- 5 percent of children 5 to 17 have disabilities.
- 10 percent of people 18 to 64 have disabilities.
- 37 percent of adults 65 and older have disabilities.
In my interview with Kelly Deasy, Student Disabilities Services Coordinator she discussed the context for Disability Awareness Month and the role of the community in understanding the discussion of disability. The context chosen for Disability Awareness Month for 2012 was Art, Expression and Disability. The office promoted this theme via workshops, its keynote speaker, active in the forum of understanding disability as a social justice issue. As well as a film that featured artists with disabilities.
As we move forward, and continue to question our roles in ableism and creating a community that acknowledges and respects disabilities:
Six Things Central to Disability Awareness
1. Disability is not a special condition
2. We must be mindful of how we build our environment
3. Confront our own fears and privileges.
4. Be aware and open to barriers.
5. Continue to talk about disability as a social justice issue.
6. One size does not fit all. Don’t make assumptions.
7. Be thoughtful and creative regarding access.———————————————————————————- Lana Del Rey With defiant and youthful hubris Lana Del Rey released her first full length major label album in January of this year. And the album shines through the melancholy with alternative indie pop charm. Its rough edges and trance ballads, a bold middle finger to those that wrote off the artist (formerly known as) Lizzie Grant as another shallow one hit wonder. Which doesn’t seem so fair to the 25-year old controversial, and unconventionally commercial New York born starlet. With a raspy soprano voice, Del Rey pouts her way into your subconscious by chanting her hooks over symphonic melodies from the place old souls go to contemplate all the philosophies of life, love and liberty.With vigor and poise, Lana Del Rey makes claim to a sector of the mainstream industry still recovering from the love coma that Adele has had us in for almost a year. With tongue in check and heart in hand, Lana Del Rey writes with a mature angst, that informs her effort.With regard to her artistry, Born to Die, Off To The Races, Blue Jeans, and Video Games are my personal picks for the strongest tracks for mainstream exposure. While the subject matter is most certainly not revolutionary, her stand alone resilience is its own story of ‘the blonde we underestimated.’ Her odes are genuine, and their fawning, although sickening to the cynic, is a hymn to the romantic, “Heaven is a place with you.”As a mainstream artist beginning her corporate career, there is indeed an orchestra of emotion woven into the each of the twelve tracks that she wrote, and co-wrote herself. An orchestra that could be argued uses too many of the same ideas and feelings. But the smooth, seamless production of the album compensates for this in a way that is easy and painless. You could listen to this whole album during a single 50 minute session of French class (translation not included.)I am of the opinion that tracks like Diet Mountain Dew, and Dark Paradise are soft, catchy transitions between brazen, bolder songs like, National Anthem, Radio, Carmen and Million Dollar Man. With National Anthem for a dose of social commentary, and Carmen to appease the listener that needs a narrative.After listening to this album thirty times, the last two tracks start to make more sense. Summertime Sadness, and This Is What Makes Us Girls are a last splash of character and they close the album with bewitched beauty.Laura Booth criticized Lana Del Rey for being, “a singer with all the charisma of a corpse,” and it seems that thousands have caught a healthy dose of necrophilia.But don’t just take my word for it…http://www.times-age.co.nz/news/indie-pop-borntodie/1279887/Postscript:Lana has just won the BRIT award for International Breakthrough Artist, with her album, Born to Die certified Gold in Australia and Switzerland. ———————————————————————— by Stacey-Anne Love Staff Writer
The hum of the tattoo gun in the next room makes it difficult to hear Jenny’s soft voice, so I instinctively edge forward as she describes her journey as an artist, and more specifically an artist of permanence and prestige in a world dominated by men. Her charming, yet nervous laughter eases us both into the interview.
I’ve caught her on a break, on one of her busiest days of the week. It’s a Saturday afternoon, and the walk-ins just keep coming. Jenny’s clients come from varying demographics; the suburban soccer mom, the young college woman, the career hipster.
I first met Jenny “Bunny” Young at Timeless Tattoos in August 2011 when a friend of mine was having a tattoo touched up. Jenny worked with her to improve the design, and brought new life to a tattoo that my friend was no longer pleased with. In retrospect I met Jenny’s work before I met her. In fact, two of my friends had their first tattoos done by Jenny “Bunny.” As I look around her work area I see the quirky, girlish femininity of a woman that is very much herself amongst men. This resilient yet humble confidence reminds me of why I count Jenny as one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met.
