"There is a terrible emptiness in me, an indifference that hurts."
Albert Camus (via feuille-d-automne)
"It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any."
"if you don’t want me to take care of you, can you please take better care of yourself."
She thinks her bruises are attractive but they only are to me
Who else could find pain as excruciatingly appealing?
She made me a cannibal.
Her perfume filled the hollows in my bones
With every step I took, joint into socket,
I crushed the air and filled myself with her scent.
That was five days ago. And still no sign of her.
Everything is half remembered, seen through a haze
Collected and absorbed by the rain
I taste her name on my lips and my tongue and burn myself with heat of her soul
Down my throat
I can’t take this anymore
I need to feel my fingers wrapped around her bones and hear her whisper how much she loves me and to never let go
I want to break her spine
And shape her, into a new creature
My bird, my pet, my sweet one
My love; a twisted thing
A man who asks permission, is no man of mine.
He takes and takes and takes
His eyes swallow cities whole
And when he breathes it’s like God is calling me
Calling me back home
ALRIGHT LISTEN UP!
SERIOUS BUSINESS RIGHT HERE!
CISPA just passed and is going to destroy everything!

It’s time to get pissed. The U.S. law that would turn Google, Facebook, and Twitter into legally immune government spies just passed the House.
This bill affects everyone — not just U.S. citizens. Anyone with a Facebook account could now have their data shipped directly to the U.S. government. That’s why Internet users overwhelmingly oppose this bill. Over 1.5 million people signed petitions against it. But Congress didn’t listen.
Does this remind you of something? Yep, this is the exact position we were in with SOPA last year. Then the Internet rose up and we made history with the SOPA strike.
This spring, we’re going to organize the largest online privacy protest in history to make sure that CISPA goes the same route as SOPA and doesn’t become the law that breaks the 4th Amendment. Are you in?
CISPA threatens our most basic rights. Privacy is important not just for our security but for our rights to freedom of expression. The giant tech companies that stood with Internet users against SOPA are not going to help us this time (but some of the large sites like Mozilla, Imgur, and Reddit are all against CISPA and we love them).
Share this flyer, and tell everyone you know to sign up to join the protest!
The Private asked for my address
But I couldn’t write to him. Every time I sat behind a desk, an overwhelming feeling of anxiety overtook me.
I struggled for breath. My thoughts escaped me.
So the letters poured in, and I read them all by my window.
So much light through that small glass frame.
“I could bleed in this dry desert, and the earth would suck my blood as though it were a vampire.
“Sometimes I think I hear bells, or chimes, or maybe it’s music, leading me further into this madness. Sometimes I hear singing, and I can’t stop crying, Nadine. I can’t stop crying.
“I could kiss you, from miles away, and maybe you would feel my phantom lips on your brow.”
If I felt anything at all, it might be regret.
But people like me, we always survive the wars.
We don’t believe in anything, and we have nothing left.
Nothing to write about. Just a lonely body, occupying some space for while.
There is no hostility in my inconsiderate actions. I just never learned to care.
I hope this letter reaches you, in good health.
T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land
