Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library: Brian's Ass Cheeks

To me it was a sense of gazing at something that's almost at the limit of what human beings can endure looking at, you know. I like that raw power, I like that sort of feeling that they were our Godzilla, that they stood up there, that they say "so what, you know, we're ugly, so what," you know. And they weren't, you know, because they were one thing one minute and they were another thing the other minute, you know. So you couldn't pass a judgment on them, you know. Those who would condemn them on an aesthetic basis were absolutely wrong because it depended so much on how close you were, or how far you were from them, whether you saw them in the late afternoon, whether you saw them in the morning, whether you saw them in winter, whether you saw them in summer. So there was always a different feeling about them.

i think you meant to say "condemn them on an ass-thetic basis"
