20th Century Propaganda calling for war...
This article discusses a Palestinian facebook page that was deleted by the company for “calling for violence” in Israel. The article closes with a leading member of the Fatah party saying that Minister Yuli Edelstein needs “lessons in human rights and freedom of expression.” Say what you will, but it seems to me that the internet, though only a cyber reality, is capable...
query of the day
so you hear your own voice in your head when you think, but when boys go through puberty…do their voices in their heads change too? Is it as gradual just-as-awkward change, or does the voice tend to sway on the already developed side? Do the voices in their heads crack too?
subtext in my writing
i wrote an essay six weeks ago that matches all of these requirements but length. you said that one was too specific and now you’ll say it’s too short. can’t you just read it and appreciate the words and concept? Gosh, academia. No wonder people find you boring. You don’t let yourself appreciate what’s right in front of you, just in a more creatively shaped box. ...
getting to know you
i was having one of those evenings where the bad of the wold outweighs the good so severely that you want nothing more than to lie in bed and melt into a puddle of translucent liquid. in that semi-immobile state I reached for one thing: my blukulele. It’s vibrations sooth me, my progress encourages me, and the practice fills my mind with music and chords and technique, drowning out all...

my new theme
has adjusted itself to a new look. I may need to reassess my instincts to go with this one. I miss flowers…
a post will eventually make its way here. in the meantime my hand (which he shook) and heart (which he took) are still throbbing.
I am seeing Bo Burnham. The 4th Album of the Strokes is being released. The 4th season of Mad Men comes out on DVD A few exciting things as my mind twists itself into further chaos, leaving me a single drop of sanity to get me through to summer. Hopefully I’ll use the drop sparingly…and nothing will collapse until then.
a "magical procrastinator"
Starting school again tomorrow. As the children attack my home with suitcases and noise and my built up home homework growls at me from my cluttered desk, I am covering myself in henna tatoos, painting my toe nails with glitter, and making dream catchers. ♦❀❂✭☾

Making good on his promise? Third Beirut album...
April 3 [2008?] A Letter from Zach It’s with great regret that I have to tell all of you that Beirut is canceling their summer European shows. My reasons for doing this are many, a lot of them personal, but I still feel I need to provide something of an explanation. The past two years have been a mindblowing experience. From the first indications that people were putting songs from Gulag...
i want to run so fast that my legs lift off the ground and i fly towards the sun and take a right and send me sailing across the stars. to other galaxies where all is quiet and black with sparkles, and no thoughts, no noise, no future to corrupt with ambitions. just nature on a scale we don’t comprehend, a task my mind can’t even try to solve. i want peace, and this escape knows...
on its happy snapin' way
"If I loved you...
…Then I would love you in any way I could. And if we could not touch, then I would draw strength from your beauty. And if I went blind, then I would fill my soul with the sound of your voice and the contents of your thoughts until the last spark of my love for you lit the shabby darkness of my dying mind.” ~Pushing Daisies, as spoken by the dreamy and adorable Raul Esparza

happy surprise of the day
i love the sound rubber bands make when you use them. not a pained sound nor an indifferent silent reaction, but it’s a stumped sound when they stretch, as if they didn’t not know they were capable of such lengths and bonding for two things. just delightful, genuine shock. a happy surprise of the day.
cleaning my room
stumbled upon bubble wrap. soultion? pop it really quickly, then throw it away. on a side note, who knew there was carpeting?

one of those moments
where i weep. my eyes burn now, by my soul is cleansed. there is a plan, there is hope. there was pain, i now cope. i have found a crystal clear in the instability.
Pi(e) themed facts for today: - Shows always name their first episode “Pilot.” On that note, the show Pushing Daises, about a pie shop owner, called theirs “Pie-lette.” - According to sporcle (a very credible source) the most popular pies are apple, chocolate or French silk, coconut (cream), pecan, berry (all kinds), key lime, lemon, pumpkin, cherry and banana cream, in...
