I can never remember that guys name (in public or private) who ranted that. I believe it was on Real Tie, and I know he is always wearing sunglasses., I’ll google that one, so I can really discuss more specifically during  lectures. Anyway, so I know there were some questions as to my statements at the lecture when I said “we lend intellectual and academic credibility to celebrity. and we should be hesitant to so easily intertwine”…Sorry I couldn’t site the specific academic credentials of some of our pop-culture icons, but after a quick google search I came up with this.
