“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”—Anaïs Nin (via writersbump)
“You’re like a mad little scientist” says KEXP host Cheryl Waters to Grimes during her 3-track session for KEXP; she couldn’t have said it any better. She pushes and twirls buttons, samples her own voice and beats as if she spends her days doing it (she kind of does, actually). Watch the full session above, in which features live renditions of Symphonia IX (My Wait Is U), Genesis and Be A Body (侘寂), plus an interview.
A police surveillance video taken the night that Trayvon Martin was shot dead shows no blood or bruises on George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who says he shot Martin after he was punched in the nose, knocked down and had his head slammed into the ground.
The surveillance video, which was obtained exclusively by ABC News, shows Zimmerman arriving in a police cruiser. As he exits the car, his hands are cuffed behind his back. Zimmerman is frisked and then led down a series of hallways, still cuffed.
Zimmerman, 28, is wearing a red and black fleece and his face and head are cleanly shaven. He appears well built, hardly the portly young man depicted in a 2005 mug shot that until a two days ago was the single image the media had of Zimmerman.
A Night In Tunisia | Dizzy Gillespie & Charlie Parker
Charlie Parker is considered one of the most influential jazz artists of his time, and had he not died tragically at 34, his success would have known no bounds. Instead, he passed in his friends hotel room on March 12th, 1955. This ones for you, Bird.
“You are not alone. You are instead lonely. There is loneliness as can exist only in the midst of numbers and numbers of people who don’t know you, who don’t care about you, who won’t let you care about them.”—James Simon Kunen, The Strawberry Statement (via gaws)
“To him she seemed so beautiful, so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else’s heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter. He had not missed a single one of her gestures, not one of the indications of her character, but he did not dare approach her for fear of destroying the spell.”—Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Love in the Time of Cholera (via madame-curie)
