Sniježi u pustinji...

S novim nadahnućem vratili smo se u Dvadeset treću ulicu da pogledamo našu prostoriju. Ogrlice su stajale obješene na zidu, a ondje je pričvrstio i neke od naših crteža. Stali smo kod prozora promatrajući pahulje snijega koje su padale na fluorescentnu reklamu za Oasis Bar, i na njeno povijeno palmino stablo. "Gledaj", rekao je. "Sniježi u pustinji." Sjetila sam se scene iz filma Lice s ožiljkom Howarda Hawksa u kojoj Paul Muni i njegova djevojka gledaju neonski znak s natpisom "Svijet je tvoj". Robert mi je stisnuo ruku.

It was just a kiss...

On July 19, 2007, police arrested Cambodian-French artist Rindy Sam after she kissed one panel of Twombly's triptych Phaedrus (worth an estimated $2 million). The panel, an all-white canvas, was smudged by Sam's red lipstick. She was tried in a court in Avignon for "voluntary degradation of a work of art".
Sam defended her gesture to the court: "J'ai fait juste un bisou. C'est un geste d'amour, quand je l'ai embrassé, je n'ai pas réfléchi, je pensais que l'artiste, il aurait compris... Ce geste était un acte artistique provoqué par le pouvoir de l'art" ("It was just a kiss, a loving gesture. I kissed it without thinking; I thought the artist would understand.... It was an artistic act provoked by the power of Art").
 In November 2007 Sam was convicted and ordered to pay €1,000 to the painting's owner, €500 to the Avignon gallery that showed it, and €1 to the painter.

Mark Ronson remembers Amy...

She'd go in. I'd call her. "Where are you?" "I'm in the clinic, getting dry." "Oh, um, sorry to hear it." "What are you sorry about? I'm the idiot who got myself into this state." And that was her attitude towards it. She had little time for emotions like pity anyway; she only liked the big ones: Love, Heartbreak, Death, etc. Once in, she'd make these miraculously speedy recoveries. It didn't matter how messed up she'd been for the past however long, how slurred her words had been when I had run into her just three days earlier. Day 2 in that place and it was the old Amy again, the Amy that I had met five years ago. She had her brilliant mind back, her razor-sharp wit, and a warmth, a beautiful lovingness that was sometimes obscured in the depths of abuse. I would hang out in her room there for hours and not ever want to leave, like a sleepover at your best friend's house when you're 13 years old.

Sean Austin remembers the Rings...

On any given day and on any given moment, you could step out of your trailer and take a deep breath and think, 'I am a part of something right now that is as important from a career perspective or artistic as anything I'll ever do.' You're in the South Island and you're looking at this majestic scenery - the mountains and the clear water... You're so filled with a sense of confidence and pride and looking around and knowing people are doing the greatest whatever it is and are operating at the top of their craft and I'm a part of it.

Do the subjects of your songs know they've been written about?

I have had issues with people. One girlfriend used to punch me. I could see her point, because I do tend to be a bit closed off emotionally. You know when you get into that thing where people want to discuss the relationship? I'd rather discuss what was on telly, avoid the issue, discuss anything other than the relationship. And so this girl, quite rightly, found it a bit much that when she came to concerts you would get all this emotion splurged out on the stage. Her phrase was, "The only time I find out what's on your mind is if I come to one of your concerts." All I can say in my defence is that I wasn't really doing it in a snidey way. Jarvis Cocker

Sade stopped by earlier...

Somewhat to her surprise, she found that while the singing made her nervous, she enjoyed writing songs. Two years later she had overcome her stage fright and was regularly singing back up with a North London Latin funk band called Pride. "I used to get on stage with Pride, like, shaking. I was terrified. But I was determined to try my best, and I decided that if I was going to sing, I would sing the way I speak, because it's important to be yourself."   

Sade, long time ago

Michael Stipe's future...

REM bassist Mike Mills has revealed that he doesn't expect former frontman Michael Stipe to release any solo material in the near future.

The band announced their official split last month after 31 years together. The guitarist said that he believes that Stipe is more likely to work with art and photography instead of making music in the next chapter of his career.

