a middle-aged man, relaxed on vacation.
This Week's "I want to go to there": Give me some of this baby's sweet vibes.

Kendall Jenner's Twin

Artist Kirby Jenner photoshops himself into Kendall Jenner's photos and the result is brilliant. (Although he is obviously ripping off the idea and craftsmanship of my Me and Ryan Gosling series, I will forgive him!)


This poem (called "Poem") by Rod Padgett isn't the kind of thing I would normally call inspirational, but it made me laugh while also making me feel like my insecurities were being recognized, so that's nice.

I don't know
I may not be much
Be a mess
Personality no good
All surface no inner strength
Poetry not any good
This poem not any good
I might die an old man
Scribbler of trash
Forgotten paper-scratcher
But I'll tell you this
I really love to lay around on my ass
Totally watching television

Tiananmen Square Man

I just came across this zoomed-out version of the iconic photo of Tiananmen Square Man. It's incredible.

Broobs' Portraits

I am fully in for Instagram artist Broobs' portraits. I haven't looked through all of them, but it looks like he is highlighting queer (with a focus on trans) artists of colour, past and present. The collage-style work is very cool!

Friends with Death

This video of the making of a sculpture of a skeleton is hypnotic to watch.

Argue Kindly

“Always remember that to argue, and win, is to break down the reality of the person you are arguing against. It is painful to lose your reality, so be kind, even if you are right.”
-Haruki Murakami
