one of my favorites

I want them to be hopelessly in love with something, I don’t really care what it is. But if our record provides a soundtrack to a really specific time in their life in which they’re inspired or excited or sad or anything; that’s what I want, cos that’s what my favourite records have done for me.

I am the question to all answers.

Tablo, “Nocturne”

In “Lesson 1,” Tablo says, “Genius is not the answer to all questions. It’s the question to all answers.” He’s saying that people think that a genius is someone who knows all the answers, but a true genius is someone who questions all the answers. It is a critique on how society and people accept things as they are without thinking for themselves. In this quote, he implies that he is the genius because he questions all answers.

Come here
and take off your clothes
and with them
every single worry
you have ever carried.
My fingertips on your back
will be the very last thing
you will feel
before sleeping
and the sound of my smile
will be the alarm clock
to your morning ears.
Come here
and take off your clothes
and with them
the weight of every yesterday
that snuck atop your shoulders
and declared them home.
My whispers will be the soundtrack
to your sweet dreams
and my hand
the anchor to the life
you will come open your eyes to.
Come here
and take off all your clothes
—  Tyler Knott Gregson
Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough.

Happy Halloween guys and enjoy!!


Happy Birthday Joan Crawford!!

(March 23rd, 1905 - May 10th, 1977)

“Here was a star to her fingertips: fully concious of her rather horsy glamour, using her big eyes, her wide gash mouth to splendid effect. Her acting range was limited, but she conveyed an agreeable energy and dash, a hardness and determination, that ensured one’s attention for the whole length of a performance. No one could weep like her—hoarse whimpers under fur hats, tears trickling in black mascara rivers down those gaunt cheeks—or smile like her, as though someone had cut her face from ear to ear. Her beauty had a massive quality, baroque and onyx-hard.”

-Charles Higham
