James Joyce's influence
From David Tibet's interview with Pitchfork Media on Spet. 11, 2006:
- David Tibet: Have you ever read Finnegans Wake?
- Pitchfork: Yes, though I've read it in parts-- I'll read 25 pages and then put it down and pick it up later and read 25 more....
- DT: That's what I did. I really love the idea of it, but I just think it's absolutely unreadable...just seems such a waste really. I like space. I like linear simple things with lots of spaces, so then I feel like I can breathe. I feel very claustrophobic when I'm surrounded by anything that is taking up all the space, maybe that's eating all the sky.
- I really admire James Joyce as a person, though to be honest, I've never found his work as interesting as I'd hoped it would be. Same with Ulysses. I just found it very difficult and boring….
Seeing as Tibet calls Finnegans Wake "absolutely unreadable" and "such a waste," and that he's "never found [Joyce's] work as interesting as [he'd] hoped," I've removed Joyce and Finnegans Wake from the list of literary influences. -- Rynne 21:18, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
Can someone please post a good photo rather than the one shown at the moment? It looks like someone tried to enlarge a small photo and it looks very rough/ugly as a result. --Demonslave 15:56, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
It appears that the person who posted this image posted it at it's correct normal size (click on the image to show exact size), but in order to fit the field, Wikipedia has enlarged the photo, since the photo was too small.--Relyt22 22:18, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
New category - a question
I'm currently (heh) populating a new category - British experimental musicians. I'm including soloists obviously, and also bands with just one constant member, like NWW. My question is: should I include Current 93? It seems a bit borderline between band and soloist. Totnesmartin 14:43, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
- i suggest you sidestep the issue
Does anyone have any information on where Tibet is from? I'm guessing Scotland, but that's really just a wild guess.--Relyt22 22:17, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
He was born in Malaysia. British origin though. Father was probably a diplomat or in the military I'd imagine. - cuandach - can't be bothered to log in.
