Singleness gives us light.
At immeasurable distance stands one single star at the zenith.
This star is the God and goal of humanity.
In this world one is Abraxas,
creater and destroyer of one's world.
today is bi visibility day. as such, bisexual people will be completely visible for the next 24 hours. this is a bad day to engage in bank heists, ghost impersonations, covert operations for vague yet menacing government agencies, and other common bisexual hobbies that rely upon our powers of invisibility.

So, I just did a book meme where one lists ten (or eleven) books that have ‘stayed with one’. Let’s do a movie meme. What are ten movies that stayed with you? I got this from #penns-woods on LJ.
1) The Prophecy Trilogy
2) Larence of Arabia
3) The Blues Brothers
4) Mystery of the Leaping Fish
5) The Boondock Saints
6) The Tin Drum
7) The Deerhunter
8) Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
11) Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune
7) Michael Collins
I will tag the same people I tagged in the book meme. #oldwickedsongs #thekneegrope #severedlies #drinkingcocoa-tpp #dixiebell #bored-qui #foxestacado #penns-woods #akemi42 #farfromuniquer #lauracuthbert #euphoniusmyth #buneesi #aprillikesthings #tigermind108 #triffidhunter
I’m sorry I’m so late, injusticeworth
If you want to know anything about these books (if they aren’t obvious) or why I chose them, just ask. If I say anything I will go on for days. That is why I postponed answering.
Ok, I finished and noticed I had left out a ‘trilogy’ which I think is super important, so there are 11. It is a much luckier number anyway. I should have liked to give a nod to Colin Wilson as well, and T. E. Lawrence, and In Watermelon Sugar, and let us not forget Fortunes in Formulas, which is from the 1930s and tells you how to make everything… Well, you see why this place is full of books. There is also the dentistry manual, or anything about music (Mann’s Doctor Faustus?) and I haven’t listed any actual philosophy, and what about Jung, and Markus Borg, and… Oh dear. TEN? HAHAHA.
In your status list 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take more than a few minutes and don’t think too hard. The books don’t need to be classic. Tag 10 friends including me so I can see your list.
1) The Bible (various authors)
2) The Wreckers of Pengarth (Michael Gibson)
3) Lost in the Cosmos ( Walker Percy)
4) My Name Is Asher Lev ( Chaim Potok)
5) What’s Bred in the Bone (Robertson Davies)
6) Between Silk and Cyanide (Leo Marks)
7) Panama (Thomas McGuane)
8) Gallipoli (John Masefield)
9) King Jesus (Robert Graves)
10) Been Down so Long It Looks like Up to Me (Richard Fariña)
11) Demian/Steppenwolf/The Glass Bead Game ( Hermann Hesse)
Tag friends. Well, I don’t usually do this, but it was so mic to be tagged. You’ve probably already done this. #oldwickedsongs #thekneegrope #severedlies #drinkingcocoa-tpp #dixiebell #bored-qui #foxestacado #penns-woods #akemi42 #farfromuniquer #lauracuthbert #euphoniusmyth #buneesi #aprillikesthings #tigermind108 #triffidhunter If I missed someone I know IRL I’m sorry. Also, I didn’t count.
So, I finally finished arranging the Mendelssohn lieder. This is what John enjoyed most of Sherlock’s canon violin playing, and I had a handful arranged for recorder and they were nice, lyrical, etc. So I have finally finished all 48 and feel very accomplished. I had to do a couple as duets. There was no way around it.
I have had what is almost certainly repetitive strain injury in my left index finger so I have not been able to actually play for weeks as it heals. I think it is almost ready. I can close it with only minimum pain.
So what happened this evening? I poured hot oil over my left ring finger and got second degree burns from the tip to the first knuckle. Omg it hurts so much. I iced it, used aloe vera, etc. But it still hurts.
I WANT TO PLAY MY VIOLIN!!!!!!!!!
At a deposition, Ferguson’s former police chief revealed that his staff did not keep records of incidents in which officers used force against citizens, so long as no one died; in other words, there was no way of telling how often incidents like Davis’ happened.
remember shit like this when they talk about how mike brown’s shooter had no disciplinary record
