Why do you live in your body like you will be given another? As if it were temporary. You starve it, you let anyone touch it, you berate it. Tell it that it should be completely different. You tug at your soft flesh, wish it thinner, wish it gone. You fall in love with those who praise the way it sighs under their hands, but who praises the way it holds up your weight, even when you are falling apart?

I have been editing essays for Bright Wall/Dark Room for YEARS now, and it’s been so exciting to see it (and be a part of helping it) go from Tumblr blog to magazine. If you have an iPad or an iPhone, download the app and start exploring!
And, because we already have most of the content for Issue 2 lined up and ready to go, I can say this with authority: you will not be sorry if you subscribe. There are some pretty amazing writers (including people who are known, you know, outside of Tumblr) talking about some pretty amazing films, and it’s only going to keep getting better.
Download! Read the free preview! Subscribe! Remember what it feels like to love movies and the people who make them!
Friends, neighbors, countrymen and women, movie lovers: I implore you to download the new Bright Wall Dark Room app and subscribe to the $1.99 monthly magazine because it features gorgeous, thoughtful, time-stopping content provided by good people.
Because for all the productivity, money counting, health monitoring, news updating, weather tracking apps we keep on our phones, maybe we’ve neglected to find one that might feed our creative hearts.
