Tom Waits (on Jim Wilson): “Wilson, he’s always playing with time. I heard a recording recently of crickets slowed way down. It sounds like a choir, it sounds like angel music. Something sparkling, celestial with full harmony and bass parts - you wouldn’t believe it. It’s like a sweeping chorus of heaven, and it’s just slowed down, they didn’t manipulate the tape at all. So I think when Wilson slows people down, it gives you a chance to watch them moving through space. And there’s something to be said for slowing down the world.”

"Classical men’s style now relates to men of all generation (…) (who) are more educated than ever and thus are more concerned by the quality of the product rather than the name of the brand. (…) a movement whose messages are probably much more urgent and perhaps even more profound than the very, and rather superficial, subject of dressing well." Amen to that.