Though she came from obscure beginnings, Jennifer [Bunns] Young has made a name for herself at Timeless Tattoos. She grew up in a rural town in Minnesota. She ended up finishing up college all the way in Decatur, GA at Agnes Scott College. Young quickly found a place in the Art Department at Agnes Scott. Although she had only intended to minor in art, with the support and the encouragement that she found in the department, she decided to narrow her focus and major in art. Soon after her graduation from Agnes Scott, Young began apprenticing under Craig Foster at Skinwerks Tattoo & Design in Carrollton, GA.
After six years in the business, and three and a half years at Timeless Tattoo, Young makes a living in permanent etchings and unfading ink. When I ask her what she loves about her job, she chuckles and simply says “everything.” She goes on to explain that one of the most meaningful things about her job is that it satisfies her love of meeting new people. She is open and honest about the fact that many of the personality types are multi-facated. With a maturity and professionalism that defines the self-awareness of Jennifer Young, she remarks, “The most difficult [personality] types help define who I am…because it’s how I respond to them that reveals my character.”
For Jenny her craft helps her learn about new people, and vice versa. As with her clients, Jenny confesses that she likes the challenge that her art presents. Furthermore, appointments and walk ins. You never know what you’re gonna do.” As she continues to expound on her art Jenny continues, “In practical terms, the art form is one in which you have to follow through.”
And one has to wonder if anything has ever challenged this intuitive and intelligent woman.
Q: Sounds as though you’ve had all smooth sailing. Were there setbacks?
A: Only mental setbacks. I had to gain confidence. I had to draw on living, breathing, moving, sometimes screaming or smelly human beings without an eraser. I had to learn to stand up for myself with disrespectful (and occasionally sexually harassing) clients in a professional manner. I had to deal with high volume foot traffic and come up with on the spot artwork, and as an introvert, I had to deal with being in the semi-public eye. Maintaining a balance between confidence and teachable humility is a life-time process, but it’s a joyful one!
Q: What do your tattoos say about you?
A: I began getting tattoos at 18. Everyone has their own style. Enjoy working with them. “The older I get, the better choices I have (made).” I don’t regret any of them but if I had a blank canvas I would choose different things. My tattoos are similar to “A scrapbook” – a collection of symbols that are meaningful to me.
Q: What were your first tattoos?
A: I was really into comics back in the day. It is a Sandman piece.
Q: Why Timeless?
A: I am honoured to work at Timeless. Cap Sumzki began tattooing while I was much younger. He’s been tattooing longer than I’ve been alive. He pioneered the art form and the local laws. He has raised standards in the industry (health standards and the sheer quality of the art)
Q: What are your future goals?
A: In the short term I am always improving my artwork, and my craft. I am spending time on my illustrations, and comics. In the long term, depending on the economy, I would love to have my own business. I would like to publish books, and illustrations.
As my brief interview comes to a close there is a mantra that resounds. A mantra that I am sure has guided, and will continue to guide Jennifer Young into a bright and fulfilling future.
“Keep producing art.”

Dear Santa, slow that sleigh down
Are you not feeling the holiday spirit? Well, you are certainly not alone. Neither am I. Even with the trees changing and the demand for scarves and boots as a fashion staple, it’s hard to come to grips with the end of another year. It’s all zipped by so quickly. Now, don’t get me wrong, Christmas used to be my favorite time of year. I’ve often looked forward to family, friends and being on vacation, but it’s grown bittersweet with the build up of anticipation. Beyond the winter fanfare and the mistletoe I just need the commercial sector to relax.
Christmas has been subtly creeping around for maybe weeks now. On my most recent visit to Lenox Square, Santa Claus and his elves were decked out in their most festive red and green attire, 5 days after halloween. I kept thinking about how fantastic his beard looked, and imagined that it must have been toasty in that suit. Then it hit me like a bad dream,
“Shouldn’t Santa be up at the North Pole getting everything ready?”
