Authenticity Is Invaluable

I just stumbled across the lovely blog: Vodka Latte Freshly Squeezed. I don't know how good that sounds to be honest. I like my lattes with soy, and my vodka plain. Never the less it is a cute site, and I fell in love with this polka dots and docs photo. The Jim Jarmusch quote was thrown in there for good measure. I'd be interested to hear what you think. Is originality non-existent? Hmm...

“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said “It’s not where you take things from, it’s where you take them to.” - Jim Jarmusch


  1. I'm going to go for authenticity as opposed to originality and steal the hair from the last image. I've been lusting over the candy floss coloured hair all summer but as a brunette this is something I am much more likely to pull off. We will see where I can take it! Lovely blog xx

  2. Red could our bfs kisse us,m?:P

  3. I agree with brooke and Jim above, authenticity, originality is never original these
    someone always knows the secret.
