So I went to the bike shop and bought a helmet. Today I rode my bike through the very same intersection where I saw the old man, and someone sarcastically shouted “Nice helmet!” at me out their car window.

Josh: overheard at work: “You make a little hole in the watermelon, pour in the everclear, then boom: breakfast.”Have you seen the film Boom!?
Josh: On my stereo unit: Harry Bertoia — the LP with the b&w photo of the sculpture on the cover.Yeah, that’s my favorite one, too.

Sonny Sharrock: I’m a tenor player, man. I’ve always thought of myself as one. I don’t like guitar, I don’t like it at all, and I’ve always been influenced by horn players.
Ben Ratliff: Why didn’t you just pick up the tenor?
Sonny Sharrock: I’ve got asthma.

SONIC: I really like pyramids and triangles — I’ve done a study on them, how you can sharpen razor blades, keep milk fresh in them indefinitely.
FE: What’s the longest you’ve personally kept milk fresh in a pyramid?
SONIC: Well, I haven’t.
Sonny Sharrock: No. I listened to Indian music when everybody else did. Everyone said Coltrane was listening to Indian music, so we listened to Indian music. I like the food much better.

Josh: Do you think she is interested in Ligeti’s use of obscured formal structures in his works of the early 1970s?I think you should wait to bring that up until after sex.

Josh: It’s obvious that “R—” is totally hot for you, perhaps enflamed by the photo of the back of your head on your website.
That would be understandable.

Josh: What would you do, for example, if you hypothetically posted on CraigsList, as a joke, that you were looking for a lead guitarist for a Viking Metal band and four people responded, serious about playing in said nonexistent Viking Metal band?I would milk it for all it’s worth.
The exact meaning is unclear, but the urgency is palpable.

Josh: You would like D—, who teaches in Cali now, but has a girlfriend in Chicago who owns a store that sells buttplugs.Should she give them away?
“In the healthy, uninhibited human, there is no sexual drive and no curiosity or interest in sexuality. Contrary to traditional thought, sex is a wholly artificial preoccupation. When a man or woman is given a chance for decent, normal, artistic activity — painting, writing, music — the so-called sexual drive withers away. Sexual activity is the covert, hidden form under which the artistic talent operates when mechanistic society subjects the individual to unnatural inhibition.”However, I did find this:
“The oddly prepubescent curve of her back, her ricey skin, her slow languorous columbine kisses kept me from mischief. It is not the artistic aptitudes that are secondary sexual characters as some shams and shamans have said; it is the other way around: sex is but the ancilla of art.” — Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

CANDY UNIVERSEThis gives me an idea to start my own magnetic refrigerator poetry set by stealing one or two words each time I’m alone around someone else’s set.
