“It was a narrow world, a world that was standing still. But the narrower it became, the more it betook of stillness, the more this world that enveloped me seemed to overflow with things and people that could only be called strange. They had been there all the while, it seemed, waiting in the shadows for me to stop moving. And every time the wind-up bird came to my yard to wind its spring, the world descended more deeply into chaos.”
― Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
ELIZABETH and ESSEX

Lord s Anointed was pulsing in his heart. Yes! If it
was a question of birth, why should the heir of the
ancient aristocracy of England bow down before the
descendant of some Bishop' s butler in Wales? Such
were his wild feelings the last extravagance of the
Middle Ages flickering through the high Renaissance
nobleman.



 
So Typecast You Could Scream
The term "Cutie" is a direct reference to McCartney, because in 1964, when they (The Beatles) first led the "British Invasion" of America, they were immediately pigeon-holed by the press: John Lennon was anointed the "intellectual" Beatle, George Harrison was typecast as the "quiet" Beatle, Ringo was referred to as the "comic" Beatle (though they were ALL known for their razor wit), and McCartney was dubbed the "cute" Beatle. And there you have it.
