Quote Of The Day

2) Sampling – This pseudo-art makes shooting heroin and doing pushups look like composing The Rite of Spring. To make matters worse, sampling has the unique value-add of being able to ruin the original genius of the source material. It’s like music AIDS that songs can randomly catch after you know and love them.

Heh. (From a STREET BONERS and TV CARNAGE post about how photography is for jerkoffs.)

Quote Of The Day

In this love you are like a knife, with which I explore myself.
–Franz Kafka

(And have I ever mentioned my old love and obsession with Kafka? Reading not just his books and stories but his diaries, his notebooks? The only good thing I took from my schooling was The Metamorphosis, which probably did more to scrape the inside of my skull than any other book save perhaps Somerset Maugham’s The Razor’s Edge. I spent years on Kafka.

Which reminds me; I ought to go out to the garage and find that copy of The Trial….)
