im starting to writ pomes agn and i wrote a pome and i want someone 2 read it but i want to have someone read it who isn’t reading the samet higs i’ve beenr eading and someone who i havn’t been talking to so i kno whether it even makes sense outside of that conteext of my personal brand presenting the pome, right? then presumably, i would think that i would probably be able to maybe glean from their reaction the poblems w/pome so that I could make it better.
OTOH, I’m really busy right now and I desperately need to focus on my schoolwork. writing this incoherent journal very counter-rpdouctive.
also: to-do: re-evaluate viability of hip-hop career.
An extraordinary picture of a house in the middle of a newly built road in Wenling, Zhejiang province, China. An elderly couple refused to sign an agreement to allow their house to be demolished. They say that compensation offered is not enough to cover rebuilding costs. This and all the best news images from Thursday here: Photograph: China Daily/Reuters
Don’t be surprised if this image becomes iconic among U.S. opponents of eminent domain.
Indiana, we are merely passing through history. This, this IS history.
EVERYONE TAKE NOTE
in july, tao lin sent me ~15 lbs of things from his room. he included this little voice recorder that had some recordings on it. a few of the recordings were of him reading his mom’s dreams that she had written out for him. i transcribed one of them:
It is in the night and I went to the library. I parked our Honda CR-V outside of the library. For some reason I went out again and drove our SUV into the lobby, to have it parked inside, maybe it is safer. Then the car was outside again. When I left the library I found the SUV missing so I went inside to talk to the officer there. He took my car remote and pressed it to see which car would be lighted. If one is lighted, that one should be our SUV. He tried one side of the parking lot. When he pressed the remote, many SUVs were lighted. He said, “There’s your car.” [laughing] I said, “No, see, there are many SUVs lights lighted.” Then he tried the other side. Same thing happened. Every time he tried I looked very carefully. Those SUVs really look like ours in the dark, but they were bigger. They were vans. The officer said maybe I had forgot if I had parked my car in a parking lot, and I said, “no, I just went to pick out something in my car, and officer my car was parked there.” i felt so upset and did not know what to do. Gradually people left the library. The library in one room downstairs in the building became a yoga room, where people were doing their yoga there. Seeing people there made me feel safer.
Looking up the tag for your own city is a strange experience. Because I totally know where this is :P

What’s your excuse for not getting to the polls yet?
I am in a terrible mood due to the inefficiency of the laundry system here at my dorm and also due to my sudden inability to fall asleep instantly (a characteristic I have previously never observed in myself).
Thus I read a long article on compulsive skin picking which I learned is not only a human behavior but also a behavior that mice manifest when missing a certain gene
There were pictures of the mice and I looked at them and something(s) inside of me died
Someone slap me hard enough to knock me out so I can fall unconscious and wake up in the morning as a human being again

Pawson House by John Pawson
Regulations prohibited alterations to the front of this 19th century house, but the design did radically alter the interior and backyard.
