"Whatever you now find weird, ugly, uncomfortable and nasty about a new medium will surely become its signature. CD distortion, the jitteriness of digital video, the crap sound of 8-bit, all of these will be cherished and emulated as soon as they can be avoided. It’s the sound of failure: so much modern art is the sound of things going out of control, of a medium pushing to its limits and breaking apart. The distorted guitar sound is the sound of something too loud for the medium supposed to carry it. The blues singer with the cracked voice is the sound of an emotional cry too powerful for the throat that releases it. The excitement of grainy film, of bleached-out black and white, is the excitement of witnessing events too momentous for the medium assigned to record them."
- Brian Eno, A Year With Swollen Appendices (via fleurlungs)

We dare you to say we don’t live in a rape culture.

Amazingly, not The Onion:

“[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”

I literally was getting ready to reblog this with a caption about how On Point “The Onion” has been lately but I get this horror instead

“Some men feel that too much responsibility for preventing sexual assault has been put on their shoulders.”

I can’t even hear what this dude’s saying but look at how ineffectually angry this bird is.

I adore barn owls

Here is a man who loves his job, and an owl who just doesn’t appreciate him. Not one little bit.
