#VerseThursday here’s some Robert Frost

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

(btw this is how you write a joke for absolutely no one)

RIP 🎸 

when I think about VH, obviously it's in relation to Eddie fucking shredding and/oir Dave peacocking about, but just as often it's about those background harmonies EVH and Michael Anthony sing, I love those fucking harmonies so much

"symphony for 1,000 radios" WHAT IS UP WITH THESE TITLES

Show thread

SYMPHONY FOR 1,000 RADIOS [radio] 

one thousand underpaid salespeople
twiddling one thousand tuner knobs
over the course of one thousand hours
sculpting the static into a symphony
loud enough to rattle the windows
persistent enough to deter commerce
no one says anything because it all
suspiciously looks like hard work

"interlude in yellow" who the fuck do I think I am

DREAM #9 (INTERLUDE IN YELLOW) [bulky] 

You stand on the gore like a shy child in a school play. Your hair is teased by a cement wind. You feel constricted in the bulk of your layers. Your club-goth shirt has a sash of negative space, and your
cool pants look light a giant mustard stain in the light of day. Your golden kicks are the color of a median line on a lost highway. You don't know if the sedan teetering on the edge of the shoulder is yours or not. It's a clear day and no one else is here.

the biggest myth ever perpetuated is that anyone involved in live TV is "prepared"
