the time is right, your perfume fills my head,
the stars get red and, oh, the night’s so blue.
and then i go and spoil it all by saying something stupid
like i love you.
I always want people to like the current thing, and they don’t always like it. But I meet these weird businesspeople…everyone always has a different favorite record. This guy the other day was like, ‘Your records are okay, but the Jenny & Johnny record, wow.’ I was like, ‘Wait, I thought…? I didn’t know people…what’s going on here?’ It’s just so funny how people perceive things. I’m really proud of Under the Blacklight, for the most part, and I think some of it is some of the best stuff we ever recorded. But who fucking cares? What am I gonna do? I can’t worry about that. Not everyone’s gonna like you. You just keep making stuff.
"you say you’re lookin’ for someone to pick you up each time you fall. to gather flowers constantly and to come each time you call, and will love you for your life, and nothin’ more… but it ain’t me, babe."
Song of the Day: I Know What I Know | Paul Simon
She looked me over
And I guess she thought
I was all right
All right in a sort of a limited way
For an off-night
She said don’t I know you
From the cinematographer’s party
I said who am I
To blow against the wind
I know what I know
I’ll sing what I said
We come and we go
That’s a thing that I keep
In the back of my head
