1. "People run from rain but
    sit
    in bathtubs full of
    water."
    — 

    Charles Bukowski (via bittersweetsongs)

    Wow bukowski so profound do you also bathe fully clothed you dickhead. “Oohh isn’t it funny that a person will eat when they’re hungry but will duck if you throw an apple at their face”

    (via coolestpriest)

    Holy fuck. I’ve often wondered whether I bite the bullet and read Bukowski, given that he’s one of the more widely read modern poets. This single handedly answered that question for me, I shall not purchase anything Bukowski.

  2. I marathoned Enemy and Under The Skin tonight.

    They both get better every time I watch them. Enemy is singularly mesmerising. Under The Skin never fails to fuck me up. I’m doing worse than usual tonight, too, because I’m 3/4 a bottle of wine down already.

     

  3. JUST SAW GONE GIRL

    I just saw Gone Girl and it’s fucking fantastic. Ben Affleck deserves lavish praise, Rosamund Pike deserves many awards for best actress. Tyler Perry does an absolutely excellent job. But the best performance in the film is Carrie Coon. This woman is breaking through in style. The fact that Gone Girl is her film debut shows exactly how much promise she has.

    I had read the book so it’s hard for me to judge the suspense and how the story plays out, but my friend said she was never sure who to side with, which is the whole point of the mystery side of the film. But this is a film about a crumbling marriage, even more so than the book was.

    The Oscars this year will be a race between this and Inherent Vice. It’s one of the best mainstream films this year and it will launch the careers of Rosamund Pike (who’s been in the background for far too long) and Carrie Coon.

     

  4. Freak Show

    Saying that American Horror Story: Freak Show is going to be a train wreck does not do train wrecks justice. The circumstances in which a train wreck is comparable to Freak Show is if it were a train filled with liquid shit, and that train comes off the rails on a hill and tumbles down the hill  and crushes half of the inhabitants of a little village that live at the bottom of the hill and literally drowns the rest of the inhabitants in liquid human shit, and then because of the bacteria from the decomposing bodies and the shit that area becomes a biohazard risk and a new disease is born that wipes out 95% of the world’s population.

    If that’s what you mean, then Freak Show is going to be a train wreck, yes.

     

  5. The Leftovers

    I just binged on The Leftovers and I think it is an incredible piece of television. I know a lot of the reviews are just good, the main criticism being that it doesn’t have well defined arcs. But I think we’re at a point where television, and indeed all storytelling, can choose not to be beholden to plot.

    I see a lot of similarity in style between The Leftovers and Enlightened, and I think had enlightened premiered after the leftovers, it would still be around. But at the same time, I don’t think hbo would have picked up the leftovers if it hadn’t taken the risk with enlightened.

  9. I just bought new underwear and they’re microfibre and they’re more comfortable than anything I’ve ever experienced in my life, and I own a set of 2000 thread count sheets. These are like silk had a baby with satin.

  11. Last night I wrote what I think could be the best poem I will ever write in my life, which is an all kinds of incredible and disconcerting feeling.

    Incidentally, it is a poem about Under The Skin, which is probably one of the most important films released so far this decade.

    If I’m feeling generous, I may upload it later.

  14. Don’t share a house. Just don’t do it.

    I spent two hours today cleaning the kitchen, organising the pantry, disinfecting everything, mopping and vacuuming today with no help from my housemate (my revenge was listening to Dillinger at an abrasive volume while cleaning). He just went downstairs to cook himself dinner/lunch (he eats dinner at 4:30 in the afternoon). I just went downstairs to get more coffee and there are drips of fucking steak juice over the kitchen bench and the floor tiles. The house literally still smells of metho and scented disinfectant and he leaves steak juice on the bench and floor after his first meal.

    My housemate is, without a doubt, one of the rudest most inconsiderate people I’ve ever met. This is the guy who’s girlfriend came down for a weekend and ended up staying for three weeks and didn’t even introduce herself to me or speak a single word to me during those three weeks.

    P.s I’m not just renting either. This is MY house and I’m renting out the room that I don’t use.

    Rant over.
