Take Me Away - Bleachers ft. Grimes



“When god became lonely
he created man,
Or was it
When man became lonely
he created god.”

— Melanie Exler strengthenizer (via strengthenizer)

“I guess what it all comes down to is how much are you willing to risk with this one finite lifetime for the love that you secretly desire.”

— Michael Xavier (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)

“War is not declared any more,
but simply continued. The terrible
is an everyday thing.”

— Ingeborg Bachmann, from “Every Day” (translated by Christopher Middleton) in A Book of Women Poets from Antiquity to Now (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)


Here is the only thing that gets me excited about the World Cup! GENDERFUCKING!! I wrote profile on Jayiah Saelua, the first transgender player to compete in a World Cup qualifier. Even though she would prefer that you called her something else:

Fa’afafine, which translates to “in the manner of a woman,” is American Samoa’s recognized and embraced third gender. Fa’afafine are Polynesians who are born biologically male but dress and live essentially like women. They take male lovers, wear makeup, and wrap their bodies in dresses, but they do not consider themselves women.

“In my culture, we believe there are two spirits inside every person,” Saelua says, “one masculine and one feminine. A fa’afafine is more in touch with the feminine spirit, but we still have a male spirit inside us.” According to Saelua, the fa’afafine of American Samoa aren’t trans, cross-dressers, or drag queens—they’re not even queer. “There’s no such thing as gay on the island,” Saelua says.





Seems like IKEA are really shaking things up this year. In addition to the previously announced TV set, they’re also going to release a digital camera made of cardboard called Knäppa (“Snap”). It’ll hold 40 photographs at a time and plugs directly into your USB port. While it’s not the prettiest camera the world has ever seen, I do love the idea of a screen-less digital camera that brings people back to the wait-and-see days of film.


The Samples - Could It Be Another Change

我们每一个人都有失恋的时候。而每一次我失恋呢, 我就会去跑步。 因为跑步能把你身体内的水分蒸发掉,而让我不那么容易地流泪。

We‘re all unlucky in love sometimes. When I am, I go jogging. The body loses water when you jog… so you have none left for tears.

“You can’t be wise and in love at the same time.”

— Bob Dylan, No Direction Home (2005)
Do you stand under the rain to feel the raindrops or are those tears?
