LOL. I'm writing this project at uni (art history) about the strategies behind totalitarian propaganda and less obvious manipulation, with focus on visual art. Cases: The Third Reich, Soviet, Denmark today.

I had a (mandatory) meeting with my supervisor in that regard, about how to get around that subject in the most convincing way. The thing is, that I hadn't written anything at the time of the meeting, and thus tried to dodge the essence with a seemingly (read: Not very) relevant question:

Me: "Can I start every chapter with a quote?"
Professor: "Yes, but that's not extremely important at this point. How far are you with the iconographic analyses?"
Me: "Not far."
Professor: "The socio-historical introduction?"
Me: "I know what to write, but haven't done so yet."
Professor: "H, you can't put icing on a cake before you have one - start baking!"

All was said in a friendly tone, because he is a very friendly and extremely competent guy - who also happens to spot when people try to dodge. That's a good thing in general, and ironically relevant, my chosen subject considered. So, I was busted, but I appreciate and admire when people in a superior position can cut through crap without being intimidating and arrogant.

Have a great weekend, everyone. :-)
