Happy Valentine's Day, Lawrence
by The Lawrentian
Jan 01, 2015
“Valentine's Day is nearly here, and with that in mind I'd like to direct my energy towards love and the appreciation of those who inspire love within me. Love is the most powerful drug. It can drive men mad; it can make women swoon. I know personally it's been both wonderful and very painful at times.”

The screen grab simply depicted a man wearing loose-fitting, paint-splattered athletic pants and a hoodie with the hood up, face completely blacked out.”
