David Hockney - A Bigger Splash (1967)
I know I’m still young and there’s a lot of time for things to happen, but sometimes I think there is something about me that’s wrong, that I’m not the kind of person anyone can fall in love with, and that I’ll always just be alone.

I have pretended to go mad in order to tell you the things I need to. I call it art. Because art is the word we give to our feelings made public. And art doesn’t worry anyone.
— Iain Thomas, I Wrote This For You (via larmoyante)
One of the things that’s great about art is its attentiveness to, and affirmation of littleness, failure and weakness, its enthusiasm for imperceptible.

I’m homesick all the time … I just don’t know where home is. There’s this promise of happiness out there. I know it. I even feel it sometimes. But it’s like chasing the moon - just when I think I have it, it disappears into the horizon.
It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.
'It felt like people really understood the spirit of Reflektor tonight,' Win says, 'Playing Here Comes the Night Time as it got dark, and then people dancing with their arms in the air for as far as you can see - people losing themselves in the communal aspect of the show. It was exciting to be a part of that experience. It felt totally unrelated to other shows and festivals that we've done. Which is weird because we've played Coachella a couple of times. But there's something about the size of the crowd. It was like seeing something really intense in nature and trying to remember it. I thought the encore was pretty special, seeing people jump right at the back. That's what you're trying to do.' As he heads out of the dressing room, Régine gives his elbow a squeeze. 'I was mesmerized!' she says. 'It really felt like we were sharing something special with the crowd on a much bigger scale than normal. I really loved watching all the flares go off.

I could walk out, but I won’t. In my mind I am in your arms. I wish someone would take my place, can’t face heaven all heaven-faced.

Yes! It’s extremely desolate, but really wonderful, the lyrics are incredible.
Hospice is a staggeringly beautiful work of art
