Like Spinning Plates - Radiohead
while you make pretty speeches,
i’m being cut to shreds
you feed me to the lions,
a delicate balance

" […] fucking rock music sucks man, I hate it. I’m just so fucking bored of it. It’s a fucking waste of time. It’s not really the music. It’s not sitting on stage playing guitar, drums, and singing, that’s not what I’m talking about. What I’m talking about is all the mythology that goes with it, I have a real fucking problem with that. I have a real problem with the idea that you have to make yourselves stupid and you know, do certain things and talk to certain people and this is the way you- I just totally snapped. I had enough of it. I think, I think it’s the same with literature and with art. Like, a lot of the time you confuse the personality with the piece of work. It ultimately doesn’t do anybody any favours, you know? In a way, it, it can, it negates the work as well because I think is that essentially um, like if you’re an artist, like Rothko, and you choose to kill yourself, then that kills the work forevermore which is not totally the point. And not only that, it destroys the work for everybody. You know people who, um, like there’s a Rothko Room in Titan, London and when kids go in there, they’re like, “Wow! This shit is great!” and all they see is the joy of the colours in the paintings. And all the adults see is that this poor sap killed himself.
