Civil Disobedience

Apropos of absolutely nothing at all, here‘s an article written by Ed Caesar in the Independent about 18 months ago, detailing the “fairy tale” love affair of Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder Civil, and discussing how their marriage is a perfect marker for what a relationship should be in the modern era.

You’ll have your own favourite quotes, but I’d particularly like to point you out to:

  • Winehouse, who, despite her patent star quality and two acclaimed albums, lives her life among mortals
  • If it had been Britney, or Paris or Lindsay Lohan, we would all be asking for the sickbag. But there is something deliciously unmediated about the continuing saga that is Amy Winehouse
  • Even Jo Brand is a self-confessed fan.

Good work all involved.
