I’m going to be posting more scans probably. This is from June 10, 2014. I love the “design” of movie tickets. They are so basic and plain, yet packed with bits of information. It’s like a miniature poster that’s made note of a brief occurrence in your life—something you did on this day at this time which you don’t remember. Anyways. I enjoyed the movie. It played out a lot like a video game (if you don’t know the premise i’m not going to go into it). Tom Cruise is great, and I hope he keeps making action/scifi movies. (If you haven’t seen Oblivion, I highly recommend it, for its soundtrack, story, and stunning futuristic set pieces. They actually filmed the sky in iceland and put it into the film.)

'The thing that gives people courage is ideas.' The phrase might be expanded. For it is not only courage that comes from ideas; it is determination; it is the power to act, the power to go on acting coherently. For though it is true that most ideas are the rationalizations of feelings, that does not mean that feelings are more important in the world of action than ideas. Feeling provides the original supply of energy, but this supply of energy soon fails if the feelings are not rationalized. For the rationalization justifies the feelings and serves at the same time both as a substitute for feelings and as a stimulant for them when they are dormant.

You cannot go on feeling violently all the time — the human organism does not allow of it. But an idea persists; once you have persuaded yourself of its truth, an idea justifies the continuance in cold blood of actions which emotion could only have dictated in the heat of the moment.
—Aldous Huxley, Music at Night
The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.
—Alan Watts

I spent like 10 years of my life pretending to fly around on a broomstick and you’re asking me if preparing for a love scene was ‘tricky’ because the other person also had a penis?

August, 12, 2014. Made a collage this afternoon. In the beginning I had cut out red, condensed letters spelling “exists” to make “Nothing exists but the present.” But I couldn’t make it look any good, so I tossed the red letters out. The title remains unchanged though. “Exists” is there, you just can’t see it.

Daily I work on my art but it feels as if I’m hardly making progress. I move slow as a snail or a turtle. I sometimes try to work faster, as if I can somehow speed up the process of learning my craft or achieving my goals. This doesn’t work. Moving fast only rushes your thoughts without you having time to contemplate what you’re doing. I have to be more painstaking in my approach. More disciplined.
