It is 2014. Justin Bieber doesn’t exist. “Baby” was never a thing. Nobody suddenly realized that Bieber sounds totally hot in the song “Boyfriend.” The birds no longer sing. Skies are permanently cloudy. People can no longer eat ice cream. The aliens came and they turned out to be chill but The Walking Dead turned out to be real. Every bar cards and the drinking age is now 30. Now the only cute-boy musician band, One Direction is completely stressed so they change their name to Directionless. The crows caw, but if you listen closely, you can hear that that they’re actually saying “Bieber, Bieber” because they recognize what humans cannot - that there is someone missing from the world who could have made a nation of beliebers out of nothing at all. 


oh my god

oh my god


I walk by you every day

I hope our friendship starts with shy smiles and progresses with waves and and well-wishes for the day, and that you imagine what my name is and where I am going

and I hope that, when I no longer walk by you, you stare at the long-legged women and smile at the memory of me dragging my feet on the sidewalk as I turn to look at you and wonder if you get tired


this is cute but it’s also morbid because he is surrounded by what could have been fellow birdies

"I feel outnumbered and outorganized by a prevailing Western consensus that has come to regard the Third World as an atrocious nuisance, a culturally and politically inferior place. Whereas we write and speak as members of a small minority of marginal voices, our journalistic and academic critics belong to a wealthy system of interlocking informational and academic resources with newspapers, television networks, journals of option, and institutes at its disposal. Most of them have now taken up a strident chorus of rightward-tending damnation, in which they separate what is non-white, non-Western, and non-Judeo-Christian from the acceptable and designated Western ethos, then herd it all together under various demeaning rubrics such as terrorist, marginal second-race, or unimportant. To attack what is contained in these categories is to defend the Western spirit."  - Edward Said, “Culture and Imperialism”

Regina Spektor | Fidelity
Begin to Hope (2006)

this song makes me fall into happy nostalgia



floatingidentity:

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life


I have a habit of always accidentally staring down the guards at bowery hotel while looking for famous people and one of the doormen just said, “good morning!” with a big smile like we’re best friends and i don’t know whether to be happy or embarassed

I’m grateful for literature that has allowed me to rethink the way I see the world and I am grateful for traveling which has allowed me to recreate myself and test myself in new ways.
