Self-portrait by Alberto Giacometti. James Lord writes in his introduction, “He works in a state of intimate excitement with his materials, his long strong functional hands never still, never quite clean of contact with his work … The figures and objects are seen by the artist not as pretexts but as ends in themselves and are to be seen similarly by us.”

If you’re not listening to the wonderful Song Exploder podcast already, here’s Spoon drummer/producer Jim Eno taking us through the recording of the song “Inside Out.”

"Humor is an antidote to — or at least an analgesic for — a condition we’re all suffering from. I would call this condition clarity, not depression; humor and depression are two different, but not mutually exclusive, responses to it. I know we’re told to regard depression as a disease, its victims no different from people who succumb to cancer or diabetes. But because it’s a disease whose symptoms take the shape of ideas, it can get hard to parse out pathology from worldview. The Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert once told me that “there are people who have no delusions; they’re called clinically depressed.” Depression’s insights aren’t necessarily invalid; they’re just not helpful. Depression uses clarity as an instrument of torture; humor uses it as a setup. Comedy tells us, “But wait — that’s not the good part.” Depression condemns the world, and us, as hateful; laughter is a way of forgiving it, and ourselves, for being so."
