“I think that the position of a criminal is the same as an artist as it’s outside a lot of social structures. If you choose to you’re privileged with a unique perspective because you’re transgressing and traversing different social groups. There’s a way that criminals see the world that’s quite heightened, there’s an immediacy that not to dissimilar to the way in which an artist can put a spin on an object.”

So I came across this article on The Blackmail (which if you haven't already checked out i suggested you get your keister right on over there) about Jack Charles. This man, Aboriginal Elder/junkie/renowned actor/cat burglar, seems generally pretty dang fascinating. I was pleased to find that there is a documentary being released about his life habits/views made by Amiel Courtin-Wilson. It's worth a look-see.
