music is my boyfriend

who i am: jess, old enough to rent a car, redhead by choice, mfa candidate.

things you need to know: i now live in chicago, but i used to live in new york city. i go to a lot of shows. i stopped being ashamed of my musical tastes a long time ago. the first time i heard "eleanor rigby" by the beatles, i was nine years old and it changed my life. i'm writing a novel.

what you'll find here: music, my first true love; writing - quotes about it, bits of it, book recommendations; other pop culture miscellanea, up to and including my obsession with all things british, various superheroes, and other shiny things that catch my attention.

"So what did you think?"
"…Of ‘Titus’?"
“Yes, of ‘Titus’.”
Kit looks Will right in the eye. “You stole most of it from me.”
Will blushes, just a bit, and hates himself for that much more than he does for the borderline plagiarism.
"The papers all hate it, except the Guardian," says Kit, "and they just haven’t made up their minds about whether it’s political commentary or a sign that we’re all dead inside. Your mother is furious, the Mail wants it banned, and you’re never getting a job with CBBC ever again.”
Kit pauses, just long enough to make Will consider running back to Stratford right this instant, and finally grins.
"I fucking loved it.”

"Yeah, I guess that makes sense that he would be drafted, but I always liked the idea that he wasn’t drafted, you know, that he made the choice to enlist himself because I always thought that he, uh… When I read up on the comics, he was, you know, given his family background. He was always sort of following his dad’s footsteps, which would always had been in the army.
