Kill the Night

“Whatever you do, don’t be bored. This is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive. And things are just starting.”

James Blake - “A Case of You” (Joni Mitchell cover)

Damn. I forgot how much I loved this song But this cover is… amazingly everything it could ever be.

"You’re in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you darling
And I would still be on my feet
I would still be on my feet

EVERYTHING.

Bob Marley on how to love a woman
“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect - you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.”
- Bob Marley

Francis and the Lights - “Darling, It’s Alright”

I had to revisit Francis this morning… and then I remembered why I heart him. (I’m not going to mention that I listened to “For Days” 5x in a row because it has “Square Biz” written all over the bassline and “A Modern Promise” oozes everything Prince did in every album from ‘78 to ‘83.)This video is great. The dance break is everything a proper dance break should be… James Brown, Elvis, Chuck Berry, and Diddy. And that hair…. <3.

Everything.

We humans are capable of greatness. - Carl Sagan

Atlas Shrugged: Part 1 (Trailer)

I’m so excited for this. 

At the moment I can’t really articulate how much Atlas …

While the anti-altruism sentiments in Ayn Rand’s works are not aligned with my own, so much of my morality, sense of integrity, honor, truth, passion, and self-obligation are exemplified through the protagonists in this book. 

I’ve found that the people who I develop true connections with have strong feelings about both Atlas and Fountainhead… obviously not the same, but strong feelings nonetheless. These people I keep close to me (though some not in proximity) each of them is “a good man in a storm”. The women…strong, driven, ‘I’ll make this happen on my own’, future rulers of the world. The men…strong, driven, ‘I’m here if you need me’, future leaders of the world. And I expect nothing less of them, or of myself, than… everything. Not for me, for themselves.

We shall see if the movies live up…

**I also realize that a lot of people are going to attempt to equate this movie as mirroring current times, and those “teabaggers” are going claim it…**

The paragon of bone-thin beauty used to be Kate Moss, who has been replaced on the thinspo blogs by Kiera Knightley, Nicole Richie and nameless Victoria’s Secret models. The most revered, however, is Mary-Kate Olsen, who was admitted to rehab for her eating disorder in 2004. The major aesthetic theme is fragility. Many girls write about their desire to become ‘fragile’ or ‘delicate.’ Instead of emulating the narco-erotic bad-girl persona Moss exuded, the new thin worshipers prefer the frillier, wispy, bird-girl aesthetic; today, it’s about dainty rather than dangerous. The epigram for a popular thinspo blog reads: ‘light as a feather, floating away.’

While I think these girls are ridiculous and need help… I love Kate Moss. And not because she’s thin.
