Ordinarily, I would have not bothered to share this with the blog, but the comments regarding my previous post about public philosophy have me positively giddy. It's amazing how much people can claim to confidently discern about my character from a 75 word blog post! Anyway:
I was in Whole Foods last night, looking for a flithy hippy to date, and, when I walked in, the in-store radio was playing "Rainbow in the Dark" by Dio. As a lover of all things metal (except the music), I found this completely horrifying: the music with none of the awesomely diluting accoutrements. The Dio song was followed up by a Nick Drake song (fittingly hippy), and then-- get this-- "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell. It was like an entire weekend of VH-1, all wrapped up into a convenient 10 minute bite. Who says Whole Foods isn't a manipulative, demographics-driven, corporate Behemoth?
