I’ve had one hours sleep, I have literally just finished this, I have one more to do, dear god help my ailing body as it tries desperately to shut me down from the inside haha. I hope you enjoy this :) two very interesting takes on an idea I consider very important in Life. Written for my life & existence module I apologise for the many grammar mistakes, I really cant be arsed to...
Fear and Fuck Yeas
I actually enjoy the fear that I feel thinking that my essays will be shit unless I read every book ever written by the philosopher, twice. Atleast I know I have the motivation to actually achieve and will not settle for something shit when I know I could do better After years of being nonchalant about work, I’m finally here, I finally actually care I honestly can’t wait to see how I...
checklist 1. Stop thinking about how you’re going to die 2. Start thinking about how, before you were born, things still existed. Your history stretches farther back than anything you could know. x
In Reality, it is only my body that lives and sleeps in the city. My mind does not belong here. I no longer know what I am, Man or Beast? adapted from Plato - Theatetus. X
As we all do.
we were the death-holding, hand-squeezing never-let-go’s. The distance made palpable by the earthquake kisses, the horror of departure bringing us further into each others arms which clasped the skin as tight as steel. I tasted chaos, uncertainty and old age spent remembering regrets in woven chairs, I was scared. I think you felt it to. We lingered on the edge of the abyss for what seemed...
If we’re ever going to comprehend the mind of a God, should we not start by deciphering ourselves. it’s best to view the work in action as we can’t observe the creator. X
http://www.myspace.com/hopelessmelbourne Hopeless are a melodic hardcore band from Melbourne Australia. They literally look like More Than Life & Dead Swans had children appearance wise but then if you’re into melodic hardcore or negi-hc in general (and i am in no way excluding myself from this haha) you tend to rock the same look; vans eras, american apparel hoodies, some deathwish inc...
The Triumph Of Death.

it is my fate to be a fly-swat
of late i have found myself becoming more disconnected from things. I feel as if i am slowly losing myself in the background i have found a seat from which i have ready access to a million things i love, and am fully dissolving under the weight of their innocuous beauty As a Philosophy student and all round avid lover of any kind of knowledge, I have literally been taught not to have opinions...
I'm innocent (minus the fights)
Here’s an interesting take on one of my favourite songs There’s A Black Hole In The Shadow Of The Pru by Give Up The host / American Nightmare covered by Trunks & Tales good to see this song still is still remembered despite the many years since it was written and the original Everyone I ever loved Went down in history… The blue eyes came The brown eyes left… And the...
probably the best moment I’ve ever witnessed at Leeds Festival. when this women got her tits out at New Found Glory last year the whole crowd replaced the suspected common cheer of agreement with “EUURGHHHHHHHHHHHH” that kids face pretty much sums it up, laughing from my very soul. x
fight apathy....or, don't
Maybe Liam Lynch should rename it “my United Kingdom of whatever” because the amount of people i’ve spoken to who really don’t care about the general election (myself included, ashamedly) is either terrifying or marvellous. X
Albert Camus - The Myth of Sisyphus
I wrote this about half an hour at 12am when I was asked to do a Book Review for Bangor Universities Newspaper. Stop, please just stop. Stop what you are doing and listen. Put down your pen, your ipod, this newspaper infact and listen to me. There is no hope for you, not at all. Rather on the contrary I am afraid, you are..thats right…YOU are going to die. The world will stay silent,...
