“I ultimately decided that I couldn’t beat it more than three times a day, (I) was just too drained and chapped. That’s what Radiohead is about. You’re just drained and chapped, down there.”—Thom Yorke (via makeyoubald)
I CAN DEAL WITH THE RIPPED UP BODIES I AM A PRO AT THAT I CAN EVEN DEAL WITH THE RIDICULOUS AMOUNTS OF DICKS I SEE ON MY DASHBOARD (IDK WHY ALL THE PEOPLE I FOLLOW THINK PENISES ARE REALLY FUNNY BUT WHATEVER) BUT THIS SUCKS ALSO I AM RUNNING OUT OF CAPS LOCK THere im out
The whole idea of it makes me feel like I’m coming down with something, something worse than any stomach ache or the headaches I get from reading in bad light— a kind of measles of the spirit, a mumps of the psyche, a disfiguring chicken pox of the soul.
You tell me it is too early to be looking back, but that is because you have forgotten the perfect simplicity of being one and the beautiful complexity introduced by two. But I can lie on my bed and remember every digit. At four I was an Arabian wizard. I could make myself invisible by drinking a glass of milk a certain way. At seven I was a soldier, at nine a prince.
But now I am mostly at the window watching the late afternoon light. Back then it never fell so solemnly against the side of my tree house, and my bicycle never leaned against the garage
as it does today, all the dark blue speed drained out of it.
This is the beginning of sadness, I say to myself, as I walk through the universe in my sneakers. It is time to say good-bye to my imaginary friends, time to turn the first big number.
It seems only yesterday I used to believe there was nothing under my skin but light. If you cut me I could shine. But now when I fall upon the sidewalks of life, I skin my knees. I bleed.
“The people who wear pyjamas to the mall obviously couldn’t care less about art or anything of even mild interest.”- Jack White in Elle UK
Were you aware of this? I certainly wasn’t. I think I’ll print up some cards and hand them out to the mall pajama wearers to warn them that any love of art they may have is completely wiped out by their choice of errand-running attire. For expression through fashion is the only means of proclaiming one’s interest in the arts, is it not? Lord knows people can’t love ANY of the arts, or, apparently, ANYTHING interesting at all unless they show up at the mall in a well-tailored pair of pants, or, perhaps, dressed like a goth reject from a children’s television show about primary colors shot in 1978.
So remember kids: always dress to impress when you go to the mall. You wouldn’t want to offend Jack White’s artistic or sartorial sensibilities as he strolls from Sephora to Cinnabon.
I love you for this post. I like to wear my pyjamas to the shop. Fuck anyone who thinks it’s any of their business what I wear.
