i go through pairs of headphones more frequently than tanks of gasoline

last night the lesbian ghost who haunts my shower came back. she is only there when i take a shower at two in the morning. she tilts her head and stares. she is maybe more curious than a lesbian. i offered to play scrabble with her but she just kept watching me.

i think everyone should read life as a crossword puzzle by noah falck. it is layered, it is enigmatic, it is linguistically and conceptually beautiful. there are little ohios inside. you can get a copy via a link in the margin of his blog.

also recently enjoyed mlkng sckls by justin sirois. it is inventive, it is original, it is beautiful the way a sunsetting desert is beautiful. there is snowing coconut, there are solar systems in the backyard, there is survival, there is uncooking. the latter is among my favourite unhappenings since war in reverse.

i am still excited about light boxes. i have been telling people who do not even read to read light boxes. people on social networking websites. people in supermarket aisles who are not walt whitman. the complete strangers who populate my sleep and live inside giant tulips with tentacles. homeless toothless men who play purple haze on banjos. i feel compelled to paint kites on myself and remind people of what to remember.

generally i think of art as highly private and most potent in isolation. good art is too mystical to involve other people. at least in the moment of processing it. maybe that is why people invented books and mixtapes and headphones. if someone walks in on you experiencing good art it should feel as though you had been masturbating. the potency is in isolation. and yet i think good art necessitates resurfacing, telling other people about it. maybe because it feels selfish and withholding to be alone in the experience. even that does not seem an accurate enough reason. what drives the impulse to share experience?

  1. I dug MLKNG SCKLS, too. Thanks for the d plug, and for linking to my blog. I linked to yours. :)

  2. i'm sad that you choose to avoid socially networking with me

  3. hey :) nice blog. Intriguing! You have a follower.

    I also go through headphones and wish I had a lesbian, ghost or otherwise, that appeared in my shower at 2 am.

  4. Hi, Audri. Great thoughts on art...

  5. shane, you are welcome. i recently decided after plotting some graphs and pie charts that light boxes is my favourite book in maybe years. thank you for giving it breath.

    jason, certainly. and yes, justin sirois and dehydrated curry are awesome. thank you for the mutual linkage and once again for redivider, into which i am pressed deeply. glad to share a tunnel between our names.

    ryan, i was not aware that i had chosen this. i am sorry you feel this way. i will consider joining twitter. i would be happy to be your groupie/one of hundreds in your lady harem.

    jessica, thank you. i enjoy your blog also. yes, i never spend much money on headphones because i kill them quickly and regardless of price they die at the same rate. it is tragic for all involved parties.

    i will assemble the biggest shower in the history of ever and everyone in the world will get in together.

    eric, i am sure my thoughts on art have been thought by someone else before but thank you anyway for reading them. and hello.

  6. i wish for us to be facebook friends
