Jonathan Raban Quote

.

"Living in cities is an art, and we need the vocabulary of art, of style, to describe the peculiar relationship between man and material that exists in the continual creative play of urban living. The city as we imagine it, then, soft city of illusion, myth, aspiration, and nightmare, is as real, maybe more real, than the hard city one can locate on maps in statistics, in monographs on urban sociology and demography and architecture."

"Pickles are cucumbers that sold out."

Born in St. Paul, Minnesota. Mitch Hedberg was a comedian whose unconventional and surreal humor dotted with non-sequiturs and absurdities found an audience. He won the 1997 Seattle Comedy Competition and fans would often finish his jokes with the punch line. He made guest appearances on That 70's Show and wrote, directed, produced and starred in an indie feature film, Los Enchiladas! He also recorded two CDs of his comedy, Mitch All Together and Strategic Grill Locations. Battling stage fright and drug addiction for much of his life, Hedberg was found dead of a drug overdose in 2005.
