Until I was 18 to 20, film was not something I concentrated on. Films seemed so official to me. They didn’t seem to be made by people, they seemed to be handed down by gods.

Photo of people photographing a dog peeing on new 9-11-related graffiti by Banksy in New York. Their faces… ”Irony is dead” — Graydon Carter after 9-11. ”Sure, irony, yeah, cool cool cool. Now’s not a good time to talk about that, tho— we’re trying to photograph this rad dog peeing on 9-11 tribute art,” a person unusually happy about seeing a micturating canine.
