    It occured to me how prominent the idea of teaching is in his writing (songs and poetry).* But should we take this literally? Or see this in the light of Jewish tradition? Something else? *I wondered because I read "My teacher is dying". Oh, and because the exquisite "Teachers".

    Roland Barthes

    But seriously, imagine how Barthes himself felt when he wrote this; a thousand times worse than readers who find some passages recognisable. I just can't get past it!

    Roland Barthes

    I read it in Dutch actually. If you liked Goethe's "Die Leiden des jungen Werther", you should really read Barthes' book, it has so many elements of it in it to illustrate the phases of being in love. This book was just incredibly overwhelming, and it's great just to open it at a random page...

    Roland Barthes

    Not only should he be adored because of what he did as a great literary critic, but everyone should read his book "Fragments d'un discours amoureux". Especially when your heart is broken. Especially then.

    The National

    I really love their new album, Boxer and was wondering how their older work sounds like. Could anybody be kind enough to upload the relatively unknown "sad songs for dirty lovers"? Thankee.

    Van Morrison

    Hmm, the price of the album is almost as much as for the Beatles' White Album. Jesus, I have one request (when others have inumerable more than me) and I get slapped in the face.
