Thom Yorke / Four Tet / Burial: Mirror

Recall the cruel joke from Lubitsch’s To be or Not to Be: when asked about the German concentration camps in occupied Poland, the responsible Nazi officer “concentration camp Erhardt” snaps back: “We do the concentration, and the Poles do the camping.” Humor ist brutal und eine ernste Angelegenheit, so Žižek. Nach der kleinen Kostprobe glaub’ ich’s ihm auf’s Wort. Zitat aus: The Collected Jokes of Slavoj Žižek. Limited Edition of 1. Mickey Mouse Club 2011, S. 15.
