"Taste classifies the classifier. Mumu classifies the moomintroll."
Sunday, February 1, 2009
We wish to announce that February is the most tasteful month. It successfully avoids the pitfalls of the pessimistic Fall months. (November's depression is unpleasantly reminiscent of Centralia or Shelton in the 1990's.) It manages not to reflect the unbridled enthusiasm of the Spring months. And, while Summer's sultry and painfully hot sensuality is highly popular, popularity is certainly no good measure of tastefulness.
February may not be popular. February may not be sexy (unless you are into sweaters and tights). February may not be an up-and-coming band with dirty bass.
But February is sufficiently distinctive (frigid!) and not too riotous.
