I don’t love anyone

an excellent song by Belle and Sebastian about nihilism

 photo IMG_2546_zpsc5528ab4.jpg
the quickest way to love the world again is to hate it and everything on it very fully

 photo IMG_2543_zpsd7b9ec02.jpg
to plant yourself in opposition to all love and beauty and friendship

 photo IMG_2550_zps6396b12b.jpg
to fantasize about stomping cities underfoot and the cries of the families and lovers as they mush under your heel

 photo IMG_2551_zps4dbdd1d2.jpg
to list all the things you don’t love and to savour each one until you run out

 photo IMG_2555_zpsd81fa45d.jpg
No, I don’t love anyone

 photo IMG_2556_zpsbdd03461.jpg
Yeah if there’s one thing that I learned when I was still at school
It’s to be alone

 photo IMG_2557_zps10c874e7.jpg
I pass them by I’m not a kid, no
I don’t love anyone

 photo dfreaks_zps4585aa63.jpg
I don’t love anyone
You’re not listening even now
You’re playing with someone else

 photo DSC00115_zps7cb23c4e.jpg
and then the things you really do love begin to creep in, at first as a small exception and then as a flood of good will and feeling towards your fellow man and woman

 photo IMG_2558_zps73f21694.jpg
this is not part of “Remedies for Love” by Ovid that I am currently reading

 photo dP1010047_zps0ceaf9ab.jpg
“Remember that no man loses any other life than this which he now lives, nor lives any other than this which he now loses.”

2000 years ago this guy wrote some pretty funny and accurate shit about romance and how to extinguish it

 photo dNYmag_zpsf1014b18.jpg
For why should any worthy youth destroy
Himself, because some worthless nymph is coy?

 photo dP1010001_zps7882b7c3.jpg
To me, ye injured youths, for help repair,
Who hopeless languish for some cruel fair;
I’ll now unteach the art I taught before,
The hand that wounded shall your health restore.
One soil can herbs and pois’nous weeds disclose:
The nettle oft is neighbour to the rose.

 photo dP1010059_zps47b011ed.jpg
When flames beyond their useful bounds aspire,
‘Tis charity to quench the threat’ning fire.
Let me the wanton Paris take in hand,
Helen shall be restor’d, and Troy shall stand.

 photo dRINGRING_zpsbfdfe301.jpg
While the soft passion plays about your heart,
Before the tickling venom turns to smart,
Break then, (for then you may,) the treach’rous dart;
Tear up the seeds of the unrooted ill
While they are weak, and you have pow’r to kill.

 photo dWHOOPS_zpsc94be98e.jpg
Consider, ere to love you give the reins,
If she’s a mistress worth your future pains.

 photo -outtake1_zps2a4fd92b.jpg
E’en truth and your own judgment you must strain,
Those blemishes you cannot find, to feign:
Call her blackmoor, if she’s but lovely brown;
Monster, if plump; if slender, skeleton.
Censure her free discourse as confidence;
Her silence, want of breeding and good sense.

 photo -autolevels_zps51fd50cb.jpg
Discover her blind side, and put her still
Upon the task which she performs but ill;
To dance, if she has neither shape nor air;
Court her to sing, if she wants voice and ear;
If talking misbecomes her, make her talk;
If walking, then in malice make her walk.
Commend her skill when on the lute she plays,
Till vanity her want of skill betrays.
Take care, if her large breasts offend your eyes,
No dress does that deformity disguise.
Ply her with merry tales of what you will,
To keep her laughing, if her teeth be ill.

 photo dashicle_zps8674d2ae.jpg
But one effectual method you may take,-
Enter her chamber ere she’s well awake:
Her beauty’s art, gems, gold, and rich attire,
Make up the pageant you so much admire:
In all that specious figure which you see,
The least, least part of her own self is she;
In vain for her you love, amidst such cost,
You search; the mistress in the dress is lost.
Take her disrob’d, her real self surprise,
I’ll trust you then for cure, to your own eyes.

 photo dproof_zps4d611b96.jpg
ugh badly translated couplets are torture let’s try prose:

 photo dIMG_0150_1_zps325c7268.jpg
“I blush to say it, yet I will say it; when you’re about the act of love with your mistress, take her in the posture that becomes her least. That will be easily accomplished. Rare is the woman who tells herself the truth. They deem themselves beautiful in every aspect. I bid you, too, fling open wide the windows of her room, and in the broad light of day, observe the blemishes of her body. ”

 photo BARR_zps278dc156.jpg
“But when you have attained the goal of pleasure; when you are o’erwearied both in body and in spirit; when your heart is heavy; when you are wishing you had never touched a woman, and deem it will be long ere you embrace another–then note in the tablets of your brain all the defects that you observe in her, and long let your gaze linger on her imperfections.”

