A friend is long overdue a tape, and she's just gone to university, so it will be nice for her to get this and know someone cares. I think it's quite a good tape for Autumn, too. I wasn't too sure whether to have You And Me And The Moon or I Thought You Were My Boyfriend for The Magnetic Fields song, but went for the former because it's livelier and the chorus-type-bit is really ace, and because she's never heard it, but has heard ...Boyfriend. Also, the White Stripes song isn't their best at all, but she's a big fan and thus has all of their albums and will like to hear something she hasn't heard before. Yes. The bits in brackets are amusing things that I've come across (non sexually) at, and are made by geniuses. Flattery indeed. And finally, the title is an excerpt from an excerpt from ee cummings' introduction to his 'New Poems': "you and I are not snobs. We can never be born enough. We are human beings;for whom birth is a supremely welcome mystery,the mystery of growing:the mystery which happens only and whenever we are faithful to ourselves. You and I wear the dangerous looseness of doom and find it becoming. Life,for eternal us,is now;and now is much too busy being a little more than everything to seem anything,catastrophic included." If anyone can think of a suitable picture for the front cover, I'd be much obliged.
