1. "In order to understand, it is immensely important for the person who understands to be located outside the object of his or her creative understanding—in time, in space, in culture. For one cannot even really see one’s own exterior and comprehend it as a whole, and no mirrors or photographs can help; our real exterior can be seen and understood only by other people, because they are located outside us in space, and because they are others."
    — Mikhail Bakhtin, Speech Genres and Other Late Essays (via heteroglossia)

    “Where am I to find you? If I find you beyond my memory, it means that I have no memory of you. How, then, am I to find you, if I have no memory of you?”

    I read Neil Gaiman’s “Ocean at the End of the Lane” this summer, and It completely got me back into reading. 

    This is my interpretation of one of the “Hunger Birds,” the willfully aggressiveworld devouring varmints. When something is out of hand, or out of place, they devour.

    They are the Cleaners. 

    The image of them was so clear to me, that I couldn’t help but try to put it on paper. 

    I also read that Focus Features will be adapting this story into a film that will be produced by Tom hanks and directed by Joe Wright. I would very much love to be a part of that. 

     

    This is so beautiful, and so much like the Hunger Birds inside of my head.

  15. raybolger: Some of the creations of one of the most fascinating and bizarre directors out there, David Lynch. I really tried to bring all the stuff he’s made on here(but I did leave out advertisements/interviews he’s done and stuff he’s made that I just couldn’t find the thing for), if I forgot any that you think should be on here, feel free to add links to the work and so on.
    Have a fun day at the movies!
