..::Isn't This Keane::..

here is a link to a sweet album again these guys are from England. hmmm. makes you wonder why do we listen to those minstrels from the island across the water...

"Excrement is not designed or crafted at all; it is merely emitted, or dumped. It may have a more or less coherent shape, or it may not, but it is in any case certainly not wrought. The notion of carefully wrought bullshit involves, then, a certain inner strain. Thoughtful attention to detail requires discipline and objectivity. It entails accepting standards and limitations that forbid the indulgence of impluse or whim. It is not out of the question at all. The realms of advertising and of public relations, and the nowadays closely related realm of politics, are replete with instances of bullshit so unmitigated that they can serve amoung the indisputable and classic paradigms of the concept." - Harry G. Frankfurt On Bullshit
Sometimes I wonder if an increased familiarity, on the author's part, with church might cause him to include it as an example of the 'classic paradigms of the concept."
here's to all your inner strains... (on Labor Day of all things)

that is quite a statement does that somehow mean that you are also ready to embrace the beauty of the eighties?

of course Paul
good take!
I'm just as annoyed that everything of value musically seems to come from that little island.
the crazy thing is I just can't seem to remember the last Soviet band I enjoyed. I'm sure there is one.
Now that's unfair I always get hockey and music mixed up

Dale, I'm sorry but I don't yet have the stomach or the will to start my own blog, but I will happily comment on yours. I bought that CD on my way out to Vancouver and listened to it five times straight. Beautiful stuff. I can't imagine how much you would like it if it had a smoking hot 80's style sax solo in it or something. Tee hee.
