Can a creative person
have no trauma in his past?
Does head trauma count?
Or a toxic river?
I learned to swim in sludge.

What doesn't kill you
makes you stranger
will try again later.

Just finished season 5, episode 5, The Post Modern Prometheus and I think this is one of my favorite Mulder and Scully moments so far. The last scene, when he pulls her up by the hand to dance to Cher’s ‘Walking in Memphis’.

I want to believe.

My personal view is that YouTube’s strategy should be to foster great content, not cater to advertising executives. But I recognize that this strategy accomplishes both goals at once, so it’s not like I think it’s a bad strategy. I think YouTube could spend a little more time being cool before very intentionally and publicly going mainstream…but I’m a YouTube Hipster…what can I say.
 
If I’m angry about anything, it’s how shortsighted the advertising industry has been…making YouTube jump through a thousand hoops in order to get them to buy cheap ads when, really, YouTube has all the power. If ad agencies would like to stop reaching anyone under the age of 30…they’re welcome to keep marginalizing the most culturally important medium of the 21st century. Eventually they’d get fired and the problem would solve itself.

Sometimes it’s remarkably easy to predict what you’re not in the mood for. Like not even two complete sentences.

A member of veterinary staff at the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme centre conducts medical examinations on a 14-year-old male orangutan found with air gun metal pellets embedded in his body in Sibolangit district in northern Sumatra island. The orangutan was rescued by Indonesia’s ministry of forestry personnel and Orangutan Information Centre in nearby Langkat district in a small patch of a forest and agricultural plantation.

While I’m angered that someone thought it might be cool to shoot at this magnificent creature; and I’m truly impressed with the loving and careful work this vet is doing; and I’m struck by the buddha-like expression on this guy’s face; I nonetheless hear the following monologue happening:SO THEN? AS MY CAB ROLLED UP? I TURNED—EVER SO DEMURELY—AND I SAID TO THE BELLHOP, “KEEP THE CHANGE HONEY AND CALL ME SOMETIME.” CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I DON’T KNOW WHAT COMES OVER ME SOMETIMES. I MEAN WHO EVEN USES CHANGE TO MAKE A CALL? SO STUPID. BUT SO CUTE. JUST LIKE HE WAS.

Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.

Cyril Connolly

So important in the age of social media.
