"Sir Francis, he was a figurehead of great courage and bold exploits. No one like him ever existed in my family. Why do you think I drink? Because I know I’ll never be like him.”

Wow, talk about a coincidence. I’ve felt so awful tonight, and this comes along. Worth sharing.

I really need to remember this.

I. Fucking. Love. This. Quote. It actually throws me from my bad moods.

what the fuck

this is the scariest shit i’ve ever seen in my life

This is so cool. Eat Otomo Yoshihide’s heart out.

I’m used to associating this sort of heavy creepy distortion type audio as being achieved by internal studio mixing. Picking sections, warping them, reversing, repeating, all that sort of thing done with the board tools and programming suites. I didn’t stop to think that the same sort of effects could be achieved PHYSICALLY by fucking with the playback tools and the storage mediums themelves. It’s incredibly clever, especially when they introduce the cut-apart and reconstructed vinyl platters, it becomes the audio equivalent of cut-paste collaging or magnetic poetry. It takes something as ethereal and insubstantial as music, and makes it as tangible as sculpture.

Whoa.

Appreciation

While I was hesitant to join Tumblr in the beginning, I am more than not, glad that I joined this community

Social websites, I tend to hold a certain bitterness towards. People constantly documenting their every motion and thought - most of which I care little for

While I strongly encourage others to express themselves and share their ideas to build upon newly discovered unions, many times I can find it all very tiresome … Especially since people tend to regularly ostracize each other for this very thing

People talk a lot. Heh but that’s not something we can really help though now is it?

I just wanna say it is a real pleasure seeing what flows through my feed. I love the passion, color, fun, and dare I say, geekery of those I watch from beyond my screen. It is a refreshing reminder to myself that I am not so alone as I’ve forced myself to believe… But I digress

The real reason I wrote this is to say that I am overall happy from my stay here witnessing new births of expression. Particularly when it comes to art. There is just so much richness and NEW here that I’ve discovered and damn, it just excites me

I am feeling inspired with art lately - despite other mental struggles - and I have Tumblr to thank. Just thought I’d write this NOW before this good feeling dissipates

I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.

Words cannot describe how much I love this post.

I have always considered scientists to be creative and artistic in many ways.

They aspire to discover. To change and shape the world. To bring about new possibilities and contribution. Asking questions and seeking out answers to add to the world around them.

There are many different kinds of artists out there guys. It’s not all about pretty pictures, creative writing, dance, and music.
