    Why does this look like the Nintendo Switch version of Second Life?


    This is the new version of all that “productivity software” from the early 90s that tried to replicate the look of an office or house in the interface, like Microsoft Bob.

    That shit failed, too, despite all the techbros at the time shouting its glorious purpose from the mountaintops.

    Wait, no vertical monitor? How do you code, or write poetry, or look at mature portrait images?

    i was just saying yesterday how i want to become- in the second arc of my life- that guy who can quote poetry at appropriate moments. right now i have these lines memorized:

    1) theirs not to reason why,
    2) like a patient etherized upon a table


    that's it so far, what else

    The first one of course learnt whilst hate watching that Saving Private Ryan character who claims his accent is Bavarian when it's pure American high school

    The only poetry I've really got memorized is the final chunk of Kubla Khan:
    That sunny dome! those caves of ice!
    And all who heard should see them there,
    And all should cry, Beware! Beware!
    His flashing eyes, his floating hair!
    Weave a circle round him thrice,
    And close your eyes with holy dread
    For he on honey-dew hath fed,
    And drunk the milk of Paradise.

    And people who hear that are like "okay but what does it mean" and I'm like "well it's an appeal to the power of poetic imagination contrasted to the artifice of temporal mortal power or the power of nature," and they're like "okay fuck off then"

    Maybe if the techbros studied the humanities they'd learn how humanity works.

    in a station of the metro
    the apparition of these faces in the crowd;
    petals on a wet, black bough

    the last stanza of the cambridge ladies
    the cambridge ladies do not care if,
    in its box of sky lavender and cornerless,
    the moon rattles like a fragment of angry candy

    that's it from immediate memory, but i recognize most of the first lines of everything, which is enough in our day and age.

    Neo Yokio is one of my favorite series of all time. It just perfectly encapsulates a certain vibe of socialite absurdity. It's not aspirational per se but I aspire to it nonetheless

    Traveling through the dark I found a deer
    dead on the edge of the Wilson River road.
    It is usually best to roll them into the canyon:
    that road is narrow; to swerve might make more dead.

    By glow of the tail-light I stumbled back of the car
    and stood by the heap, a doe, a recent killing;
    she had stiffened already, almost cold.
    I dragged her off; she was large in the belly.

    My fingers touching her side brought me the reason—
    her side was warm; her fawn lay there waiting,
    alive, still, never to be born.
    Beside that mountain road I hesitated.

    The car aimed ahead its lowered parking lights;
    under the hood purred the steady engine.
    I stood in the glare of the warm exhaust turning red;
    around our group I could hear the wilderness listen.

    I thought hard for us all—my only swerving—,
    then pushed her over the edge into the river.

    I write snippets of things in a google doc titled oh noetry and now, like a sociopath, I will share some.

    In 2011 I wrote this:
    on some days
    you can smell where the devil's been
    it smells like
    burnt coffee grounds, and sin
    i turned to ask him how much longer
    and he said four more years
    again
    four more years
    forever

    In 2015 I wrote this:
    has it been another four years already?
    don't look at me, he says
    you did this
    all on your own

    I find Bukowski to be a bit pretentious, but I really like this one...

    ]little dark girl with
    kind eyes
    when it comes time to
    use the knife
    I won't flinch and
    I won't blame
    you,
    as I drive along the shore alone
    as the palms wave,
    the ugly heavy palms,
    as the living does not arrive
    as the dead do not leave,
    I won't blame you,
    instead
    I will remember the kisses
    our lips raw with love
    and how you gave me
    everything you had
    and how I
    offered you what was left of
    me,

    I quoted this on the condolence card to my aunt when my uncle passed a couple of weeks ago
    O ye whose cheek the tear of pity stains,
    Draw near with pious rev'rence and attend!
    Here lie the loving Husband's dear remains,
    The tender Father, and the gen'rous Friend.

    The pitying Heart that felt for human Woe;
    The dauntless heart that fear'd no human Pride;
    The Friend of Man, to vice alone a foe;
    'For ev'n his failings lean'd to Virtue's side'.

    It's weird that this isn't the first time Traveling Through the Dark has been evoked in chat, but that's perhaps because I thought hard for us all--my only swerving--

    and pushed myself over the edge into the river
