Everything will always look and feel similar, admit it, accept it, don't fight it.

I hate to admit it but I don't think any of us can afford to feel possessive of ideas anymore. It's unproductive and makes us waste too much time on unnecessary anger and jealousy. I used to get so riled up over "intellectual theft" which sometimes could be as simple as coincidental (or not!!) aesthetic/conceptual similarities within a small group of people. The truth is, when I see someone using my ideas in a different context I get worried that they will do a better job at it than I ever can. That my ideas will become theirs. And vice versa - everyone's constantly tiptoeing around each other's work, like we're all so brilliant and original, as if! "Authenticity" is sort of a joke. We're bound to steal from others if we work in close proximity to each other. I've done it, most everyone I know has done it. There is one catch though: you should at least try to make it "your own" and be able to back it up. Otherwise you're just a thief. Which is OK, if that's what you're into.
I'm going to completely ignore the news, listen to some Tchaikovsky, run up the mountain and back, paint.
Please stop telling me to vote today, voting only feels right if you have someone to vote for. Also, I find millions of people cheering about one person's death like it's some sort of a milestone awful and disturbing. That being said, you should check out Sohaib Athar's twitter (link). So far it's the only report that I feel is significant. To imagine a situation like that - and how ubiquitous it is -you hear commotion in the middle of the night and pass it off as probably nothing serious while in reality it is a terrible and sneaky violence and it's occurring right next door: that really scares me. FYI: the other night in my dream Osama wrote me a love poem and now he's dead. I should have transcribed it and sold it on ebay.

Cut my hair for the summer. Moving back to the island. Other than that nothing new.
I want to have a baby.

Frankie Lane, he was singing Jezebel
I pinned an Iron Cross to my lapel
I walked up to the tallest and the blondest girl
I said, Look, you don't know me now but very soon you will
So won't you let me see
I said "won't you let me see"
I said "won't you let me see
Your naked body?"

Just dance me to the dark side of the gym
Chances are I'll let you do most anything
I know you're hungry, I can hear it in your voice
And there are many parts of me to touch, you have your choice
Ah but no you cannot see
She said "no you cannot see"
She said "no you cannot see
My naked body"

So We're dancing close, the band is playing Stardust
Balloons and paper streamers floating down on us
She says, You've got a minute left to fall in love
In solemn moments such as this I have put my trust
And all my faith to see
I said all my faith to see
I said all my faith to see
Her naked body
