You know that type of laughter that starts off as a small chuckle but kinda builds up inside your throat, eventually mounting into a full blown, bent over yourself, holding your stomach as you guffaw uproariously?Yeeeep.

this should be a sculpture about the human condition entitled ‘Unbridled Optimism Meets An Uncaring Universe’

There are photos that tell a story, then there are photos that tell a story.

I should shower tonight. I am not going to shower tonight.

A novel, by me.

"let me uncover the silver in your dark hair
the weight of your bones
I want to witness the beauty of your repair

Douglas Adams quote by Britt Wilson

Should Cap, as Vulture suggests, be more old-fashioned in his attitudes on gender, race or sexuality? I’m inclined to think not. For one, World War II saw massive social upheaval in both the first two categories, and we’ve already seen Cap work alongside a strong, authoritarian woman, so it seems weird that he’d suddenly have a problem with that. He’s also well established as both an underdog himself and a champion of same, so it would be strange for him to suddenly take a stance against tolerance. Rogers is not a man desperate to prove himself; he remains the same kid that he was underneath, trying to do what he feels is right rather than subscribing to some outside notion of machismo that demands he also be sexist or homophobic or something. And aside from any questions of decency and responsible filmmaking, from a storytelling point of view it would be endlessly distracting if Cap suddenly started making homophobic statements or patting passing women on the butt (he wasn’t exactly a ladykiller in the ’40s; why would he suddenly turn boorish now?).

What’s important and interesting about Cap is exactly what some people dismiss as boring. It’s that decency and honesty and sense of moral authority. In a film world full of compromised characters, flawed protagonists and out-and-out anti-heroes, Steve Rogers is a breath of fresh air. Someone with no secrets, who literally wears his high ideals as a uniform and gets on with the job at hand, is far more interesting than any number of self-torturing, whiny man-children.

And can we stop using the term ‘old-fashioned’ when we really mean boorish and narrow-minded?

FIRST LINES FROM NEW BOOKS OUT TODAY: SEPTEMBER 10, 2012
“The first to die was ProtesilausA focused man who hurried to darknessWith forty black ships leaving the land behindMen sailed with him from those flower-lit cliffsWhere the grass gives growth to everythingPyrasus Iton Pteleus AntronHe died in mid-air jumping to be first ashoreThere was his house half-builtHis wife rushed out clawing her facePodarcus his altogether less impressive brotherTook over command but that was long agoHe’s been in the black earth now for thousands of year.”Memorial: A Version of Homer’s Iliad by Alice Oswald


A “version” of the Iliad in which Oswald translates every death—and only the deaths—so that the poem becomes what the poem is. Oswald has stated she wants to translates the poem’s enargeia, what she calls “the bright unbearable reality” of the Iliad. This is not the poem that starts “μῆνιν ἄειδε, θεὰ”. Menis is not the key word to this poem; the rage of Achilles passes by like a ghost. The gods and goddesses keep to the margins. What remains, then, is the song, and the list of the dead.

I WANT THIS LIKE BURNING
I have wanted this book for at least a year since I heard about it, oh god

“The first to die was Protesilaus
A focused man who hurried to darkness
With forty black ships leaving the land behind
Men sailed with him from those flower-lit cliffs
Where the grass gives growth to everything
Pyrasus Iton Pteleus Antron
He died in mid-air jumping to be first ashore
There was his house half-built
His wife rushed out clawing her face
Podarcus his altogether less impressive brother
Took over command but that was long ago
He’s been in the black earth now for thousands of year.”
