For fourteen years my body betrayed me, The one I cannot live without must live on without me. Unread books on dusty shelves tell a story of their own. I know in time we all find peace of mind, When optionless we do what we must do, But that was barely good enough and you, You stole my heart and then you stole my tools. You stole my tools, you stole my tools. Oh, Audre.

“now, don’t think that i’m prejudiced,” this is not a good start. “…but the neighborhood is just becoming too much of a melting pot for me.” yep. there it is. i wonder if i was visibily puerto rican instead of just white with my p.r. hiding away, if that would have been said to me. or my roommate, who is visibly not white but seems to be spoken...

selfdistractive replied to your photo: travel acquisitions. some freebies! Empty Towers has to be one of the greatest records of all time I heard of them when you posted some spotify links awhile back. Blown away. I’ve been looking for the vinyl for so long. I finally found it in Peeple Watchin’s distro box after culling stores and online distros.

Two gels applied to the skin deliver hormones that knock down a man’s sperm count, acting as a male contraceptive, researchers reported June 25 at the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting.
