This is ironic timing, since if I weren’t already seeing someone, I could probably fly to London to comfort Lennox in her time of need, inevitably becoming romantically involved with her, thus taking the first practical step toward my teenage goal of living in a super-high-tech skyscraper aerie in a stable, three-partner relationship with Lennox and the singer Sade, possibly accompanied via time travel by a young Lauren Bacall (nineteen [!] in this clip and already more woman than any actress active today). Or maybe Sheila E.
Again, I never claimed to be a feminist, but I don’t think you can accuse me (as some responders to my anti-feminism post did) of wanting mere wallflowers or mindless cheerleaders. In the fantasy, of course, these women all liked philosophy, too. No regrets, though.
P.S. To get back on the good side of any offended leftists, I offer my favorite environmentalist-misanthropic rock video as atonement: World Party’s “Ship of Fools.”
