The World's Stupidest Quote
From one of the world's biggest assholes, Dick Clark:
"Music is the soundtrack to your life."

Nothing pisses me off like lazy sloganeering and this is probably the assiest kind; a cling-film-thin tautology from a cling-film-faced man. Contemporary sloganeering is totally dependent on a basic tautological premise of saying that "something is a thing that it is" and because it's basically true then it seems profound, right? It's bullshit in the truest sense of bullshit. Bullshit (paraphrasing Martin Amis): abject or inferior object or subject with the intent to deceive. Dick Clark, you're a liar and inferior.
Thank you for that analysis Discourse. I needed to read someone ripping Dick apart. I think the main thing that pisses me off about that quote is that it's written all over the walls of his shitty family restaurants (aside: Dick Clark's Food, Spirits and Fun....is the worst fucking name...) as if it's some kind of profound wisdom about life. And you know some shithead hopped up on spirits, and dumbed down from eating greasy Dick burgers is gonna read that and go: "shit man, I'm gonna remember that shit!" And then one day, he's gonna wind up at some fancy cocktail party/charity benefit where he's trying to make a good impression -- and inevitably someone will bring up the subject of music and blammo -- bad impression -- cut to: The guy at the edge of a cliff at sundown cursing Dickie C.
You see how dangerous this shit is?!!!
hey, all he's saying is that the music that you listen to when you're living your life, is kindof like if you had a tape recorder or movie camera and ...the sountrack was playi.....oh god, it IS fucking stupid(have gotten big laughs every time in the scene from Bowling for Columbine)
Well, Dick has a big dick.
