who shall i blame for this sweet & heavy trouble? for every stupid struggle? i don’t know. i could buy you a drink. i could tell you all about it. i could tell you why i doubt it, and why i still believe it, and why i need it.
“I hated men because they didn’t stay around and love me like a father: I could prick holes in them & show they were no father-material. I made them propose and then showed them they hadn’t a chance. I hated men because they didn’t have to suffer like a woman did. They could die or go to Spain. They could have fun while a woman had birth pangs. They could gamble while a woman skimped on the butter on the bread. Men, nasty lousy men.”—Sylvia Plath (via longhardroadoutofhell)
Gayngs are a supergroup consisting of Justin Vernon, POS, Michael Lewis, and members of Megafaun, Solid Gold, Leisure Birds, and more. They have this great 80s-synth rock sound mixed with Vernon’s dreamy vocals and just generally sick beats. This also may or may not be a plug to try and get someone to see them in Brooklyn with me on Monday.
did you write a riddle that you knew they would fail? did you make them tremble so they would tell the tale? did you push us when we fell?
if my mother cries when i tell her what i have discovered then i hope she remembers she taught me to follow my heart and if you bully her like you’ve done me with fear of damnation then i hope she can see you for what you are
“Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no whenever you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.”—Eve Ensler (via letsgetfizzical)
