    Wow. From hi-there-all-you-nice-folks to death, domesticating fire ants, and the meaning of Huckleberry Finn, in 28 minutes. Once again, it’s worth watching Bruce chew tobacco and spit, then wind up and pitch dozens of fastballs for the finale. Thanks, Cory!

    The debatable assumption here being that art will matter at all in a post peak oil/water/soil/democracy/{yours} society.  “Art as varnish on barbarism” assumes a prosperous barbarism. An alt formulation might be art as flower on a healthy society: making art while the sun shines.

    Boring is right. This whole theme has been done to death. It is now devolving into the blather so evident in his tone.
