Quote of the Day

“No creature on earth is more inclined to public verbal diarrhea than a modern American; whether it’s the AA culture, or the post–Me Generation emphasis on “finding yourself,” or all those neo–Woody Allens confessing to their therapists, or just too many damn people fantasizing about telling the audience of Oprah what influenced their latest album (“In the fourth track, I’m trying to share the sacred message of His Holiness the Dalai Lama…”), we live in a country where people believe implicitly in their right to bore the living shit out of absolutely everybody within haranguing distance with tales of their miserable, lonely, and inevitably self-deluding searches for personal fulfillment in the emotional desert that is our crass commercial culture.”
