…”We dream of cars that will float and fly, or run on energy from a laser beam, or travel close to the ground without wheels. Such research may border in the fantastic, but so did the idea of a carriage going about the country without a horse”.
The Ford Book of Styling, 1963

ESPN’s FIFA World Cup montage is sensational.

“When all by myself, I can think of all kinds of clever remarks, quick comebacks to what no one said, and flashes of witty sociability with nobody. But all of this vanishes when I face someone in the flesh: I lose my intelligence, I can no longer speak, and after half an hour I just feel tired. Talking to people makes me feel like sleeping. Only my ghostly and imaginary friends, only the conversations I have in my dreams, are genuinely real and substantial.”

—   Fernando Pessoa (via wordsnquotes)

“I’m beginning to know myself. I don’t exist. I’m the space between what I’d like to be and what others made of me. Just let me be at ease and all by myself in my room.”

“My soul is impatient with itself, as with a bothersome child; its restlessness keeps growing and is forever the same. Everything interests me, but nothing holds me. I attend to everything, dreaming all the while. […]. I’m two, and both keep their distance - Siamese twins that aren’t attached.”

—   Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet (via rabbitinthemoon)

Phoenix Asteroid "Missed By A Mile" 909 Final Sessions


Missed By A Mile

There is someone else, she said
as tears fell down her scarlet red cheeks,
someone in my head. 
When I lay me down to rest each night she visits. 

Close your eyes
Let go of those ideas you have of leaving me behind
I’ll hunt you like a hound
You are so predictable, child. 

You won’t be missed by a mile
so head on out for the land
I won’t miss you, won’t long to be near to your side
I’m not gunning for you
I am you.

Not unlike you, I replied
A child lies behind these eyes
He pretends to be me
Wears a broken heart on his sleeve
Tells me stories

You are tired
Why can’t you see your dreams are now just lines around your eyes?
They’re eating you like cancer
You aren’t worthy of them, child.

You won’t be missed by a mile
so head on out for the land
I won’t miss you, won’t long to be near to your side
I’m not gunning for you…
