"I’ve always been interested in things that are made by people who don’t know what they’re doing. Like a song by the Shaggs, a film by the Kuchar brothers, or a house made of driftwood by a stoned but ambitious hippie: Something always happens when people get in over their heads. I like to put myself in this position on purpose. I might create an artificial constraint that always puts me back at square one, like “From now on I’m only going to make paintings using pasta,” or set myself a near-impossible task, like “I’m going to make a feature film in my spare time with no money.” - Scott Reeder, on Moon World

"Situated on the edge of Chula Vista’s bay front, the Salt Works is a faded, time-worn array of rusty conveyer belts and storage barns dating back to the early 1900s. To the company’s north lie chiseled white mountains of salt, reaching heights of 40 feet. The company has been harvesting salt since the 1870s — making it the longest-running business in San Diego aside from The San Diego Union-Tribune, which started in 1868 as the San Diego Union.” -The Hidden Salt Ponds of Chula Vista, vosd.org

"The apparent ease of California life is an illusion, and those who believe the illusion real live here in only the most temporary way. I know as well as the next person that there is considerable transcendent value in a river running wild and undimmed, a river running free over granite, but I have also lived beneath such a river when it was running in flood, and gone without showers when it was running dry." - Joan Didion, from Holy Water

A story I like told in a poorly constructed sentence

Jack Kerouac (yawn) took a girl on a first date wherein she proceeded to eat seven hot dogs to which he said in retrospect he fell completely and immediately in love. 

How to Turn it Around: Museum Speak

Q: Why isn’t there an informational brochure?!

A: We have complete faith in your ability to put the narrative together in your own specific way.

Q: Completely unanswerable and indefinable question?

A: Let me look into that for you and take too long doing it so that you lose interest.
