    Hang on, he just said I was more stylized and self aware than Paglia (who I really like, as it goes). That's some of the highest praise he has ever given me!

    Maybe because it always laced with lacerations of destructive mockery

    interestingly, and i doubt this is a coincidence, neither you nor padraig (U.S) have ever 'broken on thru
    to the other side'

    Was just thinking

    Is it possible to hear in the music of today what in the future will sound quaint?

    is it not usually the state of the art that dates first?

    autotune? although that's already persevered far longer than it's had any right to.

    This concept was hovering around me last night as I listened to jazz in the park

    I started off with some john coltrane or something and it was very jazzy - and I realised that I couldn't hear that sort of jazzy jazz without being repelled by the kitsch that's accreted around it (through no fault of its own). That's a time barrier. Never such innocence again.

    And the more out there experimental stuff, even, seems laughable because I'm aware of the stereotype of the self-indulgent jazz wanker, prodded into orgasm by the sound of a brass cat being strangled by a drum kit.

    BUT the less jazzy jazz sounds the easier it is for my modern ears to swallow.

    I'm sure many people have the same barrier with classical. It's kitsch to them, 'dentist's music' as Crowley said. I don't have that problem with classical music at all but I do have it with jazz.
