Violently Happy (Because I'm in Love with You)

Listening to ecstatic music. I was reading this queer theorist of the performative, Jose Esteban Munoz, and he writes about Heidegger's notion of ek-stasis, the ecstasy of time. It's actually just sexy to think about. The movement of time as arousing, as a re-placement of oneself within a temporal context, apart from the indictment to fear the openness of time's unpredictability. Like wind on the skin when sun bathing on a nude beach, the movement of time is a stimulating sensation, not for 'narrative' or standardized linearity, but for unexpected occasions of ecstasy...
