i bought an ugly lamp
i’m in my new apartment and i’m so excited. it’s insane how overnight, i feel more settled and calm, there isn’t this underlying sense of panic anymore. except, i’ve never really been one to decorate and yesterday after the move, i realized i needed a lamp. it was 8:30 and i was starving. never try to make an important decision when you’re hungry. i called...

Dear Coke Talk: On fun sized advice. →
Do you make any money from blogging? Not a fucking nickel. What is the difference between “fucking” and “making love?” Hallmark. How do you deal with pretentious assholes? Relentless mind fucking followed by total disregard. What do you think of Dr. Phil? I don’t think of him. Ever.
i went to the beach today. the sky looked like the skin of a python in blue and white. there were four police cars with their lights on and spinning and no less than two long beach fire department ambulances that were also on full tilt. choppers batted through the air, and there were at least 2 police boats in the water. i wondered briefly what would bring this sleepy little beach town into...

Chinese Vow To Act On Artificially Low Currency :... →

U.S. officials in both Democratic and Republican administrations have criticized the practice for a few reasons, one being that it...

caraobrien: From the NYT, excerpt: JERUSALEM — Under intense international pressure after its commandos killed nine activists aboard an aid flotilla trying to breach its blockade of Gaza last month, Israel on Thursday announced what it called “adjustments” in its policy, promising to ease the entry of civilian goods by land while maintaining its naval blockade.

Ira Glass on Being Wrong →
spaceships: I had this experience a couple of years ago where I got to sit in on the editorial meeting at the Onion. Every Monday they have to come up with like 17 or 18 headlines, and to do that, they generate 600 headlines per week. I feel like that’s why it’s good: because they are willing to be wrong 583 times to be right 17. It kind of gives you hope. If you do creative work, there’s...

ugh! and i’m so fucking tired.
It was all dust and a deck of cards, scattered. Old business cards from people I’d forgotten or didn’t care to remember. An old bus ticket from when I was constantly leaving, going out of town trying to affect change. Something I could do to feel involved, but was no longer necessary, now that it had been realized. Something else had to happen now. Pennies strewn about by the window,...

just watched that movie and i really liked it. sort of related to the characters sense of detachment. i’ve been living like that for years now. probably like seven.
