PIZZICATO FIVE It's a Beautiful Day PV

Twenty years ago!!! Ain't it funny, how time slips right on away?

I could go on and on about how great this P5 stuff is, how great their videos are, but there's a law of diminishing returns involved, you know? At some point we must realize that the world just does not value what we value. The world has it's own things to do. And finally, tragically, we must accept that the world would rather listen to Taylor Swift or some shit. The world has moved from post-modern, up through post-ironic, and all the fucking way to post-talent. Sad, isn't it?

We who have been paying attention since the Korean War must accept that in today's post-everything world Shaun Combs is a fashion designer, Kim Kardashian is a celebrity, Miley Cyrus is attractive, Donald Trump is a politician, James Franco is a renaissance man, and Kanye West is intelligent. It was always true that money talked, and bullshit walked, but it was never as ridiculously true as it is today.

Free Advice (and worth every penny): Keep your heads down and don't do anything to piss off the powers that be. Seek and enjoy as many of these cultural treasures as you can, but don't go shooting your mouths off about them. (Liking things and listening to them free has probably been written into the criminal code by now.) Maybe we should all be using an anonymous browser like Tor so it's harder to follow our transgressions.

Otherwise I'll just see you up at the concentration camp. Cultural misfits; atheists; race-traitors; socialists; homosexuals (and their apologists). Let's make the best of it.
