“But do you know this idea of the imaginary homeland? Once you set out from shore on your little boat, once you embark, you’ll never truly be at home again. What you’ve left behind exists only in your memory, and your ideal place becomes some strange imaginary concoction of all you’ve left behind at every stop.” ― Claire Messud, The Woman Upstairs

Ichabod Crane vs. The 21st Century

it is ridiculous how well he pulls this off, given that it’s the easiest punch line for the show to go for

"It’s a long time, it’s a long of work, you’re in this crucible, it becomes this juggernaut… and we become like, hugely famous people, and we all change a little bit, go a little crazy, think that we’re special, and then we come back down to earth and we know that we’re not…
"And it’s just all these things that happen. We see the worst of each other. Fame brings out the worst in people, as does success, in a weird way. Until it doesn’t, until you learn how to deal with it, until you learn what it’s all about. And I think now we do. And now that we all do, we just really appreciate one another for having gone through that experience. And not only that, but I appreciate her talent much more than I ever did."

a new zine called shitty horoscopes that i’ll be premiering this year at the Toronto Queer Zine Fair, among other things! hopefully i’ll make volumes available for online purchase soon. credit where credit is due: this was inspired by the huge number of made-up horoscopes floating around tumblr lately, and angry-poems.

yup, the Libra one is pretty accurate

I adore this

"Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt – marvelous error!–
that I had a beehive
here inside my heart.
And the golden bees
were making white combs
and sweet honey
from my old failures."

Antonio Machado (via itsquoted)

nerdshares:

"I know that people look at me and wonder why I have not succumbed to the progress of technology. Why have I not frozen or filled in the lines of my forehead. Why I have not clipped the bits of surplus skin on my eyelids. I am not sure, but probably because I am afraid of freezing time, of not recognizing myself in the mirror, the image I have been so friendly with. Losing the complicity with myself is something I would not like to happen, the wink in the bathroom mirror as I pass it in the middle of the night, the straight-on look that I recognize. My image is who I am and even if I don’t always love it, I am intrigued by it and I find the changes interesting.”

-Diane von Furstenberg, The Woman I Wanted to Be.

"The story of Cassandra, the woman who told the truth but was not believed, is not nearly as embedded in our culture as that of the Boy Who Cried Wolf—that is, the boy who was believed the first few times he told the same lie. Perhaps it should be."

In her cover essay on silencing women in the October 2014 issue of Harper’s, Rebecca Solnit once again proves that she is one of our era’s greatest essayist – further evidence here and here. (via explore-blog)
