about music . . .

who do you mean doesn't pay attention to music any more? I personally went through a period recently when I didn't care as much about music but now am listening to music anew. Dioynisus doesn't work for virgin, but a plastic statue of him may advertise.

It may seem like people don't pay attention to music these days, but instead the instant gratification of ipods have temporiarly made people who don't listen to as much music buy a lot and throw off the charts. ipods are more a status symbol more than a personal stereo, and there temporary significance also has the byproduct of bringing trival boring music (or necro-music) to the forefront.

Even during the music explosion this kind of music was being played but the public didn't pay attention to it then because they didn't want wallpaper music. Art too sells vodka and gasoline these days, but you don't talk about corporations use recently graduated art students to sell products, you focus on the artworld that makes no money. There's a world of that in music too, though to quote you "Transcendence isn't dead, it's just gone deeper underground."

Have you listened to your old catalog recently? I know you still love music since those songs reveal the mind of someone who loves music deeply, maybe you've just been a bit jaded by ipods and the industry in general.
