The Autonomy of Art

I was reading something today. Yes, I read sometimes… in the bathroom.

Anyway, I was reading today and some very smart person paraphrased Nietzsche saying something like, “we should neither corrupt the actual way our thoughts come to us, nor turn one’s ideas into a system.”

Now, I’m not exactly sure about the point this particular very smart author was making with his recount, but it did make me think about advertising. I wonder what Nietzsche would have thought about what I do for a living.

Hmmm…

I think Nietzsche would have either been the very best or the most unsuccessful ad guy to have ever lived.

Later, I looked through a picture-article about Kate Bosworth. Kate Bosworth does not make me think about advertising.
