Drop Pop Culture, Some Say

Miles Davis–why bother with any of it–Jazz, modern musicians, dope addicts, punks–Monk, crooks, killers, Bud Powell, Dizzy’s razor and Dizzy’s scorn & Al Sublette’s scorn–no. Give me the Bodhi men. Don’t even play the radio anymore, jazz is simpleminded noise. BOYCOTT IGNORANCE.

–Jack Kerouac, Some of the Dharma

“Why do you read novels? All books that do not give the word of God are just a trash.”

–Swami Prabhavananda to Christopher Isherwood, in Isherwood, My Guru and His Disciple
