Jenny Odell
“The removal of economic security for working people dissolves those boundaries— eight hours for work, eight hours for rest, eight hours for what we will — so that we are left with twenty-four potentially monetizable hours that are sometimes not even restricted to our time zones or our sleep cycles.”
Jenny Odell, How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy

“But more important than both TLC and the All Saints is Billie Piper. Billie’s ‘Honey to the B’ is a smokin’ hot tune, it’s up there with the greats: Glen Campbell’s ‘Wichita Lineman’, ‘Tago Mago’ by Can, ‘Approximately Infinite Universe’ by Yoko, Metal Box by PiL, ‘Never Ever’ by the All Saints. Er, OK, so ‘Honey to the B’ is something of a ‘Never Ever’ lite, but this contrivance, like the very existence of the All Saints, somehow elevates Billie Piper into truly over-achieving high art.”
Luke Haines, Post Everything: Outsider Rock and Roll

Edgar Allan Poe
“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”
Edgar Allan Poe

Yamamoto Tsunetomo
“Be true to the thought of the moment and avoid distraction. Other than continuing to exert yourself, enter into nothing else, but go to the extent of living single thought by single thought.”
Tsunetomo Yamamoto, Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai
