floating head


"what is the meaning of a 'moral order of the world?' that there is a thing called the will of god which, once and for all time, determines what man ought to do and what he ought not to do; that the worth of a people, or of an individual thereof, is to be measured by the extent to which they or he obey this will of god; that the destinies of a people or of an individual are controlled by this will of god, which rewards or punishes according to the degree of obedience manifested. -nietzsche

1963


"Well, my telephone rang it would not stop
It's President Kennedy callin' me up
He said, "My friend, Bob, what do we need to make the country grow" ?
I said, "My friend, John, "Brigitte Bardot, Anita Ekberg, Sophia Loren"
Country'll grow."

secretary of the arts

A call for President-elect Barack Obama to give the arts and humanities a Cabinet-level post -- perhaps even create a secretary of culture -- is gaining momentum.

By yesterday, 76,000 people had signed an online petition, started by two New York musicians who were inspired by producer Quincy Jones. In a radio interview in November, Jones said the country needed a minister of culture, like France, Germany or Finland has. And he said he would "beg" Obama to establish the post.
