“She wasn't doing a thing that I could see, except standing there, leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe together.”

for the ears. for the morning. for the power. for the glory.

flume's 19. he's from sydney. flume isn't his real name.

'possums' is one of the best morning walk to the train station/evening walk away from work songs ever. it makes me so damn happy. and his 'anthem' remix is so flip

“Look...Reality is greater than the sum of its parts, also a damn sight holier. And the lives of such stuff as dreams are made of may be rounded with a sleep but they are not tied neatly with a red bow. Truth doesn't run on time like a commuter train, though time may run on truth. And the Scenes Gone By and the Scenes to Come flow blending together in the sea-green deep while Now spreads in circles on the surface. So don't sweat it. For focus simply move a few inches back or forward. And once more...look.”
-Ken Kesey, Sometimes A Great Notion

"You can make a mark across the night with the tip of an embered stick, and you can actually see it fixed in its finity. You can be absolutely certain of its treacherous impermanence. Hank knew . . . "

a great book. a truly overwhelmingly beautiful piece of writing. i've heard some people say that they find i hard to read, with the techniques he's used. but that's the beauty of it. you're getting these first-person perspectives from multiple people all at once and he creates this depth of character. and each scene in the book just has this added weight because of it. it's a beautiful thing. a truly beautiful thing.

and something for your ears

with his wonderfully sparce arrangements and use of loops to build layers in a track hayden calnin establishes this depth and emotion and its fucking lovely.

summer is such a bold song. i love it.

youth lagoon is the best thing that's happened to me today.

i was mad depressed earlier...

one of those days when it's sunny outside but the shadows just seem to follow you.
can't get the light.
can't feel the warmth.
can't get anything to go my way.

...but then i downloaded youth lagoon's 'the year of hibernation' and all was good.

i fucking love that music can do that.

all you have to do is listen.

this film clip is stunning too. tyler t williams has mad talent behind a camera.


and as an aside,

have you seen this trailer? beautiful. the song is by chad vangaalen, who until now i'd actually overlooked. he's amazing.