He told Mojo:
"I don't think that [music] is where his passion lies. I think he wants to be in the visual arts. I imagine Michael will do a lot of sculpture and photography. I think those are his big interests now."

Blur vs Oasis...

Noel Gallagher has revealed that he has finally made up with Damon Albarn over their spat with Oasis during the height of Britpop in the mid-'90s. The pair haven't spoken in over 15 years following the war of words between the two bands which kicked off in 1995 when they went head-to-head in the UK's singles chart with Blur beating the Manchester band to Number One with their hit 'Country House'.
Noel said: "Funnily enough, when I was out last night, I bumped into him. I literally haven't seen the guy for 15 fucking years and I bump into him in some club. We both went, 'Hey! Fucking hell!' and then he said, 'Come on, let’s go for a beer.' So, we're sitting there, having a beer, just going, 'What the fuck was all that about 15 years ago? That was mental.' Then he said, 'It was a great time, though,' and I was like, 'Yeah, it was a fucking good laugh'." 
Noel has previously said of Damon: "He's different from me. I'm not an artist – for me, it just comes out. He does Chinese operas and that kind of thing, he's got more strings to his bow than I'll ever have." 

V for Vendetta...

From New York, to London, to Sydney, to Cologne, to Bucharest, there has been a wave of protests against politicians, banks and financial institutions. Anybody watching coverage of the demonstrations may have been struck by a repeated motif - a strangely stylised mask of Guy Fawkes with a moustache and pointy beard. "The Guy Fawkes mask has now become a common brand and a convenient placard to use in protest against tyranny - and I'm happy with people using it, it seems quite unique, an icon of popular culture being used this way," says its author David Lloyd "and my feeling is the Anonymous group needed an all-purpose image to hide their identity and also symbolise that they stand for individualism - V for Vendetta is a story about one person against the system."

Sonja Savić...

"Moji prijatelji nisu bili od ovog sveta. I meni se sviđao taj svet koji smo izmišljali...Po stepenu samoće i upravo Patosa.Vidiš čoveka i obraduješ se,  kažem „to je taj čovek koga smo videli u SKC-u“, za Vlajka, on stoji na 24ci, i on se smeje. Kaže „gde ti živiš?“, ja kažem „ovde, na trećem spratu“. „Imaš pijanino u sobi“, ja kažem „imam!“. „Je l’ možemo da dođemo ja i moji prijatelji da sviramo kod tebe?“. To je najveća radost u mom životu."

King of the Limbs TOUR...

Ed O'Brian emphasized that the group will shy away from playing simply the hits and their new record, and will instead dig deeper to focus on the songs that work best alongside their new material:  "I think the important thing is that it's got to be a set in itself, it's got to work. Last time we went out, it felt very much like In Rainbows plus the greatest hits. And it's not going to be like that this time. I guess it's going to be predominantly from this record and the last record, and then see which songs fit around that."

Progress... Gary Barlow

Gary Barlow, man of the moment, is sitting opposite me in his private recording studio, telling me how he once felt so full of self-loathing he would disguise himself on train journeys to avoid being recognised. This was during the period when Take That first split up, Barlow's solo career had tanked, he had not become "the new George Michael" as predicted, and his old bandmate Robbie Williams's career had gone stellar, with Williams attacking Barlow in the press as variously "selfish, stupid and greedy", "a clueless" and "really dated".
"I was living in Cheshire at the time, going to London and back on the train," says Barlow, a mug of tea perched on his knee. "I used to heavily disguise myself, with a hat and everything. I was overweight, I wasn't feeling great. I was embarrassed to be me, to have people recognise me. I did this for about three years, every day."
The night before the reformed Take That put out tickets for its comeback tour, a nervous Barlow went out with a friend and got drunk. "I'm not a big drinker, so it's rare I start feeling tipsy. But this night I went for it. I woke up the following morning and I had 27 missed calls. All the tickets had sold out. That was the moment I realised: shit, this is big; we're back." How did he feel then? "Amazing. That day was the first time in years that I got on the train, took my hat off and just sat there. People were coming up and being so nice. It felt so good. I felt so, I don't know…" Barlow pauses, searching for the right word, "valid again."

