Randomly found this while google-fishing for information about David Bowie’s “Quicksand” (from “Hunky Dory”, 1971). What I was looking for isn’t relevant (though it’s worth noting that the above link actually points to the acoustic “demo” version, which is way better than the album version).
What I found was a college commencement speech by David Foster Wallace, some author I’ve never heard of and none of whose work I’ve ever read. Going to have to correct that in the near-future however. Always feel a little embarrassed in a hippy-dippy sort of way when some random shit on the internet knocks me on my ass, but there it is: it happened. Check it out – well worth reading.
