self pity

I never saw a wild thing
sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself.

bitches and hoes

You can’t spend two decades referring to other men’s daughters as bitches and hoes, and then somehow decide that your own daughter is going to be exempt from the game. You, my brother, have given nearly every inch of your creative productivity toward murdering your daughter’s self and public image before she was even born. In other words, you brought Blue Ivy Carter into a world where most of your biggest fans will look at her and refer to her not as daddy’s little princess, but instead as a dirty little bitch. In fact, they will even get paid for it.”

Dr. Boyce Watkins regarding Jay-Z’s decision to stop using the word “bitch” after the birth of his daughter.


oh, just a bit of cinematic culture:

fauna ecstasy


nightmare: coffin

chandeliers sway in the wind
right off the ceiling
through the floor they break
into the other room
a room in which a woman
is coughing
right into her coffin
into her grave
right under the ground
filled up with earth
rotting away

gloomy gloomy
for me.

Myths & Dreams

Bill Moyers: Why is a myth different from a dream?

Joseph Campbell: Oh, because a dream is a personal experience of that deep, dark ground that is the support of our conscious lives, and a myth is the society’s dream. The myth is the public dream and the dream is the private myth. If your private myth, your dream, happens to coincide with that of the society, you are in good accord with your group. If it isn’t, you’ve got an adventure in the dark forest ahead of you.

Bill Moyers: So if my priavte dreams are in accord with the public mythology, I’m more likely to live healthily in that society. But if my private dreams are out of step with the public -

Joseph Campbell: - you’ll be in trouble. If you’re forced to live in that system, you’ll be a neurotic.

Bill Moyers: But aren’t there visionaries and even leaders and heroes close to the edge of neuroticism?

Joseph Campbell: Yes, there are.

Bill Moyers: How do you explain that?

Joseph Campbell: They’ve moved out of the society that would have protected them, and into the dark forest, into the world of fire, of original experience. Original experience has not been interpreted for you, and so you’ve got to work out your life for yourself. Either you can take it or you can’t. You don’t have to go far off from the interpreted path to find yourself in very difficult situations. The courage to face the trials and to bring a whole new body of possibilities into the field of interpreted experience for other people to experience - that is the hero’s deed.
