Another kind of art
When I was young, I used to close my eyes and press on my eyelids with my fingers. If you’ve never done it, I highly recommend trying it, especially in a dark room — you end up seeing these psychedelic geometric patterns that constantly evolve into other patterns, just like those videos of fractals. Definitely cooler than an iTunes visualizer. As a child I thought I was ‘seeing’ my imagination (obviously) and was perfectly content with that explanation. I then grew up, started studying vision, and came up with a better (but not much more specific) explanation— that the pressure basically activated your visual system somehow (pressure on the optic nerves? I don’t know).
Anyway, I never really thought to Google it til tonight, so here it is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phosphenes
Super cool. Has anyone else experienced this?

1/24/2009 Chris Calls Dan Out as GG
Chris: do you ever find out who gossip girl is?
Rachel: haha no
not even in the books
but the voice is the girl from veronica mars
& sarah in forgetting sarah marshall
Chris: oh! she's also on heroes i think
i bet it's dan
Rachel: oh really?
Chris: it makes sense
dan as gossip girl
me: he's the only one that doesn't go by a first initial
Rachel: lonely boy
Chris: on the show
how does gossip girl know he's lonely?
UNLESS IT'S HIM
but what if bad stuff on gg was posted?
why would dan do that?
b/c he's lonely and wants attention?
Chris: yeah! or because he can't be biased toward anybody
cause it might give his identity away
Chris: maybe it's chuck
but that's less hilarious
but he is clever enough
Rachel: yeah but i don't think he would care what happens in dan's life
enough to acknowledge it
he secretly loves him
Chris: hmm but he hated dan at first
thats why he calls him lonely boy
it as to be somebody who knows dan was lonely
Chris: maybe jenny
but she seems too young
i still want to say dan though
Rachel: she would definitely know that dan is lonely
Chris: but dan would know better
Rachel: and she idolizes the upper east side
Chris: that dan is lonely
hmm jenny is only a freshman though
and gossip girl seems to have gone longer than her being in hs
Wise one that Chris. Chris' addendum: "just to be clear, i have not started watching it again. i just saw posts about it on fb. that was a dark time in my life hahaha"
ahh Rachel’s famous!!
