When it's late and I find myself in a particular headspace, I often crave a night film; one of those movies that evokes the 4am vibe: everyone's gone home, the air is humming with silence. Now only the underside of the world exposes itself; that which is too strange to be active by day, or too corrupt, or too outside society's standard operating parameters.
Does anyone else know the 4am vibe?
I used to take walks in the middle of the night, just to absorb this sensation. I haven't really done that in a while.
And yet it's this 4am vibe (experienced vicariously, if necessary) that keeps me feeling like the world is still a place of unexplored possibility; the antithesis of my usual 9to5.
