“"The more a person concerns himself with pleasure, the more it recedes.
The more he pursues happiness, the more it eludes him.
To understand this, we have to overcome the popular misconception that happiness is one of man’s Basic wants.
What he actually wants is a cause that allows him to be happy. Once a cause has been established,
the feeling of happiness will appear of its own accord. To the extent, however,
that man aims at happiness directly, he loses sight of established cause,
and the feeling of happiness will collapse in itself. In other words, happiness is a by-product
and cannot be approached directly”.
-Victor Frankl-”

How to live like a king for very little By THOR HARRIS 
1.  Don’t smoke cigarettes. 2.  Drive old Japanese cars.  Easy and cheap to fix & they run for fucking ever.3.  Buy most of your groceries from the produce section.  Most of that other shit is not actually food. You don’t need it.4.  Ride your bike instead of driving as much as you can. You need the exercise and gas is expensive.5.  Don’t have kids.  They’re not miracles, they’re people.  7 billion is too fucking many. Find some other way to give your dull existence some meaning. BTW they’re expensive.6.  Get your clothes from thrift stores.  With the physique you’ll have from riding your bike, you’ll look hot wearing anything.7.  Learn to fix things.  Tons of great books and youtube vids on fixing anything. Or ask an old dude. People used to fix things.  No shit.8.  Learn a trade – Carpentry, plumbing, electrical, auto mechanics, tailoring, computer/electronics repair, something They can’t fucking outsource.  No one gives a shit about your Masters in Dostoyevsky…. fix something, dumbass, fix something!9.  If you like booze, drink at home with your neighbors.  Drunk driving is for assholes, rich ones with lawyers.10.  Do people favors.  It’s called Cooperation. It’s how the world worked before money. They will return the favor, or someone will. No shit.  This really works.11.  Make things – Look around you.  What do you see?  Yah, shitty stuff made by impoverished enslaved people far away.  Pick anything.  Make a better one.  People want good shit.  You won’t get rich, but you’ll get by.12.  If you live in America – don’t get sick and avoid injury.  Wear your fucking helmet and put lights on your bike.13.  Find work you love.  If you can’t do that, then find a job where you love the people.14.  Junkies and addicts are like toddlers.  They just want to shit all over you and everything.  The messes they make can get expensive.  Avoid them if you can.15.  Don’t buy shit on credit, remember what happened to America?  Cash only, fuckers.  Can’t afford it?  Don’t fucking buy it!16.  Preventable expenses -  STD’s, abortions, DWI’s, lung cancer, head injuries, speeding tickets, cirrhosis of the liver.17.  Don’t go on fancy dates if you’re not fancy. Most people kind of despise the rich anyway.18.  When you go see shows, bring a flask in.  That way you can afford to buy a record.19. If you had told me 15 years ago that Coca Cola would put tap water in plastic bottles and motherfuckers would BUY IT …… No fuckin way.20. Don’t get cable. Asshole. There is nothing on. I promise. $100 a month ? Fuck no!

autre ne veut - “counting” from yourstru.ly

completely naked, emotional, beautiful. 

Brewmaster Amy, mead makings on Kansas

Hiking, trail running, bouldering, and wildfires, oh my.

off of r plus seven, the full-length lp from daniel lopatin formerly of games.

all emoji story.

oneohtrix point never - “boring angel”

Please remember this, when you’re feeling overwhelmed or down on yourself:

You are an organic supercomputer, your specs not designed but stumbled on through blind chance, by a non-sentient sphere of rock hurtling across space. Your working parts are all made from dead stars, and you are powered by a living one. You consume its transformed light, and transmute it again into the earth of your skin, the water in your veins, and the fire in your brilliant mind. You spark fire in hundreds, thousands of other minds just with your words.

Honey, you are magic.

You are a completely unlikely defiance of cosmological probability, and it is amazing enough that you exist, helping the universe test its own limits.

— what a beautiful bit of writing from “craftypath”

(via microcosmicmorganism)

another one from london grammar’s amazing new LP. especially poignant and thought provoking. dreamy and haunting visuals put to this introspective and self-aware lyrical journey.

london grammar - “wasting my young years”

let us hope not.

enchanting, refreshing
