..::Isn't This Keane::..
here is a link to a sweet album http://www.keanemusic.com/ 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)
