“All cities have a ferris wheel now. It’s the cool kid’s new jacket. … The Gothenburg ferris wheel is a modest wheel. Not even half as high as the London Eye. It’s not the cool kid’s jacket. It is the somewhat similar copy of the cool kid’s jacket that your mum buys from a cheap mailorder company. Half a year too late, when it’s not cool anymore. It is a jacket you hate until it starts falling apart and gets dirty, old and familiar.”
Jens Lekman’s notes and sketches are some of my favorite things.
