When I desire you a part of me is gone; your lack is my lack. I would not be in want of you unless you had partaken of me, the lover reasons. “A hole is being gnawed in [my] vitals” says Sappho. “You have snatched my lungs out of my chest,” and “pierced me right through the bones” says Archilochos. “You have worn me down,” (Alkman) “grated me away,” (Archilochos) “devoured my flesh,” (Archilochos) “sucked my blood,” (Theokritos) “mowed off my genitals,” (Archilochos) “stolen my reasoning mind” (Theognis).

"After this the pages turn blood red, and thick gouts of blood pour down them from innumerable wounds. This disturbing decoration continues for ten consecutive pages (the last folio was cut out at some date, leaving only a stub). I count approximately 540 wounds on the bloodiest page, so perhaps taken together they were intended to represent the 5400 or more wounds received by Christ according to texts of late medieval devotion."

Dante
che piazza è quella in cui siamo

Virgilio
Un altro punto di partenza
E’ la piazza della nostra comune appartenenza
Arrivammo quando in piazza c’erano già molte altre persone
Le sentimmo ridere e ci unimmo a loro
e ciò che vedemmo fece ridere anche noi
Tu all’inizio ridacchiavi
poi anche tu ti piegasti
nella risata generale

Dante
Dinanzi a noi vedemmo uomini inginocchiarsi sul selciato
avevano la barba
portavano nere cappe rotonde
e ampi pastrani
Sputavano sulla pietra e la strofinavano
con le maniche e le nude mani

Virgilio
Ridemmo quando la loro bocca fu schiacciata
nel muco
sputato da altri prima di loro

Dante
Non erano risa
Io tremavo e piangevo

Virgilio
Dal ridere ti scendevano
le lacrime dagli occhi

Scratching Pad is shutting down. Please help our cats keep their home

Hello friends of the internet. I recently got this eviction notice from the landlord.

"This letter is notice to you that your current lease/rental agreement for the above described premises will expire at midnight on (date) 06/30/2014  and will not be renewed.

You are required to surrender the premises to Landlord/Agent upon lease expiration. Please return the premises to the same condition as you found it upon move-in, normal wear and tear excepted. You are required to return all keys when vacating the premises.”

This means no more cat photos or videos. And more than twenty cats will end up homeless again.

Those who lord over the land is trying to kick us out because we haven’t been able to pay rent on time for the past few months. My roommates have had some financial struggles (including medical emergencies) and after all the cat expenses I don’t have the savings to cover their portion of the rent. 

But, we have one last-ditch effort. If I can somehow raise enough for July and August rent I might be able to talk the management into letting me renew the lease.

If this doesn’t happen, I’ll see if I can apply the entire amount for a temporary sublet so that we can find all the cats homes by the end of August.

Once again I’m putting my faith in the mysterious powers of the internet and the wonderful people who love cats and the other wonderful people who believe in what I’m trying to accomplish.

If we can raise enough money so that I can focus completely on the Scratching Pad a few really cool things will happen.

1. I’m working on a screenplay for a cat reenactment of a popular TV series, using the green screen. I even bought a green spandex suit for some reason.

2. I’m talking with some interior decorators about making the room downstairs into a really awesome cat room with livestreaming cameras. 

3. Potentially converting the rest of the basement into an informal cat cafe and being able to host more visitors.
