I like “A Little Lost” because it’s all about kissing. I love kissing. If I could kiss all day, I would. I can’t stop thinking about kissing. I like kissing more than sex because there’s no end to it. You can kiss forever. You can kiss yourself into oblivion. You can kiss all over the body. You can kiss yourself to sleep. And when you wake up, you can’t stop thinking about kissing. Dammit, I can’t get anything done because I’m so busy thinking about kissing. Kissing is madness! But it’s absolute paradise, if you can find a good kisser.
Arthur’s music is all over the place, but most of it seems to be about embracing darkness (loneliness) and ambiguity (confusion) with the biggest bear hug in the world. Catharsis! He didn’t give a shit about fads or fashion even as he was influenced by popular music, club music, and all that shitty art music at the Kitchen. He kind of cobbled it all together to create his own diverse musical language, He was funny as shit (a wordsmith, a master of the innuendo), but also dead serious (and blunt) about the deepness of his feelings, unafraid to express affection in his songs, without pandering or cliche. Arthur was real as shit. You can’t fake realness."
these walls are paper thin and everyone hears every little sound. everyone’s a voyeurist, they’re watching me watch them watch me right now.
forgot about how much I loved this song until it played every day this week at work, and today it made me emotional and I hid in the bathroom and felt things until I heard a rush of teenagers come in asking for milkshakes
I think I’m in love with Jenny.
TODAY the nipple (lol) on my Camelbak ripped and THEN I had to buy a whole new Camelbak because they discontinued the nipple (lol) I’d had but then the bottle’s actually really cool and prettier than the free one I had and THEN I got hired permanently at my chill + fun job and THEN I accidentally spent $16 for lunch at the Whole Foods salad bar because my salad was so out of control, but now I’m just gonna finish eating that stuff FOR DINNER, DON’T EVEN WORRY.

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t pick up Dan Chiasson’s book because of the pretty cover design, but I’m not at all regretting it
