Clayton Dean Smith as Bellafonte in 30 Rock Season 3: ep. 21 Mamma Mia.
Uses a Nikon D3
In Her book Bossypants Tina Fey, along with mentioning shoots with Mario Testino and Annie Leibovitz, writes:
“There are nonchalant ‘cool guy’ photographers who shoot for Rolling Stone and GQ. Watch out for these guy, because their offhand manner can trick you and the next thing you know, you’re posing with your pants off. Or worse, with your shoes off.”
one of the inspirations for this blog.
Also birthing the chicken on the toilet.
We are gonna break from our usual format for a special memorial post :
Robin Williams as Seymour Parrish (“sy” the photo guy, nice alliteration writers) in One Hour Photo
Uses a Minolta Freedom Zoom 150
Bonus points: proves the rule, if the photographer ain’t hot he’s probably gonna murder your whole family, sweet neon genesis evangelion reference
The fun thing about this scene is it’s a reference to how wrong we originally thought dinosaurs looked. The t-rex standing upright is a nod to incorrect museum displays of yesteryear.

LOL man.never forget white people did nothing first neither the best, they sleep and eat false propaganda,
Ugh, why the shit does that have to turn into a race thing? Why does EVERYTHING have to turn into a race thing?
because white people have made sure that everything is about race
as proved by the fact that when you say explorer, you think of a bunch of white guys walking the world and discovering it ~exotic wonders~ even though Zheng He travelled through Asia, to the Middle East, and even East Africa. But you’d likely never heard of him before.
Same reason you never heard of Ahmad Ibn Fadlan, an Arab traveller who, as early as the 10th century, went to the Volga area for diplomatic reasons. He wrote about it, much as Marco Polo would do later for his own travels, and is one of our sources on what viking were like (and by all accounts, he wrote about them more accurately than western scholars of the same period did)
Oh, or Ibn Battuta who travelled throughout Africa long before europeans did, and even went to Europe himself.
And that’s just some example of Muslim medieval travel writers
Everything is about race because white people keep telling everyone that their race is the only one who every got anything done.
i have heard of precisely zero non-european explorers ever in my life, and that fucking sucks. this exhibit is amazing and i need to learn more.
That boat is a frickin aircraft carrier comparatively. Holy crap. And no. Never heard a peep.
Zhenghe went to over 40 countries in Asia and Africa and probably went even further, but I didn’t encounter that in history books before. He brought gifts from China to every country he went to and everyone loved him. It was just like “Hey, I’m here with a water-helicarrier and a gift,” and the kings of every country were lilke “holy shit son well here have a giraffe.” There are paintings depicting him leading a giraffe as well. Check him out guys, he’s really cool
That is so awesome. Fuck western history. This is the real shit.
