And Now There’s No One Else

“I heard you say / You know, I hate myself / But I love everybody else / I heard you say / I can’t escape myself / And then you do / And now there’s no one else to blame”
— Sonic Youth (“Junkie’s Promise,” 1995)

I’d like to share these lines and this video to mark something that rings true for me. The people behind them have been more important to me than they or most others know. The hardest part of entering that era when there’s no one left to blame is that giving your sources adequate thanks is harder than blaming your surroundings ever was.
