Today, you are a member of… The Law of the Damn Fine Instrument

Here’s a chestnut members, given to us by the psychologist Abraham Maslow, born in Brooklyn on April 1st, 1908: It is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail. Though prized as the standard for identifying antipatterns, those inefficient, familiar as fuck everyday fall backs, Massy’s Law of the Instrument fails to take into consideration the fact of a damn fine tool. If you got it, it works, and it’s hella good-looking, why not bang on? This week members, don’t shy from your finely tuned, well-honed instrument.
