In the ancient Greek myth about Prometheus, the trickster Titan steals fire from the gods of Olympus to deliver to humankind. As punishment, Zeus chains the immortal Prometheus to a rock and compels a bird of prey (sometimes an eagle, other times a vulture) to eat his liver, which always grows back the next day. It’s a vision of eternal torment, just like Sisyphus pushing a boulder endlessly up a hill or George Orwell’s immortal image of a boot stomping on a face for all eternity.
We are all Prometheus, and Chris Brown is the liver that keeps growing back.”
One of two things is true: Either Chris Brown is secretly meta and actively trying to make the worst decisions possible as part of his commitment to “art” (if this is true, then he’s Andy Kaufman-level brilliant and definitely advanced), or he genuinely doesn’t care what other people think.
And if he doesn’t care, why should we?”
“It doesn’t mean we’re gonna make up, or even talk again. It just means I didn’t want to object to the judge…We don’t have to talk ever again in my life.”
