"In dark times, the definition of good art would seem to be art that locates and applies CPR to those elements of what’s human and magical that still live and glow despite the times’ darkness. Really good fiction could have as dark a worldview as it wished, but it’d find a way both to depict this world and to illuminate the possibilities for being alive and human in it."

This is really cool, but you know how gnarly your lips feel when you’ve had lipstick on them and they get chapped and so you put on some chapstick and add another layer of lipstick on top of that and then your lips are like these waxy, flaky things and you can’t help but bite at them and your mouth starts tasting like whale blubber or whatever the stuff’s made from these days and maybe a little blood from where your bottom lip cracked in the center when you smiled? That’s a little extreme, but it happens, and I bet it happens to this girl all the time.
