This Be The Verse – Philip Larkin

Wednesday, July 21st, 2004

A friend and boss just had a baby. This is what he sent out via email. I like it. 🙂

This Be The Verse

They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another’s throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don’t have any kids yourself.

–Philip Larkin (1974)

Lyrics to Therapy? – Screamager:

With a face like this
I won’t break any hearts
And thinking like that
I won’t make any friends
Screw that, forget about that
I don’t wanna hear about anything like that
Screw that, forget about that
I don’t wanna know about anything like that
I’ve got nothing to do ‘cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you
I’ve got nothing to do ‘cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you

Your beauty makes me feel alone
I look inside but no ones home
Screw that, forget about that
I don’t wanna hear about anything like that
Screw that, forget about that
I don’t wanna know about anything like that
I’ve got nothing to do ‘cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you
I’ve got nothing to do ‘cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you

I’ve got nothing to do ‘cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you
I’ve got nothing to do ‘cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you
I’ve got nothing to do ‘cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you
I’ve got nothing to do ‘cept
Hang around and get screwed up on you

17 Alfred Hitchcock Themed Murals in Leytonstone Tube Station

hitch01.jpg

Alfred Hitchcock was born at 517 High Road, Leytonstone, in the east of London on 13th August 1899. To mark 100 years since this event, and to commemorate the director’s link with the area, 17 mosaics have been installed in the entrance corridors of Leytonstone tube station. They were made in vitreous glass tesserae, using the reverse method, by Greenwich Mural Workshop. The work required some 80,000 tiles, took seven months to complete, and the final installation took place during April 2001.

Curl – Handy tool

Friday, July 9th, 2004

I discovered a neat application called cURL today, thanks to a link on Donncha’s blog to a site that lists sites that you can download content from using Curl.

One prime example is this Japanese photographer who has created pretty bleak black and white photos centered on spirituality or the life cycle. Strong stuff. Nothing that’ll brighten your day.

Found some pretty neat David LaChapelle stuff too. Here’s one you might like:

Cross of Iron

Wednesday, July 7th, 2004

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron. – Dwight Eisenhower