Totally unacceptable. Not to mention, have you seen the wreaths in Decatur? What is going on? It’s not even Thanksgiving. What sacrilege. Mid-October begins the quick paced downward spiral of holiday mayhem. With Halloween continuing to be the second-highest grossing commercial holiday in the United States, topped only by Christmas candy and costumes are bought in pounds and racks. How does one not get caught up in trick-or-treating? The candy continues to be delightful and the kids are fantastic in their miniature version of revelry. But it’s the first step in a whirlwind of buying things and decorations. Ornaments for our homes and our hearts. One more thing to encourage happy in a year we’ve spent being very unhappy.
I just need the commercial sector to relax. I know I’ve already said that, but I’m serious. Is there any chance that each holiday could have it’s share of time spent with family rather than getting lost in malls. After all that’s how I found Santa on Saturday. I wasn’t looking for him on purpose. Nonetheless I’m certain that as the weeks go on and all the kids get wound up for Christmas there’ll be long lines of them hoping that Santa can come through for them. Hopefully they haven’t had the year too hard, and Christmas will be a reprieve.
All the while, I’m receiving emails for new payment plans for the upcoming Black Friday. The ads have been everywhere. Unfortunately with the state of the US economy it almost seems cruel to play ads that encourage us to buy Christmas gifts with school supplies, and pay for them on layaway.
I do imagine however that many families and individuals have been working endlessly to keep a tight reign on their budgets and will be buckling up even tighter as Christmas approaches.
There seems no way around it. Christmas is going to come. Just don’t remind me so early next year.

More than Art
I remember the day I got my first tattoo.
It was an icy cold April afternoon and I all bundled up as a bystander, I watched anxiously while my good friend had a Russian Cyrillic phrase tattooed onto the arch of her foot. For her it represented her love of languages, and her new found obsession with Russian. In that moment it only seemed to represent “sometimes beauty is pain.”
As she winced in agony I reconsidered the whole thing. Perhaps a tattoo was not a good idea after all. Curled up in a corner of the studio I laughed nervously as I tried to take her mind off the pain. It was pointless. So I distracted myself with the hundreds of designs, like a tapestry across the walls of the unassuming parlor.
We’d been looking for a parlor in Decatur for a while. Granted our demands were specific. We needed a parlor that would be willing to take on Russian Cyrillic in simple script, at a reasonable price, and willing to work on that mangled looking foot of hers.
When she didn’t like the service at Ink & Dagger during our consultation there, we began to look beyond 30030. Being unsatisfied with Cloud Dancer Tattoo, we looked in at Permanent Ink (http://www.permanentinkatl.com/Permanent_Ink/Shop.html) at 3540 East Ponce De Leon Ave. It was impeccably clean, offered friendly and prompt service, provided a number of private workrooms and posted their tattoo and piercing prices in their waiting area. So what sealed the deal? A senior with a number of detailed pieces had recommended the parlor.
In a rare moment affordability and quality seemed to intersect. So our visit was not as brief as we anticipated. After thirty minutes the line of Russian script was branded black against her pale skin. It was in fact a beauty of a thing, plain, yet unique. I am certain that our artist had never had his Russian proofread before.
I am up next. Anxious as ever, I chicken out of my initial proposal to have the words “From Dusk Till Dawn” inscribed along my foot, and near my ankle. The thought of enduring four words worth of pain on one of the more sensitive parts of my body whisks me away. I chose instead to have it done on my left shoulder.
Even in its impromptu etchings I had considered what it would look like for months. I even sketched it with a sharpie just to make sure. After all, it’s in memory of my cousin and represents her spiritual and moral mentorship in my life. I wanted to be sure to honor that.
Our artist proved to be a grammar Nazi. He painstakingly double checked the spelling and phrasing of the words I had chosen, with “Till” being the main word in contestation. Once we clear up the ambiguity between the contraction ‘til and the word till, the initiation begins.
I clenched my teeth, anticipated the worst, and let the needle do its work.
That was sophomore year. I’m a senior now.
Since then I’ve been back to Permanent Ink, and although I may have spent a few extra dollars for the sake of quality control, I have had good experiences.
I got a second tattoo done the day after Jamaica’s Independence Day. It’s a green and yellow hibiscus with the words, “Made in Jamaica: Est. 1988” Much like my first tattoo it’s a lot more personal than people realize.
