Illustrator Allen Crawford has turned Whitman’s poem “Song of Myself” into a sprawling, 256-page work of art. The densely-handwritten text and illustrations intermingle in a way that’s both surprising and wholly in tune with the spirit of the poem—exuberant, rough, and wild. “Whitman Illuminated: Song of Myself” is a sensational reading experience, an artifact in its own right, and a masterful tribute to the Good Gray Poet.

Hi! I don’t think I will be attending this year, unless I get a reason to go like a panel invitation or a job to sponsor me =)

I’m *just throwing it out there* that I wish I was important enough to be on the College and YouTube panel. I personally rocked balancing that stuff and THEN directly applied vlogging to my work at school and THEN turned my schoolwork into a cool niche of video, which is now the start of my career! I could easily talk about this for an hour.

The months merged together, like a long flash of too bright light. When she went to sleep, curling inwards and giving herself over to the dreams, she felt it and when she woke the next morning, it was always to the taste of blood. There was a darkness gathering inside of her and when she held a gun it was closest, consuming her, taking away memories of Winterfell, her father’s voice, her brother’s smile. With a target in mind, it was easy to forget the gnawing in her stomach, to let everything in the world narrow down to a gun and the bullet that she controlled. The names gradually dwindled off of her list, she had a shorter prayer to recite at night, and the dizzy emptiness began to slip away - replaced by something harder, something stronger.

"I saw young Americans killed by the very weapons I created to defend them, to protect them and I saw that I have become a part of a system that was comfortable with zero accountability."