This charming man...

"I think if I'd led an acceptably frivolous teenage life I wouldn't be singing in this group. I'm sure if you have a great time and get everything you want, all the friends you want, then you tend not to be so ambitious. If you're deprived of certain things it makes you very resilient and you kick very hard for what you want. And I wanted something very special because I'd led such an unspecial life previous to the Smiths." young Morrissey

I almost went to bed...

I almost went to bed
without remembering
the four white violets
I put in the button-hole
of your green sweater
and how I kissed you then
and you kissed me
shy as though I'd
never been your lover

Leonard Cohen

Patti Smith i Robert Mapplethorpe...

"Bio je to naš prvi i zadnji zajednički show. Rad s ekipom iz banda tijekom sedamdesetih odveo me daleko od Roberta i našeg malog svemira. Krstareći svijetom na turnejama, imala sam vremena razmišljati o tome kako Robert i ja nikad nismo putovali zajedno. Nikad nismo sjedili u avionu držeći se za ruke da bismo uzletjeli u novo nebo i spustili se na neku novu zemlju. Stupajući na pozornice cijeloga svijeta, zatvorila bi oči i zamišljala ga kako skida svoju kožnu jaknu i zajedno sa mnom kroči na zemlju tisuću plesova." Patti Smith

Ne mirim se...

"Ne mirim se s time kad se naracija približava tv sapunici, kad se likove objašnjava njihovim djetinjstvom, kad se situacija upotrebljava kao ljepilo koje na okupu, kao u kokošinjcu, drži likove koje bi pomeo i ventilator, kad su opisi pejzaža stanke kad autor hvata dah i priprema sljedeći prizor. Ne mirim se s djelima koja olako preuzimaju  umjetničke ideje drugih autora, koja voljko prihvaćaju jezik kao sredstvo koje ne smije privlačiti pozornost na sebe, koja vjeruju u sretne završetke, laka razrješenja i ugodno bolne trenutke spoznaje. Ne mirim se s djelima koja je mogao napisati bilo koji drugi pisac."
Ben Marcus, predvodnik američke inovativne proze

...for each age is a dream that is dying, or one that is coming to birth...

...[she takes a drag on her cigarette and pauses reflectively]... I never wanted any of this and that’s the truth. I would have been happy to sing in a cover band for the rest of my life. And I wouldn’t have gone on one of those (talent) shows in a million, billion years, because I think that musicality is not something other people should judge you on. Music’s a thing you have with yourself. Even though the people who go on those shows are shit, it’s really damaging to be told that you are... Amy Winehouse...

Ryuichi Sakamoto, on a different storm...

I had an experience sitting in a tea ceremony room in Kyoto some years ago. It was a very unique and special experience. When we were sitting no one talks, and suddenly a storm came. And so we were just listening to the sound of the storm outside. Inside, sitting inside a very tiny room for maybe half an hour. I felt like I was in the center of the universe or something, it was almost like meditating.

Leaving New Yorke, never easy...

There's a New York song on the album. It's about a moment that occurred not far from here on Houston Street, when I was stumbling down the street having been at a party, a vodka in one hand and an espresso in the other, and just being so inspired by the energy of the city and the people. It's a moment-of-discovery song, about discovering oneself and suddenly feeling this huge sense of possibility. New York can do that to you," he says, smiling. "You come here to change the world but you end up changing yourself."
Michael Stipe

Voda nosi sve...

- Na koji način ti praviš pesme?

- Postoji neka vrsta automatizma. Ima jedna teorija koja kaže da svako u sebi ima robota koji je zauzeo njegovu svest, dok se njegov ego nalazi u podsvesti. Čovek obavlja gomilu funkcija po tom robotu. Onog momenta kada ja oslobodim svoju svest od svog robota, tada se događaju one kreativne stvari, dolazi do nesistemskih oblika ponašanja i izražavanja, jednog momenta to moje ja počne da piše nešto. U tom trenutku ti ne znaš šta si napisao, ali posle dva dana, kada to pročita tvoj robot, ti shvataš stvar i povezuješ sve što se dešava.
