Poetry: three mismatched shoes at the entrance
of a dark alley.”

We made this thing that is fluorescent and psychedelic and confusing and we don’t understand much about it but we hope that you like it.

Poetic genius is not verbal talent (verbal talent is neccesary, since it is a question of words, but it often leads one astray): it is the divining of ruins secretly expected, in order that so many immutable things become undone, lose themselves, communicate.”
— Georges Bataille (via viperslang)
Hey there! I’m just reminding you that I have a dragon egg, and if you like to click on stuff, I’d sure appreciate your help in hatching it!
May you choose the correct sweater, jacket, or overcoat weight before leaving the house.
A healthy relationship is one where two independent people just make a deal that they will help make the other person the best version of themselves.”

Terrance Houle: Urban Indian Series (2004),
Born December 9, 1975, in Calgary. Lives and works in Calgary. In a practice that ranges from performance to photography to film and video works, Blackfoot artist Terrance Houle remakes the troubled history of colonialism and First Nations identity with a roguish wit and punk-rock edge. His strategy matches self-deprecating humour with an uneasy undertone; the results cut away at both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal notions of an urban Indian status quo. In his Urban Indian Series (2004), Houle is pictured grocery shopping, working in an office cubicle and riding public transit—all in elaborate powwow regalia.
In the performance video Friend or Foe (2010–11), he plays off cultural and historical gaps in communication while dressed in a loincloth and communicating by sign language.

developmental-strategies asked: How do you figure out what to do with your life
Holy shit, babe, you almost never do and you almost never stick with it.
It’s a big ole bumblefuck of “this is what I love” and “this is how I survive” and you find the most middle ground possible and see how these ebb and flow almost constantly. To live life, though, I suggest always taking detours, learning to say no, realizing things will always change, and trying to keep your “things you love” level as balanced as possible with your survival.
Find out who you ARE, first, and find out how much you can take and it’s the best running start you’ll have.
And uh, remember: it’s a balance of “it’s never too late” and “your time here is so short”, but you can probably always open new doors if you notice they are there.
