David Lynch

One of my heroes.  His Inside the Actor's Studio interview has all but disappeared.  He talked about things that thrilled him.

I'd make the spire wrought-iron and put a porcelain bath tub up top, with the rear feet dangling behind it.  Mhmm.

Better Than Free

When copies are free, you need to sell things which can not be copied.

Better Than Free - Kevin Kelly, via mamamusings' delicious.


I still (still!) need to get this.

Cornelius Playing with Chumby

Cornelius Playing with Chumby via Joi
The problem with making sensible decisions is that so is everyone else.  
Why do we strive for excellence when mediocrity is required?  
Don't try to please the client.  
Have you noticed how the cleverest people at school are not those who make it in life?  
If you can't solve a problem it's because you're playing by the rules.  
You don't have to be creative to be creative.  
You don't have to be able to write to be able to write.  
Don't seek praise, seek criticism.  
Sometimes it's good to be fired.  
There is no right point of view.  
It's right to be wrong.
The wisdom of Paul Arden via Momus.

Intelligent Design

Must've been intelligently-designed.

Garfield Minus Garfield

Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life?

I would buy records from a notional record label that released no records at all but produced beautiful sleeves, posters and stickers from bands and performers who didn't actually exist.

Omodaka via Warren Ellis... breakdown at :30
the heaviness of the drink weighs down on me and i'm suddenly conscious of the intrusion of the earbuds, though i must press on...

Evocative of Jeff Noon's Needle in the Groove. Requires bass.

Edit: I'd love to see Warren treat Noon's works for either film or graphic novels.

For some reason, this reminds me of college, of Tina, of that charcoal drawing turned into some crazy wall mural.

It's about making a better person of self.  Income, power, and titles have nothing to do with that.
Dee Hock, founder/CEO of Visa, via David Weiss

An escape.  This is now a necessary part of the dream.  A small place of my own.
There are projects for the dead and projects for the living, though I must confess sometimes I get confused by that distinction.
I have no reason to lie about this.  I might actually be lying about this.
Interestingly, the volume of the erections correlated with the strength of activation in a part of the brain called the pars opercularis, which is known to display mirror neuron activity. Even more intriguing, the brain activation, say the researchers, precedes the penile response.

I guess I lost

Because I'm still mad at you.
