" you left my heart empty as a vacant lot
For any spirit to haunt "
Hendrix by Moebius
It must only look
like leaving. There’s an art
to everything. Even
turning away. How
eventually even hunger
can become a space
to live in. How they made
out of shamelessness something
beautiful, for as long as they could.
from Civilization, by Carl Phillips

"Dirt 2" is one of my top 5 favorite racing games. One of the top notch signature things of the Dirt series are the menus. So relaxing and European.
The credits for HBO's "Game of Thrones" are fantastic. Arya Stark is my favorite character, she's featured in one of the best scenes from the season so far.

Lolita is probably more important than The Odyssey. It is better written, at least.
» In Which These Are The 100 Greatest Writers Of All Time
Conrad, Nabokov, Naipaul - these are writers known for having managed to migrate between languages, cultures, countries, continents, even civilisations. Their imaginations were fed by exile, a nourishment drawn not through roots but through rootlessness; mine, however, requires that I stay in the same city, on the same street, in the same house, gazing at the same view. Istanbul's fate is my fate: I am attached to this city because it has made me who I am.

Maybe I'm still hurting
I can't turn the other cheek
But you know that I still love you
It's just that I can't speak
