As Time Goes By

[This day and age we’re living in
Gives cause for apprehension
With speed and new invention
And things like fourth dimension.

Yet we get a trifle weary
With Mr. Einstein’s theory.
So we must get down to earth at times
Relax relieve the tension

And no matter what the progress
Or what may yet be proved
The simple facts of life are such
They cannot be removed.]

You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.

And when two lovers woo
They still say, “I love you.”
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by.

Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date.
Hearts full of passion
Jealousy and hate.
Woman needs man
And man must have his mate
That no one can deny.

It’s still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die.
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

Oh yes, the world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

A wonderful write-up available here.

Sighest … Bogart’s charm lives on.

de Sade

One of de Sade’s singularities is that he offers an absolutely sexualized view of the world, a sexualization that permeates everything, much as his atheism does and, since he is not a religious man but a political man, he treats the facts of female sexuality not as a moral dilemma but as a political reality.

In fact he treats all sexuality as a political reality and that is inevitable , because his own sexuality brought him directly against the law. He spent the greater part of his adult life in confinement because his own sexual tastes overrode his socialization; his perversion has entered the dictionary under his own name.

– Angela Carter in The Sadeian Woman and the Ideology of Pornography

I don’t know if its the thesis that’s getting to me.
But I find that last line hilarious.


All the same, I must say, I’ve never had such a love hate relationship with anything before, that is, before my thesis. Sigh.
