a cross-media moment.
this took me aback and i thought i’d share it here on tumblr: i posted this photo of myself and the post-posting comment i made about it got over two thousand likes on facebook. my comments never get such a huge surge of likes. i spent all yesterday thinking about why.
why?

Seeing a real face is uplifting because I can’t stand looking at my own because all the faces I see are photoshopped.

this reminds me of a comment i heard at the lorde concert last night. there were three girls behind me, probably all about 19 or 20….which is to say: her age.
one of them shrieked “FUCK!!!! LORDE IS PERFECT!!! I FUCKING HATE MYSELF!!”
and i thought….why does one have to mean the other?

How so?

1. You’re saying your work is not worth anything.
2. You’re saying that you are not worth anything.
3. You’re saying that whoever asks to be paid for the same work is, evidently, a thief.
4. You’re making those who rob you richer and stronger.
5. If you work for free now, the next…

oh my, basically… yes.

Q

Anonymous asked:

You're not an asshole for not wanting to be in a relationship with that girl. I actually think it's quite noble. A lot of people would probably just agree and then cheat/fuck shit up even worse down the line when even more feelings are involved. Being honest isn't bad. It's brave knowing you have to hurt someone because you're not willing to be a liar.

yochlochlo:

Yeah. But I really, really love the girl. She’s my best friend and beautiful and smart and impossibly kind. So I don’t feel noble at all. And I am, generally, willing to lie. Hell I’m a writer, I’ve made a career out of lying. What I’m not willing to do is hurt her any more than I already have. Someday soon she’s going to find someone else way better than me and I’ll HATE it but for her and only for her I’ll suck that up and do anything to remain close because she’s wonderful.

Adult relationships are really hard.

I’m the biggest nerd: wearing the National, listening to the National, about to go to the National @ Celebrate Bklyn. I’m afraid of everyone, even myself. Honk if you like boy bands.
