"But there was nothing about the little, low-rambling, more or less identical homes of Northumberland Estates to interest or to haunt, no chance of loot that would be any more than the ordinary, waking-world kind the cops hauled you in for taking; no small immunities, no possibilities for hidden life or otherworldly presence; no trees, secret routes, shortcuts, culverts, thickets that could be made hollow in the middle – everything in the place was right out in the open, everything could be seen at a glance; and behind it, under it, around the corners of its houses and down the safe, gentle curves of its streets, you came back, you kept coming back, to nothing; nothing but the cheerless earth."
Thomas Pynchon, "The Secret Integration"

ironstring reblogged your photo: So, there’s my tattoo. Apologies for the crappy…

i have no idea what this is,…if i did i would probably say OMG THAT’S SO AWESOME

It’s adapted from an old Low t-shirt I have. It’s the name and motto (I guess?) of their record label (and yes, I did listen to their music the entire time I got it… this, specifically).

This looks gorgeous! Where is it on your body?

Thanks! It’s between my shoulder blades, pretty much. In fact, looking closely at the big version of the picture, I can tell I probably had my shoulders back a bit when this was taken.
