I know that some night in some bedroom soon my fingers will rift through soft clean hair songs such as no radio plays all sadness, grinning into flow.

People are so fucking dumb. Nobody reads anymore, nobody goes out and looks and explores the society and culture that they were brought up in. People have attention spans of 5 seconds and as much depth as a glass of water.

âThe Ultimate Rule ought to be: 'If it sounds GOOD to you, it's bitchin'; if it sounds BAD to YOU, it's shitty. The more your musical experience, the easier it is to define for yourself what you like and what you don't like. American radio listeners, raised on a diet of _____ (fill in the blank), have experienced a musical universe so small they cannot begin to know what they like.â
This is a thing called âBron-Yr-Aurâ. This is a name of the little cottage in the mountains of Snowdonia in Wales, and âBron-Yr-Aurâ is the Welsh equivalent of the phrase âGolden Breastâ. This is so because of its position every morning as the sun rises and itâs a really remarkable place. And so after staying there for a while and deciding it was time to leave for various reasons, we couldnât really just leave it and forget about it. Youâve probably all been to a place like that, only we can tell you about it and you canât tell us.

âI am one of those who like to stay late at the cafe,â the loder waitor said. âWith all those who do not want to go to bed. With all those who need a light for the night.â
Ernest Hemingway, âA Clean, Well-Lighted Placeâ
âI like drinking coffee alone and reading alone. I like riding the bus alone and walking home alone. It gives me time to think and set my mind free. I like eating alone and listening to music alone. But when I see a mother with her child, a girl with her lover, or a friend laughing with their best friend, I realize that even though I like being alone, I donât fancy being lonely. The sky is beautiful, but the people are sad. I just need someone who wonât run away.â
