They were called Alice's Posies. The tradition was, that a certain Alice Pynchon had flung up the seeds, in sport, and that the dust of the street and the decay of the roof gradually formed a kind of soil for them, out of which they grew, when Alice had long been in her grave. However the flowers might have come there, it was both sad and sweet to observe how Nature adopted to herself this desolate, decaying, gusty, rusty old house of the Pyncheon family; and how the ever-returning Summer did her best to gladden it with tender beauty, and grew melancholy in the effort.


i hated the scarlet letter in high school but after getting arrested, i read it again and loved it

Chapter II:

"...if we look through all the heroic fortunes of. mankind, we shall find this same entanglement of something mean and trivial with whatever is noblest in joy or sorrow. LIFE IS MADE UP OF MARBLE AND MUD."

FUCK YES

What's your deal RBG? You seem super unhinged lately... Just chill out...

nah he just thinks others should be impressed (cause he's naive) so he talks about like it is and you're a fool. lots of people like gang of four, me first and gimme gimmes, the clash, joy division, and whatever mainstream "post-punk" he is into. just not everyone needs their back patted for it.

you're not a true punk until you can appreciate the carpenters. punk isn't a set of notes. it's a state of mind.

I just talk about the things I like the same as everyone else and you assume some level of pretension even when rep'ing Devo

well I suppose the things I don't like as well

I do not agree with fuzzy's opinion of me either

The Ocean (Hawthorne)

The ocean has its silent caves,
Deep, quiet and alone;
Though there be fury on the waves,
Beneath them there is none.
. The awful spirits of the deep
Hold their communion there;
And there are those for whom we we
The young, the bright, the fair.

Calmly the wearied seamen rest
Beneath their own blue sea.
The ocean solitudes are blest,
For there is purity.
The earth has guilt, the earth has care
Unquiet are its graves; But peaceful sleep is ever there, Beneath the dark blue waves.

I must say tho that "spy the fragile heart so cursed as he walks across this earth" is visceral in its senescitude.

The only thing I really agree with rbg's summarisation of elph is that he wears his taste in music like a uniform. Everything else just sounds like what you'd hear at a roast session, but more spiteful.

Of all things to jump down someone's throat about this seems pretty ott.
