Still interested in this idea of scripts and filters, how it operates on myself mainly, hear a song, read a book, get a tip or hear a rumour and the rest of the day it could well be that every interaction or input from then on is coloured by that original source.
There's got to be more substance to life than this.
While I find society as a whole entertaining, politics are a subject I will likely forever be unknowledgeable in. There's no sense of the concrete in it, like trying to pin down an amorphous blob of gelatin.
Perhaps that is what draws people in. I'll stick to ignorantly despising conservative thought and blindly following whoever promises me cheap pudding.
What if the conservatives begin to promise cheap pudding?
I'm no conservative, well perhaps culturally or in mood, although some of their books are good. Not anything which was written recently though. Although you could say that for all political stripes.
I have no idea why people would pay so much (millions) for a painting. They have no practical/tangible value than artistic.
For a renaissance painting maybe, to hang in a museum maybe, but to hang on your wall? I would never understand why.
Interestingly, I heard recently that because of the recession, spending on expensive art has massively increased, as the super rich cannot find profitable destinations to invest their money. Artwork is seen as solid because it retains or increases its value over time.