 photo 07-05-06_2355_zps51a0c27c.jpg
Of course there was a young man who hid in the lavaratory to watch his gril excrete. heaven forbid that i should give such advice: it might work but i feel it woudl indeed be going too far

 photo dsummer200652_zps926a5234.jpg
“My recommnedation is to have at least two girlfriends if you can manage more your position is even stronger. Great rivers become small ones when split into several channels, and you can put out a fire simply by separating the burning logs.”

 photo dIMG_0050-1_zpsa12028d2.jpg
“Briefly, the way to get over any love is to replace it by another, you can quote Agamemnon as your authority for taking a second mistress and organizing that ‘two-way traffic in your heart’. ”

 photo -hijinks_zpsc63c0dd5.jpg
“Indeed do try to behave coldly towards the woman you love, even when you feel as though you are being roasted alive. Pretend you are cured. If you feel pain, do not let her see it, if you want to cry burst out laughing instead. Pretend to have come to your senses and you will soon find yourself living the part.”

 photo dmooooo_zpsae0cb5af.jpg
“I have often pretended to sleep at parties as an excuse for not drinking more and then really dropped off by mistake. I even remember a guy who for his own reasons faked loving this lady and then found himself actually in love with her! Which is the opposite of our goal today.”

 photo ekathy7_zpsc6b80595.jpg
“If you arrive at the girl’s house and it is locked, just accept it. Do not lie on the doorstep all night.”

 photo 10-31-06_2244_zps439633f3.jpg
“Let us assume you are rather soft, you simply cannot get away, you are tied hand and foot, and cruel Cupid is standing on your neck. Then stop struggling and abandon yourself to the wind and waves: with a raging thirst like that, drink all the water you want. Only drink even more water than you want, drink until you are full to the teeth, with water dripping from your mouth.”

 photo DSC00248_zps5a23a036.jpg
“Go and sleep with the girl as often as you like, let her monopolize your time, sleep with her until you are sick of it, until your love has died of surfeit and you will never set foot in her house again.”

 photo DSC00318_zps5726c6f9.jpg
“Loneliness is bad for lovers, beware of lonely places. It is no good running away- you are safer with people around you. By yourself you will feel wreched and the girl you left behind will appear all the more vividly to you. For that reason night is even more depressing than day because you have company to relive your gloom.”

 photo dmoo_zpsdcfb28fe.jpg
“Do not keep your door locked and your face to the wall.”

 photo zleo_zpsd0aba3ea.jpg
“Do not keep explaining why you have stopped loving her and complaining; if you keep saying ‘it’s over’ you are virtually admitting that it is not.”

 photo emartpatrickchair_zpsb4fabd3f.jpg
“Do not sue her over the presents you have given her but let her keep them.”

 photo DSC00468_zpsd435826f.jpg
“Certain places can also be bad for you, you must avoid the ones where you have slept together, thinking ‘this is the bed that we had such a wonderful time on.'”

 photo dwwUntitled-1_zps5ef5e113.jpg
“And never read love poetry! indeed I am censoring the very thing I am good at.”

 photo dUntitled-14_zps4cb00b8f.jpg
“You must also imagine that you have no rival and that she goes to bed by herself, for to know she beds another man will inflame your passions.”

 photo dwwUntitled-3_zps1e5ba173.jpg
“Lastly, don’t eat onions and do not eat arugula. You must eat only antaphrodisiacs and plenty of rue to improve your eyesight.”

 photo dwrUntitled-1_zps09306f34.jpg
“Wine stimulates sexual desire unless taken in such quantities that it inhibits all sensation and you pass out. It is like wind on a bonfire, a gentle breeze burns it brighter but a gale will extinguish it.”
(which has a funny resonance with the previous La Rochefoucauld quote, no?)

 photo -playin_zpsc60c9579.jpg
I havent, obviously, read the other half of the book that is “Techniques of Love” as I have no interest, but can imagine it to be the reverse: eat plenty of onions and drink in moderation!

Gonna try that out tonight.

so you might have noticed that these photos do not seem so contemporary perhaps
either in their content or in their pixel width

“Man was matter, that was Snowden’s secret. Drop him out a window, and he’ll fall. Set fire to him and he’ll burn. Bury him and he’ll rot, like other kinds of garbage. The spirit gone, man is garbage. That was Snowden’s secret. Ripeness was all.”

“The point is there ain’t no point.”

