I Have A New Guru

His name is Andrew Oliver Burkeman. I chose him because of this. Other than that, I know very little about him.

“Give up on yourself. Begin taking action now, while being neurotic or imperfect, or a procrastinator, or unhealthy, or lazy, or any other label by which you inaccurately describe yourself. Go ahead and be the best imperfect person you can be and get started on those things you want to accomplish before you die.”

Japanese psychotherapist Shoma Morita,

Jorge and Alexa

Cover a song by the Acoustic Zeroes. Sullivan says this was viral in 09. I never saw it, so how could it have been viral? Besides, it still has less than 700,000 hits.

I Liked This Today

The 7 Bowls of Tea

The first bowl of tea moistens my throat,
the second breaks my loneliness, and
the third bowl racks my brains, bringing to light the texts of 5,000 volumes.
The fourth induces perspiration whereby all ills evaporate through my pores.
The fifth makes my muscles and bones feel light, and
the sixth links me to celestials.
Be careful when drinking the seventh bowl,
as it makes you feel as if a cool breeze were coming from your armpits.

Brain Stuff, Brain Stuff, Brain Stuff

My favorite stuff.
In other words: one night someone else went to sleep and woke up as me. I do a lot of the same things as him but I know that I'm not the one who came up with them. I like a lot of the same things as him but I know I didn't discover them. Otherwise I act in ways that he wouldn't have thought of and found new stuff to like that he wouldn't have recognized. I've taken that poor bastard's place and he barely even realized it was happening. It's awesome.