For one thing it reminds me of where I come from. It speaks to the distinguishing beauty of all that I call home. It reminds me of my family, and all they mean to me weather we are together, or apart.
Even beyond these experiences, I have discovered that I love tattoos. Often I admire others individuals tattoos, and find myself either moved, or startled by the creativity and imagination of many of them.
I view tattoos as more than skin deep, as more than art.
Some instinctively render question marks, and others speak so loudly to the person’s personality that I smile in disbelief that one image could testify to a soul.
I hope you’ll join me in my journey as a I take a closer look at the tattoo world, and will be willing to share the stories of your tattoos.
Review of Harbour Bar & Fish House
Tattooing in Atlanta
Of the WARRIOR kind
by Stacey-Ann Love
Warrior is the story of the Conlon family, continually caught between duty, responsibility and allegiance. The film follows the grueling transformation of the two brothers from marine and schoolteacher, to warriors. It also weaves the story of three very different men as they try to make something of what’s left of their family.
The Conlon brothers are played by Tom Hardy (Inception) and Joel Edgerton, (Erskineville Kings,Star Wars Episode III) both brothers looking for a way out. The backdrop of the film is Philadelphia, with the mortgage bubble and war in Afghanistan being pertinent focus points of the plot, ultimately making these brothers the faces of our everyday heroes.
Completing the film’s trio of masculine antagonists is two-time Academy Award nominee Nick Nolte (Tropic Thunder, The Beautiful Country). Nolte portrays Paddy Conlon, their frail, ever failing father with fervor and consequence. Nolte’s character tries persistently to bridge the gaps between the three, to no avail. Amidst his own struggles with addiction, he trains his younger son as he prepares for Sparta, the Mix Martial Arts (MMA) winner takes all event of the decade.
Soon after Conlon begins training his younger son, Frank Campana played by Frank Grillo (The Shield, Prison Break) takes Edgerton back into his MMA club, and with trepidation trains and repairs him to fighting condition. Then in a somewhat predicable sequence of events Edgerton’s character gets a second chance to pursue his professional career. Capana takes a risk on him, entering him in the Sparta Competition.
With this pivotal choice, all roads lead to Atlantic City.
Fighting for dreams bigger than themselves, they both must face difficult choices, with life changing consequences. The climax of these choices put on display in the largest mixed martial art contest of all time.
In a moment of suspense and anxiety, two brothers meet as true opponents. Gaunt with exhaustion the older brother pleads with what is left of his younger brother’s rationality. As the crowds roar and cheer, they both are larger than life. Their bodies slaughtered by pain and covered in blood and scars. The only thing standing in the way of their greatness is each other.
Even though I don’t often condone violence, when you’re backed into a corner, it’s fair to fight.
As such, be cautiously prepared for a realistic view into the world of mixed martial arts.
It should be noted that in an unique yet universal way, this film is a riveting story of resilience. Spurred by desperation and down right gritty momentum, these brothers fight through failure and fear for the things they care about most. Their fight continually speaks to the strength and integrity of the human spirit. Ultimately, each brother must learn to face demons bigger than the cage.
The truest question that this film stirs is, “have you ever fought for something?” “Have you ever really fought long and hard for something?” This family is merely a foil for every single family that has ever chased hope. For the families that have fought, and continue to fight for their futures. And frankly, when MMA runs in the family, people get hurt.
Their fight is only made more real by the artistic direction of Gavin O’Connor, and complimented by Masanobu Takayanagi’s fast-paced, vivid cinematography. Which is most certainly the backbone of this knock-out film.
Despite a slow start, and awkward moments of dialogue Warrior portrays the journey of a family towards redemption with all the makings of dysfunction and mayhem.
Keeping you informed: Black Cat and Beyond
by Stacey-Ann Love
With Black Cat in full swing, the Profile would like to take this opportunity to ensure that all those involved are fully informed for this year’s festivities. There have been a number of small, yet crucial changes to the format of a few of the week’s key events, such as the Community Service drive, and Field Day.
So let us begin. Firstly, changes to Field Day. There will be a ensemble of field games vs. the field hockey round robin. There is also now a glorious, three tiered trophy for the class winner, which is on display in Alston.
