 Secular humanism is a bourgeois relic of the twentieth century. Get with the times, podman. You might want to actually read some aesthetic philosophy before you try to drop some science. Heidegger on authenticity has some very different ideas about your proposed communion. What else is there? How about the conditions of production in so-called developing countries as a starter? Your headphones world contributes to the problem. Solipsism cannot hang together. There is always the dirty world outside that rears its ugly head in the pop playground.

 Well I thought it was beautiful, Nick, philosophy and the bourgeoisie be damned.

 I've been meaning to go out to the forest preserve just before sundown with my minidisc player and to walk a certain freshly cut trail through the prairie grass, just to see how long it actually is and where it ends. I thought about loading an MD with the more somber, melancholic songs from the last 4 Sonic Youth albums, but I haven't been able to make a "perfect" playlist for that yet. I thought about playing some Shuttle358 or Gas but that's what I fall asleep to every night. I thought about Boards of Canada but I've had suspicions that I've been listening to those albums too much over the ppast 3 years anyway. So deciding on anything at all has been very difficult and much more of a pain than it should be. I get the feeling that even if I do take 2 or 3 different MDs, I'll get out there and not be happy listening to any of them. Such is the permanent discontentment of capitalism, I guess.
