Call me Ishmael.
(Just kidding.
That's not even my real name.)

"The [Writing] Workshop was like a muffin tin you poured the batter of your dreams into. You entered with something undefined and tantalizingly protean and left with muffins."

-"The Pyramid Scheme," Eric Bennett, MFA vs NYC  (via maureen-rose)

"My study-office is near the front of the house. There are full-size windows that let me see who’s coming and going. I have a customized L-shaped worktable and a comfortable black swivel chair. Over the desk are photos and memorabilia from projects I’ve worked on. To my right is a gas fireplace and a mantle with three Al Hirschfeld drawings—two of me in "Star Trek" and one when I appeared on Broadway in "Equus." On shelves are a number of my photographs that are in several museums’ collections.

There are no Spock uniforms in my closet, but I’m totally comfortable with the character now. There was a time many years ago when I was concerned that the three years I spent playing him on TV would overshadow my career. I’m grateful for Spock. As someone who grew up Jewish in Boston, I was always “the other”—an alien. So I get it.

Sitting on my desk is a small black box with a glass window. Inside is a pair of pointed ears. These are the ear tips I wore on final day of shooting for the TV show. I had them mounted. From time to time, I meet people who give me the “Star Trek” treatment. I don’t mind. Fortunately, no one has asked me to beam them up lately.”

I see his madness and I want to contain it like an oil spill.
oh you know just some more normal hanni arts of normal hanni stuff like eating a bird and sniffing animals.

This artist makes me feel like I am the crow and I am the stag and madness is beauty and all in ink.

Nocturne: Redaction
Tonight I hear machines at their dark work in the dark, I understand the sound they make among the gaps between the trees to mean: someone is building, something is being built, a man tilts at his deadline with no moon tonight to show him how. My son lies sleeping apostrophic in his bed, one month gone by since I first trimmed his hair, those fine gossamer follicles falling, leaflike, like the inflection of the one declarative command: change. I take myself out. Not far-off, not near, the earth-grinders make their voices heard like drag-harrows behind them. The physical world contains an inexhaustible supply of metaphor, I tell myself again; I tell everyone. They listen. They listen like I listen to the mind’s interrogative, landscape’s imperatives, night’s silent rescission. Seeing today—it was my birthday— the steep-sloped flanks of Old Rag Mountain, as if for the first time: like part of what that knob stands for has been redacted, excised, reforested with that hard full head of chinkapin and oaks like hairs. Witness-trees like weather vanes. Hickories in their bitter greens: mockernut, shagbark, shellbark. A mile distant, a wind whips up their crowns like thick sweet cream; I watch a sharp-shinned hawk watch it and hatch her plan, light off a branch like the business she means. Her fine limbs quaver and approach. She hops, wings flick: all conveyor, no belt, or belt of raw air. Thermals outflank the Blue Ridge, insinuate themselves upside Old Rag’s bouldrous head. A red door opens in the sky: low light irradiates recalcitrant spruce, high-blown birds. The noise happens and happens. Who comes in. Who in the dark now stands alert.

March has been a crazy month for us here at SP. Whether it’s work, traveling or the absurd amount of college basketball we’ve been watching - there’s been plenty of time and reason to get behind on all things, including music. No worries though; even though we’re a tad late with it, we still have a new set of tunes for you in Sideways Ponytails March 2014 Mix.
Per usual, this mix has a little bit of everything, including tastes of some of our favorite LP releases of the year so far (Mac DeMarco, Real Estate, The War on Drugs, Future Islands, etc.), some fantastic new singles from up and coming acts (Jungle, Haerts, SZA) and some great remixes/covers. This mix also has the healthiest dose of hip hop that we’ve had in a while – much to our delight. No matter if you’re at work, making some grub or watching the games this weekend (even if your team is out of it), this mix covers the occasion and will give you more than a couple chances to boogie. Enjoy and please feel free to pass along. Download and track listing below.

Memo to me: listen to this

"You’ll be fine. You’re 25. Feeling [unsure] and lost is part of your path. Don’t avoid it. See what those feelings are showing you and use it. Take a breath. You’ll be okay. Even if you don’t feel okay all the time."