In a recent interview with Mortar Board President, Tesia Ogletree ’12, in response to those with strong allegiances to field hockey as the main field day event,
“Field games have always been a part of the Black Cat tradition, but in the past few years, they have not been included.”
This was said in direct response to students that have openly disputed the shift from field hockey as the main event on Field Day, based on the assumption of field hockey as an immovable tradition.
The field games that have been scheduled for Thursday afternoon, have been included in the hopes of creating greater participation amongst the classes. By creating the opportunity for a number of different teams to participate from each class, these field game events will hopefully foster class spirit, and team involvement.
Secondly, changes to Community Service. This year, a clothing drive has been adopted instead of the annual canned goods drive, again to encourage greater participation in this aspect of Black Cat week. The collection station for this clothing drive is on the first floor of Alston student center.
With regard to the policy of changing mascots, Mortar Board has indicated that in the future mascots will need to be selected by elections in which at least 51% of the first year class has voted. Furthermore, by the Monday of Black Cat week of Sophomore year, a new mascot must be chosen if the first year class elects to change their mascot. In this case the class of 2014 will be The Red Foxes.
Lastly, the only change to Junior Production is that prior to the start of the evening’s program, classes will only have 30 minutes to prepare instead of an hour.
As the week winds up, be mindful of: Have your teams together. Be ready to compete and participate. Good conduct is essential. Donate to the clothing drive, and when donating be careful to read the list of things that can be donated.
Mortar Board is A National Honorary Senior Society, and for all intensive purposes at Agnes Scott operates primarily as a delegated board of seniors during Black Cat week. With a community service focus Mortar Board hopes to become involved in reading programs in local schools, with continued efforts to host other events outside of Black Cat. As well, Mortar Board 2011-2012 recruits and selects Mortar Board 2012-2013.
Hidden In Plain View
by Stacey-Ann Love
The music is loud, and walking through the front door is a little scary for an introvert, but The Corner Pub is crucially laid back. It’s got an old school, rustic vibe, with its varnished wrap around bar, filled with Once your eyes and ears adjust to all the audible and visual stimuli long enough to find a seat, your other senses will be pleasantly surprised. Unlike a lot of other places to drink, The Corner Pub doesn’t have that smell of stale beer and cigarettes.
So, where is the Corner Pub you ask? Down the street, and around the corner, hidden in plain view. All jokes aside, it’s down the street, next door to your favorite local pasta spot, Figo that is, at East Decatur Station. Yes, East Decatur Square is a queer place, with its hodgepodge of rentals disguised as an eclectic shopping district but with equally eclectic establishments like The Corner Pub it suits Decatur fine. Joshua and Bethy Samford opened the Corner Pub in 2004 in the historic Oakhurst district and moved after a devastating fire, and have made a new home in Decatur.
But I digress.
If you sit at the wrap around bar, you’ll have a bird’s eye view into the kitchen, but if you order a Red Stripe you’ll worry less about who’s who in the apron back there. With an array of brews, ales and alcoholic beverages, you’re sure to find something you like. Of course, I always recommend a Red Stripe for the beer lover, put that’s a little pricy, so go ahead and order a Bud or a Miller High, sit back and relax.
The ambiance is a little intimidating on the inside if you’re not a regular, but you can always change that. But if you’re feeling really shy, there’s an patio, tables, chairs, your choice. That’s one thing that The Corner Club has a lot of, choice.
I chose the Catfish sandwich with a large side of fries, but those margaritas sure looked delicious, garnished to perfection. Don’t be afraid to try something new. There are a number of non-meat options to be considered, and a number of non-alcoholic items to drink. Go ahead, it’s worth a try.
Whether you’re feeling for a drink or a filler, or just want to get away from the regular faces at Trackside, go for it, take a walk or otherwise a short ride to East Decatur Station, and flash you’re black ring, you might encounter a friendly face. I did.

Date Raffle 2011
by Stacey-Ann Love
What a wild ride! Every year Witkaze goes the extra mile to give us a show. Date Raffle 2011 was no exception. With over 20 eligible bachelors and 3 sexy bachelorettes, the night was primed for decadence. From the first smooth young man to the last unwavering auction paddle, the night was riddled with the unexpected. Characteristics of Date Raffle 2011: One, two, three lap dances, a massage oil demonstration, riotous laughter, cheers, applause, and strip teases everywhere! It was raining, raining, raining, from the wet zone, to the last chair in the back row. It it is to be seen how Witkaze will outdo themselves next year.
