"The two floor dials above the elevator doors look suspiciously like glaring eyes and so it seems that Kubrick used the elevator to represent a giant gaping mouth."

In yesterday's incoming pile at the bookstore: Jeff Wall's former copy of Gombrich's Art and Illusion, with his annotations.

Seems a good time to mention that project I promised to Bruce, Pete & Robert is underway.  Love you guys.

"This one of a kind classic rock song Magic by America is a song that I first heard around 2008 via a K-mart in Norfolk Virginia as I was shopping for some items. Eerily around this time was when I got into listening to A Horse With No Name by America after hearing it on a local radio station in Norfolk Virginia. I'm guessing that maybe America is one of the bands that is probably well loved/well liked by some of the classic rock radio stations in Norfolk Virginia. Anyhow, this cheery and one of a kind song that is Magic by America makes me think of maybe the singer musically telling a story about someone who is more spiritually powerful and/or enchanting to them the longer they know them (just a polite guess I understand and am open minded to the idea that the song Magic by America could be something different)."

"Warren said to me the other day: 'It’s so interesting now. I would like to stick around for another 30 years if I couldn’t participate. If I could just watch.' And I said, 'I would like to sign up for that too. It is very interesting.'"

Thesis: Destroyer's first great album isn't Streethawk (2001), but actually Crime of the Century (1974).

Supporting evidence: Roger Hodgson's ascending yowl, registered & weaponized by DB.

Additional supporting evidence: 1979's live "Hide in Your Shell."
