    Summary

    "Human kind cannot bear very much reality. Time past and time future, what might have been and what has been, point to one end, which is always present."
    You thought maybe to compound everything would be to reveal a truth. Instead, you are sliding away, everything has shrunken to hardly anything, and nothing in this world makes sense.

    Summary

    “Anyway, it’s not really about success,” Nicky says. “It’s about informing, and stirring things up. What does chart success mean if you’re turning out insipid bullshit that doesn’t matter to anyone except that it’s got a good beat to dance to? You’ve got to make music that matters, that can really mean something. Fuck evolution, it’s about revolution.”

    or; Richey has gone to university, and Nicky Jones, ex-captain of the girl's football team, isn't too happy about it.
