A couple of these very rare & collectible (neon vinyl and spray paint stencil sleeves with glitter!) 7”s of Hot Chip’s 2004 remix of my band Le Tigre’s song TKO have been added as prizes for backers of a Kickstarter campaign for an ambitious and radical new enterprise.
Thirty seconds after it gets easy, you will forget how hard it was.
Time does not advance 1 second per second. It advances 1 important moment at a time. You have less and less of these as you get used to them, therefore, the older you get, the faster time goes.
[I assume] you can jump out of as many airplanes as you want, and the above fact will never change. The reason for this is: every time you jump out of an airplane, it becomes JUST a little more forgettable that you’ve done so.
You can make fun of it all you want but you will always be generally relaxed by New Age music. They’re not trying to blow your mind. They’re trying to make you go to sleep. If you fall asleep listening to New Age music, they nailed it.
The person you are actually capable of loving will always be out of your league, and everybody in your league will either stop loving you or stop being loved by you. In other words:
Love is not a real thing. It’s an itch you can’t scratch. It’s greener grass. It’s a mirage. In reality, we huddle together, or we stand alone, and in either case, we will always have to wonder:
“Not being assaulted is not a privilege to be earned through the judicious application of personal safety strategies. A woman should be able to walk down the street at 4 in the morning in nothing but her socks, blind drunk, without being assaulted, and I, for one, am not going to do anything to imply that she is in any way responsible for her own assault if she fails to Adequately Protect Herself. Men aren’t helpless dick-driven maniacs who can’t help raping a vulnerable woman. It disrespects EVERYONE.”—
Jay-Z & KanYe West - Otis - Watch The Throne - Track 4.
So remember everybody bemoaning No Song Of The Summer? Game over like you ran out of 1UPs.

Do not download the new iTunes prior to installing Lion. Lion does not have that version of iTunes on it. Wait for after Lion. I don’t know why it wouldn’t have iTunes 10.4 on it, but I’m redownloading that now, because the iTunes Library file could not be read unless I redownloaded.
“The opportunity to ride a bicycle around a metropolitan area is not a right. It is a luxury, in fact. It demands not only the cost of the rental, upkeep, or purchase of a bicycle (a sturdy pair of wheels connected by gears and a seat can start at around $400), but a bit of safety and sanity as well. Anecdotal evidence supplied from anyone who has ever witnessed a moving vehicle in the city will tell you that they operate within not only their own laws, but by their own laws of physics. Bicyclists, too, have more recently acquired a reputation for unlawful behavior, which we hear more about these days. This, by my count, is for two reasons: New Yorkers generally feel free to walk in that little bit of space right off the street, which we now know as bike lanes, and thanks to decades of experience, we’re used to the cars. An abundance of cyclists, though, is a change that many in the city are not welcoming. Because of city cycling’s relatively recent surge in popularity, bikers are on much thinner ice than motorists. If the city decides the bike lanes were not a good idea, it’s as simple as laying down black paint on top of green paint for them to vanish. It’s as simple as cops being told to ticket cyclists as fervently as they go after parking violators. The city grants people a right to bike, and this could unravel at any moment.”—I wrote a big post about the on-the-path issues of cycling in New York City. It’s taken me about a month to finish. It’s now up.
