Observations

"Basically, don't get pissed off over the fact that the way you feel about culture isn't some kind of universal consensus. Because if you do, you will end up feeling betrayed. And it will be your own fault. You will feel bad, and you will deserve it."

Moon over west covena was huge and white/ And I was like a patient on a table headed for the light/ Lean toward the center divider, feel the wind in my hair/ Keep a light up in your window/ I’m gonna be right there, I’m gonna be right there

t’s so good to learn that right outside your window
There’s only friendly fields and open roads
And you’ll sleep better when you think you’ve stepped back from the brink
And found some peace inside yourself; lay down your heavy load

first-few-desperate-hours:

when the sand crabs ran across your face
you didn’t even twitch
and a salt scent came across the water
impossibly rich
impossibly cold
we were just nineteen years old

and then you reached up and you reached out
we’d be staring at the water all day
and then you touched me
you were golden
you were giving the game away

And your timing was cruel

Questions that I fear, chapter one. The point of the song is that we are fairly well damaged by the legacy of the romantic poets. We think of love as this thing that is accompanied by strings, and it’s a force for good, and if something bad happens, then that’s not love. And the therapeutic tradition I come from, I used to work in therapy, also says it’s not love if it feels bad. I don’t know so much about that. I don’t know that the Greeks weren’t right. I think they were: that love can eat a path through everything. That it can destroy a lot of things on the way to it’s own objective which is just it’s expression of itself. My step-father loved his family. Now, he mistreated us terribly quite often. But he loved us. Well, that, to me, is something worth commenting on in the hopes of undoing what I see as terrible damage in the way that people talk about love as this benign, comfortable force. It’s not that. It’s wild.”

no really im serious nicki minaj repurposing a song about the male view of sexual climate into a destigmatized anthem of championing your own sexuality is the biggest thing to happen in the world of music in this century. im not joking this is the best song made in like hundreds of years
