    The Horror Renaissance

    I wasn't that sold on Midsommar as a horror movie so much as the most faithful on-screen depiction I've encountered of the experience of taking a nice amount of acid/shrooms, and then far too much ketamine, at a summer music festival.

    If you could do it all again

    I just can't imagine what kept me in some of these jobs/places over the years, except my old friend melancholy.

    If you could do it all again

    I lament most of the things I've ever not done (that old cliche), but I've been thinking more about my decisions (which weren't really decisions) post university. Principally not moving to London when all my friends lived there because of my weird resentment of London (4 pounds for a pint?!)...

    Witness the Fitness

    What sort of shape are you in Danny? Are we talking rippling adonis or crippling arthritis?

    If you could do it all again

    Booze is interesting for melancholy cos (in my experience) it starts by removing it completely but if you become melancholy while pissed its 20x more powerful.

    Witness the Fitness

    I'd love to be stripped to the waist looking like that, standing in the open air, a compact virile animal.

    If you could do it all again

    I actually have done this, somewhat consciously in the past — not gone to a party or whatever cos I'm scared, and been aware that as compensation I'd be able to writhe in exquisite misery over me not going...

    If you could do it all again

    Oh, I know that. It's a sort of compensation for being frightened of acting. You enjoy painfully musing on the life unlived.

    If you could do it all again

    Exquisite pain. Once or twice I've been genuinely happy, with no shadow falling across me, and that's felt odd, makes me unnerved, anxious to regain some perspective by getting depressed about something.

    If you could do it all again

    This is good stuff. I've been cultivating a melancholy attitude to life since I was about 13.

    If you could do it all again

    I guess you've got to play the hand you're holding and not worry about how you ended up with something much shitter than you could have had.

    I did that for a while, think I managed about two months? I don't know about you but I felt my reading muscles getting stronger each week.

    KAN YAY OR KAN NAY? (The Kanye West Thread)

    I can see Kanye welcoming another four years of Trump just so he can say that he won him the election.

    If you could do it all again

    Times like this when you envy Trump, thinking everything he's ever done is genius.

    If you could do it all again

    Well I hate it.

    I believe it was in the Pollan psychedelics book that I read that the ruminating mind...

    If you could do it all again

    "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” As it happens, I just read this in Stanislaus Joyce's "My Brother's Keeper": "I have seen a dozen or so cuttings from Cork daily papers containing flattering notices of Mr. Joyce's performances in various comic parts. Out of...

    KAN YAY OR KAN NAY? (The Kanye West Thread)

    Is there any way he could be worse than Trump?

    If you could do it all again

    What would you do differently? Lately I've been thinking that I've essentially been making huge mistakes both personally and professionally since circa 2003. (Often the mistake has been not to make a mistake by actually doing something. I've sat on the pot, not shitting.)

    2pac understood, unlike most so-called "poets" these days, that poetry SHOULD RHYME.
