Doodle Derive by Picø ҉ ØwO

INSTRUCTIONS: Cast aside your normal motivations for drawing. Draw things that attract you on things that attract you.

Is it because
this little part of you wants to be dead?
Or is it because
your life feels empty without some ritual?
Or is it because
the rebellion against the adults hasn't ended yet?
The adults sell cigarettes.
And you are young and rich for now.
You have the ritual of waking up each day and it will fill you.
There's no excuse to start smoking.
Where is the rebellion in acting like a fuck-up--when i embrace simple health?
It is obvious that there is work to do: strong and deliberately.
We are the ones, we have to do it--
no parents or gods.
Taking responsibility,
living in the world on your own.
There's no punishment
only knowing what to do, no excuses
the time is now, do not wait;
go, improve yourself right now.

-"Don't Smoke" by The Microphones

I am a smoker. I am frequently ashamed by this.

Not ashamed enough to quit, apparently.

Why? I love smoking. I love it for all of the bullshit reasons that Phil Elverum sneers at above. He may be a preachy motherfucker, but he gets why people smoke.

Death drive.

Maybe at some point, I'll quit.
But for now, I am going to celebrate my destructive habit.
Thus, I shall embellish my cigarettes with symbols.
Symbols that remind me consciously of my unconscious motivations.

Death. Ritual. Rebellion.

+ larger

Death.  Ritual.  Rebellion.
Smoking rebellion.
Smoking death.

Some of these pictures are really slick, and I think they work well together to help inform the narrative.

When I saw them/him play this song the first time, you could still smoke in the venue. I immediately did. :P

Oh cool, that's the mount eerie version. I'd only heard the microphones version from the 7" that is the b-side to the aforelinked "get off the internet". Goddamn preachy motherfucker.

Did this in high school to a theater teacher when the lights were low.

He was not pleased.
