his voicemail poems project
here are my favorite moments from the video:
'I wish I could write more unicorn poems […] I haven't written any in a while, probably because I'm not in love anymore. I also get bored easily.'
'I'm not the kind of person who enjoys waiting for things to happen'
'The last record I purchased is this new Circle Takes the Square album. Their music has been very good for my writing – I will never understand why.'
'The internet has been very good to me. I think I am a part of its generation that matured as the internet itself was maturing. I felt like we were part of the web's growth & it was very healthy & very free for a long time. The other night I told my friend that I am afraid that the internet we grew up with is vanishing rapidly […] My main gripe is that I'm tired of being sold things based on arbitrary interpretations of my data. I am also tired of web services not collaborating & growing with their users like they used to.'
'Feel like the human brain is powerful enough to convince itself of nearly anything. Like you can just choose to believe that the world is awesome & it will be awesome. Or you can believe the world is terrible & it will be terrible. Like, how I keep telling myself that I'm not in love anymore.”