“I was drawn to all the wrong things: I liked to drink, I was lazy, I didn’t have a god, politics, ideas, ideals. I was settled into nothingness; a kind of non-being, and I accepted it. I didn’t make for an interesting person. I didn’t want to be interesting, it was too hard. What I really wanted was only a soft, hazy space to live in, and to be left alone. On the other hand, when I got drunk I screamed, went crazy, got all out of hand. One kind of behavior didn’t fit the other. I didn’t care.”

“I told myself: ‘I am surrounded by unknown things.’ I imagined man without ears, suspecting the existence of sound as we suspect so many hidden mysteries, man noting acoustic phenomena whose nature and provenance he cannot determine. And I grew afraid of everything around me – afraid of the air, afraid of the night. From the moment we can know almost nothing, and from the moment that everything is limitless, what remains? Does emptiness actually not exist? What does exist in this apparent emptiness?”

“There is no other world. Nor even this one. What, then, is there? The inner smile provoked in us by the patent nonexistence of both.”

 photo DSC01250_zpsf13be137.jpg
“Though nihilism has been relentlessly criticized for overemphasizing the dark side of human experience, it might be equally true that this overemphasis represents a needed counterbalance to shallow optimism and arrogant confidence in human power. Nihilism reminds us that we are not gods, and that despite all of the accomplishments and wonders of civilization, humans cannot alter the fact that they possess only a finite amount of mastery and control over their own destinies.”

i never got super into or ever indeed fetishized Dashicle’s collages
feels weird that people do now
feels weird to be involved in any way with their sale either
tho i suppose if i can help them go to interesting people and not the assholes out there it would be a service

“The negative always wins at last, but I like it none the better for that.”

 photo DSC01238_zps58c6e0a7.jpg
“All roads are blocked to a philosophy which reduces everything to the word ‘no.’ To ‘no’ there is only one answer and that is ‘yes.’ Nihilism has no substance. There is no such thing as nothingness, and zero does not exist. Everything is something. Nothing is nothing. Man lives more by affirmation than by bread.”

i will go home where i can work on a new painting to distract myself
funny they didn’t say anything about THAT being a cure for love but it is one let me tell you

 photo DSC00887_zpsdbb5d9f5.jpg
if you want me to do all the work for you and connect these intertwined things of thwarted love and just plain love and complete nihilistic horror, see below:

Was ever woman in this humor wooed?
Was ever woman in this humor won?
I’ll have her, but I will not keep her long.
What, I that killed her husband and his father,
To take her in her heart’s extremest hate,
With curses in her mouth, tears in her eyes,
The bleeding witness of my hatred by,
Having God, her conscience, and these bars against me,
And I no friends to back my suit at all
But the plain devil and dissembling looks?
And yet to win her, all the world to nothing!

(hopefully very long dramatic pause)

Hath she forgot already that brave prince,
Edward, her lord, whom I some three months since
Stabbed in my angry mood at Tewkesbury?
A sweeter and a Lovellier gentleman,
Framed in the prodigality of nature,
Young, valiant, wise, and, no doubt, right royal,
The spacious world cannot again afford.
And will she yet abase her eyes on me,
That cropped the golden prime of this sweet prince
And made her widow to a woeful bed?
On me, whose all not equals Edward’s moiety?
On me, that halts and am misshapen thus?
My dukedom to a beggarly denier,
I do mistake my person all this while!
Upon my life, she finds, although I cannot,
Myself to be a marv’lous proper man.
I’ll be at charges for a looking glass
And entertain a score or two of tailors
To study fashions to adorn my body.
Since I am crept in favor with myself,
I will maintain it with some little cost.
But first I’ll turn yon fellow in his grave
And then return lamenting to my love.
Shine out, fair sun, till I have bought a glass,
That I may see my shadow as I pass.

see my above photo that says FORCEFIELD

 photo IMG_2508_zps3d5bf8fe.jpg
I interviewed Nick Cave for i-D Magazine back in like 2006

he set the meeting for 7am i mean indeed 7fuckingam at Brown for breakfast

 photo IMG_2510_zps0fdf2495.jpg
in 2006 i was always still UP at 7am so that made it quite a journalistic challenge for me

 photo IMG_2511_zpsf5138b90.jpg
I talked to Cave about Forcefield of course
and he had never heard of them
and promised to google them or whatever there was back then when he got home

 photo IMG_2512_zps64987c8f.jpg
Forcefield’s artistic gesture of covering the face in costume performance music video etc was a very mega move that influenced and excited young people around the world

an impulse that Nick Cave in Chicago had as well unbeknownst to anyone

this is Anne Pasternak of Creative TIme and the artist Nick Cave

I was totalyl down
Like the Deitch Art Parade I was won over instantly with human feelings that flooded my art brain

 photo IMG_2537_zps43eb9a5a.jpg
who needs their art brain all the time? their skepticism and irony

 photo IMG_2540_zps8a76ae56.jpg
i read a tweet just now that said “irony is the white man’s burden”

 photo IMG_2538_zps01c16ef2.jpg
oh brother is that a stereotype people have?

