  2. O man o man:

Billions of years from now, he began to narrate, long after city lights and the humans who made them have disappeared from the Earth, other intelligent species might eventually begin to see traces of humanity’s long-since erased presence on the planet.  Consider deep-sea squid, Paglen suggested, who would have billions of years to continue developing and perfecting their incredible eyesight, a sensory skill perfect for peering through the otherwise impenetrable darkness of the oceans—yet also an eyesight that could let them gaze out at the stars in deep space.  Perhaps, Paglen speculated, these future deep-sea squid with their extraordinary powers of sight honed precisely for focusing on tiny points of light in the darkness might drift up to the surface of the ocean on calm nights to look upward at the stars, viewing a scene that will have rearranged into whole new constellations since the last time humans walked the Earth. And, there, the squid might notice something.  High above, seeming to move against the tides of distant planets and stars, would be tiny reflective points that never stray from their locations. They are there every night; they are more eternal than even the largest and most impressive constellations in the sky sliding nightly around them.

  6. Athena was remade as the favorite daughter of Zeus, born fully armed from his forehead. Zeus lay with Metis, the goddess of crafty thought and wisdom, but he immediately feared the consequences. It had been prophesied that Metis would bear children more powerful than the sire, even Zeus himself. In order to forestall these dire consequences, after lying with Metis, Zeus “put her away inside his own belly”; he “swallowed her down all of a sudden”. He was too late: Metis had already conceived.

Eventually Zeus experienced an enormous headache; Prometheus  cleaved Zeus’ head with the double-headed Minoan axe, the labrys. Athena leaped from Zeus’ head, fully grown and armed, with a shout — “and pealed to the broad sky her clarion cry of war.

  8. THE BIRDS ARE TRYING TO SLEEP

    Last night I went to first Friday in Fishtown, when all the galleries open their doors and put out tiny cups of wine and lots of free snacks of the hummus and chips & salsa variety. I went to Pizza Brain but there was an hour wait for slices (WUT?! I couldn’t even be mad because I love the owner very much and he improvised a poetic explanation about a shit clogged river and that’s why we couldn’t have pizza).

    Then I was passing this place called The Apocalypse Now that is spray painted with bats and black ivy, it is cool, and the dude who lives inside came out. He felt compelled by my “aura” to come outside and tell me his thoughts on technology, self-pity, corporate America, and also that women should never have children (unclear on what he thought would happen to the human race, maybe not a concern for him). He also screamed “THE BIRDS ARE TRYING TO SLEEP YOU ASSHOLES” at some folks having fun with fireworks. He was in his underwear and would only introduce himself as Thick Vein (weak name).

    Do you ever give crazy people more credence than you should? Just by listening to them, really. He told me to go to the dollar store and buy a timer, set it for five minutes, and go quiet enough to hear my subconscious. I didn’t think that was such a terrible idea. But he also said “Fuck the Dalai Lama” and I had to laugh that one right off because frankly, I don’t even like retyping that within quotations (I really love the Dalai Lama).

    Another stranger told me a story about this one time he had a girl over to his place for the very first time—a big deal, cause he liked her. In the morning he woke up first, went to the bathroom, and when he came back to bed, there was a gigantic fucking cockroach like an inch from this girl’s face, right on the pillow. She’s sleeping and he’s hoping to hell she doesn’t wake up and waving the cockroach away with silent scream urgency, like the roach is his dog and he’s mute, and he does it! He gets the roach away and when she wakes up, it’s pure pillow. They have been together a year now. So, there are happy endings out there. I mean, is that some Disney shit OR WHAT?

  12. SELF-WORTH VAMPIRES

    …are very important to understand. Perhaps you have encountered them, sucking you down. They have a variety of feeding methods:

    1. Feigned confusion at the method by which you’ve done something that works stellar, except “Hmm…I would’ve done it differently.”

    This one works because it’s subjective and therefore hard to argue with. It’s an implicit assertion of superiority.

    2. Identifying and preying upon vulnerabilities

    They’re super good at spotting the openings in your worth ribs and poking you right there. This one is a str8 up dick move.

    3. Comparing themselves to you in terms of their strengths, but never their weaknesses. By uniformly casting aside the importance of arenas in which they’re weak, they effectively erase their weaknesses while reinforcing the total validity of their world view.

    Basically, it boils down to a steady stream of small criticisms designed to tear at your self-worth. Finding and pointing out your small imperfections makes them feel bigger and better.

    There are two weapons against self-worth vampires:

    1. Remember that you do not leave your self-worth lying out where any old comment can kick it. Your self-worth is tucked away in a vault in that Harry Potter bank run by magic and goblins. Your self-worth is stored with Jay and Bey’s jewelry. It’s encrypted like Hillary’s phone. SHIT IS SECURE.

    2. KILL ‘EM WITH KINDNESS

    This one is hard to do, especially if you’re dealing with these bloodsuckers daily. But think of it this way: self-worth vampires WANT to make you feel bad.

    When they see you down, bruised, snippy, defensive, passive aggressive, whatever—that affirms their success. That’s how they know they won. That’s when they feel full.

    Do not feed the vampires! KILL ‘EM WITH KINDNESS. Watch them become befuddled, then wither away like your good shit is so much garlic.

  18. GREAT NEWS!!

    The middle finger seeds I planted in your front plot in February have shot up beautifully! Step out, see dirt do my bidding. Step out, see me sending you back. Step out, savor that nature. Press your pasty face against what’s wild. Take a whiff and slouch away.
