this struck me

So, this year is hardly the productive/life is awesome/getting things done fest that I hoped it would be. 12 days in and I’ve already been wasted a few times and get the feeling that all progress has halted. And for once, I don’t think it’s down to Mercury Retro.

While I was doing my daily RSS catch up on my favouritest tumblrs (I love tumblogs – they occupy almost the same head space as graphic novels)  I found this, and as I was feeling pretty emo at the time I figured I’d post it here.

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place

I found it here.
I’m gonna get some sleep. Night.

you're painting floors while your pals are renaming the stars..

I’m hoping that today is going to be a better day than yesterday. It already is, although I’m at work it’s a sunny crisp autumn morning I got a seat to myself the whole way to work on the bus, and (this is the part I wanted to talk about) I gained a whole new appreciation of Frame and Canvas.

You know when you’ve listened to a record hundreds and hundreds of times and you love it, and then one day you’re listening to it and suddenly you realise that THIS is the perfect listen. This is the exact way these songs are supposed to be heard, in the locale, with this frame of mind. I found a poignance in songs that had always managed to evade me in the past, and a new found love for favourites. I wanted to marry Frame and Canvas this morning. Autumn and harvest are (well, in my mind anyway) the emo (note mid 90s chicago based sense of the word) season anyway, less pining for the youthful exuberance of summers lost than creating a discourse from it.

Okay, I’m off, because 9am is too early to be considering discourse. And I have to finish my all time top zombies list for work.
