Summer Lyrics

"Quando paramucho mi amore de felice carazón
Mundo paparazzi mi amore chica ferdi para sol
Questo obrigado tanto mucho que canite carousel”

—- Lennon-McCartney (legally, but all Lennon in truth), from SUN KING off “Abbey Rd”.

Literature Is A Tiny Cocktail Umbrella

"Literary citizenship is about buying books, subscribing to lit mags, going to readings. It isn’t about offering superficial, promiscuous support. It isn’t about honesty. It’s not about standing on the side of what’s right when it comes to what matters most. Literature is a tiny cocktail umbrella under which we take refuge from the storm of shit. The first question we literary fundamentalists should ask ourselves is something like this: if we don’t reinforce our tiny cocktail umbrella so it’s as sturdy as can be, how will we keep the shit off our shoulders?

Once upon a time on the internet, a writer described a Tao Lin novel as “a work of startling interiority.” This seemed misleading to the point of immorality.”

Your Way

"People are more than you think they are. And they’re less, as well. The trick lies in negotiating your way between the two."

—- from Michael Cunningham’s new novel, THE SNOW QUEEN, which I finished reading yesterday.

The smooth And Regulated Surface Of Ordinary Mediocre Art/ In Bed With My Transistor Radio

"[Bob] Dylan is not easily talked about! Best just to listen! I will just say that his music was probably my initiation to the world that coheres around the idea that the smooth and regulated surface of ordinary mediocre art needed to be dug into, to be explored, to be indeed troubled. I respond positively to photographs of sunsets, but I much prefer JMW Turner. Hearing Dylan sing “Lay, Lady, Lay” in the middle of the night, in bed with my transistor radio, started all that."

—- from a Q&A with Gary Amdahl.

Moment where east coast/NY person says ‘beautiful .. that’s so LA’
I think its the lack of layers of ‘ny grit’ despite bloomberg’s valient efforts ..
Photo is beautiful, saturated, lovely composition ..
