I already consider myself responsible for a whole school of pretension. Really. I’m quite serious about that. The only thing that seems to shock anybody anymore is something that’s pretentious or kitsch. Unless you take things to extremes nobody will believe or pay attention to you. You have to hit them on the head and pretension does the trick. it shocks as much as a Dylanesque thing did ten years ago.
—David Bowie - Rolling Stone, 12 february 1976 (via ascoiris)
