— Mr. Motley from Perdido Street Station by China Miévelle (via aronika)
"I think artists have an ambivalent relationship with drugs. I mean, the whole project’s about unlocking the beast within, right? Or the angel. Whatever. Opening doors one thought were jammed closed. Now, if you do that with drugs, then doesn’t that make the art rather a let-down? Art’s got to be about communication, hasn’t it? So if you rely on drugs, which are, I do not care what any proselytizing little ponce dropping a fizzbolt with chums at a dancehall tells me, which are an intrinsically individualized experience, then you’ve opened the doors, but can you communicate what you’ve found on the other side?"

Has anybody read Perdido Street Station? Cuz I just finished it and…wow. I’m… kind of a mess. Bas-Lag is amazing and terrifying....
