Vintage advice, never old.

(Reblogged from secretempires)
If we can depend upon any principle which we learn from philosophy, this, I think, may be considered as certain and undoubted, that there is nothing, in itself, valuable or despicable, desirable or hateful, beautiful or deformed; but that these attributes arise from the particular constitution and fabric of human sentiment and affection.
David Hume in The Sceptic
the shots didn’t arouse
the neighbors.
Charles Bukowski in hell is a lonely place

on the rare occasion that i would rather be a stereotypical ectomorph than the endomorph I am, but not the mesomorphs i typically admire, i think it’s due in part to this email campaign from thomas pink with model matt benstead - i typically prefer the look of matt scott, Edinburgh and Scotland rugby

seeing all of these at once makes me want to order a pizza

I have a lot of ideas in my head. And for the most part, that’s where they used to stay.
In my head. Where other people couldn’t see them, interact with them or build upon them. Where they were safe and untested and uncriticized. All mine.
Sure, I’ve created some. Some might say I’ve created plenty. But that’s only because they can’t see what I’m not creating. For example, this very post sat dormant for at least a month while I pondered, waited and nitpicked at it.
Because the riskiest, most dangerous and potentially most interesting ideas are the easiest to hold back. I would pin them down like butterflies on a mat, like art at a museum. They were in spreadsheets, in notebooks, on scrap paper around my desk.
And while it might feel creative to think of these ideas, they were dying a lonely death when I wasn’t doing anything with them. They didn’t get their chance to add anything to the world. To affect someone. To spark something.
I lost out, too, with this arrangement. I didn’t push myself to think deeper and harder. I lost out on the feedback or insight or even criticism of others. I missed the chance to discover uncharted territory within myself. I stopped before I could start.
It wasn’t the best life I could give my ideas—or myself.
So I decided to change. To find a way forward, I cataloged all the things that had ever stopped me from creating so I could shoot them down, one-by-one. It turned out to be a helpful exercise, so I thought I’d share. 
Do any of these reasons for not creating something sound familiar to you?

because youre not the boss of me, ima do this how i do which is maximum lame

40 tracks on shuffle? meh

i have two libraries that i still need to merge because work - need new old hds for the 3 and 4 bays - would dig a ssd but life

the 06 macpro purchased in east lansing with a library from 06 to 10 and 11 to now

the 10 mbp 15-inch, Mid 2010 purchased in singapore with a library from 10 to now

the 13 shuffle from both the older and newer machines’ playlists are oddly fitting with only a few exceptions like new order, depeche mode, pet shop boys, the b52s. and the smiths who dominated the time before my migration from cassette to cd - i have (aging) vinyl of that stuff- those are with the screen caps - although i guess electronic kinda counts for some of those and erasure for others

what do they put in that algorithm - seems more than purely random but then again books
