Dancing about Architecture

A place to collect the randomness that wanders through my life

seems we were both a little wrong

a couple of weeks ago i had a disscusion with someone and they quoted William S. Burroughs as saying "writing about music is like dancing about architecture". i chose the name for my blog because of the Angelina Jolie monologue from Playing by Heart in which she says "talking about love is like dancing about architecture". I figured it may have been changed for the movie but i wanted to know who actually said this and where it came from. Turns out that no one is really sure. According to one article i found, the most likely person to have said it first is Elvis Costello but it could just one of those sayings that floated around in one form or another. but it would appear that the quote is "Writing about music..."

one of these days i will choreograph an interpretive figure skating piece about architecture...
