Let 'em riot. We're Sonic-fuckin'-Death Monkey.

"I think she said 'feck'."
James Hammerton: Everybody's born knowing all the Beatles lyrics instinctively. They're passed into the fetus subconsciously along with all the amniotic stuff. They should be called "The Fetals"
- John Hannah, Sliding Doors - 1998
almost famous always gets me. gets me thinking. about life. about everything. about music.

iv got cameron crowe to thank for a lot of things. for the way i am. almost everything i do (most of the time) makes me a tiny bit guilty. endless parental discussions leading to brain washing of sorts. being me does not coincide with who i am expected to be. but almost famous makes me seem normal again. it's normal to want to live. to experience. to be. to listen. and everything is the real world. no separation. biggest lesson - regret nothing. take your chances when you can. and forget the rest. be honest and unmerciful. it's okay to be uncool. great art comes from being uncool...

one of my favourite moments (this changes everytime i watch it...there are the constants - penny's feet...penny dancing...william's 'sweet' speech...im flying high over tupelo missisippi ...and we're all going to die!) is when sapphire is eating lunch at the same table as russell near the end...and he's all hows penny blahdiblah and she's talking about the new girls and how they dont use birth control and know nothing about being a fan...to love some silly little piece of music or some band so much it hurts.

...

wow. now go read some cameron crowe. he will save your soul (from the harsh face of reality).

also genius - say anything/singles/jerry maguire

"Iggy Pop! Amen!"

Steve Dunne: [calling Linda] Linda Powell? Steve Dunne. Hey, yeah, I met you... 61 hours ago. Yeah, that was me. Listen, uh, do you want to get some dinner? Uh, how about some lunch? No lunch. Coffee? Water? How about some water? I'll meet you where you're already having lunch, and we'll have some water.
- Campbell Scott, Singles - 1992