What are you doing this weekend?
by Stacey-Ann Love
Is your bank account a little dry? Then avoid grocery shopping this weekend. There’s no doubt about it, the price of food is on the rise. Earlier this week, a friend of mine posted a Facebook status mentioning the increase in the price of the McDonald’s Happy Meal, and in case you’re wondering, she is fact over the age of thirteen. However she was none the less annoyed at an approximate seventy cent increase.
So when fast food is getting pricy, why not try some place new? Of course eating out is relatively a little more expensive than cooking at home, but when you can’t blow dollar bills in the supermarket aisles, why not get ‘bang for your buck.’ Or at least a reasonable meal for a reasonable price.
May I humbly suggest paying a visit to Decatur Diner, if you have not already. I visited it for the first time last weekend, and was pleased with the homely New York Greek-Italian atmosphere, the food and the service. The food was delicious and I enjoyed my experience.
So, my friend and I decided at 11pm to get something to eat, and that’s the first thing, it is open 24 hours, and you can’t miss it on the corner of East Ponce. Number 205 to be exact. The psychedelic neon signs make it a landmark.
We were greeted promptly and politely, and offered a booth and a tri-fold menu. Our waitress smiled, and although she seemed to have been having a long shift, she maintained professionalism, took our drink orders, and returned soon after for our food orders. We asked her a few questions, about portions and asked about the breakfast menu.
“Is breakfast food available all day,”
With the affirmative, my companion proceeded to order a large plate of French Toast. I ordered a hot italian eggplant parmigiana, and chose french fries over greek potatoes. I’m not certain what I was expecting, but the massive sandwich and the hearty serving of french fries took us both off guard.
My meal, was succulent and delicious, and worth every cent. The french toast was tasty as well, syrup included. We both took to-go servings, spent less than $15 and the kicker, was those french fries tasted just as great after I microwaved them. That’s hard to come by.
There is also a dessert, and baked goods section if you have a sweet tooth.
By the way, prior to my late night visit I used to think it strange that individuals would dine with strange eyes looking in, but don’t worry just tweak the blinds, and you’ll have as much privacy as you’d like.
It should be noted, that this is growing popular amongst the Agnes Scott community, so don’t be surprised to find other Scotties as patrons at this establishment. But if they’re being too loud, just give them a dirty look and they’ll remember they’re in public.
If you’d like to have a look at the menu before you give it a try:
What are you doing this weekend?
by Stacey-Ann Love
Caught between infinite to do lists, homework assignments and the fanfare of the sixth annual Decatur Book Festival, did we have energy left to honour Labor Day? It seemed somewhat strange to me that there were so few promotions for campus wide community service during Labor Day weekend.
Is something wrong with this picture?
It is possible that I have transposed cultural meaning and superimposed it on this very American holiday. Where I’m from, in Jamaica we spend ‘Labor Day’ completing community service projects that are designed to promote rural and urban development, but more importantly, community pride.
But even beyond Labor Day weekend, how does one “engage the intellectual and social challenges of our times,” by watching Jersey Shore reruns during the long weekend? Granted there is nothing wrong with spending the weekend off with your television on. However, to turn our minds off during a national holiday established to commemorate the fortitude of the average American seems counter-intuitive. How are we spending our free time?
Perhaps there is a deficiency here.
Even beyond being pretentious, I might suggest that perhaps there has been an increase in the degree of apathy and indifference to our community. To be fair, many of our schedules do not allow us to participate actively and consistently in community service. Regardless of this, we could be doing so much more.
Places like the Salvation Army, Hagar House, the Global Village School and the Decatur Book Festival are a few projects that I can think of in Decatur that are open to volunteers. I am certain that there are numerous others.
It further worries me that the position of volunteer coordinator that existed from 2009-2010 no longer exists and does not currently have an equivalent. This is most disheartening, yet there may be hope for us yet. After all, a number of students are giving their time and energy to causes they support and believe in. It may be simply that Agnes Scott women are volunteering via other means, independent of the college. It’s full time that we inquire, and join them in making a difference in our greater community.
