“I would hear stories about Steve Jobs and feel like he was at 100 percent exactly what he wanted to do, but I’m sure even a Steve Jobs has compromised. Even a Rick Owens has compromised. You know, even a Kanye West has compromised. Sometimes you don’t even know when you’re being compromised till after the fact, and that’s what you regret.”
Daft Punk | Random Access Memories | The Collaborators: Nile Rodgers (by TheCreatorsProject)
So I’m not really all to familiar with Niles Rodgers, or maybe I am more familiar with him than I think considering many of his hits are the predecessors to so much of the music I listen to now and I’ve probably heard them countless times without realizing it.
Maybe because I grew up listening to a jukebox filled with disco and motown that I truly feel like this is the music that I was born with….I can’t wait for Daft Punk and their un-buh-leiv-able collaborators to bring about a resurgence of this grooooooove… it just makes me want to cry tears of happiness and joy that such an album could exist….and i haven’t even heard it yet!
i did almost nothing at all today, all while in the company of lappy and it was very mundane, i guess you could say, and also one of my favorite days so far of this year.
i keep thinking about where I will live one day. in my dream fantasy world it would be some place away from here that is quiet and beautiful. we’d live together and aatish would rent the apartment downstairs. i almost think sometimes that moving out of new york is just as scary for me as it is for a foreigner moving here for the first time. a huge part of me thinks that i’m spending so much of my time in a place that is actually torturous when you think of it and leads to few personal rewards. i know its a cultural epicenter, and i appreciate that. but i do think it would be interesting to move some place else to get a breath of fresh air. and so what if you miss out on things that seem new and exciting. it only helps in minimizing your attention span and ability to appreciate things. some things really do deserve a chance at longevity.
it seems like people living in new york seem to think their lives are more interesting. maybe that’s true, that things are actually more interesting, but it doesn’t make you a more interesting person.
to move, and i mean probably in several years, would feel like freedom.

I read that old love tumblr and sometimes I think how sad it must be to not have someone recognize that you love them and love you back for it. And I’m so happy you decided after so much time that we were right for each other because I’d still probably be here daydreaming about you until you did…
