Vocal Cords & Verbal Abuse: Stephen – Play Me Like A Violin

The noise in our kitchen is all-encompassing. Upon hearing it, my mind is once again in freeze mode. The kitchen knife in my hand; potato unfinished. It’s like I have paused our little discussion and I see the frequency of your vocal cords reflected in the kitchen wall, which has started to colour deeply yellow … Continue reading Vocal Cords & Verbal Abuse: Stephen – Play Me Like A Violin

A State of Mind: Zornik – Scared of Yourself

Think about the lies that we told to each other. All those lies, all those sentences that we tell each other, day in day out.

The Storm in Your Thoughts: Röyksopp – What Else Is There?

The world. Sometimes you wish you could just fly away. Floating against the tide. But of course, there’s always that one person you’ll have to take with. That floating ghost in the floating house that is … your brain. I am the storm, and I am the wonder, and the flashlights, nightmares, sudden explosions. Or … Continue reading The Storm in Your Thoughts: Röyksopp – What Else Is There?
