When someone lies on the studio floor and sings at a microphone five feet away, Eno is in the air. When a band records three hours of improvisation and then loops a four-second excerpt of the audiotape and scraps the rest, Eno has a hand on the razor blade. When everybody except for the engineer is told to go home, Eno remains. Behind Eno stand John Cage, Marcel Duchamp, and Erik Satie, but those guys didn’t make pop records.

Nothing makes my heart so wild as being in possession of a potent night, racing down the stairs in a nude descension, shedding and discarding my hide.

I was in this hamburger place the other day in Portland – they were playing the Parquet Courts record and I thought it was Pavement.

I felt after I finished Slaughterhouse-Five that I didn’t have to write at all anymore if I didn’t want to. It was the end of some sort of career. I don’t know why, exactly. I suppose that flowers, when they’re through blooming, have some sort of awareness of some purpose having been served. Flowers didn’t ask to be flowers and I didn’t ask to be me. At the end of Slaughterhouse-Five…I had a shutting-off feeling…that I had done what I was supposed to do and everything was OK.

A page from Francis Ford Coppola’s enormous “Godfather” notebook that never left his side while making the 1972 film. After reading Mario Puzo’s novel, the director removed each page and glued it a sheet with margins in order to make notes and observations for each scene.

I think the two basic types of music indigenous to this country are the black music, blues, and the kind of folk music that was brought over from Europe, I guess they call it country music, or the kind of West Virginia sound. Those are the two mainstreams of American music. It’s like ten years ago what they called rock and roll was kind of a blend of those two forms. And I guess what’s happening now is that rock is kind of dying out and everyone is going back to the roots again. Some are going back into country and some are going back into basic blues. I guess in four or five years the new generations’s music will have a synthesis of those two elements and maybe it’ll have a third thing that might rely heavily on electronics. I can kind of envision one person with a lot of machines, tapes and electronic set ups singing or speaking and using machines.
