Happiness is just around the corner. Unfortunately it is lying dead in
a gutter after being beaten to death by real life.

Why would I want to talk to a cobra?

ARGH which song is that from? That's the bad thing with these
quotations - you catch one you know but can't think for the life of you
where it's from. Is it on Surfer Rosa or Come On Pilgrim (I have them
as a double-album)?

Vamos off Come On Pilgrim. Still good to see plenty of people knowing who
Black Francis is in the first place.
Mwah.

Hmm. JDB apparently forgave him, though, cos he requested a Sugar song when
he co-presented Alternative Nation a few years ago.

Damn, I should've know - Vamos is one of my favourite songs on that
album. I like the way Black Francis' voice sounds a lot like the
guitar, and that the guitar sounds quite waily. The intro is nowhere
near as quirky as Tony's Theme though, and NO song in the world, ever
compares to Where Is My Mind. I went to see Fight Club for that very
film :)

*thinks* Have the Manics ever had a song in a film? I can't think of
any. Hmm.

I adore those longish psychedelic tracks on Bossanova (The Happening, All
Over The World). They never beat those. <nods>

Right, lay off the vodka. :)

Motown Junk is on the Twin Town soundtrack. :P

deep personal grief I experienced when your husband, son, father or
brother was killed, wounded, or reported missing in action."
- Joseph Heller, Catch 22

"I am interested in an indistinct prospect, a distant view, a mere
suggestion often, revealing an almost wholly new world to me. I rejoice
to get, and am apt to present, a new view. But I find it impossible to
present my view to most people. In effect it would seem that they do not
wish to take a new view in any case."
- Henry David Thoreau

"A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words
become superfluous."
- Angrid Bergman

"I want to make some impact, whether it's being a star or shooting a
president or having a successful relationship with someone. I'm not sure
what I want to do, but I want to matter to some degree to someone, or to
myself."
- Trent Reznor

"If I could be one thing in the world, I would be a tear born in your
eyes, living on your cheek, and dying on your lips."

That is the one album of theirs I haven't yet bought - no money!

Song, I meant song. I think a hell of a lot faster than I write so I
sometimes mix up words like that. -I- know what I mean. :P
