Conor Oberst - Cape Canaveral 

Like the Freon cold out the hotel door
Or the white rocket fade over Cape Canaveral
You’ve been a daughter to me
Your buried shoe-box grief 
I felt your poltergeist love like savannah heat

"What makes earth feel like hell is our expectation that it should feel like heaven."

then I’m off to the Outer Banks to shoot a wedding. 

A little over two weeks to do it all, a little over two weeks til it’s over for the semester. Someone only let me pull a 18-19 hour semester only one more time because it’s actually the worst.

“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her.  She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.  
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly.  “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.” 
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”

this is why performance art is important


So every single person who told me ‘ignore them they’ll go away’ and ‘you can’t let them know they bothered you’ and ‘They’ll stop if they don’t see you react’ and all that bull shit, my entire school career, I want you to look good and hard at this.
I want you to think about what you said.
What you keep saying.
What you are telling your children.
You are making them powerless.

Utter perfection

I’d never ask you
Cause deep down I’m certain I know what you’d say…

This entire album is exactly what I’ve been needing to here at this point in my life romantically, etc.

Kids (Keep Up) by Childish Gambino

""Where is this going?" This is the question I ask and every time I do, I lose my breath. I hope to hear the words that my heart wants but at the same time, I’m not completely sure what those words are. These are the words that make my stomach turn from anticipation and anxiety, the words that slowly make my soul sweat ferociously from being too nervous. The answer to these four words can either light a flame in my soul or break the pieces I’ve band-aided together. These are the words that will either end the let downs I’m used to or start another period of broken hearted poetry I will write at three in the morning."
