Happy Belated 40th Birthday

For better or for worse, yesterday marked the 40th anniversary of the publication of Guy Debord’s, Society of the Spectacle.

Or, as Bill Brown of NOT BORED! infamy said:

It was 40 years ago today
Guy Debord taught the band to play
He’s been going in and out of style
But he’s guaranteed to raise a smile
So let me introduce to you
The act you’ve known for all these years. . .
