I. love. the. Anaconda. video. but the writeups I’ve been seeing keep referring to Drake as a co-star, which I think misses a big part of the point.

The reason this video rules is because Drake is an extra. Drake is a prop. Drake is a bro in the comfy-casual clothes that he rolled up to the set in, who has no lines or purpose other than the be ground upon, and whose face is obscured by shadows most of the time.

This is not a continuation of the Drake/Nicki/Rih media narrative. This is a dank-as-fuck feminist power play. This is, “Drake is whatever to me.” And this is a man who, if he isn’t at the top of his game, is close to it. A huge celebrity. And here is Nicki looking fucking amazing, tormenting him into a boner, then swatting his hand away and walking out of frame.

Your anaconda don’t want none unless she got buns, hun? Maybe she doesn’t want your anaconda. Maybe she’ll do whatever the fuck she wants with her buns, and it doesn’t matter what you think or feel.

"I’m pretty mad that “smile” is mucking up my game with dudes I would actually want to talk to."

This is my actual point here, but it’s mostly covered in outrage. (via meredithhaggerty)

"Some people make us feel more human and some people make us feel less human and that is a fact as much as gravity is a fact and maybe there are ways to prove it, but the proof of it matters less that the existence of it—how a stranger can show up and look at you and make you make more sense to yourself and the world, even if that sense is extremely fragile and only comes around occasionally and is prone to wander or fade—what matters is that sometimes sense is made between two people and I don’t know if it’s random or there is any kind of order to it, what combinations of people work the best and why and how do we find these people and how do we keep these people around, and I don’t know if it’s chaos or not chaos but it feels like chaos to me so I suppose it is."

Catherine Lacey’s Nobody Is Ever Missing is filled with sentences as beautiful as this one. Typing it out was exhausting but also wonderful because I got to revisit it. (via bobbyfinger)

Things That Happen When I Am Not Home


When I’m not home I’ll walk 3km in the rain to get a good lunch.  The bread makes it worth it, you can’t get bread like this back home. We taint everything with sugar.  

I wouldn’t walk this far in the rain at home, or in the sun for that matter.  I would get in my car, pop over to the restaurant just a few blocks away, and park.  I do a lot of things I would never do at home. 

Last time I was here I propositioned the guy behind the ice cream counter to get a beer when he was closed for the night.  Oh that white night. Beer; to car make out; to being cased after by him when we parted ways and I dropped my scarf——being away becomes the thing of movies.  Things just happen when I am away from home.  

I lived another movie once, but I can’t talk about that here.  Its still the story to be savored over wine with pause. Of course it happened when I was away from home. 

When I am away from home I will talk to strangers at the bar, I will either say more or say less than I usually would.  

All this when I am away from home.

"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this."
