"Dayton, Ohio is the home of the Wright brothers, the Dayton Peace Accords and Guided by Voices, the greatest rock-and-roll band in the modern era."
Yes, that’s White House press secretary Jay Carney on Guided by Voices, his most favorite band ever (via nprmusic)
On the one hand, this seems like weird timing for a story about Jay Carney’s love of Guided by Voices. On the other hand, “Doughnut for a Snowman” is a great song.
It’s sweet how hard he nerds out for GBV. And Dayton.
In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.
- Pride and Prejudice, 1813, Chapter 34
“Everyone on the Internet isn’t having as much fun as you think.”
“I guess they’re just cropping out the sadness.”
And they say communication save relations, I can tell /
But I can never right my wrongs unless I write them down for real /
"I loved you at your darkest."
— Romans 5:8 (via tendmysheep)
"I have desired to go
Where springs not fail
To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail
And a few lilies blow.
And I have asked to be
Where no storms come,
Where the green swell is in the havens dumb,
And out of the swing of the sea."
— Heaven-Haven, Gerard Manley Hopkins
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. (King James)"
— Proverbs 31:8, 2 versions
