i’m into really low commitment hangouts like lying on the floor near each other or falling asleep together or falling into an endless void together

I take the sharpest shears, 
A ball of twine
Cut a string for everyone in my life
To my belt loops I tie each string so tight
And attempt to hold on

But did you think its a spell for letting go?
I cast a spell for letting go
Oh…

found my (old ass) camera

now as soon as the batteries are charged I can start taking 1mil+ pics

a lot of people talk like capitalism is necessary to have innovation and I just think of all the brilliant and creative people I know who spend all of their time and energy worrying about how they’re going to have a roof over their heads and food to eat. capitalism doesn’t drive innovation, it stifles it and shackles it to the endlessly wasteful machinery of exploitation.

I’ve got some of this going on inside the cabin and tomorrow’s the day when we finally get to take it all away

Don’t Cry For Me, Arthropoda: Studies Find Signs of Emotion in Spiders
Individual spiders have character and personality, according to a paper published by theProceedings of the Royal Society B. The paper, titled Individual personalities shape task differentiation in a social spider, gives details of a study into role allocation in spider societies.It was previously assumed that individuals in social spider communities contributed homogenously, with all tasks, such as prey capture and colony defence, being performed equally by members.The study focused on Stegodyphus sarasinorum, a permanently social spider occurring in India and some surrounding countries. Led by Lena Grinsted of Aarhus University in Denmark, over 600 spiders were marked and observed, with tests singling out boldness and aggression. Variances in response showed that individuals were suited to particular roles. 
Individuals in the test group were highly related and of approximately the same age: the only variable was apparently their personality. The study suggests that task allocation is the result of character traits in individual spiders; personality does not appear to be shaped by random selection of task perfomance, therefore.Character and personality are often attributed only to humans, higher order mammals, and birds. Now it appears that arthropods also have responses that could be considered emotional.

found a better route to ceremonial nicotine ingestion

first successful ritual that involved any amount of drunkenness

and still no hangover, which is a mystery because I used to get unendingly sick from just half an ounce of alcohol

I had dreams about having to trade writing directly for food (like a 99 page term paper for a box of cheez nips, what the hell inflation) and getting kidnapped by a “deprogramming” “therapy” “institution”, but then I escaped their crappy van and had to hide naked in terrible Florida landscaping full of dried up yucca and barbwire and run barefoot to an old factory someone had redecorated into a Coral Castle-esque art museum…
