do every stupid thing that makes you feel alive

1. Oh Tina Fey. Thanks. Just thanks.

2. The Mountain Goats' new album arrived in the mail this weekend. I preordered it, I always preorder the Mountain Goats. I figure that John Darnielle's music has meant enough to me that I ought to support it financially. 
I see this song as his version of "It Gets Better." Thanks for the life advice, John. (Lyrics here)

3. Holy crap just look at this piece of art by Bryan Christie. I'm a little obsessed with it. 

4. Thanks to my lovely cousin Malia for sharing this poem:


There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground,
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;

And frogs in the pools singing at night,
And wild plum trees in tremulous white;

Robins will wear their feathery fire,
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;

And not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it is done.

Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree,
If mankind perished utterly;

And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn
Would scarcely know that we were gone. 

- Sara Teasdale
