the resistance to WE / the non-importance of a submission to WE / the importance of a resistance to WE

Posted: July 28th, 2012 | No Comments »

things rolling around in my chest cavity: ross’s resistance to “we,” my blind interest in “we,” theory vs. practice, and the utter importance of maintaining an independent self.

SELF, STAY STRONG INDEPENDENT.
SELF, BE LIKE A WATER REED.
SELF, WATER REEDS DO NOT MERGE WITH WATER, THOUGH LOVE WATER A LOT.
SELF, BE A WATER REED.
SELF, ALSO DEFINITELY CONTINUE MEDITATING.

sister from an another planet

this is me and our former intern, rosa, who people often think is my little sister. she’s much taller, and has more east coast blood, and a chill purity, but sometimes when she wears her glasses, i can see it.

me and rosa

bigness and messiness and problematicness

Posted: July 22nd, 2012 | No Comments »

from joel lovell’s article about kenneth lonergan’s film “margaret”:

There’s something in the very conception of “Margaret,” in the themes it most ambitiously pursues, that defies perfection. If “You Can Count On Me” was a sublimely wrought depiction of a fragile dynamic between two siblings, “Margaret” is that writ large — played out not in a single family or a small town, but among ever-widening and interconnected circles of lives, their private dramas constantly thrumming and colliding. Yes, it’s a big, messy, problematic film. And it’s one that, with a precision and insight and empathy and large-heartedness you almost never find in movies anymore, captures the bigness and messiness and problematicness of life, and does it in a profound and lingering way.

HAND COMPUTER WARNING
we had this dj camp for kids, and the finale was tonight, the kids dj’d, mostly top 40, all top 40, including katy perry, adele, rihanna, and selena gomez’s “i love you like a love song,” and we all danced to make it like a party, and i almost cried like 18 times because it’s such a hodge podge of kids, 12 and under, there was one really round little boy, and a set of triplets, and this tween girl dancing and singing along to all the songs, with long braids in her hair, and all of them SORT OF shy and awkward but also committted and totally feeling it, and you’re like oh jeez kids you are killing me, you are KILLING ME, and we’re all dancing, too, which feels like pure freedom, and that love song sounds revelatory, like the truest words, like yes I DO love you like a love song, and this 8-year-old is dancing her heart out to katy perry’s “fireworks” and i’m like HOLY SHIT MAYBE POP MUSIC IS KIND OF SIMPLE GENIUS and maybe it’s for kids actually and it’s speaking to them and sometimes empowering them, all these chilluns with their arms in the air singing about letting your colors fly or whatever the line is. incredible. and how come dancing is like a miracle cure for the blues? it really is. and what would it be like to have a best friend live here in the same town with me. nonsequitur but what if.
