Don.

Somehow related:

Dear Mikki,
 
Yesterday I was reminiscing and remembered your birthday . It has been many years since I wished you a Happy Birthday -so this probably seems pretty hollow but I’ll try to remember!
 
Happy Birthday & may you have many more.
 
Dad.

Note:  This arrived 10 weeks after my birthday. I have so much to say and nothing at all.

Midwest Mountain Mama: this time of year always reminds me that i'm somewhat obsessed with charles dickens:

midwestmountainmama:

and yeah, i realize he alternated somewhere between liberal white dickhead and genuinely compassionate dood—i have yet to figure out what i find so fucking intriguing about him and his work—especially because i just finished listening to great expectations on cd (yeah, that’s not the first time…

““i stressed the love situation and i still think i was right. because it’s very disturbing to speak about love. people think that either you are a little bit ethereal or that you are not aware that there are struggles and hate and violence in the world and so on. or that you are a little bit religious or something like that. love has become the modern obscenity, it’s more obscene than sex, you can talk about sex and violence and that’s ok; everybody knows that exists, but love is too strange.”

Tyree Callahan’s Chromatic Typewriter is a clever painting device created from a modified 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter whose letters and keys have been replaced by color pads. This way you can “type” a painting using colors instead of letters.
