Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne “sees an existentialist dilemma in Tibet’s situation”

After playing Tibet House’s annual benefit this year, Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne is wondering about Tibet’s situation. According to Spinner, he’s said of Tibet House (and, presumably, its mission to preserve Tibetan culture):

“I’m not going to put it down — these are humane peaceful people trying to do something. That being said, if I had been oppressed for [this long], I think I’d just accept it and say ‘Who gives a s—?’” …Yes, that does sound bleakly negative and resigned, but Coyne turns his view to himself and qualifies things: “Kind people that make the world a better place, but I don’t know if I’m like that.” (More, via Spinner, here.)

Whether Wayne’s in for next year or no remains to be seen, but Tibet House still could benefit from your help and attention. Check out them here.
