J.K. Rowling Apologised For Killing Off Another Character This Year

J.K. Rowling Apologised For Killing Off Another Character This Year

Alive, Anaconda, and Bailey Jay: makaveli-immortalized: Tupac Shakur with Chi Modu Over the years, people have always said that my images of Tupac let them see a side of him beyond the Thug Life image, more about the human being. Before he was loved by the world, he was a young man trying to make his way in a society that is extremely cruel to the less fortunate. He made it his mission to speak for those in his community who needed to hear “keep your head up!” As I travel the globe, I’m amazed at how many people have told me that Tupac saved their lives. His words and passion inspired a generation, and these pictures that we created together help to keep that inspiration alive. It’s always sad when people die young, but if you leave behind the kind of legacy that Tupac did, you never actually die. You remain forever in the hearts and minds of people for generations to come. I knew that about him when we first spent time together in Atlanta, Georgia back in 1994. We both knew the importance of images and we set out to do a thorough job, not knowing what the future would hold. He died two years after that meeting in Atlanta, but his words and these images are all part of his lasting legacy. When I met him on location in Atlanta in ’94 he was quite cooperative and a really nice guy. It was a shoot for The Source magazine, and he arrived early. Tupac was the ultimate professional, and he respected my time and my skills. The public might not know that about him. They think he was just this crazy guy who had no real limits, but he completely understood who he was, and if he understood what you brought to the table, he was easy to deal with. In fact, we got along great. I think a lot of people want to buy into the ‘thug life’ image and the younger side of him, because he was still a young man. Let’s be clear, you kind of forget the ages of these folks. To be so prolific and so young, and have so much power — it’s hard to imagine Even with all the childishness — which I believe was age appropriate in a lot of ways—when you throw power and money in there, even with all that, he had a lot of care and love for his community and for the less fortunate. He always spoke on behalf of black people who were struggling. Even though he wrote songs that many would consider typical hip-hop party music, he also included a lot of black empowerment in his lyrics — “Brenda’s Got a Baby,” “Dear Mama” — which I believe is why women liked him. They loved him because he was real and he cared. We knew the silly side of him too, but who isn’t silly at the age of twenty five? So that never surprised me when he did the zany stuff. He was young and full of power in a world that’s biased against blacks, so what do you expect? Normally when I would see Tupac, I would always think of him being on blast — excited and moving at a hundred miles an hour. But when I first met him he wasn’t really like that. It’s funny how everyone always thinks about Tupac and the ladies, but I never really saw him chasing women that much. He was much more focused on his mission. I think that’s what made him stand out so much from his peers. Because while everybody was partying, this man was trying to make sure he created his legacy. And so here we are decades later talking about the man as if he’s still around. I don’t think you can take lightly the fact that this is two decades later and we’re still talking about this man. After we finished his first Source cover shoot in Atlanta, we went back to his home in Stone Mountain, GA to hang out. He called me aside and showed me his entire gun collection in his bedroom—all his AKs, banana clips, Glocks, everything. Then he moved a picture on the wall in his bedroom, revealing a bullet hole. This was from when he fired a shot in his bedroom because he was on probation and prohibited from going to the firing range. We all laughed afterwards. We would’ve all been in our 40s together, but he never got to his 40s, he didn’t even see his 30s with us. So that’s quite a body of work and experience that he put in during his short time on this Earth. He was one of the few stars who could cross over without compromising his roots. Tupac wasn’t going to compromise, that wasn’t him, but Versace still wanted to use him for their campaign. It’s funny when I see rappers trying to do that sort of thing. I