How The Light Gets In

Yesterday's post was devoted to cultural events I will attend over the next week or so. Today's is about one I definitely won't. "The World's Largest Music & Philosophy Festival" is an absurd idea.

I like rock 'n roll music but I can't be doing with rock 'n roll philosophy. Similarly I am unconvinced by Scott Woods assertion that the work and statements of some of our favorite MCs line up quite comfortably alongside philosophy’s greatest — and most notorious — minds. The Lil Wayne: Friedrich Nietzsche connection, for example continues to elude me.

Have fun when Rowan Williams supports Gruff Rhys on Sunday. I will be in my local watching Man City v Chelsea.
