Gillian Welch - “Revelator”

Time (The Revelator), 2001

leaving the valley, fucking out of sight
think I’ll go back to Cali where I can sleep out every night
and watch the waves and move the faders
time’s the revelator
the revelator
queen of fakes and imitators
time’s the revelator

#queen of fakes and imitators #gillian welch #the revelator #music #lord almighty do i owe destronomics for introducing me to this song

"I just gravitate towards flawed, conflicted, troubled people."

The Little Mermaid  {Den lille havfrue}

”Why have not we an immortal soul?” asked the little mermaid mournfully. “I would give gladly all the hundreds of years that I have to live, to be a human being only for one day, and to have the hope of knowing the happiness of that glorious world above the stars.” “You must not think of that,” said the old woman; “we feel ourselves to be much happier and much better off than human beings.” “So I shall die,” said the little mermaid, “and as the foam of the sea I shall be driven about never again to hear the music of the waves, or to see the pretty flowers nor the red sun. ”

happy mothers day

I sometimes wonder what would’ve happened if I’d bought that vase and made a home for it. Would that have changed things? Would I have been happy? Who can say. I do know this: Even now, after all the pain and death and heartbreak that followed, I still would make the same choice.

The only rules that really matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can’t do. For instance, you can accept that your father was a pirate and a good man or you can’t. But pirate is in your blood, boy, so you’ll have to square with that some day. And me, for example, I can let you drown, but I can’t bring this ship into Tortuga all by me onesies, savvy? So, can you sail under the command of a pirate, or can you not?

You may bury my body
down by the highway side
So my old evil spirit
Can catch a Greyhound bus and ride

"You want to know what it was like?
It was like my whole life had a fever.
Whole acres of me were on fire.
The sun talked dirty in my ear all night.
I couldn’t drive past a wheatfield without doing it violence.
I couldn’t even look at a bridge.
I used to go out in the brush sometimes,
So far out there no one could hear me,
And just burn.
I felt all right then.
I couldn’t hurt anyone else.
I was just a pillar of fire.
It wasn’t the burning so much as the loneliness.
It wasn’t the loneliness so much as the fear of being alone.
Christ look at you pouring from the rocks.
You’re so cold you’re boiling over.
You’ve got stars in your hair.
I don’t want to be around you.
I don’t want to drink you in.
I want to walk into the heart of you
And never walk back out."
- Nico Alvarado, ”Tim Riggins Speaks of Waterfalls”  (via petrichour)
