so flawed and drunk and perfect still

Talk about Elliott here, in the most broadest of terms. For any ES talk that doesn't fit anywhere else.

so flawed and drunk and perfect still

i don't know about a statue
but what about
a tower of words
words of love
of anger or worry
disappointed words
admiring words
of people who knew you
as a conflicted human being
and not as a statue

"Elliott may take turns here and there, and run into dead ends. But he has a way of maintaining himself and his integrity. He's quiet, but potent."

"Sometimes he was medicated, sometimes illegally. Sometimes he was drunk. Sometimes he was a great friend."

"Listen to Elliott's records long enough and you can almost see him; the same is true of Rufus. The devotion fans have for Smith - I haven't seen that in years."

"I’ve known Elliott for a long time. And when I first met him I thought he was a talented musician - but I know a lot of talented musicians; I never thought he was the MOST talented or anything. But he’s just pushed himself and grown as a musician pretty intensely over the years and I’ve been able to watch it from close range and that’s extremely instructive - musically - but it’s also gratifying to see a friend and associate pick himself up like that and get a wider recognition."

"As roommates, we were a great match if you like to be depressed all the time. It seemed like he was addicted to being sad. I think he worried that if he wan't sad, he wouldn't be able to write songs anymore."

"His depression was a fundamental part of who he was, which is not to say that he moped around. On the contrary, at times his suffering enabled him to understand the suffering of other people. At times he was able to draw upon his experience as a means of relating to others, and part of his depression enabled him to provide others with a vocabulary for talking about things they themselves didn't understand completely. When he was depressed he felt, as he would often say, more like himself than when he was not depressed."
