“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

As I type this entry, the Nelly Furtado video for her "Promiscuous" single is on the teeve and theres a bit where she drops a line about Steve Nash and his MVPism. Cracks me up every effin' time I hear it. If there's ever a way to automatically give your art a shelflife, refer to something that's not only relevant this year but also this season of basketball. Well, it could be argued that Nash is MVP two years in a row (thus adding to the longevity of that referrence in her song), but you get my meaning. Beautiful girl, that Nelly Furtado. Kooky with the lyrics, but beautiful.
Yeah, alright - these took longer than 90 minutes. But I had to pretty them up because people are actually paying money for them. I don't know how many of these things I've got in me - they take time and actual thought to do; I'm in serious defecit in both categories. Har!
"NELLY: Hey is that the truth or are you talking trash? Is your game M.V.P. like Steve Nash?"
