“…I see your face, and I know I’m alive.
You’re shooting stars from the barrel of your eyes -
It drives me crazy. It drives me wild.
Everytime, Everytime you drive me wild.
It’s a beautiful ride.”
~ Deftones, ‘Beauty School’
Cater to the hollow…”
“Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.”
“Surely all art is the result of one’s having been in danger, of having gone through an experience all the way to the end, where no one can go any further.”
“Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.”
“All the soarings of my mind begin in my blood.”
Maynard James Keenan interview from April 17th, 1987.
“I walked into the room dripping in gold.
Yeah, dripping in gold.
A wave of heads did turn, or so I’ve been told…
My heart broke when I saw you kept your gaze controlled.
Oh, I cannot solve.
Why can’t you want me like the other boys do?
They stare at me while I stare at you.
It’s true, I crave you.”
~ Flight Facilities ‘Crave You’ (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix)
ϟKRI||ƩX sketched from this am. I really have no greater muse than music and musicians, with almost no bias to genres. I never really was able to separate music into genres. It didn’t make sense to classify it that way. I can separate it into emotional responses though.
Consequently, I was up until till 3am this morning with Sonny Moore just flooding my ears with insane amounts of bass and lovely wubby stuff. It felt amazing. I have a feeling I’ll see him again.
Fuck, I can’t turn it off. Everything I’ve heard from him has me in a trance. Hate it if you want, but its at me on a different level now. He has my respect.
“…Cradle of leadership. Well when the bow breaks, the cradle will fall - and it has fallen here. Makers of men - creators of leaders…be careful what kind of leaders you’re producing here.
I don’t know if Charlie’s silence here is right or wrong…i am not a judge or jury. But Ill tell you this - he wont sell anyone out to buy his future! And that, my friends…is called integrity. That’s called courage.
That’s the stuff leaders should be made of.”
Suck and suck.
Suckin up all you can - suckin up all you can suck.
Workin up under my patience, like a little tick.
Fat little parasite.
Suck me dry.
Not being tense - but ready.
Not thinking - but not dreaming.
Not being set-but flexible,
Liberation from the uneasy sense of confinement.
It is being wholly and quietly alive, aware and alert, ready for whatever may come.
— Bruce Lee , Tao of Jeet Kune Do.
