My reality is that of films, fables, theatre and plans to conquer the world.

Arcade Fire's Funeral Turns 10 ↘

Funeral is the sound of desperately finite people channeling infinite sadness, mustering every last ounce of passion and earnestly blasting it to the far reaches of the universe. Whatever you’re dealing with, this music will sweep you up and carry you away with it. Somehow, it converts that pain and confusion into reverie. […]
It’s almost unbelievable that these dweebs in formal dresses and silkscreened blazers were able to achieve something so universal. But they did, and for 10 years now we’ve been trembling in its wake.

Momenti che segnano la giornata #104

Dire per una settimana: “Weeee questo è il primo anno che a Settembre non devo ricominciare la scuola!”

Due giorni dopo, iscriversi ad un altro corso universitario.

"One of my oldest crusades is against the distinction between thought and feeling, which is really the basis of all anti-intellectual views: the heart and the head, thinking and feeling, fantasy and judgment… . I have the impression that thinking is a form of feeling and that feeling is a form of thinking."

Erika Schmidt’s "A Gentleman’s Guide to Surviving North by Northwest”:
"So you’re on the run. The bad news: you’re being pursued by both international spies and by the American police. The good news: you’re a wealthy, white, American male with a snappy tongue and a certain God’s-gift panache about you, so even with a couple of strikes against you, you’ll likely still come out smelling like a rose. Congratulations on that! Still, there are some essentials you’ll do well to remember if you want to escape with that chiseled mug intact. 
Do carry cash. You never know when your day is about to be interrupted by a potentially deadly case of mistaken identity. You’ll need to be able to buy tickets willy nilly, hail cabs, bribe bellboys, and execute all sorts of other spur-of-the-moment maneuvers. An empty wallet just won’t do, and with your pedigree, there’s no excuse for having one.
Don’t trust women. Anyone who looks like Grace Kelly but isn’t Grace Kelly and uses that many double entendres is probably not your friend. Some things are too good to be true. 
Don’t go out to the field. If someone tells you to go out to a remote field of some sort in order to get important information, don’t do it. Seriously: why would you do this? This should go unsaid. Haven’t you ever seen Seven? This never, ever ends well. Just don’t do it.
Do close the bathroom door and run the shower so your mortal enemy will think you’re occupied. Works every time.

Live Now: Watch Alt-J Perform 'This Is All Yours' ↘

If I were you I’d take an hour off immediately and watch this. I’m speechless, full of love and I probably won’t listen to anything else for a long while.
