Listening to Alabama Shakes and Thinking About Things That Don't Matter to Anyone
So I'm listening to Alabama Shakes, which is a phenomenal band, and it occurred to me that I spend a lot of time thinking about things that just don't matter. I mean, let's be honest, who the fuck cares about imaginary concepts that have no real world application?
Me I guess.
What sort of things am I worrying my precious, little head about? Here's just a short sampling: the differences between classical feminists (of which I am one) and modern feminists (who I am completely mystified by); the validity of the Quantum Ogre debate; whether Spinoza was actually happy within his intellectual life or if he was shaken to his core by the inconsistencies in his thought; whether Socrates was real or just a fictional creation designed to explore philosophical concepts by the Greeks; and so on, and so on.
So what about you? What's got your mind grinding to dust?
