“Don’t let us forget that the causes of human actions are usually immeasurably more complex and varied than our subsequent explanations of them.” —Dostoyevsky (via laughlikesilver)
“People will often make the case, “We can’t be that stupid, or we would have been evolutionarily wiped out as a species a long time ago.” I don’t agree. I find myself saying, “Well, no. Gee, all you need to do is be far enough along to be able to get three square meals or to solve the calorie problem long enough so that you can reproduce. And then, that’s it. You don’t need a lot of smarts. You don’t have to do tensor calculus. You don’t have to do quantum physics to be able to survive to the point where you can reproduce.” One could argue that evolution suggests we’re not idiots, but I would say, “Well, no. Evolution just makes sure we’re not blithering idiots. But, we could be idiots in a lot of different ways and still make it through the day.” —David Dunning (via The Anosognosic’s Dilemma: Something’s Wrong but You’ll Never Know What It Is (Part 1), Opinionator Blog - NYTimes.com) (via roomthily)
A man crouches on the street with static in his eyes, and takes it as a sign from the gods above to shout from the rooftops and write letters to the government. He's writing revelations for the showdown, and now he's slamming down chords and leading a crowd ten thousand strong. They're shouting in unison, shouting in unison: "Mom and dad, wake from your slumbers, we're gonna burn this motherfucker down, because sometimes we burn and steal and rape and kill and sacrifice just to remind ourselves that we're still alive."
I followed your regular blog AND your music blog, because you have great taste in music. It's so great to find someone else who loves Nana Grizol as much as me! :)
Ah you rock! So hard. As do they. :D
