Quote of the day

Christgau is right, these lines are surely brilliant:

And the signifieds butt heads with the signifiers
And we all fall down slack-jawed to marvel at words
While across the sky sheet the impossible birds
In a steady, illiterate movement homewards

but my favourite lines are these (and I don't apologise if they sound sentimental):

And the rest of our lives will the moments accrue
When the shape of their goneness will flare up anew
And we do what we have to do, re-loo re-loo
Which is all you can do on this side of the blue
Oh it's all that you can do on this side of the blue

The song is called This Side of the Blue, from the The Milk-Eyed Mender by Joanna Newsom.
