Life of the Bored and Taskless.

Monday, May 17, 2004

After seeing the movie High Fidelity (starring one of my favorite actors, John Cusack) a long time ago, I decided I'd like to read the book, by Nick Hornby. Today, I stopped by the library, picked it up, and have been enjoying it since. So far, this is my favorite quote:

"People worry about kids playing with guns, and teenagers watching violent videos; we are scared that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands--literally thousands--of songs about broken hearts and rejections and pain and misery and loss. The unhappiest people I know, romantically speaking, are the ones who like pop music the most; and I don't know whether pop music has caused this unhappiness, but I do know that they've been listening to the sad songs longer than they've been living the unhappy lives."

Oh, the power of music...

Oh, pedophiles...

The sight of the author's name on the book reminds me of the time when I was on a class trip to Washington D.C. While Lauren and I were eating lunch, some guy sitting nearby turned his chair towards us, then put his legs up on another chair and was staring at us occasionally while reading from his Nick Hornby novel. Maybe he had good taste in literature...

...but he was really fucking creepy.
