23rd of June

“anger is a short madness”
(Horace)

this is an interesting feeling. a kind of dull anger
like a man whose rages are restrained and predictable.

there is also a madness that wells and swells
like a vast ocean that is swallowed over night
only to egress from nowhere and drown a city.

this is an interesting feeling
(a dull anger and a short madness)

to no longer know where a door will take you
but to emerge and live without looking.

Sonya Sones, Stop Pretending

They have photographed the brain
and here is the picture, it is full of
branches as I always suspected,

each time you arrive the electricity
of seeing you is a huge
tree lumbering through my skull, the
roots waving.
Margaret Atwood, “I was reading a scientific article,” from The Animals in that Country (via folkmessiah)

agooduniverse next family tat? We each get a different character? Dad can be Wario, Alex is bowser (for simply being misunderstood, a softy on the inside), mom is one of those gigantic bullets or the flail on the leash, you can have your pick though I believe it would either be the overconfident Mario or the the blue turtle (more so for its unrelenting shell) and I’d be Boo (having nothing to do with my being scary but more to do with my having become the phantom of the family)? Whaddya say?

The biggest lie of human memory is that it feels true. Although our recollections seem like literal snapshots of the past, they’re actually deeply flawed reconstructions, a set of stories constantly undergoing rewrites. Jonah Lehrer, from “When Memory Commits an Injustice,” The Wall Street Journal (13 April 2012)

I was left
quite alone
using up the darkness.

Death From Above 1979 - Trainwreck 1979 

I like it cause it’s DFA, but it hasn’t got that roughness…that made them stand out. I guess we’ll see how the full album is like when it comes out.
