  • Quote for the week:

    "In most parts of our country men work, not for themselves, not as partners in the old way in which they used to work, but generally as employees, 'in a higher or lower grade' of great corporations. There was a time when corporations played a very minor part in our business affairs, but now they play the chief part, and most men are the servants of corporations." [Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom - A Call for the Emancipation of the Generous Energies of a People.]

    Continuing luck with your MySpace adventures!

    I'm looking for the impossibilist analysis of libertarian prog rock... where is it?!

    Darren said...

    You're looking at the wrong impossibilist, comrade.

    Analysis implies engagement, and my ears won't hear of it.

    *Does that joke make sense? Answers on a comment, please*

    Never mind your ears, what about your soul?!

    Darren said...

    I need to have soul to listen to Rush?

    God, they sound awful even before I hear a Neil Peart solo.

    Of course musical taste is a matter of objective fact, not subjective opinion, and I've checked, and you're just wrong. I shouldn't be surprised. Apart from your surprisingly good taste in novels, you're wrong about simply everything.... ;-)

    Darren said...


    my one redeeming feature is my taste in music.

    On the novel front, have you noticed that I started reading novels again? You can't go wrong with a good piece of crime fiction.

    I did notice Darren, and will try to read one of the ones you recommend one day. Only crime fiction I ever really did was Raymond Chandler who is wonderful.

    Darren said...


    go with Denise Mina's 'Garnethill Trilogy' for starters.

    Brilliant books. It's not so much the grisly aspect of crime fiction that I'm into, it's the fact that best fiction is character driven. And there's a bucketload of brilliant characters in all of Denise Mina's novels.