think when you start to move in those commercial circles they make you change yourself to fit. You lose your authenticity, but Tupac wouldn’t allow that of himself. He took the streets with him wherever he went. The portrait shots of Tupac, like the one that’s on the cover of the book, were actually done with a 4x5 camera, which is a view camera. It’s the camera where you put the curtain over your head to focus. It’s large format. It sits on a tripod, and you put the film in, come out from behind the camera, you click it, then you switch the film. Kind of like the old style cameras. At that session in Atlanta, I photographed Tupac with my 4x5 with no assistant. It was just me and his people. When you shoot using a 4x5 you’re really very close to the subject. I was no more than three or four feet from him. I’m there but the gap between us is the camera, even though I’m right there with them. When you’re that close to someone frame after frame, that’s really how they get to know you. You’re almost breathing on each other, and I’m telling him, ‘Lift your head, bring your eyes down.’ I’m giving him instructions so he can look better. Once you spend hours with someone like that, you know them forever. I’m looking at every pore on your face. I’m on your team. In doing that first photo shoot in 4x5, I think that’s what made Tupac so comfortable with me because I was looking in his eyes, he was looking in mine at the same time, and real recognizes real. Once we got to that place we were cool. He gave me pictures he didn’t give anybody else and he said, ‘These are for you, Chi.’ Everybody knows the Thug Life Tupac, and we know that well. But they don’t know the Tupac in the quiet moments. Like that picture of him tying his bandana over his head, the profile shot. That’s an outtake. He was fixing his bandana with a cigarette in his mouth but he was relaxed enough around me where I could just photograph him. As a result you see a picture of a much more gentle Tupac. For me gentle and soft are not the same thing. Tupac was gentle but you wouldn’t dare step to him. He was prepared to take it where it needed to go. He wasn’t afraid. That’s who he was to me, and we got along from the first time we met. We were cool, so I got access to him that no one else could get. Tupac wanted me to shoot his album Me Against the World, he told me to get in touch with the art director in New York. By the time I went there to meet, they had already given the assignment to someone else. What’s funny is I had already taken what would later become the most iconic imagery of Tupac. So when you look at the more famous portraits of Tupac like him tying his bandanna and the Rolling Stone cover, I had already created those pictures before I went to meet the art director to discuss the album. No one knew at the time that the photos I took of him would be the images people remember and not the ones they used on the album. In a way you end up getting your justice if you wait long enough When I set out to take these photographs I knew they were important. I wanted to make sure the images stayed within the community. I wanted to make sure the person who created them was from the community. Historically that never really happens. Most of the visuals of the greats are owned and controlled by other people. That’s tricky because then they can put their interpretation on it. But when you look at my photographs, I’m there with them. I’m one of them even though I’m an observer. I was close enough to live it and I had the skills to document and record it. I had four sessions with him, and since we were close he let me in close. It’s friends hanging out with friends and there just happened to be a camera present. You can see the closeness and the warmth because I didn’t really look at my subjects as just celebrities. I saw them as young black guys like me. It allowed me to get closer and it allowed them to be comfortable and just be who they were. I offered no judgment. I was just there to document and make people look good. Even though I was the creator of these images, I’ve always felt more like the caretaker of them, because he was the world’s Tupac, not just my photo subject. He burned bright when he was here and his flame continues to glow. Thank you for being the voice of the voiceless, Tupac. Rest in peace, brother. Excerpted from Tupac Shakur: Uncategorized by Chi Modu, a 200-page hardcover book featuring over 100 powerful images of Tupac Shakur.

