So, a new video today.
Those who know and tolerate me also know that I was unceremoniously booted from a Ph.D. program in history from a certain University in New England (I was A.B.D. at the time, btw. The term “b*st*rds” does spring to mind).
I’ve never forgiven the professors responsible, but as time has gone on, and I’ve realized how awful life in the academy has become in recent years…I’ve actually begun to wonder if they did me a favor.
This video is a brief meditation on that. It involves an individual who discovers that, after all, maybe being successful in life is rather more pleasurable than being the victor in a great game of Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf.
