New York Times vs. America and itself.

"The New York Times and other news organizations ought to think long and hard about whether a public's right to know in some cases might override somebody's right to live."
--Tony Snow, White House Press Secretary

"If America is going to wage a new kind of war against terrorism, it must act on all fronts, including the financial one."
--New York Times, 24 September 2001

Death By Song.

Paris Hilton's first song, "Stars Are Blind," is now out. I think that somewhere this event created a time/space rift in the cultural fabric of the planet, and whole communities could get sucked in. The end of Western civilization edges closer.

The tune was obviously designed to be catchy in a fluff pop way, but the drumbeat sounds like a cheap Casio keyboard, the lyrics are agonizingly banal ("Got a heart and soul in body / Let's see what this love can do / Baby I'm perfect for you") and her voice is so over-synthesized it might as well be a computer program singing.

But hypocritcally, I only expand the marketed-product-posing-as-a-real-person named Paris Hilton by wasting lines talking about it.

No links. Can't bring myself to provide that convenience.
