Layne called me one day after he’d given me Facelift and said, “So what do you think about the tape?”
(I replied) “I think there’s a sleeper on that album.” - a song that was going to creep up on people. “It’s called Man in the Box.”
And he said, “Mom, I WROTE THAT SONG.”
“Layne, it’s so beautiful.”
But I didn’t know “he” was the man in the box. I’m sure he just kept wanting me to get it.

life with an eating disorder AND cancer vs. life with cancer. i defeated my mental illness and now i’m working on my physical illness. you may think that living with cancer is difficult and you would be right. but in my opinion, it can be one of the most enlightening experiences if you have the right mindset. i don’t wake up everyday morning thinking “well here goes another shitty day with this shitty cancer”, i wake up thinking “today is going to be a good day because i am alive and i choose to be happy over the shitty things”. life is so precious when you spend it happy. you don’t have to be dying to start living.
"It’s not just about sex. Don’t get me wrong. Sex is fucking great, but when you have a connection with someone, when you feel so strong for someone, just a kiss is enough to make your knees weak. You just can’t beat that."- (via edmisfuckinglife)
