Real, Honest-to-God Insanity

Jamiroquai's Jay Kay: not Pol PotThe Guardian’s given over space to Jamiroquai’s Jay Kay so he can vent his disjointed, rambling thoughts:

It would be nice to step back in time a bit. Walk out of the door, see somebody, smile and say, ‘Good morning, how are you?’ We’ve totally lost that in this country, that sense of politeness.

If you’re buying a second-hand car, get the AA to check it out.

I’ve been wearing hats since I was around 17. My first one was an upturned bag that I got from Oxfam. I just took a shine to it.

He ends strong, though, pointing out that he’s better than Pol Pot. How fucked is your self esteem if you have to go all apples and oranges? Even his Wikipedia entry is “disputed” for having anything nice to say about him at all. Being the Silverchair of “electronica” can’t be that bad, can it?

(Also, did he mean to say you should have AAA check a used car? Or is that how people in Britain refer to AAA instead of, say, BAA?)
