Just found this photo of me + Miho + Cibo Matto performing one of the greatest songs.
— Lou Reed
I got to work with Mr. Reed a few times over the years. With every experience one great truth cut through like a knife: this guy was beautifully and adoringly devoted to his wife and partner, Laurie Anderson. It was almost-magic to be around. My heart aches and breaks for you, Ms. Anderson
"My working and personal relationship with President Obama is marked by growing trust. I appreciate this. I carefully studied his address to the nation on Tuesday. And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal." - V. Putin
…a pitch-perfect sentiment from a ruthless brute.
It’s a rare and special treat to stumble upon a book that I’ll know I’ll get to relive the feeling-of-being-charmed-for-the-first-time over-and-over-and-over again.
