"Reality is me. Reality is you. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah."

Or so sings the man who can make smoking a cigarette look so cool, he's personally responsible for a measurable percentage of smoking related mortalities since 1996. Who am I referring to? Well, here's another clue:

What do Bart Simpson, Beck, Van Morrison and Leonard Cohen have in common?

The answer, as The Guardian writes, is depressing. The Guardian also draws comparisons between bands and sects, with specific reference to The Fall.

PS: Isn't it interesting that Scientology (you've guessed it) got to the two most popular vehicles of satire on TV today, namely South Park (via Isaac Hayes) and The Simpsons (via Nancy Cartwright)? Coincidence? Probably.

I know! It fucked me up. At least it was just a short stint, kinda like trying on a new shirt.
