"When I start out to make a fool of myself, there’s very little can stop me. If I’d known where it would end, I’d never let anything start… if I’d been in my right mind, that is. But once I’d seen her, I was not in my right mind for some time."
— Orson Welles, “Lady From Shanghai”
(Rita Hayworth & Orson Welles)

David: Listen, one more thing. Your hard drive is filthy, all right. We got your computer back. I mean, it is, it is, dirty. I’m talking like hoes, sluts, anal, double anal, penetration, inter racial facial, man. Cream pie. I don’t even know what that is. Do you think it was your intern?
Brandon Sullivan: On my hard drive?
David: Yeah, someone’s fucking with your account, man. And we’re blowing our wad in cash, you know? It takes a really really sick fuck to spend all day on that shit.

"Combining artistic vision with scientific analysis, Eadward Muybridge showed how an image that paralyses motion can catch the fluency of phenomena. He was one of the great photographic thinkers, whose mind reached ahead from still photography towards the inevitable invention of the cinema, which he anticipated by constructing a gadget called a zoopraxiscope that could animate sequences of images to display mules kicking or nymphs dancing. Muybridge’s great achievement was conceptual: he made time visible in space.”
— Peter Conrad, The Observer

Summer’s almost gone Summer’s almost gone Almost gone Yeah, it’s almost gone Where will we be When the summer’s gone? Morning found us calmly unaware Noon burn gold into our hair At night, we swim the laughin’ sea When summer’s gone Where will we be Where will we be Where will we be 
— The Doors —

Summer’s almost gone 
Summer’s almost gone 
Almost gone 
Yeah, it’s almost gone 
Where will we be 
When the summer’s gone? 

Morning found us calmly unaware 
Noon burn gold into our hair 
At night, we swim the laughin’ sea 
When summer’s gone 
Where will we be 
Where will we be 
Where will we be
