When I was eleven years old I wanted someone to cryogenically preserve Robert Smith for me so I could marry him and maybe kiss him when I was older. Suffice to say it never happened. Now I just date boys who look like him.

"I want to say something about bad writing. I’m proud of my bad writing. Everyone is so intelligent lately, and stylish. Fucking great. I am proud of Philip Guston’s bad painting. I am proud of Baudelaire’s mamma’s boy goo goo misery. Sometimes the lurid or shitty means having a heart, which’s something you have to try to have. Excellence nowadays is too general and available to be worth prizing: I am interested in people who have to find strange and horrible ways to just get from point a to point b." - ARIANA REINES
