"Without forgetting it is quite impossible to live at all."
-Friedrich Nietzsche, On the Advantage and Disadvantage of History for Life
One of the reasons I decided to create a blog was to preserve much of the aesthetic appropriation that has served as script and soundtrack to my life since 2017. I need to remember that this stuff was there for me when I was wordless or thoughtless - when I paced the floors under the protection of the Holy Ghost - babbling in tongues (Oh! God! Oh! God! What am I gonna do?! No! No! No! Oh! God! And so on). It is important for me to let much of this speak for itself instead of making attempts at being profound.
Today, I’m sharing a song that I’d go lift the tone arm and drop the stylus back down on over and over.
I conjured much weeping with “I Can’t Get Over You” by Damien Jurado.
