I got to see a prerelease showing of a documentary on Vivian Mairer tonight. Some of the most inspiring things I’ve seen in a long time.

I hear the broken bells across the world pleasuring the crack. It seems like an over filled glance that soaked up my inners and turned to just break my neck.

Then I hang and can only peak upon the washed up loves, brothers of my now past. They are incoherent, I have been homeless since an eruption of the off beat drum. I soar through interstates and illusion of friendship.

I am interested in a darling with curly hair and big eyes. She evaporated and I am in realization. Self absorbed with dances and masterminding the broken bell that pierced the drum, Scattering the harlet I could find passion from.

I am hanging along life with a snapped idea cure and be cured. Only to be Tortured by all the outcomes. Tortured by the backhanded Lee. And tortured by the inflicted processing rewinds of heels, to mountains, to south, or west.

Tainted treasures and false relations. My isolated character or a fever of touch can not give allowance to the end of entirety. There may not be an end or compassion. Just redundant poems with a bottle to run me down.

Throwin it back to just this past Saturday. Shit still has me reeling. My roommates and I packed out the living room and the homies in Cave Life and Fiancé killed it. I even got to rip through a Maiden Names set and wreck shit with Wrinkles to send Drew back to San Francisco. Not even Edward Scissorhands could bring me down.

This fantastic and moving tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman by Caleb Slain features over 40 of Hoffman’s films.

At 17:22 the video uses a clip from a 2010 interview with Ross Reynolds of NPR affiliate KUOW in which Hoffman says:

People need each other and that actual interaction or relationship or friendship or romantic love affair, all the different ways relationships take form—is one of the hardest things we do in our lives. It’s one of the biggest risks we’ll take in our lives… If you say ‘yes’ to someone, ‘I will,’ [you] are also saying, ‘I will be hurt by you.’ Because you can’t have relationships if you’re not willing to be disappointed and hurt by that person. It’s almost impossible. And you have to be able to enter the world and realize that the richness of life is all the good and joy and thrill of it, but also all the disappointment, hurt, and heartache of it—and that all of that is what’s great.

Hoffman spoke to Terry in 1999 and 2008. We play parts of both interviews in our tribute to him.

This is my good bud Shawn. He was the man that showed me the ropes. We’d always lurk around San Fran, shootin’, smokin’, and lovin life. I miss ya homie.

If you happen to be in the Bay Area tonight book and job gallery is having a memorial of Shawn. All of his art work left in his room will be cluttered throughout the entire gallery. I wish nothing more than to be in San Francisco tonight with friends and tears, being able to celebrate Shawn’s very accomplished short life and pay my respects to him and all he has done for me. This is a man I hold very dear to my heart and respect and love dearly. His relentless, effortless way of living and being a friend is very inspirational. And from this tragedy I have learned to hold friends and art dearer than I already did. The struggle and pain of losing a friend hasn’t been easy and even now I still struggle. I know I took you for granted and wish I wasn’t so foolish before leaving the city. It’s a regret that’ll stay with me for the rest of my life and I will always contemplate on why I didn’t say goodbye. But since hearing the news of your passing there hasn’t been a moment where you weren’t in thought. I am just very grateful that I was able to know you on a personal level. Being able to have memories of our long drives, walks through the city, and conversation of our lives, goals, and struggles has and will make me a better man. So thank you Shawn, yet again for making me a better person. This one is for you.
