I'm gonna slap that look off your face
like life don't hold no mystery

Modest Mouse, "History Sticks To Your Feet"


The First Rule of Program Optimization:
        Don't do it.

        The Second Rule of Program Optimization (for experts only!):
                Don't do it yet.
                                -- Michael A. Jackson


How did you survive all those fires and floods?
How did you survive your insufferable friends?
It was the plow that broke the Western plains
And it's just my heart gets rejected by my veins

Rilo Kiley, "Wires and Waves"


You wrote your thesis on the Gospel of Thomas,
you shot some reversal film in Angkor Wat,
and this book you once read
says there's less people dead
at this point now than those who are not.
And this film we once saw was reviled for its flaws,
but its flaws were what made us have fun.
And the life some folks had might have made us feel bad,
why feel bad man, it's nothing you've done.

Okkervil River, "Singer Songwriter"
