"The sex drive of men is something we are all comfortable with in this country. It’s funny and hormonal and slapstick (American Pie), it’s potentially uncontrollable, maniacal/homicidal (American Psycho), it is adulterous and is insatiable (American Beauty), it is fun and social (American Graffiti) and it is entrepreneurial (American Gigolo). But women? No. NC-17. XXXX. Stop it with the moaning."
"The practitioner of deconstruction works within the terms of the system but in order to breach it."
- Culler, Jonathan, On Deconstruction: Theory and Criticism after Structuralism, London: Routledge, 1983. p.86 (via fuckyeahdialectics)
"A strange delusion possesses the working classes of the nations where capitalist civilization holds its sway. This delusion drags in its train the individual and social woes which for two centuries have tortured sad humanity. This delusion is the love of work, the furious passion for work, pushed even to the exhaustion of the vital force of the individual and his progeny. Instead of opposing this mental
aberration, the priests, the economists and the moralists have cast a sacred halo over work."
- Paul Lafargue, The Right To Be Lazy (1883)
"I’m forever near a stereo and saying ‘what the fuck is this bullshit?’ And the answer is always The Red Hot Chili Peppers."
- Nick Cave (via hr-stasistuff)
