    weird, reminds me of what jodie fosters artist character in “catchfire” was making… check out the movie if you’ve never seen it. its directed by and starring dennis hopper from 1990 and its so utterly bizarre… http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096875/

    really inspiring. thanks for sharing. The ones you picked are great. I’m also really liking “pleasure may come from illusion but happiness can come only of reality”
