Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

I know what I like, too

Lileks on modern “art” and its paucity of imagination, craft, nobility, and — well, anything identifiable as actual art:

Then again, maybe we’re just dining on the last of the seed corn. It doesn’t take a belief in the divine to appreciate Bach. Does it take such a belief to be Bach? Or does a rational, secular society have no answer to Bach but the empty crystal kaleidoscopes of Phillip Glass?

Or if their answer is P Diddy, what comes after that?

Further cultural regression would be my guess, if that’s even imaginable at this point. But then, I say that as an inveterate old rock and roll lowbrow guy myself, so make of it what you will.
