“There are gentle souls who would pronounce Lolita meaningless because it does not teach them anything. I am neither a reader nor a writer of didactic fiction…For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm.” — Vladimir Nabokov

This man is a rapist. His name is Steven James and he is not 30 years old. He is 43 years old, a travel nurse, and a pedophile. Do. Not. Trust. Him.

This looks like OKC so if you use it and love around Raleigh, stay safe!!

(This is actually the tinder application which is a lot easier to hide on than OKC)-Steven James is active within the BDSM community and the adult entertainment industry. He targets young, white, single mothers. (my family were not his first victims) As a travel nurse he bounces from hospital to hospital in the tri-state area and is known to frequent Raleigh, Durham, Winston-Salem, Statesville, and Kernersville. He raped me for nine months from the day I turned twelve until my family moved out of his condo in winston salem. When I returned to Chapel Hill he continued to make trips to visit my family and abused me while he was here. In March of 2006 I disclosed about my abuse to my art teacher who contacted department of social services and the police. when Winston Salem authorities were made aware of the case they sent social workers to his home to ask him about the allegations. To avoid losing his nursing privileges he fled to Ohio for a few years until things died down. He is extremely dangerous, armed, and has extensive knowledge of technology (including how to find me should he see this). I am prepared for the backlash associated with this post and its reblogs. I am prepared to deal with the possible shut down of my blog for this post. I am prepared for him to find me. He has taken drastic steps to change his appearance, including what looks like botox and collagen injections. I am wholly positive that I am not mistaken. You do not forget the face of the person who killed what was inside you and you never will. I know that I will never get justice for what he has done and the subsequent events that followed my disclosure, but I hope that with this post he wont be able to ever hurt someone else.Thank you for all of the support i have received. Thank you for your words, your efforts, your reblogs, your thirst for justice.
Be safe, be aware, be critical.

Signal boost the hell out of this. This man is very dangerous. You could save a life.

Rape prevention tip: use the buddy system! If you’re not able to stop yourself from sexually assaulting people, ask a friend to stay with you while you’re in public!

this one’s my personal favorite.

Brooklyn artist Stephen Shaheen sets out to carve the largest collection of bone sculptures out of marble

My name is Stephen Shaheen, and I’m an artist living in Brooklyn, New York.  I’m working on a really exciting sculpture installation that I hope you join me in creating.

I’m carving bones out of marble.  A lot of bones.

My ultimate goal is to make a huge sculptural installation by the end of 2015.  How big?  The size of this artwork will be scaled by YOU! 

That is, for every person who donates, the installation is going to grow. Whether you want me to make a hundred or a thousand, I’m going to sculpt one marble bone for every $100 received.

There is no limit.

Why Bones?  Why Kickstarter?

Bones are fascinating as abstract, sculptural forms.  Yet they also contain the same calcium that forms the geologic “bones” of the earth.  Marble is literally the crystalized skeletons of ancient sea life.  Even its veining reminds me of our own physiology.  I want to offer a poetic interpretation of these complex relationships in an immense assemblage of marble bones.

I am a believer in the limitless and unforeseeable potential of collaborative art…crowd-sourced projects take on a life of their own, continually evolving through the transformative power of the collective.  Between 2002 and 2011, hundreds of helpers joined me to create a 100-ton marble and granite 9/11 memorial in Highlands, New Jersey, which was completely crowd-sourced—both in donations of materials and cash, as well as the contribution of multiple hands in the actual sculpting process.
