John T. Eckleburg reminds me of Wilhelm Reich

This is totally off topic, but as I recall, that is an option for blog posts.

For reasons even I can’t explain myself, John T. Eckleburg reminds me of Wilhelm Reich. Who the heck is Wilhelm Reich? Before I answerer that Play this here YouTube video.


I guess its just the way the short description of Eckleburg is written that made me think of this. Anyway that song (Cloudbusting)  was written as an ode to Wilhelm Reich by Kate Bush. To me both Eckleburg and Reich seem to radiate the feeling of men that knew infinitely more than you would have thought they would; who were both swept under the rug and forgotten with only the smallest of their marks left upon the world, when they were, in fact, striving to change it indelibly.
