the thing that made me cry
was when John Cassavetes died

Alex Katz, Good Afternoon, 1974

* "Before my dad died I saw the world as a place. By place I mean space. Fixed. Space did not move, but people moved in space. People and space could touch each other, but not very deeply.

After he died, I saw that people and space are permeable to each other in a way that people and people are not. I saw that space is like water. People can go inside it." -- Amy Fusselman, The Pharmacist's Mate

* Thirty years ago today: Lester Bangs was found dead. He was 33.

* "Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon." -- Susan Ertz
