apparently. well, this is only the second time this has happened but these owners say these cats are rarely seen by visitors or even housemates and to the owners' great surprise the cats are rubbing up against me. weirdest thing is I'm not even a cat person. I mean I like em and all but I've never housed one.

maybe it's my personality.

update #2:

spring break is on the horizon and for the first time I'm not too jazzed about going home. maybe it's because of last visit's bs or maybe it's because my gf's all pouts about me leaving. probably both.

update #3:

frick on a stick. got to find a new roommate. I really get along well with the one I have now so kinda sucks got to find someone new but I guess that's life. here's hoping the next one's chill.

update #4:

made the best chili I ever did have couple weeks ago using that crockpot (finally) my mom sent me. so amazingly easy. literally just dumping ingredients into it and leaving it alone all day. that's my kind of cooking.

though I do like pushing stuff around in a pan over the stove. something really satisfying about cooking stuff like that. maybe because I feel like I'm actually cooking, lol. made some pretty finger-lickin' good chicken lettuce wraps that way a couple of days ago. 

update #5:

entertainments

watched Citizen Kane finally. pretty good. the make-up was particularly remarkable. I had to remind myself that these actors did not actually age during the film. had some really powerful and memorable shots. interesting narrative style. anyone else seen it? what you think about it?

House of Cards is back and pretty dang good. trying to watch an episode a week.

Broadchurch season 2 is pissing me off in a good way. I mean it's great but you know when characters are pissing you the piss off? yeah. 
that being said I've only seen episode 1 so.

they finally put season 5 of Archer up on Netflix. still funny af. need to check out Community soon.

also RIP Parks & Rec. one of THE best shows. there were lulls in each season but, imo, there was never a single just plain old bum season and I think that's quite an achievement. not even The Office pulled that off.

so P&R I applaud you

:iconclapplz:

final update:

still writing.

Oh! Gravity is the title of a Switchfoot album and one of the songs. when I first joined dA I was a big fan of the band. the lead singer and writer talked a lot about entropy and fall outs and well yeah. just seemed right for how I was feeling. I joined after a kind of unraveling.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

going to devote the next few hours to my inbox. reading and commenting while trying this peach cobbler tea my mom sent me. thanks mom.

I'll be in my chatroom: chat.deviantart.com/chat/Gravi…. if you have something you want opinions on, reactions, suggestions, whatever, link me up... The Artist Is Present. lol

or if you want to talk about art and writing. I watched this pretty interesting documentary about the "grandmother of performance art" and it got me thinking about the meaning of art...again. if you've seen the doc you'll probably get that lame joke I made in the previous para.

I watched Broadchurch for a second time with a friend. still heartbreaking af. anyone else seen it? yes yes, it's the original version of Gracepoint. speaking of british shows...fucking Black Mirror. check it out. modern day Twilight Zone. 

I saw Selma. when I was going to buy a ticket, the lady in front of us asked what we were going to see. I said selma. she said, eh, I don't like scary movies. I guess Selma sounds like a paranormal movie? but it was a scary movie on some level. it's scary that shit is still happening today. 

is it wrong to be happy my horrible ex is in a shitty place socially? so she came crawling back to me. what goes around comes around. I'm giving her sorry butt a second chance as a friend (in the words of tswift "we are never ever ever getting back together") . she's actually treating me like a decent human being. amazing what hitting rock bottom will do to someone.

after I get done going through my inbox, and after I've done some med school stuff, I'm going to work on chapter 3 of my book. chapter 3 guys! ...not that far along but I can't believe I've written anything at all. hopefully once I have a better feeling of where the book is going plotwise I can post a chapter. 

that's about all.

hope y'all are well. what's been going on?

--Gravity

oh, here's some music. it's a bit brooding buuuut me gusta:

Broadchurch OST -- Main Theme



...not really sure why they are using it for the fantastic four soundtrack. the music was written specifically with the broadchurch story in mind. I mean the broadchurch creator had all four of this guys albums and listened to them while writing the show. then he asked olafur to write the music for the show. so kiiiinda pissed me off they repurposed it for this movie. anyway...
what's there to live for in this whole wide world? yeah, I killed myself. so fucking what? nobody will miss me. not even you, soft shining eyes.

good people tell lies. they say the truth hurts. doesn't it make sense then, the ones who love you most in this whole wide world would lie to you. lie to your beautiful, pink-cheeked, baby face. they want to keep you innocent. keep you safe.

I got these flowers for you. after I left church-- the pastor gave a great talk. he talked about jesus and how he was famous when he didn't want to be. and I thought, ain't that a funny thing? he don't want his children to parade him around like the god he is. he healed someone and you know what jesus said? son of god said, don't tell no body. everybody knows about jesus now. you know jesus now, don't you? I imagine y'all are best friends. what was I saying? oh. I got some flowers for you after the service. they say you ain't suppose to pick wildflowers but I couldn't help it. just thought you would want some of god's summer creations. all for you. don't tell no body.

you've never really cried. till your head hurts. that's a real weep. tears falling till you black out. in the morning you don't know when you fell asleep. 

at noon I saw a line of cars on the highway, all flashing their hazard lights. I thought, are they in some kind of parade? for a moment I thought to join them. but as I passed I saw it. the hearse leading the way. a limo behind it. both gray silver. a cold steel. maybe the color of the family's grief for a body in a box on the highway. I whispered my condolences.

can you taste the crush of a sunset's dying blush?

 
1:10
Stop being so goddamn amazing.

wait, don't stop. no, I didn't mean it. come back...

last line is from this song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5oInh…
Loading...
I.

In the beginning,
nothing made sense.

II.

We entered into a state of delirium;
all sanity and reason fled
as startled birds.

III.

We clung to each other in a dizzy space,
a familiar space. Together. Confusion
held comfort.

IV.

Blue purple black light --
Have we seen the iris of God?
Yet we live and breathe and walk.

V.

We run.

VI.

He chases.

VII.

We are afraid of why.
For anger. For love.

The question of life:
Do we stop or do we keep at this
breakneck pace?
On the Nature of Love
part II came to me on the drive to school. it was raining, cold, and traffic was horrible. I was listening to the new Ariel Pink album Pom Pom and thinking about far more serious things. but precious things.

sweet baby Jesus, Richter slays me.

Tag a quality deviant: You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Heart
