of those pencil nights

Obsession is something to be less feared than human beings and their minds. Because at the end of the day, nobody, nothing, will have enough time and will to keep you { a little } sane { alive }, as much as that one thing you genuinely love to do.

No matter how sinful you know you are. No matter how fucking lame they say you are. Do.

put your feet where your mouth is

For Republik Insula & Art Medium Store's Suara Indonesia Kini Art Exhibition, discussing the idea of victory and pride as Indonesians.

Opening tomorrow, August 23, 2013, 3 PM, at Alun Alun Grand Indonesia, exhibiting until September 9, 2013.

Put Your Feet Where Your Mouth Is

Of being proud to be Indonesian, maybe I should first truly understand what it means to be Indonesian. Is it to wear batik head to toe twenty-four seven. Is it to condemn any "western influence" when I'm sitting my ass in my blue jeans at McDonalds.

Of being proud to be Indonesian, maybe I should first truly understand what it means to be Bhinneka Tunggal Ika. Is it to offer tolerance as long as it's convenient for me. Is it to preach noble causes in public for the sake of some hot shot award shit.

Of being proud to be Indonesian, clearly I should first remember to look in the mirror, and put said feet into my own mouth, before shovelling it down to anyone's throat.

"everybody thinks they are right"

Persistence and solipsism may just sometimes get mixed-up.
And a smart tongue is not always the right one.

But before the whole shit, I promise, I'll be looking into a mirror.
