Kimya Dawson - Tire Swing (Juno OST)

Tire Swing | Kimya Dawson

I took the polaroid down in my room

I’m pretty sure you have a new girlfriend

I had a dream that I had to drive to Madison
To deliver a painting for some silly reason
I took a wrong turn and ended up in Michigan
Paul Baribeau took me to a giant tire swing
He gave me a push and started singing
I sang along while I was swinging
The sound of our voices made us forget everything
That had ever hurt our feelings

the amount of attention and respect given to people in a pseudo position of power in these crazy interwebs that don’t even remotely deserve it or reciprocate never ceases to sicken or dismay me.

Yay. Because nothing says women’s rights & equality for all like excluding a specific subcategory in your shoutout. If irony was intended, it was lost in translation; the messengers can fuck off.

One of the saddest things is that the only thing a man can do for eight hours a day, day after day, is work. You can’t eat eight hours a day nor drink for eight hours a day nor make love for eight hours - all you can do for eight hours is work. Which is the reason why man makes himself and everyone else so miserable and unhappy.
— William Faulkner - The Art of Fiction No. 12 (an interview)

His soul stretched tight across the skies
That fade behind a city block,
Or trampled by insistent feet
At four and five and six o’clock;
And short square fingers stuffing pipes,
And evening newspapers, and eyes
Assured of certain certainties,
The conscience of a blackened street
Impatient to assume the world.

I am moved by fancies that are curled
Around these images, and cling:
The notion of some infinitely gentle
Infinitely suffering thing.

Wipe your hand across your mouth, and laugh;
The worlds revolve like ancient women
Gathering fuel in vacant lots.

— T.S. Eliot - Preludes

For I have known them all already, known them all:
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
I know the voices dying with a dying fall
Beneath the music from a farther room.
So how should I presume?
— T.S. Eliot - The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock (an excerpt)
