  6. A letter to the Universe, so it does not to forget about us…

    Please Universe, let me see him again.

    I understand that, in the end, what we might have wanted and what we did actually have would not have mattered at all. We are unimportant, irrelevant for what you are.

    Ephemeral, fragile, little things.

    A finite period of time in Earth’s history. An era, like the dinosaurs were one once, but with the difference that no one will be there to remember us.

    But, at least, love would have existed.

    If I never were to experience again the smell of his laundry soap, his hand in mine, his feather-like kisses on my forehead or the warm weight of his body upon mine, I would feel like, perhaps, one story in the history of stories would have been left without an end.

    And that somehow, there might be an infinitesimal part of your story, the greater story, also missing.

    This was the best music video of the year — but you won’t see it at the VMAs 

    About this time last year, Miley Cyrus set the Internet ablaze by twerking at the VMAs.

    This year is no different — the show set to honor music’s vast video output is scrambling to start controversy and follow trends, evident in their desperate bid to nominate Beyoncé and Iggy Azalea for every possible award. But in the process, MTV has overlooked the year’s most poignant video — something more culturally significant, if you can believe it, than Azalea’s recreation of Clueless. They’ve ignored Hozier’s bold “Take Me To Church.”

  10. While I fully understand the pertinence and the importance of the feminist movement, I am always shocked to see that we need to remind and even prove to the world that women are actual human beings and that the fact that they deserve as much respect and consideration then any other beings is not the obvious.


  11. I am particularly awaiting the recorded versions of Evergreen and All is now harmed on Ben Howard’s new album.


    1. REDIVIDER JOURNAL: Your work to date seems to exhibit a tension between sympathetic moral engagement and an aesthetic fixation with nastiness and evil; how do you manage to encourage basic human decency in your work when faced with the fact that evil is just sexier?
    2. DANIEL HANDLER: In my experience, evil is only sexy in fiction. A fantasy about a wicked woman throwing one down an elevator shaft may be appealing; actually being thrown down an elevator shaft is not. Much mischief in this world appears to be the result of people forgetting they are not in a gothic novel or an action movie. A public forum, such as an interview, may be a good place to remind such people: you are not in a gothic novel or an action movie.
