Business Instead of Game

Beyond good and evil -- beyond good taste and bad taste, even -- the world is to be redeemed only through the act of aesthetic creation.

And with that I give you something sublime. Or that leaves me speechless, anyway:

Unlike some people, I have no problem at all with the recycling of lyrics about Mr. Wallace. As Amelie Gillet writes:

I mean, a tribute is a tribute, right? Lyrics like, "Seems like yesterday we used to rock the show/ I laced the track, you locked the flow/ So far from hangin on the block for dough/ Notorious, they got to know that" are universal. Really, everyone should be memorialized with a 7-minute song that Diddy very specifically wrote about one particular person.

We should all be so lucky. Still, some tweaking may be in order at times. At the moment I feel like singing.

Seems like yesterday we used to rock the show
I laced the track, you locked the flow
So far from hangin on the block for dough
KnowwhatI'msayin, Teddy Adorno....
