… the Guardian made a noble attempt to describe that company, Serco, which no-one has ever heard of, but which is an incredibly powerful outsourcer of government things, and it’s been doing some not very good things recently, but it’s incredibly boring and that’s the problem.

Journalism is a trick to find a way of making the boring interesting, and as yet it hasn’t found a way of doing it.

it’s an incredibly static time. Why do you think we’ve got so many zombie movies? It’s quite obvious – it’s so obvious when you know it – it’s because the dead won’t go away. We are surrounded by the dead.

Okay, The Stone Roses are touring live, but it’s a dead album.

There’s a lot of music – like Kurt Cobain and all these people – they’re dead.

The Rolling Stones; the music is dead, but it won’t go away. It’s constantly replayed to us, and it is like zombie culture. So many things just go back and dig up the bloody grave
