My Blueberry Nights is a glitzy Americanized version of a Wong Kar Wai film (Chungking Express, In the Mood for Love). It’s more high-fructose corn syrup than real sugar. Wong Kar Wai even wrote and directed it.

“I find poetry actually has very little mystery compared to anything else. Just this morning at the bus stop, a little electronic sign told me my bus was arriving in two minutes, then one minute, then “arriving,” although the street remained empty. Then it was gone. I’d missed a bus that had never arrived. Not a phrase in The Tennis Court Oath can touch that for sheer befuddlement.”

-Daniel Handler, aka Lemony Snicket

“Popcorn pictures have always ruled. Why do people go see them? Why is the public so stupid? That’s not my fault.”

“The tall haystacks are great sugar mounds
These are the fairies’ camping grounds”

-John Ashbery, at age 8

“Oh the pretty birdie,
with his little toe, toe, toe.”

-E. E. Cummings, at age 3
