freud-museum

anonymous asked:

hey so while we were in london, me and me girlfriend at the time visited the Freud museum, which is literally his house he lived in for the past few years of his life. The rest of our group had for upstairs and we were alone in his study, which was where he spent most of his time and actually died in. I heard what sounded like a deep sigh, turned to my girlfriend who was staring at me. I asked if that was her, she said she thought it was me. We looked out in the hallway and no one was there.

okay good to know freud’s spirit is still around on this earthly plane, that means i wont have to do any sort of complicated summoning to be able to complete my life’s goal of personally telling sigmund freud to eat shit

I’m getting to the point where I see how an autobiography can be fictional. Memory functions as the ‘master of fiction’ the act of remembering generates an imaginative and fictive account of the past. The conception of recollection does not operate along a linear or objective trajectory.

Keaton Henson

it’s been exactly a year (yesterday) since I met my idol/inspiration, Keaton Henson. It was the greatest day of my life. I’m becoming more obsessed with him as his popularity grows. It’s weird to think when I saw him live I was sat awkwardly close to him. I could even touch the speaker with my foot. It was such a small intimate gig and the atmosphere was incredible.

nothing will ever compare

love you keaton,
