the doors, 1970. looking blasé.
hung out in harvard square saturday night for the first time in ages. it’s spruced up nicely at this time of year, and the weather was chilly and perfect.
did you know that gram parsons went to harvard (for a semester)?

václav havel and his wife, olga, imitate a painting.
this is in acknowledgement of the student protests that became the “velvet revolution” [17-28 november, 1989] … i’ve been reading lots of havel’s essays lately, and many of them are poignantly applicable and relevant to the movements seeking social change that are happening now. his writing really lends a critical eye to what needs to be changed, as well as what methods are worthy or unworthy / effective or ineffective to do so. excerpts to come.
the perfect movie for halloween, christmas, and every day in between.
