David Bowie's "The Next Day"

Sometimes I think the world is simply too stupid to even go to hell.

David Bowie creates a very bad song, and to hype his moribund career he makes a video with -- what else? -- lots of easy, trivial references to religious icons, being sure to insult every one of them in the process, though not in a clever way like he would have in his youth but in the crudest way possible.

And the insulted religions, who aren't the true religious people at all, completely fall for this stupidity -- because the only thing worse than being insulted is being ignored -- so they dutifully spout out their completely expected statements that serve their needs as well as Bowie's.

And we're all aupposed to be left aghast and stupid, beaten around the head, one of our eyes black, one ear swollen, our nose a little out of place but not far enough to justify surgey, left shaking our pitiful heads at these pitiful people who only want to sell a few more pitiful records and get a few more pitiful hits.

But the truth is we don't care at all, because this is the world these days, too stupid to get worked up about, but too boring for us to really care -- and we can't afford the surgery on our nose anyway.

And you wonder why the world is going to hell.

Blame these people.

A pox on all their houses.
