LIFE. By KEITH RICHARDS
“What is it that makes you want to write songs? In a way you want to stretch yourself into other people’s hearts. You want to plant yourself there, or at least get a resonance, where other people become a bigger instrument than the one you’re playing. It becomes almost an obsession to touch other people. To write a song that is remembered and taken to heart is a connection, a touching of bases. A thread that runs through all of us. A stab to the heart. Sometimes I think songwriting is about tightening the heartstrings as much as possible without bringing on a heart attack.” .
Keef’s seen it all, done it all, and somehow, miraculously, survived. But Life offers much more than vicarious thrills. It captures the true spirit of rock and roll, the nitty-gritty of life on the road, and just what it feels like to be a heroin addict.
It also movingly captures Richards’s extraordinary love of music – an even more powerful addiction for him than smack
FIGHT CLUB. By CHUCK PALAHNIUK. .
“The things you own end up owning you.” .
Easily my favourite movie of all time, the book is great read for those who love Tyler Durden and everything that he stands and fights for.
Tyler Durden: I see all this potential, and I see it squandered. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables - slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we ha working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war.”
