“GQ: So do you consider yourself bisexual?
Frank Ocean: You can move to the next question. I’ll respectfully say that life is dynamic and comes along with dynamic experiences, and the same sentiment that I have towards genres of music, I have towards a lot of labels and boxes and shit. I’m in this business to be creative—I’ll even diminish it and say to be a content provider. One of the pieces of content that I’m for fuck sure not giving is porn videos. I’m not a centerfold. I’m not trying to sell you sex. People should pay attention to that in the letter: I didn’t need to label it for it to have impact. Because people realize everything that I say is so relatable, because when you’re talking about romantic love, both sides in all scenarios feel the same shit. As a writer, as a creator, I’m giving you my experiences. But just take what I give you. You ain’t got to pry beyond that. I’m giving you what I feel like you can feel. The other shit, you can’t feel. You can’t feel a box. You can’t feel a label. Don’t get caught up in that shit. There’s so much something in life. Don’t get caught up in the nothing. That shit is nothing, you know? It’s nothing. Vanish the fear.”—Frank Ocean, Interview with GQ (via counterfly)
“If it were up to me I’d marry you right now. I’d start my life with you. We’d go out and buy that piece of land you want, build a cute little house. Have sex, cuddle by the fireplace and eat breakfast together the next morning. Go to work, and rush to get home just so we could see each other. Eventually have babies, and fight over who’s parents we’re naming them after. Buy our first dog. Celebrate our 10 year anniversary. Get in those bad fights, but make up after a day or so. Continue to surprise each other, watch the sunset from our front porch every now and then. Watch our babies graduate and start their lives. Retire. Meet our grandbabies. Hold each other every night and never forget the love that started this all.
If it were up to me, I’d start that adventure with you right now.”—(via dandelionswishx)
I did some extra digging. The unreleased Brand New track is called “Out Of Range” and it has apparently been floating around the internet since 2010, although I don’t know anyone who has heard it. The lyrics are amazing, so I’m going to post them here:
Hide in a storks mouth sleep till its dark out All dressed up holding your receipts for the numbers that you picked you in a box full of your mistakes and a leaden crucifix If hearts were all made like they were balls of yarn well they've all got the strings that get tugged on your heart?? some are different lengths some would be stronger than others and some would be the colors of your mothers and fathers Do old structures stand the same as any older man a place where something used to live but in the end just turns cold Am i a torn up tattered worn out piece of fabric not suitable to stitch a beret Cause id like to be tightly braided gold and silver bracelets the type you'd like to wear round your wrist As we're made we start to break And in the places you go you'll find these people you know all sewing patterns into clothing that you've called your own And in these smaller designs theres something larger you might find that peoples hands have worked together to make up the parts of you.
