Extraordinary Discourse 171

Business As Usual NOT

An artist today is never working. He’s
doing what he [sic] wants to do. He’s playing and he’s at leisure at all times,
especially when he’s working hardest. This one of the peculiarities of our
time. The old world of the job, this is neolithic; the world of the job, little
fragmented specialist tasks, is no longer bearable.
Marshall McLuhan,
Contemplating Me
