I am often frustrated by how intimidatingly difficult it is in this culture to construe the depth of desire I have for my friends without unintended romantic or sexual connotation. I love you. Without qualifiers.
That’s all I want to say. I actually, honestly care about you deeply, and I want you to be happy. I want you to enjoy my friendship.
It just sounds pathetic and insincere to have to add “as a friend” to the end. We say “let’s just be friends” as though there’s “just” anything about a close (yet aromantic) friendship.
There are people I love, and want to tell them so, who I would never dream of being romantically interested in. There are people I love who I could eventually want to partner with, given the right circumstances. But not now.
I want to say I love you in a passionate yet aromantic way without saying, I love you in a passionate yet aromantic way!
I just want a simply way to say that I love you without having to write an essay or add pathetic qualifiers to.
I think you’re neat! I think you’re great! When I see anything you’ve written, or I see your face, or I hear your voice, I am really grateful to have known you and I just want you to know that I love you without any qualifiers — romantic or otherwise. I love you so freaking much and you are wonderful.
And I want it to personal. Not an open letter rant to nameless individuals I care about.
If this isn’t the funniest thing you’ve seen all day, you’re a fucking liar.

Icelandic descendants of Vikings singing a hymn in a German train station. They totally need to be on the next Thor soundtrack.
Oh man oh man oh man. 6 guys, and it FILLS THE SPACE. Luck of the architecture - and they know how to pull it off. Nothing is easy making vocal music in a space not built for it. I want to do this kind of thing - randomly perform multipart harmony in public spaces.
And it reminds me of Bjork: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiN_YTyaNtI
My god this is beautiful.
Oh my god, the bass voice is superb.
This makes me feel so many things. Gods, it’s gorgeous and so evocative and wow. I need to find out what hymn this is.
I don’t see a downside to this.
