Patti Smith, New Year’s Eve 1976/January 1, 1977, CBGB NYC, by Allan Tannenbaum.

“I don’t feel any gender restriction. When I’m performing, it’s a very – for me – transcendent experience. I can’t say I feel like a male or female. Or both. What I feel is not in the human vocabulary.” ~ Patti Smith [x]

What do these three images have in common? They’re the three most recent posts I’ve had mistakenly flagged as sensitive! 

This is a reminder to stay calm, hit that appeal button, and keep moving. The alogorithm is still a baby. It doesn’t do you or a baby any good to yell at it when it messes up. Keep teaching it right from wrong, and a few hundred diapers full of shit later, this should all even itself out.

(And for the record, in the middle we have Iggy Pop covered in glitter in New York, 1971, by Lisa Gottlieb, and The Glimmer Twins matching turtleneck porn by Dezo Hoffman; original posts with credits, sources, etc. here and here.)
