I am Dante Orpilla, a self-taught idiot currently living in a state of perpetual hustle. This is my Tumblr. I have no fucking clue what I'm doing.
'Jesus The Homeless' a new sculpture by Timothy Schmalz, has been installed outside of a church in a rich community in Davidson, NC. Within 48 hours, a woman had called the cops on him. Yes. Someone called the cops on Jesus, further illustrating my point; If he were to return, I doubt any of you would recognize him. #TimothySchmalz #spareChangeForJesus
The face of a fuck-up being asked to come talk to high school kids about how not to be a fuck-up. Their faces when the advice is not only should they not be afraid to fuck up, but that the proposition of having your life figured out before they’ve lived less than 20% of it… Is absolute bullshit. Fucking up will be a huge part of the remaining 80%. Embrace it. Own it. For what you think is important now, won’t be important in 5 years. And that’s just the way of it. Then I realize all the cool kids are staring at the weirdo… And it feels like high school all over again. #fuckUpFriday #luckLovesTheKids #matadors (at San Gabriel High School)

What is time? For a long time I considered it the most valuable commodity on the planet. But after having gnawed on it, I’ve come to a much more powerful realization. You see, Time is an idea, and in that respect… Time is God. It is no coincidence that she is the first concept introduced in both the bible and the Torah, even before the heavens and the Earth, in fact even before the word ‘God’ is mentioned… There she is. She is consistently unbreakable across every life form, religion, science,and ideology man has ever recorded. She waits for no man, heals all wounds, and when we, as a people, forget the lessons she teaches us, she graciously repeats them. She doesn’t choose sides, doesn’t reinforce what different cultures consider right and wrong, but doesn’t judge us for attempting to discover that parallel, no matter how silly we may look while trying. And while my watch fetish was born in an attempt to measure her, the only real tool we have to gauge her is our heart. That’s why we call it a ticker. For when our time comes, there is no escaping her. Time is God. And she is vicious when you take her for granted. #time… New #mural at the offices of Dials… #ticker
