Man Ray, The Cramps, Art and Outrage


People are always outraged.

Everyone wants to boycott things.

I’m not even sure if I totally understand this quote by Man Ray, but I support it:

“Each one of us, in his timidity, has a limit beyond which he is outraged. It is inevitable that he who by concentrated application has extended this limit for himself, should arouse the resentment of those who have accepted conventions which, since accepted by all, require no initiative of application, And this resentment generally takes the form of meaningless laughter or of criticism, if not persecution. But this apparent violation is preferable to the monstrous habits condoned by etiquette and estheticism.”

It was on the inside of a CD by The Cramps.

It was called Flamejob.

But don’t be outraged by things, being outraged will turn you into a human queef.
