I never thought of myself as quiet, much less silent, I never thought about things at all, everything changed, the distance that wedged itself between me and my happiness wasn’t the world, it wasn’t the bombs and burning buildings, it was me, my thinking, the cancer of never letting go, is ignorance bliss, I don’t know, but it’s so painful to think, and tell me, what did thinking ever do for me, to what great place did thinking ever bring me? I think and think and think, I’ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Jonathan Safran Foer

Few pages into the book and now I know why Foer is one of the most sought-after authors of his generation.

What cultural revolutionaries do not seem to grasp is that, far from being a grass-roots art form that has been taken over by businessmen, rock itself comes from a commercial exploitation of the blues. It is bourgeois at its core, a mass-produced commodity, dependent on advanced technology and therefore on the money controlled by those in power. Its rebelliousness does not imply specific political content; it can be—and has been—criminal, fascistic, and coolly individualistic as well as revolutionary. Nor is the hip lifestyle inherently radical. It can simply be a more pleasurable way of surviving within the system, which is what the pop sensibility has always been about. Certainly that was what Woodstock was about: ignore the bad, groove on the good, hang loose, and let things happen. The truth is that there can’t be a revolutionary culture until there is a revolution. In the meantime, we should at least insist that the capitalists who produce rock concerts charge reasonable prices for reasonable service.
The Cultural Revolution Saved From Drowning Ellen Willis, 1969 (included in the excellent collection of Willis’ pop music writing, Out of the Vinyl Deeps)

The first time you glimpse yourself through the eyes of a person like that, it’s a cold moment. It’s like walking past a mirror you’ve walked past every day of your life, and suddenly it shows you something else, something troubling and strange.
Never Let Me Go- Kazuo Ishiguro  (via lovelyradiance)
There was also the socio-psychic factor. Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only real cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas. To relax, as it were, in the womb of the desert sun. Just roll the roof back and screw it on, grease the face with white tanning butter and move out with the music at top volume, and at least a pint of ether.
Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (via -soulshine)

Currently Reading: The Book Thief

It came highly recommended by three friends. I’ll admit I’m a little scared after perusing the reviews on Good Reads. Most are very good, but talk about how heartbreaking it is, and sometimes there is nothing more exhausting than getting your heart stomped to bits by a book. Thoughts from anyone who has read it?

…but I love Canada. It is a great country much too cold for good sense, inhabited by compassionate, intelligent people with bad hairdos.

I absolutely loved Tinkers. How did Harding manage to do that with the English language? I reread it the moment I finished. I hope it never becomes a movie. — liy, admin
