Oh, I wish that I’d met him (Adam) before I wrote Hamlet…. He would’ve provided the most perfect role model imaginable.
just got back from watching only lovers left alive. mr. jarmusch was there to introduce. the film was beautiful and delicious. i knew i’d be in love with adam from the moment i saw him. he of course reminds me of myself. all i’m missing is the eve and the long legs.
and the FILM is amazing- pure ART. also made me proud to be a new yorker, the experience of going. being there in line with groups of boho hipsters ranging from the 60s to 90s generation. leather, tattoos, long unbrushed hair, army coats, combat boots, smell of colitas and ganja.
FINALLY!!! got my ticket, cant wait to see mr. jarmusch! and Adam & Eve…
"shoot the hostage" ah classic! thanx amc… makes me think of bob belcher and his speed bus - 90s baby!
I stopped trying to be anything. I accepted myself in all my human disorder. You might wanna do the same.
Dr. Perry Lyman to Justin on his growth - Thumbsucker (via an-echo)
My father told me; this world was only a preparation for the next. That all we can ask is that we leave it having loved and being loved.
i’ve been studying the dharma for some weeks. it kinda just happened. i’d been feeling this weight on me for a long while and then one day i ran into Gautama Buddha. And his story, with all the respect in the world, his feelings/reflections before achieving enlightenment reminded me of my own, thoughts and suffering. so i started to read, aimlessly. turns one i already knew alot of it, i already feel many of the dharmas as truth. now i haven’t taken refuge. its a process and i dont care to explain it.
one amazing thing did happen some weeks ago, i went to a dharma center for some collective guided meditation on fear, forgiveness and karma…. anyhow we got into death. the purpose of death as an end and beginning. the fear of death being irrational and ignorant as its something inevitable. and a judicious fear: dying and not getting to live a life you’re proud of. not getting to go with less bad karma, not getting to be and most of all make someone happy.
so thats the purpose of the quote up there. its like you watch the whole movie and then the best part pops up- ah yes, this is why young kai had to suffer- because he got to live with the beautiful burden of this kind of love. dont fear death, cause we’re all dying, only fear dying and not getting to love and be loved. from my own short experience i can say that once you have that kind of love, there is no fear or regret. i will die happy, now or in 80 years.
'going down? - not if i can help it'

miss piggy looking regal next to kermit!!
a great old friend of mine shared this with me. its exactly what i feel. to be #happy, make someone happy.
besides the time ray charles sang this song to willie nelson for his 70th birthday… this to me is the best cover of leon russel’s words which by the way represent the best understanding of true love.
i love you in a place where there’s no space or time.
