a little analysis among friendsthe last line of f. scott fitzgerald's the great gatsby is this:
"And so we beat on, boats against the current, bearing back ceaselessly into the past."
i dare any and all rock 'n' roll kamikaze bands to work that line into one of their songs. say it out loud, man. dig the rhythm of the syllables and the music of words working with one another.
it's begging for some wanna-be slug to make it into the chorus of the next great hip-hop anthem.