 photo IMG_2541_zps19725191.jpg
irony is a whimper from a cage

 photo IMG_2542_zpse45b2dc9.jpg
and who is into cages?
besides perverts

Rheum and bored

If the swiftest thinking has about the pace of a greyhound, the slowest must be supposed to move, like the limpet, by an apparent sticking, which after a good while is discerned to be a slight progression.

 photo IMG_2316_zps225d780b.jpg
Such differences are manifest in the variable intensity which we call human experience, from the revolutionary rush of change which makes a new inner an outer life, to that quiet recurrence of the familiar, which has no other epochs than those of hunger and the heavens

this is a sample of the dense and vague book I have been in for weeks now

 photo IMG_2321_zps3d82ff5a.jpg
Herz, mein Herz! Neue Liebe neues Leben
it contains as well innumerable citations on every page of foreign languaged erudition

L’esprit est toujours la dupe du cœur

 photo IMG_2326_zps9f3bd74c.jpg
Quand on aime, on doute souvent de ce qu’on croit le plus.

 photo IMG_2327_zps1e672e2a.jpg
Il en est du véritable amour comme de l’apparition des esprits : tout le monde en parle mais peu de gens en ont vu.

La passion fait souvent un fou du plus habile homme, et rend souvent les plus sots habiles. –so indeed what does that say about our aphorist La Rochefoucauld?

 photo IMG_2337_zps5684cde2.jpg
L’absence diminue les médiocres passions, et augmente les grandes, comme le vent éteint les bougies et allume le feu.

 photo IMG_2341_zpsac639f6c.jpg
Il est plus aisé de connaître l’homme en général que de connaître un homme en particulier.

now THAT is a bit more “gently cynical” like the La Rouchefoucauld we know and love

 photo IMG_2344_zps714b9704.jpg
Il est impossible d’aimer une seconde fois ce qu’on a véritablement cessé d’aimer.

getting darker
switching to the minor key

 photo IMG_2357_zpsdf151d0f.jpg
Il n’y a guère de gens qui ne soient honteux de s’être aimés, quand ils ne s’aiment plus.

maybe even accusatory

 photo IMG_2359_zps955fc242.jpg
On peut trouver des femmes qui n’ont jamais eu de galanterie; mais il est rare d’en trouver qui n’en aient jamais eu qu’une

offensive even!

Pour s’établir dans le monde, on fait tout ce que l’on peut pour y paraître établi.

haha an early version of “fake it till you make it”

 photo IMG_2377_zps75b6c2e9.jpg
poor humans
ever noticed that when someone is caught up in a passion they become a complete bore

 photo IMG_2381_zps17938abe.jpg
you have to endure them posting ridiculous quotes about love in foreign languages

there is a Shakespeare bit somewhere about how being in love makes all your friends hate you, i think its Romeo and Juliet, i bet its Mercutio, wait let me look

 photo IMG_2386_zpsf4fc0d25.jpg
I know no ways to mince it in love, but
directly to say ‘I love you:’ then if you urge me
farther than to say ‘do you in faith?’ I wear out
my suit.

oops nope

 photo IMG_2388_zpsce4f33fc.jpg
To be in love, where scorn is bought with groans;
Coy looks with heart-sore sighs; one fading moment’s mirth
With twenty watchful, weary, tedious nights:
If haply won, perhaps a hapless gain;
If lost, why then a grievous labour won;
However, but a folly bought with wit,
Or else a wit by folly vanquished.

a zinger!

 photo IMG_2390_zpsbbe4d676.jpg
Why, is not this better now than groaning for love?
now art thou sociable, now art thou Romeo; now art
thou what thou art, by art as well as by nature:
for this drivelling love is like a great natural,
that runs lolling up and down to hide his bauble in a hole.

this is similar but not the one i want
balls, the internet is being annoying right now!!!

UGH this hat is NOT doing it for me

“Love has had a lot of press-agenting from the oldest times; but there are higher, nobler things than love.”
PG Wodehouse always helps to break the spell
I think now that I have read over thirty of his novels that he loved humanity but never himself knew love
