Think positive. Be kind. Be nice. Be straight with people. Just smile. Have girl time. Appreciate the people that care about you. Stop worrying about possibilities in your head. Educate yourself. Feed your mind to free your mind. Do something special. Do something to make a positive impact of whatever scale in someone’s life. Dance. Sing loudly. Do whatever makes you happy. Not survive, live.
In “Fluorescent Adolescent”, does the line “Oh flow, where did you go?” refer to a girl’s time of the month?
Alex: If you want. It’s whatever you want it to be, you know?
Matt: It won’t be fluorescent though. If it’s fluorescent you need to go and see a doctor.
Jamie: We should start doing a surgery thing on the radio—-people ring us up with their problems and we sort it out.
Nick: If you’ve got fluorescent menstruation, shoot yourself.

“I’ll never forget the day Marilyn and I were walking around New York City, just having a stroll on a nice day. She loved New York because no one bothered her there like they did in Hollywood, she could put on her plain-jane clothes and no one would notice her. She loved that. So as we we’re walking down Broadway, she turns to me and says ‘Do you want to see me become her?’ I didn’t know what she meant but I just said ‘Yes’- and then I saw it. I don’t know how to explain what she did because it was so very subtle, but she turned something on within herself that was almost like magic. And suddenly cars were slowing and people were turning their heads and stopping to stare. They were recognizing that this was Marilyn Monroe as if she pulled off a mask or something, even though a second ago nobody noticed her. I had never seen anything like it before.”
- Amy Greene, wife of Marilyn’s personal photographer Milton Greene
Jake Bugg gigs are so bipolar…
One minute he’s singing broken and the crowd is totally silent and it’s so peaceful and beautiful. Then the next minute he’s singing two fingers and everyone’s jumping up and down with their fingers in the air.
