I've been here a bit... Not as long as some, but longer than many.
Life is so strange.... Call me what you will, but just tonight, my wife, companion of twelve years introduced me to Lou Reed. Mind you, I am not a
"music" person. I found the music quite relevant. I discovered that he was the originator of "Sweet Jane", a song I have always attributed to
Cowboy Junkies... I love the song nonetheless.
All that aside, I just listened to Lou Reed's greatest hits.. (according to youtube), and just loved the hell out of it.
All of this has led me to believe that there are no new ideas left in the world... It has all been done. We are living on "repeat", only the copy
gets worse as it is re-uploaded. Nothing is original. We are simply copies of copies of copies.... We are being uploaded to the collective memory,
but in a degenerated form.
It is all maddening.. It would seam that there is no original thought.. Only perturbations on original ideas. Music is a perfect example.. Music
was once a science of the soul, now the science is known and they use it to manipulate the soul.
There are other references, musically that lead me to believe this..
I have loved so many reinterpretations of older music... Ministry did a version of Lay Lady Lay that i thoroughly enjoy far more than the original.
My wife loves the originals of all music, but for me, I generally enjoy remakes.
I don't know, It just seems that somebody needs to "feel" something, write about it, and if it is relative then it is renowned.
However, the caveat here is that these things were discerned long ago, and we are ignorant if we don't acknowledge the past through the music,
poetry, art, or writings of the times.
It truly seems that the book of Ecclesiastes holds true...
For the record, I'm no bible-thumper.. That particular book seems to hold true for whoever reads it. It is so sensible.
I don't know what the point of all of this is, and I don't really care, but I would like to talk about it.
We are all human after all. I value the opinions of humans who realize they are human.
