"She taught me how to dance. We actually met at a graduation party. I was the only one not on the dance floor, and her friend bet her that she couldn’t get me to dance. I’d already said ‘no’ to ten girls, but she talked me into it. We were together 55 years. She died eight years ago, but I still dance every day."

“ A child born today in the United Kingdom stands a ten times greater chance of being admitted to a mental hospital than to a university….This can be taken as an indication that we are driving our children mad more effectively than we are genuinely educating them. Perhaps it is our way of educating them that is driving them mad.
— R. D. Laing (psychiatrist). This was written in 1967.

“ Thy sea, O God, so great,
My boat so small.
It cannot be that any happy fate
Will me befall
Save as Thy goodness opens paths for me
Through the consuming vastness of the sea.

Thy winds, O God, so strong,
So slight my sail.
How could I curb and bit them on the long
And saltry trail,
Unless Thy love were mightier than the wrath
Of all the tempests that beset my path?

Thy world, O God, so fierce,
And I so frail.
Yet, though its arrows threaten oft to pierce
My fragile mail,
Cities of refuge rise where dangers cease,
Sweet silences abound, and all is peace.
Winfred Ernest Garrison

Flume & Chet Faker - Drop the Game

This video has so much of what I like. Nice music, tight beat, slick dance moves, a strange urban-ness, and a guy doing whatever the hell he wants.

Oh my God this is amazing. I can tell you that the depictions for Mozambique are (very broadly) accurate.

I don’t know how accurate this is in light of it being from 1959, but it’s terribly interesting, particularly in light of it being Heritage day today.
