Food For Thought

When we speak, in gestures or signs, we fashion a real object in the world; the gesture is seen, the words and the song are heard. The arts are simply a kind of writing, which, in one way or another, fixes words or gestures, and gives body to the invisible. - Alain [Emile-Auguste Chartier] (1868–1951), French philosopher

Most rock journalism is people who can't write, interviewing people who can't talk, for people who can't read. – Frank Zappa (1940–1993), U.S. rock musician
