I love the TV commercial with Elvis Costello sitting in his car, rocking out to classical music: “It doesn’t all come to you at once,” he says.
Which reminds me of the movie The Fountain, which I watched last night with my wife. It’s a very complex movie and I admit I thought several times “Isn’t this over yet?” But after sleeping on it I realized it’s a very simple love story told in an ambitious and challenging way.
Which reminds me of Andrian Belew’s screechy Big Electric Cat and Queens of the Stone Age’s atonal droning on Sick Sick Sick – songs I didn’t initially like but eventually came to love.
Which reminds me of chess teacher Craig Jones saying “Stronger players tend to analyze positions over and over; weaker players tend not to.”
Because it doesn’t all come to you at once.
