The best video on the Internet featuring Susan Sontag and Camille Paglia
This is THE best video on the Internet. It is surreal, it is filled with attitude and if you listen closely, starting at 2:36 you will here the fastest off the cuff utterance of the phrase “since I’m so smart” that has ever been recorded. I do not view the video as part of any legitimate conversation, but as an art piece unto itself, a song that has yet to be written.
“Did I really say it, you mean do I really say it of course I did say it what a way to ask me did I really say something that Entertainment Weekly reported. Yes I really did say it.
Excuse me are we not speaking English…listen I don’t read Entertainment Weekly why don’t you ask me a direct question, excuse me.”
CAMILLE PAGLIA: Sontag is Sontag is gone she I mean I’m so happy she came out of hiding I have been talking about Sontag sinceimsosmart from my rise to fame for the last three years right no one is interested.
For further artistic reflection, see the official youtube transcript below, a truly artistic and further non-sensical rendition of a non-sensical conversation. “Isn’t wind in my memory”? “I’m like one of a series of vacuum and carpet you wanted”
The transcript even suggests bringing out a turntable, which is much needed for this particular video clip.
