Quote of the day...

As if she were speaking yesterday...

"People seem to insist on talking - and on carefully saying nothing. The evasiveness, the dullness, the gray conformity of today's intellectual expressions sound like the voices of men under censorship - where no censorship exists. ... The truth about the intellectual state of the modern world, the characteristic peculiar to the twentieth century, which distinguishes it from other periods of cultural crises, is the fact that what people are seeking is not the answers to problems, but the reassurance that no answers are possible."

- Ayn Rand

  1. Yup, a damn shame.

    I've bought my fair share from RG over the years, most by mailorder and lately via their website.

    The opening of their Christchurch store was a real bonus: a cool, retro-decorated oasis in the middle of the city, staffed by hep cats who were so laid back they were almost horizontal.

    [Their website is still taking orders.]
