Our teachers have failed to convey the truth to young people that Toto should be incinerated in an Orwellian memory hole so that we can get on with pretending they never existed.
Yes to this. I'm not one to criticize millenials, but I do when it comes to fucking TOTO.

Forgiveness of student loans must be attached to a full-throated rejection of Toto. This is non-negotiable!
Indeed!

I'm just about to start reading a student's short analysis of Sting's "Russians." I thought of you, probably getting as misty inspired as I'm going to be.

I'm so honored!

Since you aren't on FB or Twitter, you missed this post from two days ago:

Great. Scott has control of the stereo right now and Money for Nothing came on. I had to remind him that this song is not only problematic because of the gay slur but also because it features Sting.

Sting once tried to kill my friend Marcy’s dad. And he also tried to kill all of us with his solo career.


(I think I have told this story before, but my friend Marcy's dad was at some rainforest benefit and Sting cut in front of him in line at the bar and was generally very rude to her dad, a sweet little old man. So it's grown into this whole thing where I try to think of the most outrageous thing Sting did to her dad, like tossing him out of a ten story window or throwing acid in his face. Then Marcy usually responds with something like "No, no. He merely pulled the chair out from him before he sat down and yelled 'psych!'" or "Sigh. He didn't try to *kill* him. He merely stuck out his leg while Alps was walking by & yelled "have a nice trip!")

I remember you sharing that story. That Sting hasn't been put in the docket in The Hague is a travesty.

Also, the student analysis was so-so.

Also, you need to password-protect all your media devices to keep VH from having any control over them. If ever there were a "think of the children" situation, that is it.

What was the gist of the analysis?

And I will pay top dollar to make your suggestion happen.

Students were asked to consider a piece of music—song, album, concert—not in aesthetic terms but historic ones. That is, how could this music be used as a piece of historical evidence? The student placed the song in the context of, duh, the late Cold War and opposition to the Reagan administration. Weirdly so, given the lyrics are largely and more directly aimed at the Soviet Union. The one bit that I quite liked, and expanded upon his idea in my comments, is that compared to anti-war songs of the 60s, which were a lot more upbeat or angry, "Russians" is sombre and rather passive. I suggested that rather than rallying people, it's more begging those in power to do the right thing. In its own way, it's rather defeatist in terms of citizen power. I suggested thinking about that tone with regards to the peace movement in the 1980s—is that consistent or contrary?

What if he just turned in the paper with the following:

"This song sucks. Bring me the head of Gordon Sumner!"
