the child grows enormous but never grows up
William Gass on tumblr, the Internet “community”, et al.

mythologyofblue:

Our world resembles the night sky, since all those stars we see shining together, and which seem to exist in the same plane as though painted on a plate, actually bring us their light from different times — a few are thousands of light-years away, some are nearer, perhaps half a century off — and when we, often awestruck, gaze at them, we see this mottled past, and if we are wise we try to correct for and understand the differences; not always easy, since the spangle of the skies does resemble in its simultaneity and dazzling presence, Las Vegas’ seductive signs. But the stars (or the light we admire in the stars’ stead) do not constitute a community. The stars do not constitute a heavenly society. The stars stand in a vast chill of indifference and send out for no reason their wholly lonely and utterly meaningless beams.

My secret fetish is falling in love and getting married and having a family and being happy and content forever and choking girls.

John Blogkowski, a curator who almost single-handedly elevated the hyperlink’s status in the last half-century to that of a fine art, making his case in seminal writings and landmark exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, died in on Saturday in Pittsfield, Mass. He was 81.

Just remembered that all I know is only what I think I know :(

What you get in this Tumblr scene is imitators of imitators of imitators, each less skilled than the one before them
