The original post features these two images (without attribution) and this accompanying quote:
“The vulgar man is always the most distinguished, for the very desire to be distinguished is vulgar.”
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Before I spent this two hours searching for the sources, I thought these were a breathtakingly fucking gorgeous (and I don’t mind admitting: arousing) photographic diptych.
Alas… although it demonstrates an image sommelier’s sense of pairing, it’s little more than an admittedly most adept effort at accomplishing the same end as a horny teenage boy ‘Photoshopping’ Emma Watson’s head onto Stoya’s body.
The difference is that adapto painstakingly cites his source material. The above can’t be bothered with such concerns, implying a rather disconcerting lack of respect.
A shame really, for–as the saying goes–what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
