We dreamed of starships and damsels in distress and grew into our unfortunate bodies, forgetting. We saw the cracks that we use to step over, so that we wouldn’t injure our mother’s spines, and we laughed at our former selves, mocking our own naiveté. We crushed ourselves under the weight of education and choked ourselves on neckties. We stopped reading picture books and started reading self-help books, like we needed someone who was just as fucked up as us to tell us precisely in which ways we were fucked up. We went through a quarter-life crisis where we realized what a drastic mistake growing up seemed to be. We were not done living but being alive seemed so yesterday, all there was was the manipulation of our bodies in order to appear stimulated by the world around us. There are no bright colors. We are Grey.
Sometimes I stay up til 6 in the morning. Sometimes I do this because I’m crying. Sometimes I do that because I’m really fucking sad. Sometimes I’m really fucking sad for absolutely no discernible reason and that makes me even sadder and so it turns into Hurricane Katrina on my shitty face and I lose myself into another sip of my watered down whiskey and coke that has been next to my bed for the past 2 hours. I do this because it seems like there is nothing better to do. I guess I’m just bored with my absolutely average life. If you took the greatest life of all time, then the shittiest, and found the mean of these two lives, I would God’s honest be in the dead center.
My new pedal! The Eterna by Mr. Black! Can’t wait to play this! #reverb #pedal #guitar
Out on the lake for my birthday. Couldn’t ask for anything better than spending time with @erinbrands on a beautiful day.
Wimbledon finally belongs back to Britain! Great finish to a great match! #wimbledon2013
This has been my week. Uneventful. But at least the cat likes me. @erinbrands #daria #shameless #dollhouse #wilfred
It’s a screwdriver. And it’s sonic. Harmless really, just exceptionally good at opening doors. #thedoctor #dw #sonicscrewdriver
