10. Who was the last person you had a deep conversation with?
my dad and i were building a coffin (or rather, a shelf in the shape of a coffin) and he joked about how the ominous associations that the shape itself has would give an old lady a heart attack. this led to a discussion about death, and how our christian culture is so afraid of death and darkness, because it’s in the interest of our leaders that we live in fear. cultures throughout history have joked about and lived comfortably with the notion of death, and as a result, lived more joyous, productive lives. i related the theory that reminding yourself of an imminent death is also reminding yourself of the temporary state of life, and how if you think you’ll live forever, you’ll keep procrastinating, whereas if you acknowledge that you’re on borrowed time, you’ll be in more of a rush to be productive. the conversation branched all over the place, and before we knew it, the project was done.
38. Describe your dream girl/guy?
tall, intelligent, with hair like golden strands of silk, and a smile like the light of sunrise. she’s sharp in every way it counts, but with curves like the side of a Shelby Cobra. but enough about Blake Lively
i wouldn’t say i have a single dream girl or guy, because my tastes range, and i crave different things at different times, but having progressed through a rogue’s gallery of exes, i’ve come to find qualities which i do/don’t like.
ultimately, i just find myself attracted to people who are well-spoken, are strong, independent, self-sufficient women, who have hobbies, interests, knowledge about things, people who are passionate, people who are positive, people who kiss like they’re about to cum, people who know and care about the world beyond themselves, people who know how to spell, make logical decisions, who appreciate little things we encounter while walking through stores, who will sing praises to the brilliance of a movie’s dialogue, and clandestinely criticize that one girl’s eyebrows with you
also if they listen to Drake, or Tyga, or some shit like that, they probably don’t value intelligence, and i want nothing to do with them.
70. Names of your best friends?
i have a lot of friends, and each one is the best for a different reason, still i find that there are some with whom i share a lot. personality-wise, i feel like Moby and Diego are like, extensions of myself. we have parallel thoughts and opinions even if our tastes differ. they’re also the ones i see most frequently. then there’s also those friends like Skyler, Lauren, Jonathan, and a few others, whom i don’t spend time with in real life, but we’re always sharing links and geeking out about stuff online.
89. Name a person you hate?
you know, turning a deaf-ear to the psuedo-celebrities in pop culture has really made me hate less people. the kardashians still take the cake for being everything i stand against, and also those shit rappers like YG that somehow have a following while being dumb as doorknobs
35. Would you rather live without TV or music?
this one’s surprisingly difficult.
i hate television. i haven’t really watched TV for years because it’s such a waste of time. you sit there mindlessly for hours on end, being flooded with advertisements, and getting sucked into these poor-quality reality show marathons that you watch for no reason other than the fact that they’re on, and you feel like that box owes you some sort of entertainment.
however, i love TV shows. i love Mad Men, Game Of Thrones, and American Horror Story. these shows that take you away for 12 hours a year, cause you to build feelings and relationships with people that don’t exist, in worlds that aren’t our own, and then have you pacing in anticipation for more. i love getting excited for things, be it a package in the mail or a summer movie, and TV episodes happen with a greater regularity. that experience, the story, the writing, the emotional investment, that’s what i like about TV.
however, it does require more effort than music. having a steady internet connection, finding a working link, closing popups, letting it buffer, looking up at the screen, it just takes more than plugging in the music player, and listening to stuff. music is portable, it’s accessible, and i can enjoy it while i draw or ride my bike. so i guess i’ll go with music.
