Woman Drowns in Beach Sex Romp

Talk about an awkward funeral.

There aren’t many people in these photos, but there are a lot of signs and lettering. In a way, they are a substitute for people in this landscape. The omnipresence of signs and advertisements is typical of the American West. People weren’t able to establish proper settlements, but it seemed to me that they painted big signs everywhere so that they wouldn’t feel so isolated and prove that they really conquered the country. It’s like getting to the North Pole or Mount Everest and finding a dozen flags planted by those who have been there before, to prove the fact that they’ve been there. In the US, the culture of lettered monument is overwhelming and fairly advanced. It involves a lot of imagination, originality, and detailed work on shadows and outlines. The pains that are taken and the sheer love of lettering that is apparent in neon writing or ads are extraordinary, and the result often has real beauty.

"We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and in spite of True Romance magazines we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely at least, not all the time but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness."
— Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman 1955-67  (via bbook)
