Deep Thoughts

In his diary entry for October 8, 1995, Brian Eno may have hit on something truly profound: “Starting to think that all the world’s major problems can be solved with either oyster sauce or backing vocals.”

Or…did he? I mean, oyster sauce is great and all, and backing vocals pretty much made Dark Side of the Moon what it is, but something’s not quite right about this formulation.

So, if I may be so bold—after all, unlike Mr. Eno, I’m neither an influential theorist nor a particularly innovative artist, and I don’t (yet) have an asteroid named after me—I’d like to offer a slight edit: “All of the world’s problems—major or otherwise—would go away entirely if more people listened to the Grateful Dead.”

There. That’s better.
