    The bearded chocolate makers are getting the business from the New York Times, Vox and Washington Post and the big food blogs like Grub Street and Eater. They have nearly a decade of quotes that now sound extra rich, like "We are a dangerous company because we are outsiders to the chocolate industry...". The product they were promising, delicious chocolate bars from single batches of cacao with few additives can only produce a truly awful chocolate bar and takes a ton of work to make just a few hundred bars at a time. Then they appear in upscale shops all over the country in super luxurious packaging. The chocolate experts had described their $10.00 bars as barely edible chalk.

    They're disrupting the chocolate industry--so of course the establishment feels threatened.

    ∂ R&A: That searching for the path isnít like Kerouacís search for Godís face, is it?

    Rexroth: Look, thatís all a lot of talk. You donít become a saint until you lead a good life whether in Tibet or Italy or America. When the hipster picks this up, he cheapens it. I donít like hipsters. The hipster is a louse on jazz ... a mimic of jazz and Negroes who believes the Negro is born with a sax in his mouth and a hypodermic in his arm. Thatís despicable. In jazz circles itís what they call Crow Jimism.

    I have been following a new forum and slowly figuring out some of the good posters and lousy ones and tracking all the mega-beefs and other stuff. Some guy at this new forum has a deal where he sees all music through a lens of what hipsters think of it. Every single post is "Hipsters are into this because....." or "Hipsters think this is......" Like the whole history if music gets thrown into a prism of what hipsters think. Its the most miserable way to think of music that I've read in a long time.

    Sounds brilliant. Where is this 'new forum' of which you speak?
