The Core Dump

A strong conviction that something must be done is the parent of many bad measures

[By Nic Lindh on Friday, 31 December 2004]

You can never look back

Way back in 1982, Don Henley released The Boys of Summer. Part of the lyrics go:

Out on the road today I saw a deadhead sticker
On a cadillac
A little voice inside my head said, don’t
Look back. You can never look back.

Was reminded of that sentiment just now as I was watching CNN and they led in to a sports section with, and I kid you not, Head Like a Hole [happy lyrics right here] by Nine Inch Nails.

A post modern finger raised by some intern in editing, or has NIN now become accepted by the Budweiser crowd?
