This is Wittgenstein: “If we have a prerecorded universe in which everything is prerecorded, then the only thing that is not prerecorded are the prerecordings themselves! If with my cut ups I was attempting to tamper with the original prerecordings, then I think I have succeeded to some modest extent.”

—Lucy Hughes Hallett, The Standard
“. . . If he is a demon, he is one who has cleverly disguised himself as an elf; like many genuises, he has retained a childlike quality which renders him invulnerable . . ."
—Peter Ackroyd, The Times
