it’s very exhausting for me to be friends with people who are not forward, who are not honest, who are always skirting around things with me—never getting into it. it’s annoying and it makes my head feel very heavy. i don’t like it. i wish everyone would just be real with each other and care for each other and not be crippled by this idiotic fear of “appearing” a certain way to other friends (clingy, stupid, etc). i know some people can’t help it but it’s what i want. of my friends. and for people to stop turning my bad moods into some sort of personal attack. there’s just a level of “freeness” that’s lacking in so many of my friendships. i want to be me and i want you to be you and i want that to be ok. and if it’s not ok then we don’t have to be friends—i’d rather have that than a friendship based off of pretending and shutting our mouths and being afraid to make each other angry or whatever else. friendships that are “raw” are so rare and i treasure them so much, but for everything else, for anything else—eh. eh eh ehe heh e. get lost.
more importantly, she’s very talented! but yeah i do think she’s pretty, she kind of reminds me of my mate andrea hahaha. people would always call her “taylor swift” in school…do you find samantha ronson pretty? ‘cause i do!
if there is no love in the world, we will make a new world, and we will give it walls, and we will furnish it with soft, red interiors, from the inside out, and give it a knocker that resonates like a diamond falling to a jeweller’s felt so that we should never hear it. love me, because love doesn’t exist, and i have tried everything that does."

hi dom...i actually had a q ive just recently started writing songs,& ppl have recently been liking them (which, WTF) & i want a music video for 1 of my newer songs, just to be able to have it, for me, u know? ur like one of my inspirations, just in life,& i kNOW u know abt this stuff, haha. just i have no idea where to start, idk what i want the aesthetic to be r there any music videos u can rec me so i can brainstorm wld u need to hear my song 2 point me to mvs that have the kinda vibe i need?
omg YESSSSS MY BABE! i’m so excited that you’re writing songs and making videos and stuff, that’s brilliant. very proud of you, i hope you keep working at it and that you have fun and stay inspired. my favourite music videos are mostly ones edited by david dean burkhart using old video footage; i don’t know why, i just think he’s super talented and he’s really good at looking into the soul of a song and finding the perfect images to match. like, one of my favourite videos ever is the one he made for when i look into your eyes by soft metals—i can’t even explain how i feel when i watch this, it’s everything it ever should have or could have been. perfect match to the song, feels slow & haunting & gentle…it’s desire and danger, i fucking love it. another one by him that i think is flawlessly edited is for we’ve got it by the cults…like? it’s spectacular? the timing of the shots and the way the video is truly a MATCH for what’s being sung is incredible. when i watch this it’s hard for me to remember that the footage came first. (unlike when i watched the video for banks’ beggin’ for thread lol…pretty footage, good song, but it doesn’t flow together in the same way, you know.) i love love love david’s video for howling at the moon by phantogram (beware of blood); the choice of footage here obviously seems like an easy choice but his EDITING is once again, perfect. perfect, perfect. no one else comes near. i love the vid for cycle by icky blossoms (very porny, beware of boobs and sex and stuff) / it was edited by david dean burkhart as well. he’s so good. i seriously recommend you watch all his stuff. outside of him, my favourite music videos of all time would be the videos for crazy by aerosmith, the fall by rhye (the man in this video is SO HOT? BE MY HUSBAND? YOU’RE SO OLD AND CUTE AND MELANCHOLY? I LOVE YOU?), open by rhye, lovers in the parking lot by solange (i think she’s got an insanely creative and artistic mind), the suburbs by arcade fire, afterlife by arcade fire (directed by spike jonze, my honey), the video for shyness by thieves like us (made w clips from “a swedish love story”), sur un volcan by la maison tellier, queen by perfume genius (these colours, these shots, i’m in heaven), and fjögur píanó by sigur rós…:)
