To arrive where you are, to get from where you are not,
You must go by a way wherein there is no ecstasy.
In order to arrive at what you do not know
You must go by a way which is the way of ignorance.
In order to possess what you do not possess
You must go by the way of dispossession.
In order to arrive at what you are not
You must go through the way in which you are not.
And what you do not know is the only thing you know
And what you own is what you do not own
And where you are is where you are not.” —From “East Coker ; The Four Quartets” by T S . Eliot
Never fall in love with someone that lives 3,000 miles away.
fall in love with someone 14, 000 kilometers away instead.
hey so i don’t know if you knew this but apparently being uninterested in excessive drinking and partying makes you an overtly studious individual whose actual hobbies include “homework” and “studying”
- Dad: coincidence that big snake escaped from the Bronx zoo the same time Daniel Radcliffe is in NY? next there will be a billboard in times square telling us “her body will lie in the sewage system of New York forever.” Creepy.
My heart has become a bird
which searches in the sky.
Every part of me goes in different directions.
Is it really so
that the one I love is everywhere?” —Rumi (via oceanofmind)
These are off the top of my head/with the aid of my phone, so I’m probably missing heaps. Plus I know that it’s out of wack, exercising is much more enjoyable then cleaning. But regardless, stuff that I could imagine Forrest tripping up and grooving along to include
- Kanye West, Power
- The Phenomenal Handclap band, 15 to 20
- Crystal Castles, I’m Not In Love
- MGMT, Of Moons, Birds and Monsters (Holy Ghost! Remix)
- Simian Mobile Disco, Audacity of Huge
- Beni, Fringe Element
- Golden Slivers, True Romance (No 9 Blues)
- MSTRKRFT, Street Justice or Bounce
- Cut Copy, Going Nowhere (Sebastian Remix)
- Justin Timberlake, Rock Your Body (dealwithit.gif)
- Hot Chip, Forget My Name
- TZU, Computer Love
- Visti & Mayland, Yes Maam (Trentmoller Mix)
- Justice, Waters of Nazereth
- Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Heads Will Roll (James Iha remix)
- Mystery Jets, The Boy Who Ran Away (Riton Mix)
- The Rapture, Echos or Get Myself Into It
Angry cleaning goes down well to any old angsty stuff that you used to wail to at 16 or something, like
- SOAD, Chop Suey
- Slipknot, Heretic Anthem
- Killswitch Engage, My Curse
- Story of the Year, And The Hero Will Drown
- Gallows, In The Belly Of A Shark
- Three Days Grace, Riot
- Unwritten Law, FIGHT
- Funeral for a Friend, All The Rage
- The Rasmus, No Fear
- Bullet For My Valentine, Hand of Blood
(PS I’ll give you a txt tomorrow morning, I’ll have to suss out what time my new work shift is on for a Friday.)
loveandvitriol replied to your post:Today I had slept in and was running late to Uni,…
haha, weirdest story! i’ve made the shuffle-landing-on-an-embarrassing-song mistake so many times i now have criteria for selecting tracks to go on my ipod. ‘can this song be played in front of people cooler than me?’ ‘yes’ ‘sync motherfucker’
Yeah, normally I have proper playlists for things (Run Forrest, Run! for exercise, Do Your Cleaning While We’re Screaming for when I’m angry and cleaning up my room etc) with one that is simply called ‘Shit That Is Socially Acceptable’
but as I’m sure you understand, by this point my brains were about to be plastered across my dashboard in relief from the headquake so selecting ‘Shuffle Songs’ seemed like the best option
Today I had slept in and was running late to Uni, and on top of that, I hadn’t finished off my assignment. I decided to drive. Bad idea.
It took me 40 minutes up the main road while normally the trip itself would’ve only taken that amount of time- the traffic was in shambles for midday. I finally reached the highway, only to be stuck in the middle of bumper to bumper traffic, right next to a wanker delivering what could only be described as ‘doof doof waaa waaa’ to everyone stuck within a 3 kilometre radius.
Now, I can handle most kinds of genres, but when something is so loud to the point my car seat is shaking to ‘shikka shikka doof doof’ then immediate action needs to be undertaken. I took out Leeroy Jenkins, the top motherfucker of all my iPod’s with nearly 5K of music on him, went straight to shuffle and BAM LO AND BEHOLD
Leeroy Jenkins started spurting out Taylor Swift through the speakers. Mildly embarrassing. Leeroy what are you doing? Press next. Foals’ Cassius starts being busted out through my windows in an attempt to drown out the steadily climbing bass. I thought that Yannis’ voice just couldn’t take it and was about to admit defeat, when another car crawled up alongside us, playing the exact same song as my car, incredibly loudly
It was like Guitar Hero but with Foals vs Unknown Mixtape #43. Eventually the traffic petered away and the git zoomed off in an attempt to break the speed of sound, ‘tssh tssh doof doof,’ leaving me giving a guy in his mid-twenties a salute for overall Foals success
and then I realised he was my tutor for class later on that day. As if that wasn’t awkward enough, I’ve only now realised that it was his class I skipped today to finish off my assignment.
