Farewell old man. And from the coffin of your madness there is no escape.

—Angela Carter, Nights at the Circus

I don’t want this book to just appeal to transgender people or their allies. I want people to understand that there really is no such thing as normal.

—Katie Rain Hill

Finally, forced to emigrate, two millennia of circus art will peter out in a pizza concession on Mott Street.

World’s Most Beautiful Abandoned Places

Italian product manager and web designer Francesco Mugnai recently added a collection of images to his blog touting some of the most beautiful images of abandoned spots and modern ruins that he’d ever seen. The images Mugnai has captured come from empty castles, shuttered power plants, and dilapidated churches around the world. From a sunken yacht in Antarctica to a forever-closed amusement park in Japan, these images all make up a sort of anti-phoenix; rather than rising as new from the ashes, these husks remain preserved in decomposition, forcing viewers to confront the strange beauty of ruination.

All three of them wretchedly sobbed. It was just that all three were too sensitive, and so nothing came of it, and with that this story is over too.

—Robert Walser, “The Devil of a Story”

We lost your prose pieces in the chaos and hubbub. Please don’t hold it against us and please send us something new. We would like to lose that too, whereupon you can send in something new yet again. Work hard. Bite back any superfluous ill temper. We do feel bad for you.

—Robert Walser

Today the full conscious realization of sex is even more important than the act itself

~ D.H. Lawrence

(from Michel Foucault's History of Sexuality Volume I: An Introduction, 1976)

People rub shoulders without meeting; isolation accumulates but is never totalized; emptiness pervades people as their destiny increases. The crowd drags me out of myself and allows thousands of tiny surrenders to colonize my empty presence.

—Raoul Vaneigem, The Revolution of Everyday Life  (via goghst)