Tupac Shakur with Chi Modu
Over
 the years, people have always said that my images of Tupac let them see
 a side of him beyond the Thug Life image, more about the human being. 
Before he was loved by the world, he was a young man trying to make his 
way in a society that is extremely cruel to the less fortunate. He made

to keep that inspiration alive.
It’s

legacy that Tupac did, you never actually die. You remain forever in the
 hearts and minds of people for generations to come. I knew that about 
him when we first spent time together in Atlanta, Georgia back in 1994.

He just has a different opinion. Respect it. Who is the Racist one now ? . I don’t know much about this, but I assume Lil Wayne brought attention to the rampant homicide and crime rates in black neighborhoods of black people by black people to combat the “police are the most dangerous things to our children” talk and now people are calling him white and a “coon” like they do with us. As usual, they erase a person’s identity for the sake of an opinion. Stay classy, BLM. Lil Wayne basically said he had never personally experienced racism.  But when he shot himself in the chest with his mom’s gun there was a white cop who drove him to the hospital because he knew they couldn’t wait on the ambulance. That the fact most of his fans are white is evidence that whites aren’t innately racist.  Naturally, black lives matter pounced on the dissenter. Here’s the video if anyone is interested “I don’t know what racism is.” The second video is him refusing to back off the comments. Is he pandering to his white fan base?  Maybe a little.  But do I believe him?  Yeah, I do. I feel like he’s genuine when he talks about this and it’s important to note that people dismissing his opinion because he might be “high”. Regardless if he’s high, or not, he has an opinion just as everyone else. It felt like they were trying to dig to just get something out of him that clearly wasn’t there. Trying to formulate the questions differently and nudging him to agree on this and that, broadening the questions to “So you never experienced.. any offensive behavior from any other color.. or..?”. Why is the white guy trying to get the black guy to agree that he did experience racism when he says he didn’t? How is it not racist or demeaning that the white guy is trying to ‘educate’ the black guy on what he’s experiencing? It’s clear they sat him down with the goal of having Wayne push the narrative and they were upset they didn’t really get what they wanted. that first video is important, particularly for how Shannon Sharpe responds to Wayne. You can tell Sharpe disagrees with wayne’s assertion that there is no racism, but he truly respects wayne’s opinion because, as wayne says, he personally has not experienced anything he can discern as racism, so thus he can not comment on it. Considering that Wayne is from the 17th ward of New Orleans, and his experience is shaped by that. Sharpe commends him for being straight forward and not embellishing and making up something to add to the narrative, and wayne’s honesty on the subject should similarly be respected.Not everyone may feel they experienced racism if they are from a minority background, and if they feel they can’t speak on the issue because of it, then so be it.Similarly, we shouldn’t take Wayne’s opinion that there is no racism and apply that to the lived experience of all minorities simply because he was saved by a white cop and performed infront of a white crowd, because his experience does not speak for others.

I feel like he’s genuine when he talks about this and it’s important to note that people dismissing his opinion because he might be “high”. Regardless if he’s high, or not, he has an opinion just as everyone else.

It felt like they were trying to dig to just get something out of him that clearly wasn’t there. Trying to formulate the questions differently and nudging him to agree on this and that, broadening the questions to “So you never experienced.. any offensive behavior from any other color.. or..?”.
Why is the white guy trying to get the black guy to agree that he did experience racism when he says he didn’t? How is it not racist or demeaning that the white guy is trying to ‘educate’ the black guy on what he’s experiencing?
It’s clear they sat him down with the goal of having Wayne push the narrative and they were upset they didn’t really get what they wanted.


that first video is important, particularly for how Shannon Sharpe responds to Wayne. You can tell Sharpe disagrees with wayne’s assertion that there is no racism, but he truly respects wayne’s opinion because, as wayne says, he personally has not experienced anything he can discern as racism, so thus he can not comment on it. Considering that Wayne is from the 17th ward of New Orleans, and his experience is shaped by that. Sharpe commends him for being straight forward and not embellishing and making up something to add to the narrative, and wayne’s honesty on the subject should similarly be respected.Not everyone may feel they experienced racism if they are from a minority background, and if they feel they can’t speak on the issue because of it, then so be it.Similarly, we shouldn’t take Wayne’s opinion that there is no racism and apply that to the lived experience of all minorities simply because he was saved by a white cop and performed infront of a white crowd, because his experience does not speak for others.

Don’t forget to leave due credit if used.The first design of the Gryphon-class Warp Fighters was made by Andrew Gillespie (KadenDark) and GK Designs, and has more or less become canon to the Star Trek community at this point.

I think I speak for a big part of the Star Trek community when I thank KadenDark and GK Designs for bringing this fighter to life, for it has inspired countless non-canon stories and the creativity of many artists. Thank you for this old achievement of yours, which still lives on to this day.This version above was made by me and the 3D model was a commissioning by Omar Tavera (Omardex) (http://omardex.deviantart.com/).

This model was made in Cinema 4D and rendered in Octane Render, using Substance Painter. Without that specific set-up, the model might not look the same.However, here is also a PSD file with a lot of rendered angles of the model, the background-less renders ready to be inserted and edited into any space scenes without the use of the 3D model.
