“If only I could visit you as a foreigner goes into a new country, learn the language of you, wander past all borders into every private and secret place, I would stay forever. I would become a citizen of you.”—Lisa Kleypas, A Wallflower Christmas (via larmoyante)
“Potter has done too much for me for me to ever want to shit all over it. I’m never going to say: ‘Don’t ask me questions about that’. I remember reading an interview with Robert Smith from The Cure. Somebody said to him: ‘Why do you still wear all that makeup, don’t you feel a bit past it?’ And he said: ‘There are still 14-year-olds coming to see The Cure for the first time, dressed like that. I’d never want to make them feel silly.’ It’s a similar thing with Potter. People are still discovering those books and films. It would be awful for them to find out the people involved had turned their backs on it. Though sometimes, people do come up and say ‘I loved you in The Woman in Black,’ which is really sweet. That’s them knowing that it matters to me that I’ve done other stuff.”—Daniel Radcliffe for London Magazine (x)
anindependentguinevere and i chose ‘listen' for our weekly theme. i have to imagine there are lots of perspectives on and meanings to this word for us all. but without a doubt, for sure, for me this week, it means listen to what my heart and the still small voice are telling me about all of this. all that’s going on in my life, all that i’m dedicated to, all that i make space for, all that’s happening to my friends and loved ones, my own relationships and with whom. listen to what it all means.
“Don’t be afraid to be confused. Try to remain permanently confused. Anything is possible. Stay open, forever, so open it hurts, and then open up some more, until the day you die, world without end, amen.”—George Saunders (via purplebuddhaproject)
“[Just as] there are certain species of plants and trees who seeds sprout only after a fire … our buddha-nature may be like a seed that grows in the ashes of our burned-over forest of illusions.”—Marian Mountain (via purplebuddhaproject)
like a thousand years ago (3 months?), forthegoodtimesss tagged me to post a shuffle list of my music - the first 20 songs (w/o skipping) and here, finally, it is. also happens to be the music i’m listening to right now…
This is a vinyl rip of the first pressing of Led Zeppelin II which ran about 200,000 copies, these are sometimes also called the Robert Ludwig mixes. The reason of what makes these mixes special is that the original copies of LZII were EQ’d in a way that, at the time, would skip on a lot of turntables. They then had to remove some of the bass and re-press the album.
This is Led Zeppelin II the way it was meant to be heard.
