A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
adjective: Wild; frenzied; uncontrolled.
[After Corybant, an ancient priest of Phrygian goddess Cybele, who performed wild ecstatic dances in her worship.]
"The radio is nothing but a conduit through which pre-fabricated din
can flow into our homes. And this din goes far deeper, of course, than
the eardrums. It penetrates the mind, filling it with a babble of
distractions, blasts of corybantic or sentimental music, continually
repeated doses of drama that bring no catharsis, but usually create
a craving for daily or even hourly emotional enemas."
It is often forgotten that (dictionaries) are artificial repositories, put together well after the languages they define. The roots of language are irrational and of a magical nature. -Jorge Luis Borges, writer (1899-1986)
