The one regret I have at 29? I always wish I could have, liked, travelled back in time and told the 15 year old version me loads of stuff. Whispered helpful things into her ear.

“The bullies are more fucked up than you are. Way more fucked up. Trust me on this. They act like they have power: But they have none. They’re lashing out. You just happened to be there. They’re sad and depraved.”

“Why does anyone care if you’ve kissed a boy yet? Or had sex? Why does anyone care? That’s your business.”

“You don’t need to be ashamed of your dad and the alcoholism. It’s not on you.”

“They bitch about your hair not being perfect? Why do they concentrate on your hair in the first place? What the fuck is up with them and their lives for even caring about such nonsense?” 

But, alas, time machines do not exist. That nice, shy terrified 15 year old is gone to me forever. I can’t make her feel better. 


Going to Georiga (Live 11-21-2016) 

The most remarkable thing about coming home to you is the feeling of being in motion again
It’s the most extraordinary thing in the world

I have two big hands and a heart pumping blood and a 1967 Colt .45 with a busted safety catch
The world shines as I cross the Macon county line
Going to Georgia

The most remarkable thing about you standing in the doorway is that it’s you
And that you’re standing in the doorway
And you smile as you ease the gun from my hand and I’m frozen with joy right where I stand
The world throws its light underneath your hair
Forty miles from Atlanta, this is nowhere
Going to Georgia

from Zopilote Machine (1995)

Played live for the first time in almost five years.

We've lost a George, a Prince, a poet named Cohen, a man made of stardust, and are getting Trumps. 2016 proves that we need time machines.

… No, seriously, what year is it? It’s Sunday night and I’m watching Justin Chatwin live a double life. … I’ve been here before. … Y’all, even “Doctor Who” didn’t want this much to change since 2013, and especially not in just this year alone.

  • James: You’ll never guess what just happened.
  • Sirius: You went out in the corridor, stumbled into an inter-dimensional time portal, which brought you 5,000 years into the future, where you took advantage of the advanced technology to build a time machine, and now you’re back to bring us all to the year 7010, where we are transported to work at the Department of Mysteries with telepathically controlled flying dolphins?
  • James: No. Lily kissed me.
  • Sirius: Who would ever guess that?

“My favourite film growing up had always been Back To The Future […] the lyrics of [Year 3000] - about time machines and flux capacitors - […] got me thinking about DeLoreans and Doc Emmett and Marty McFly… Marty McFly… That was it. The word had popped into my head. The moment it did, I knew I’d got it.” - Tom Fletcher.

@tommcfly: Happy 30th Birthday to the movie that changed my life #McFLY

Back to the Future AU

Dipper and Mabel are 17 and live in 1985. They adore grunkle Stan though everyone thinks he’s too weird. He’s obsessed with money, lives in a garage and is keen on building some crazy devices. One day he shows Dipper and Mabel a time machine that he invented. He spent 30 years to build it and wants to change something in the past. He shows how everything works and is ready to travel back, but then the terrorists appear and Stan gets shot while the twins manage to escape using the time machine.

And they find themselves in 1955. Now they need to go back somehow, so they go to Stan’s house (they’re surprised that he had a house once) and suddenly see that they have two grunkles instead of one. And during the next few days they struggle to figure out what will happen and why they never knew about the twin. Is that the reason Stan wanted to go back? To save his brother? And for some time they have no idea that Stan from the future is actually Stanley, not Stanford. And it confuses them even more. Because the real Stanford is the smart one who can built a time machine, not Stanley. And he’s the one who invented the flux capacitor. So what the hell is going on?

So there’s a bunch of problems and no time to solve them all because the twins have to go back to the future in two days or they will be stuck in 1955 forever.


I know this is quite weird, I just thought about that 30 years time gap and got a bit carried away.

So who wants more of it?

A paradox

Say you and I are very close friends and let’s assume we’re both the same age, 18. One day, you accidentally amputate my leg. After amputating my leg you feel the need to redeem yourself, to right your wrong by finding a method to regenerate lost limbs. You promise me that you’ll find the method in 42 years, in what you called Day Z. To do so you got into the field of biology and medicine, specialising in limb regeneration techniques. Now back to me. The next day, lets call it Day A, after losing my leg I hopped into my time machine and traveled 42 years to the future, to Day Z, and found 60 year old you. Congratulations, you had just successfully found a way to regenerate limbs. You fix my leg and I’m off to go. I return back to Day A and tell you that you don’t need to become a biologist and that you can go pursue your childhood dream of becoming a galactic assassin. The question now is, who fixed my leg? The moment you knew my leg was fixed Day Z ceased to exist and if Day Z ceased to exist so would my leg, and if my leg ceased to exist Day Z would happen, and if it would happen my leg would grow back, ad infinitum. Meaning that by your not becoming a biologist, no one fixed my leg, and if my leg isn’t fixed then you’ll still become a biologist. But, by becoming a biologist you would still have fixed my leg, and if my leg is fixed you won’t become a biologist. And it goes on and on….
Odin Verum’s paradox.

Please do be kind enough to point out any fallacies.
