“It’s the story of what it means to live in a cultural climate that stifles almost every creative impulse, and why it so often seems we should stop trying.”

Dan Piepenbring on Cory Arcangel’s new book, Working on My Novel, a compilation of tweets from people who are putatively at work on novels.

threelisabeth:

i feel like the thing that’s really changed me the most as a person in recent years is learning how to do two things: the first is, when stating with cutting accuracy the Way Something Is, to then say “and?” and realize that the ability to describe something is neither superiority nor criticism; the other thing is to say something that might sound like it’s pointing out a fault and then immediately follow it with “I love it.” “That song sounds like it was recorded underwater by cats with amnesia and then produced by a robot who had only ever been exposed to the music of T-Pain. I love it.”

"Pure love for another person, and what people call romantic love, are two different things. Pure love doesn’t manipulate the relationship to one’s advantage, but romantic love is different. Romantic love contains other elements—the desire to be loved by the other person, for instance. If purely loving another was enough, you wouldn’t suffer because of unrequited love. As long as the other person was happy, there wouldn’t be any need to suffer because you weren’t being loved in return. What makes people suffer is the desire to be loved by another person. So I decided that romantic love and pure love for a person are not the same. And that by following this you could lessen the pain of unrequited love."
