RSS icon Comments on The Deterioration of an Image (NSFW)


You're a wonder.

I think Moby's appropriation of the image is saying something. It says that he is bored by Hendrix. He is bored by the canon of rock music. He is bored by sex (and drugs and rock 'n' roll). It is something of an arrogant statement, but I think there is a lot of meaning in it.

I like the NSFW warning in the headline. Cracked me up.

"I think Moby's appropriation of the image is saying something."

He's gay?

Not to be the grammar and usage police, but is Moby really "disinterested" (i.e., a neutral or impartial observer with no opinion)? Or is he "uninterested"? (i.e., bored or lacking interest)?

j-lon, i used disinterested to reference kant's definition of beauty. if i had used uninterested, which is grammatically better, it would have cost me the kantian echo.
