“Love has gone away
and there’s no one here now
And there’s nothing left to say
but oh how I miss him, baby
Ah baby, come on and slip away
come on baby, why don’t you slip away…”

“Satellite Of Love,” Lou Reed (4’32”)

“O Delmore how I miss you. You inspired me to write. You were the greatest man I ever met. You could capture the deepest emotions in the simplest language. Your titles were more than enough to raise the muse of fire on my neck. You were a genius. Doomed.

I loved your wit and massive knowledge.

You were and have always been the one.

You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him think.

I wanted to write. One line as good as yours. My mountain. My inspiration.

You wrote the greatest short story ever written.
In Dreams.”

O Delmore how I miss you,” Lou Reed.

Quote Unquotesee all »

“One of comedy’s defining pathologies, alongside literal pathologies like narcissism and self-loathing, is its swaggering certainty that it is part of the political vanguard, while upholding one of the most rigidly patriarchal hierarchies of any art form.”
~ Lindy West

“When I was first divorced, I started dating younger women, and it was really exciting. But after a while I was like, This is just dumb. You date someone younger and it’s… limited. There’s no future in it. And as far as just going out and getting laid, that kinda got tired for me very quickly. It’s just—it’s very intimate. You’re letting her right into the middle of your life. You see someone and you’re like, She’s really hot, I want to be naked with her. And then you’re naked with her and you’re like, Jesus, she’s in my —-ing room and we’re naked. The idea of that—of just —-ing somebody—became silly to me.”
~ Louis C. K. To GQ, 2011
