I’ve just finished a delicious book that had me reeling for days after. Middlesex by Jeffery Eugenides. Highly Recommend. The author coins a concept, Periphisense, that defines the chemical feeling of new love in a way I’ve never heard it described before. Purely brilliant. Like all great things addictive, (talking about you Breaking Bad), I can’t wait to forget about this gorgeous novel to come back to it a little ways down the road.
Ze Quote: “Dr. Luce introduced the concept of “periphescence”. The word itself means nothing; Luce made it up to avoid any etymological associations. The state of periphescence, however, is well known. It denotes the first fever of human pair bonding. It causes giddiness, elation, a tickling on the chest wall, the urge to climb a balcony on the rope of the beloved’s hair. Periphescence denotes the inital drugged and happy bedtime where you sniff your lover like a scented poppy for hours running. (It lasts, Luce explained, up to two years–tops.)” ― Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex

From the gorgeous mouth of Dave Grohl, “I’m not satisfied”. I’m in total agreement. Below is an incredible Podcast from the always (mostly) interesting Chris Hardwick with Dave Grohl about the current state of mainstream pop music and what could maybe (just maybe!) happen once enough have grown sick enough of this bologna bullshaz and help move it forward in a most excellent direction (90’s esque would be the bomb).

Quote Numero Two: “I read once that the ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand & the Eskimos had a hundred words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, but all that comes to mind is the way you move against me while you sleep & there are no words for that.” ― Brian Andreas, Story People: Selected Stories & Drawings of Brian Andreas
