comfort is a trap

Our minds and bodies were designed for a scrappy life of hardship,
not for a life of excess, comfort and ease.

ticket stubs

3am, I wake
wondering where my old concert ticket stubs are

$15. The Grateful Dead at Radio City?

unsurprisingly I'm missing many tickets for
shows I recall and
concurrently cannot remember most of the 
shows for which I do have tickets

furniture

Lest it seem there isn't any furniture in the house,
there is some...
I realise not everyone wants to sit on the floor.

Andrea Zittel

Andrea Zittel's work is well worth exploring.

Zittel began creating Six Month Uniforms in 1991 as a response to the social dictate to wear an entirely different change of clothes every day. By wearing a single uniform for six months, she no only eliminated the stress of choosing a daily outfit , but also generated an alternative to the mandate of  perpetual variety mandated consumer culture. More then seventy variations of the A-Z Personal Uniform now exist. The first A-Z Six Month Personal Uniforms were cut and sewn.  They ranged from basic wool dresses to silk adorned tulle and wool petticoats.  For her job in an art gallery and the working the studio, the artist needed an attractive yet flexible uniform (1992); for her work maintaining a chicken coop and other more strenuous daily activites, the uniform design added pants (1993).

Golden Eternity

The world you see is just a movie in your mind.
Rocks dont see it.
Bless and sit down.
Forgive and forget.
Practice kindness all day to everybody
and you will realize you’re already
in heaven now.
That’s the story.
That’s the message.
Nobody understands it,
nobody listens, they’re
all running around like chickens with heads cut
off. I will try to teach it but it will
be in vain, s’why I’ll
end up in a shack
praying and being
cool and singing
by my woodstove
making pancakes.

Fight Club

one of my favourite films

“You are not your job, you're not how much money you have in the bank. You are not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You are not your fucking khakis. You are all singing, all dancing crap of the world.”  -  Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

social life of genes

 “Your experiences today will influence the molecular composition of your body for the next two to three months,” he tells his audience, “or, perhaps, for the rest of your life. Plan your day accordingly.”

thoughts

I'm enjoying blogging.
I feel like Oprah, well, minus the fame and fortune.
Full editorial control plus all the self absorption I can muster.
