This Prada show is kind of how I try to look any time I have the chance. Like Jenny Holzer told me: soft and lovely.

The hall and elevator lights in my building are off (but not the emergency elevator lights) so now every time I get in or out of the elevator I have the distinct feeling that I’m stepping into a Resident Evil boss fight. #selfie

"For a progressive sexual movement, even one that may want to produce marriage as an option for non-heterosexuals, the proposition that marriage should become the only way to sanction or legitimize sexuality is unacceptably conservative."

Perfect World—Liz Phair (1999)

"

JD: No, it didn’t make me feel more separate from it. It made me feel good. It made me feel closer to it. Closer to it. I was so unhappy writing that book because it was just a very hard book for me to write, and I didn’t realize until I finished it how depressed it had made me to write it. Then I finished it and suddenly it was like having something lifted from the top of my head, you know? Suddenly I was a happy person.

BLVR: It always happens, for me, that I have a certain attitude toward the world for the time-period I’m writing a book—

JD: Right. You borrow the mood of the book in some way.

BLVR: It’s hard to find a book that’s safe to write. Because one always goes to dark or difficult places.

JD: Exactly. Sometimes you don’t want to go there.

BLVR: But then where can you go? I mean, it’s the only place to go, right?

JD: Right.
