early r.e.m. is untouchable.

yeah I'd seen that before. I can kinda see it, but at the same time, that's a melody that's mostly played on the white keys, so I can see Mac coming up with it without hearing that track. no one mentions the "la la lala" hook on "salad days" being the exact same as the one in the kinks' "picture book" tho.

idk the melody sounds pretty 1:1 to me, just transposed to a different key. and he definitely ripped off the ‘picture book’ vocal, no question. it’s all good though, i have no problem with it to be honest. if you’re gonna steal from somebody it ought to be somebody good, and he’s biting from the right influences, i think.

The true ideological power of capital is that it is able to portray itself, and not the sweat of labour that enabled it to come into being in the first place, as the real enabling force in contemporary society.

"On the shelves were the books bound in a cardboard-like material, pale, like tanned human skin, and the manuscripts were intact. In spite of the room’s having been shut up for many years, the air seemed fresher than in the rest of the house. Everything was so recent that several weeks later, when Úrsula went into the room with a pail of water and a brush to wash the floor, there was nothing for her to do. Aureliano Segundo was deep in the reading of a book. Although it had no cover and the title did not appear anywhere, the boy enjoyed the story of a woman who sat at a table and ate nothing but kernels of rice, which she picked up with a pin, and the story of the fisherman who borrowed a weight for his net from a neighbor and when he gave him a fish in payment later it had a diamond in its stomach, and the one about the lamp that fulfilled wishes and about flying carpets. Surprised, he asked Úrsula if all that was true and she answered him that it was, that many years ago the gypsies had brought magic lamps and flying mats to Macondo.
“What’s happening,” she sighed, “is that the world is slowly coming to an end and those things don’t come here any more.””
Gabriel García Márquez
