"You seem to continue to assert that music has something to do with what is
said about it. I can't imagine folks actually being naive enough to believe
this kind of prattle, but selling a product is what it's all about, no?
Since we're in the free market age, we don't need a metanarrative because
you can't price it, rfid it, and replenish the inventory."

But isn't that what post-modernism is? Creating music based on what
will be said about it?
