Patti Smith gave a commencement speech at Pratt Institute on Monday night:
“I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to talk about: Moby Dick, the slaves of Michelangelo, Hans Hoffman, My Bloody Valentine, but now that I’m here, my greatest urge is to speak to you of dental care. My generation had a rough go, dentally.”
Listen to the whole speech here. No one is wiser, funnier, or cooler.
