Simians Building Podiums.

I read somewhere tonight that the actor Bill Nighy came high on somebody’s best dressed man chart. (Bill Nighy’s birthday is two weeks after mine, by the way.)

That’s ridiculous. People wear whatever they’re comfortable wearing. What they wear reveals who they are or how they see themselves, and is open to infinite variation. There’s no such thing as ‘best dressed.’

Why do human cultural monkeys have to make everything competitive? So they can have an excuse to be judgemental?

I read "the actor Bill Nighy became high," and was intrigued.

"Hey kids. Don't buy drugs. Become an actor, and they give you them for free!"

I remember the line. And this is one big difference between Bill Nighy and me: I've been accused of lots of things, but being well dressed was never one of them. Clothes always look best on tall, lean people, so I never bothered.
