books for all the world are always foul-smelling books: the smell of small people clings to them. where the people eat and drink, even where they venerate, it usually stinks. one should not go to church if one wants to breathe pure air.

“The life of a designer is a life of fight. Fight against the ugliness. Just like a doctor fights against disease. For us, the visual disease is what we have around, and what we try to do is cure it somehow with design” – Massimo Vignelli in the film Helvetica

The sun will not bleach it nor the tide wash it away.

“When you develop an infatuation for someone you always find a reason to believe that this is exactly the person for you. It doesn’t need to be a good reason. Taking photographs of the night sky, for example. Now, in the long run, that’s just the kind of dumb, irritating habit that would cause you to split up. But in the haze of infatuation, it’s just what you’ve been searching for all these years.”

Trivia: The Beach was shot in Ko Phi Phi which is off Phuket in Thailand. It’s not remote as it is implied in the movie, accessible from the southern Thai ports. Probably swarming with tourists now that the movie was a hit 🙂

Imagine a puddle waking up one morning

Imagine a puddle waking up one morning and thinking, ‘This is an interesting world I find myself in – an interesting hole I find myself in – fits me rather neatly, doesn’t it? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it!’ This is such a powerful idea that as the sun rises in the sky and the air heats up and as, gradually, the puddle gets smaller and smaller, it’s still frantically hanging on to the notion that everything’s going to be alright, because this world was meant to have him in it, was built to have him in it; so the moment he disappears catches him rather by surprise.

If it cannot break its eggshell, a chick will die without being born. We are the chick. The world is our egg. If we don’t crack the world’s shell, we will die without being born.

Got no money: can’t get pissed. Got money: drinking too much. Can’t get a bird: no chance of a ride. Got a bird: too much hassle. You have to worry about bills, about food, about some football team that never fucking wins, about human relationships and all the things that really don’t matter when you’ve got a sincere and truthful junk habit.
