Maybe we just keep bumping into this thing that we'll never understand because we're basically a dog watching a television. Maybe anything's possible; and clearly anything's possible because the universe happened.

Truest lede quote of the moment

Los Angeles tends to strike outsiders as a borderless mishmash of suburbs spread over an unfriendly landscape with no significant natural source of water. When it's not on fire, it seems to be sliding into the ocean or collapsing under the weight of its own untamable development.

--Daniel Vitale

Cardiac quote of the moment

To long for a glimpse of the Northern Lights in Middle Tennessee is not a helpful exercise for the muscle that performs hope in the human heart.

Conversation of the moment

 <setting: Las Vegas, NV>

b1-66er: So I read this review...I think it was attached to Panera Bread on G maps ... and it said, "I'm not usually picky, but the grilled cheese I got has a huge opening with cheese everywhere resembling genitalia..." <pause> I'm not even sure what to say here. <pause> What does that MEAN?

The Accomplice: What do you mean? 

b1: Okay...so I'll say a word, 'genitalia.' what do you think of?

TA: It's external. But if you're talkin'' "grilled cheese sandwich," it's gotta be vulva...vaginal... somewhere in that world. It's an interesting word choice. The descriptor is based on a HOLE in bread. You've essentially decided that your sandwich is a Rorschach test and that You've decided to see sex in the cheese-blot.

Meandering quote of the moment

Whether it's a withering anthem like "Broken Circle (Over and Over)" or a tension-wracked 15-minute workout like "A Chance on Love (Love and Only Love)," Crazy Horse approach each song as an extended late-night drive on a lost highway, with Neil's needling solos serving as the high-beam guiding light, and each verse/chorus passage appearing like a fleeting sign of civilization before we slip back into the desert.
