"I'd never been there... It's just a metaphor. I like division."

Said Lou Reed, talking about Berlin.

I have four children.

I prefer multiplication.

Man, what age does to us all.

This is the first picture I've seen of Lou in a long time, and he looks like a monkey. Especially with the dyed hair.

I used to liste to Lou alot in my art school days, but now find his stuff just too morbid to reconcile with having 3 kids. I still love Laurie Anderson though. She can be quite dark, but usually playful...

From the Rolling Stone 'counter review' of Berlin:

“prettiness has nothing to do with art, nor does good taste, good manners or good morals.”

Pretty much sums up a lot of problems with modern art right there, doesn't it? I mean, if it doesn't even know what standard it is supposed to be transgressing, how can it be intellegible?

"What are you rebelling against?" "Whatta ya got?" indeed...

TW: After me an me droogs left the Korova milk bar, we went out for a bit of the old ultra uzgrooq.

Follow up question. "Division. That's great Lou. So what do the colored girls say?"

(For any pop culturally ignorant folks -- "colored" is not a label I use or would use normally. -- Troy's PC superego)

Can you spell pretentious twaddle?

Transformer was a great album. This one sucked.

Lou Reed hasn't figured on my cultural horizon for 20 years. Exactly like Billy Joel.
