Anki

  • Let’s be honest, you’re way more likely to revise or make flashcards if they’re on your phone.

  • You get coins to buy stuff for your avatar!
  • You can join a party and do quests, which you complete by doing your tasks.

Coldworld - This Empty Life

Your empty eyes can’t bare no sight 
Your empty hope can’t speak of her
Your empty heart can’t bare a life,
You’re good as nothing, makes you cry
This empty life 

Rostok Area tranquil
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. ambient

Since I suffer from annoying insomnia, I’ve decided to finally have the Audacity and record some of the calming noises from Shadow of Chernobyl, Rostok area map.

Maybe this will help you out as well, as a sort of an ASMR…

If you cant attend life drawing sessions. This is the best thing for you

Let me show you something I recently found : Croquis Cafe!

You get to see models of different colors and shapes in a life drawing setting. They move and breath while posing (breathing like in real life :O) ambient music is playing in the background and you have 1, 2  and 5 minute sessions. I find it very helpful , you should try it.

redeemer (palette cleanse)

Done wrong for years
and now we’re here,
conjuring up excuses
over whiskey & mountains
of discarded cigarettes.

       I sat back
       watching trails of smoke
       billow forth
       from a mouth manifesting
       mirages
       of reconciliation.

Warring bodies
assume natural states,
no longer plagued
by incessant nagging
of egos damaged
beyond recognition.

       The wreckage
       was quite beautiful,
       broken glass shimmered
       as winds howled
       through fist sized holes
       in cheap plaster.


Armistice allows
for elaborate silences
to be explored,
mined for all their worth,
just as times before,
when love’s thirst
lead to fits
of glorious madness.

        Yet still,
        you could not fathom
        how this could be,
        and there was no other way
        to spell it out.

Have a Nice Life

Johnny, can you talk?”

“Yes.”

“Do you like it here at Pennhurst?”

“No.”

“Why not John?”

“Um. There’s…”

“Let me ask you this John. Do you remember living anywhere except Pennhurst?”

“No.”

“Do you like talking to the people up here?”

“Yeah.”

“Why John?”

”‘Cause they like to talk to me.“

“How about the other kids, the ones that can talk, do they like to talk to you too?”

“Yes.”

“Do you like to talk to them better than the kids up here?”

“Yes.”

“Have you been talking more lately or less?”

“Less.”

“Why are you here in Q2 John?”

“I did something wrong I wasn’t supposed to be doing.”

“So they punished you and put you here?”

“Yes.”

“And they do this to you all the time John?”

“Yes.”

“Why are you here in Q2 John?”

“I did something wrong I wasn’t supposed to be doing.”

“Why are you here in Q2 John?”

“I did something wrong I wasn’t supposed to be doing.”

Disintegration Loops (after William Basinski)

I only find me in the twilit streets.
I am conflict, and conflict is within me.
In the heaviness of dreams, I hear
only the thickness of a hundred bells.
LOOK! I have fear - among other night-mares
- inside of me, that I’ve never had before.
HEAR! My trembling, like a multitude of ghosts,
phantoms over a blackened grassland
just before an evening shines its moon.
FEEL! I suffocate in the thickness
of a thousand biographies ending, smothering me,
like books in free-fall eventually burying me. Look at me!
I am that one soldier maimed,
the enemy you looked upon with disdain,
my yells of pain now only echoes on a field;
should fortune smile, it could remain
in someone’s memory. People remember the glory;
I remember the shit, piss, the stench of fear,
my future unmarked grave. Thus, call me selfish.
I only find me in the twilit streets
because I walk alone. I only find me
in the deceptive terza rima of the changing
positions and dispositions of the times.
