1. The first time I heard Girl in the War was with Caleb when he drove me home one night and the line “her eyes are like champagne” came up and I said “Woah that’s a good line” and he said yeah and I explained to him about the time Luke told me my eyes looked like the ocean. And he asked what it was about girls getting all mushy when guys compliment their eyes, but I think it’s because it means the guy isn’t just looking at the girl, he’s really seeing her. The pathway to the soul or whatever.

    All I said was “I don’t know, dude, it’s a thing.”

    look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to

    People want to hear songs with the words they’re afraid to say.

  4. Paul said to Peter, “You’ve gotta rock yourself a little harder. Pretend the dove from above is a dragon and your feet are on fire.”

    But I got a girl in the war, Paul, the only thing I know to do is turn up the music and pray that she makes it through.

    Will I ever know silence without mental violence?
    Will the ringing at night go away?

    Wish me luck I know you think I’ll need it
    For all the hardest roads we have to walk alone
    And you don’t have to tell me that you love me
    For all the words I’ve never understood
    I know, I know

    But she’s not nice, she’s pretty fucking far from nice. She’s looking at you funny, rarely looking at you twice.

  13. We talked of the other new worlds we’d discover as she gave up her body to me,
    and as I chopped up her mainsail for timber I told her of all that we still had to see.
    And as the frost turned her moorings to nine-tail and the wind lashed her sides in the cold,
    I burned her to keep me alive every night in the loving embrace of her hull.
    And I won’t call it rescue what brought me back here to the old world to drink and decline
    and pretend that the search for another new world was well worth the burning of mine.
    But sometimes at night, in my dreams comes the singing of some unknown tropical bird,
    and I smile in my sleep thinking Annabelle Lee has finally made it to another new world.

    Hemingway and James Joyce were drinking buddies in Paris. Joyce was thin and bespectacled; Hemingway was tall and strapping. When they went out Joyce would get drunk, pick a fight with a bigger guy in the bar and then hide behind Hemingway and yell, “Deal with him, Hemingway. Deal with him.”

    Between this and the story about him reassuring F. Scott Fitzgerald re dick size, I’m developing a picture of Hemingway as the mother hen of the disaffected white male literary set of the early 20th century.

    He probably called up Steinbeck sometimes and was like I CAN’T EVEN WITH THESE DIPSHITS and Steinbeck was all “That’s what you get for living in Paris, asshole”.
