The Falling Man is a photograph taken by Associated Press photographer Richard Drew, of a man falling from the North Tower of the World Trade Center during the September 11 attacks in New York City. The subject of the image—whose identity remains uncertain but is speculated to be that of Jonathan Briley — was one of the people trapped on the upper floors of the skyscraper who apparently either fell as they searched for safety or jumped to escape the fire and smoke. At least 200 people fell or jumped to their deaths that day.
Regarding the social and cultural significance of The Falling Man, theologian Mark D. Thompson says that “perhaps the most powerful image of despair at the beginning of the twenty-first century is not found in art, or literature, or even popular music. It is found in a single photograph.”

“There are some things about myself I can’t explain to anyone. There are some things I don’t understand at all. I can’t tell what I think about things or what I’m after. I don’t know what my strengths are or what I’m supposed to do about them. But if I start thinking about these things in too much detail the whole thing gets scary. And if I get scared I can only think about myself. I become really self-centered, and without meaning to, I hurt people. So I’m not such a wonderful human being.”

Nymphomaniac: Vol. II (2013)

Just watched this movie for the first time, and I’m completely blown away.. Charlotte Gainsbourg is such a force, she gives her entire being in this performance. So many parts I connected with, so moving. I feel like I’m going to have to watch all of Lars von Trier’s movies now

"Human beings do not grow in perfect symmetry. They oscillate, expand, contract, back track, arrest themselves, retrogress, mobilize, atrophy in part, proceed erratically according to experience and traumas. Some aspects of the personality mature, others do not. Some live in the past, some in the present. Some people are futuristic characters, some are cubistic, some are hard-edged, some geometric, some abstract, some impressionistic, some surrealistic! Some of their insights remain relative, and we can no longer think of a character as good or bad, but a combination of characteristics which vary according to relationship and the point in time. We know now that we are composites in reality, collages of our fathers and mothers, of what we read, of television influences and films, of friends and associates, and we know we often play roles quite removed from our genuine selves."
Anaïs Nin, from The Novel of the Future. (via meganmcisaac)

during my worst times
 on the park benches
 in the jails
 or living with
 whores
 I always had this certain
 contentment-
 I wouldn’t call it
 happiness-
 it was more of an inner
 balance 
 that settled for
 whatever was occuring
 and it helped in the
 factories
 and when relationships 
 went wrong
 with the 
 girls. 
 it helped 
 through the
 wars and the
 hangovers
 the backalley fights
 the 
 hospitals. 
 to awaken in a cheap room
 in a strange city and
 pull up the shade-
 this was the craziest kind of
 contentment
 and to walk across the floor
 to an old dresser with a 
 cracked mirror- 
 see myself, ugly,
 grinning at it all. 
 what matters most is
 how well you 
 walk through the
 fire.

I’ve watched the rise and fall of my own Rome

Everything turns to shit eventually
You’re left desperately holding on to the good memories
That’s how some people get by
Like me

I remember
The good days of my childhood
The love and security of family
The closeness we shared
It wasn’t perfect but it existed, it was there
And now all that’s left is a hollow space
Of what was

I remember
Feeling like I finally found my tribe
A true family, a group so connected
We were all strange and beautiful and creative and talented
We were going places, we were going to conquer the world
Our own way, through our own artistic expression
We were so inspired by each other
Made the best music, art, photography
Had the most life changing experiences

But everything comes to an end
The golden years are over
And now it’s all wasted and spoilt
I’m always thinking “we are too young to feel this cynical, we have lived so little to be this jaded”

I’ve seen the brightest and most special
Become lost,

Not in the wandering way which has many possibilities of fulfillment
But in the stuck stand still
Kinda lost in the oh my god you are so far from where you need to be, where you truly belong

But you’re not even looking

I’ve also witnessed them use people as distractions
Whether trash talking, baby making, settling coupling,
It’s all the same
Eating up their time and pushing their dreams away
Further and further
As they drift into the mundane

But I remember
I remember the insatiable thirst, the never ending hunger


To have something to say
And want to say it
For I still feel it
Thank god I still feel it
As lost and far away as I am sometimes
I’m always able to keep my eyes on the prize
