"I certainly feel a kinship with The National. I adore their music and I adore them personally. I think Matt Berninger is one of my favourite lyricists. His lyrics have a sort of self-effacing, melancholy, black humour thing going on. But are also really poignant, with these images that really resonate, that a lot of people can relate to. That line from the song England is my favourite: Famous angels never come through England."

Years and years ago, there was a production of The Tempest, out of doors, at an Oxford college on a lawn, which was the stage, and the lawn went back towards the lake in the grounds of the college, and the play began in natural light. But as it developed, and as it became time for Ariel to say his farewell to the world of The Tempest, the evening had started to close in and there was some artificial lighting coming on. And as Ariel uttered his last speech, he turned and he ran across the grass, and he got to the edge of the lake and he just kept running across the top of the water — the producer having thoughtfully provided a kind of walkway an inch beneath the water. And you could see and you could hear the plish, plash as he ran away from you across the top of the lake, until the gloom enveloped him and he disappeared from your view.

And as he did so, from the further shore, a firework rocket was ignited, and it went whoosh into the air, and high up there it burst into lots of sparks, and all the sparks went out, and he had gone.

When you look up the stage directions, it says, ‘Exit Ariel.’

The first time I saw this movie it horrified me, the second time I saw it I realized how funny it is.

Why is Andy Warhol’s Campbell Soup Piece so famous?

Basically it was huge middle finger to the art world at that time. Which is basically what every great artists does. They take the status quo and make something uniquely familiar but different enough that know one can quite copy it within the bound of that periods art.

Warhol was one of the first artists to really incorporate and popularize pop culture into the art world. He was overtly commercial and money oriented, and making commercial success out of the icons of commercial success leaves the audience wondering whether he is lazy, a thief, a genius, a critic of pop-culture or an opportunist.

This is also why Kanye West is a genius. I would live to hear the two of them talk.

So today I was in the car riding back up to school, and I looked out the window, and in the car next to me was a middle aged man getting road head, and I’ve wanted to tell so many people that all day but I kept forgetting to because I was so tired

Everyone go look at the moon, it’s huge right now
