    Cars

    I like driving but I really hate their presence. How every city plan is designed with the central concern of accomodating motor traffic. It's arrogant. Cars are invasive, brutal, noisy. Very few of them are nice looking anymore, they have no trace of human character in the design and a more...

    What is music writing 'cool' today?

    Music writers, at least the bulk of them, want mostly to be cool. What are the tenets of that 'cool' today? What are the beliefs and attitudes they conform to in order to be cool?
