Quotation, Quotation, Quotation.

As I expect this blog will contain lots of bits and pieces from things I'm reading, I'll begin with an apposite footnote from (the end of) Colin McCabe's biography of Godard:

"When Peter Sellars was working on Vivre sa Vie at Harvard he was struck by how many of Godard's references came right at the beginning or right at the end of books. Veronique Godard recalls her elder brother often telling her ... that you needed to read only the first and the last page of any book."

Melmoth! I don't know who you are, but didn't you post all those witty haiku on DSBB years ago? I mean, it must be about six years ago... Well, never mind if it wasn't you, it might have been.

Interesting posts on art. Nice blog, bookmarked.
