To save one life, Mr. Tagomi had to take two. The logical, balanced mind cannot make sense of that. A kindly man like Mr. Tagomi could be driven insane by the implications of such reality.

~ Philip K. Dick, “The Man in the High Castle” (1962)

This existential 5-year-old wants time to stop.  And who doesn’t relate to this at one time or another in their lives?

This is me every time I look at Harry Styles. 

Dear Sadie and Sadie’s brother (assuming),

In 15 years, please recreate this video.

Thank you.

I think this means I’m old enough to be the cast of Expendables 3.

The old TC

nicolemarietherese:

(Looks like we’re doing this)

I interned at the front desk every Saturday-day for a year. One of my duties involved lugging the piano keyboard across the lobby to set up for musical improv. I hated it. I tried to do it when there was no one around because dragging this big case looked and felt ridiculous. Also the musical improv students were loud and kind of full of themselves. I did not want to help them.

One Saturday, as I was lugging the piano across the lobby, I heard someone say - in a voice that was equal parts superior and disinterested - “There are wheels on the other side.”

I looked up. It was one of the musical improv students. In my memory, he’s sitting cross legged and reading a comic book. He doesn’t even deign to look up. I didn’t even know his name but I think I remember telling someone he’s my nemesis.

A year later we were dating. This February was our five year anniversary.

But, seriously, there were wheels on the thing.
