Akron's finest poetry and garbage.

“Hemingway spoke a lot about that kind of daily struggle that every writer goes through. And that’s the grind: You’re never sure, as a writer, that you’ll really reach the peak. In the middle of a project, you never know that the journey will be worth it. I think when I was very young, I thought that when I got older, I’d reach a stage where I’d be confident in my writing—where I could just sit down every day and happily churn it out. That doesn’t happen. It never gets any better. You’re always unsure, and you’re never know whether your work will turn out how you want it to.”

The Sisters of Mercy - Dominion/Mother Russia


"Dominion/Mother Russia" | The Sisters of Mercy

I’m living in films for the sake of Russia 
A Kino Runner for the DDR 
And the fifty-two daughters of the revolution 
Turn the gold to chrome 
Gift … nothing to lose 
Stuck inside of Memphis with the mobile home, sing: 
Mother Russia 
Mother Russia 
Mother Russia rain down down down

Teaching my cat to smile

“I remember the day I stood in front of a great, famous sculpture by a great, famous sculptor and didn’t like it. Such a moment is a landmark in the life of any young artist. It begins in confusion and guilt and self-doubt and ends in a triumphant breakthrough: I see the world and I see that I am free before it, I am not at the mercy of historical opinion and what I want to turn away from, I turn away from, what I want to approach, I approach.”
