    12. What are your five favorite songs right now?

     Dum Dum Girls, “Lost Boys and Girls Club”; Goldfrapp, “Thea”; Republica, “Don’t You Ever”; Sugababes, “Freak Like Me”; EMA, “Neuromancer”.

    78. Favorite ice cream flavor?

    Mint cookie, which is like mint chip but better. (If adulthood’s so fucking dead, why hasn’t anyone invented mint cookie dough ice cream yet? Thin Mint ice cream doesn’t count.)

    95. Last movie you watched?

    It’s been so long I barely remember. I have a stack of DVDs I keep meaning to get around to, but I keep meaning to get around to a lot of things. I’m not exactly proud of this. 

    144. Dark, milk or white chocolate?

    Good dark chocolate > good milk chocolate > OK milk chocolate > OK dark chocolate > nothing else deserves to be in this comparison.

    hey remember when I reblogged that questions thing I didn’t forget about it

    1, 42, 108, 113, 146. Also, that 7-11 has the best lemonade. I dream about it! — softerthansound

    I pretty much have to have a place close to me that will sell me coffee at 2 a.m. because I totally know how to schedule. (One apartment ago that was Othello’s. I still miss that place.)

    Anyway, in response to this, which still has a pile of other potential questions in case people want to chime in:

    1. Who was the last person you held hands with?

    Literal answer: A friend of mine designed a card game where all the players are shipwrecked. We were playing last night. One of the cards makes you hold hands with another player; you both lose health if either of you let go. I let go immediately because I can be overly ruthless sometimes.

    Answer-in-the-spirit-of-the-thing: Probably someone I went out with, some time ago. (For once I’m not being deliberately coy; it’s been long enough that I actually don’t remember.) 

    42. If you’re being extremely quiet, what does that mean?

    My overdeveloped sense of privacy is kicking in. 

    108. What should you be doing?

    Like, existentially? Or just today? Miraculously I have accomplished everything super-super-pressing that I should’ve done today. I even made a semi-presentable dinner (beef with caramelized bok choy — cooked in the wrong order, probably, and not fully caramelized, but it’s still food, and I guess “presentable” is a weird word to use while making dinner for yourself that isn’t going up on Instagram). I should probably take a shower. Or pitch. Or do the dishes. Or work on my IF project some more instead of pretending slapping an EMA quotation onto the intro is writing. 

    113. What was your childhood nickname?

    I don’t really do nicknames or pet names or any of that, but my best friend from middle school used to call me Crys (short for a screen name, not as in “cries.”)

    146. Was today a good day?

    I woke up at a decent hour, walked to the bakery and bought a croissant (and didn’t die of heat for the first time in months), and shortly I am going to go out and wear fall clothes and continue to not die of heat. Better than par, I’d say.

    »american psycho« by mimi cabell and jason huff

    this book was made by sending the entire text of bret easton ellis’ american psycho between two gmail accounts page by page. we saved the relational ads for each page and added them back into the text as footnotes. in total, we collected over 800 relevant ads for the book. the constellations of footnoted ads throughout these pages retell the story of american psycho in absence of the original text. this retelling reveals gmail’s unpredictable insensitivity to violence, racism, and sex. it serves as a blurry portrait of an algorithm that exists in our everyday communication simultaneously forming a new portrait of the lead character, patrick bateman.

  5. The truth is, we all have these little neuromancers now. Maybe
    you can’t see yours as easily as I could see mine. But I can
    guarantee you that unless you have been taking great pains to
    cover your tracks, you have left a little trail of breadcrumbs that
    someone has access to. Credit card purchases, geo-tagging,
    emotional keywords in status updates. There is somewhere out
    there (in there?) an outline of your life; what you like to eat,
    where you like to go, who you spend your time with.
    — EMA (The whole thing’s well worth reading, obviously; she and Kristin Hersh might be my top two writer-musicians at this point.)

    katherinestasaph replied to your post: whatfreshheckisthis said:Top 5 To…

    wait what ARE your top 5 abstract memorial sculptures

    whatfreshheckisthis replied to your post: whatfreshheckisthis said:Top 5 To…

    I second Katherine’s question! Tell us about abstract memorial sculptures! (How many are Maya Lin?)

    wait fuck I don’t actually know enough about abstract memorial sculptures to make a top 5 list

    (Maya Lin is totes rad tho)

    let me restrict this to a narrower category so it’s a bit more manageable. here is a top 5 list of Yugoslav war memorials:

    #1: Kadinjača, Serbia


    #2: Mrakovica, Bosnia & Herzegovina


    #3: Tjentište, Bosnia & Herzegovina


    #4: Petrova Gora, Croatia


    #5: Podgarić, Croatia


    honorable mention goes to the monument in Makljen, which used to look like this


    but now looks like this
