Now Playing Tracks

“You know what I think?” she says. “That people’s memories are maybe the fuel they burn to stay alive. Whether those memories have any actual importance or not, it doesn’t matter as far as the maintenance of life is concerned. They’re all just fuel. Advertising fillers in the newspaper, philosophy books, dirty pictures in a magazine, a bundle of ten-thousand-yen bills: when you feed ‘em to the fire, they’re all just paper. The fire isn’t thinking ‘Oh, this is Kant,’ or ‘Oh, this is the Yomiuri evening edition,’ or ‘Nice tits,’ while it burns. To the fire, they’re nothing but scraps of paper. It’s the exact same thing. Important memories, not-so-important memories, totally useless memories: there’s no distinction—they’re all just fuel.”
― Haruki Murakami, After Dark

"I’ve seen the world, done it all, had my cake now.
Diamonds, brilliant, in Bel Air now.
Hot summer nights, mid July
When you and I were forever wild.
The crazy days, city lights;
The way you’d play with me like a child.

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will,
I know that you will.
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?

I’ve seen the world, lit it up as my stage now.
Channeling angels in the new age now.
Hot summer days, rock ‘n’ roll;
The way you play for me at your show.
And all the ways I got to know,
Your pretty face and electric soul

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will,
I know that you will.
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?

Dear lord, when I get to heaven
Please let me bring my man.
When he comes tell me that you’ll let him in.
Father tell me if you can.
Oh that grace, oh that body,
Oh that face makes me wanna party.
He’s my sun, he makes me shine like diamonds.

And will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will,
I know that you will.
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?
Will you still love me when I’m not young and beautiful?”

It’s Been A While…

I have not been on Tumblr for the longest time. And I feel like I’ve abandoned the few followers that I have, who liked my quotes and pictures and music. So now, to make up for that, I am going to upload a lot of pictures with quotes and music, for the rest of this week. Hopefully. At least one of each.

Well, there it is.
