Diaries Music

The music that we hear these days sounds like something that our favorite artists would produce if they had hit their head and suffered some significant head trauma. There’s something there; there’s an inkling of interestingness, but it is largely dull and stupid.

Of course this applies to the music that is forced upon me by the public areas that I frequent. I am well aware that there is a world full of quality musicians and artists who are making wonderful music but it is not hitting my ears directly very often.

Why is this surprising to anyone? The best things you can’t even find on streaming video. I feel sorry for those who are limited to watching what you find on streaming video services.

The root of the problem, if you care or are otherwise interested

Check out @profwolff’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/profwolff/status/1029053971627892736?s=09

This references an article I wrote about previously:

Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change – The New York Times

As Mr. Wolff points out, the New York Times continues its seemingly proud tradition, one it shares with plenty of other purveyors of truth, of stopping short of assigning blame where it is due and responsibly questioning the premises of this situation.
