Amused to Death

You do make giggle just a wee bit…

If you are reading The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky and simultaneously listening to Iron Maiden then something doesnt quite fit here. Attempts at pseudo-intellectualism should be better masked. If you are pledge your dubious legions to alternative music and are firmly unaware of Damon Albarn’s existence.

If you are singing paens of Pete Doherty but have never heard of the Libertines.

If you claim patronage to Dadaism but have never heard of the exhibition at Cologne or alternatively have never chanced upon Arp’s work. Art snobs must realise that practice makes perfect.

If you count The Alchemist as one of your favorite books and laugh at others who like Barbara Cartland. Odious comparison that but you are just as laughable.
