-Bouncing between open windows on my computer so often I forget what I was looking for

Outside Inspirations/Articles/Music:

-This American Life: David Rakoff-"Have you ever had one of those moments where you know you are being visited by your own future?…They come so rarely and with so little fanfare; those moments There are not particularly photogenic, there's no breach in the clouds to reveal the shining city on a hill. No folk dancing children…no production values to speak of… Just a glimpse of such a quotidian incontrovertible truth that after the initial shock of the supreme weirdness of it all a kind of calm sets in; 'So this is to be my life.'"
