‘Trans-Humanism’…

***

Let the vinyl saga… Stand as a legacy… For technology… The new Cee-Dee’s would be cheaper… Which they weren’t… Cheaper to produce… Yes… And bigger profit margins… For the supplier… But were these passed on to the consumer… No, they were not… So the new Cee-Dee’s were not cheaper… But the new Cee-Dee’s will be indestructible… Which they weren’t… In many cases they lasted… Less long than the old vinyl albums… Which even when scratched… Were for the most part listenable too… Not so the new Cee-Dees… When they got scratched… They ceased to work… Period.

***

The new Cee-Dee’s will sound better… Which they don’t… Even the remastered versions… From the original acetates… Do not sound as good… As vinyl… The vinyl sound… Has depth and nuance… The Cee-Dee sound… Is by comparison… Flat… And ‘tinny’… The new Cee Dees will be easier to transport… And store… Well, that’s probably the only aspect of the sales pitch… Which actually holds up… The new Cee-Dee’s were easier to transport… And store… They weren’t as enjoyable to handle… Though… Like real books… Whose pages… Soak up sweat… And what we might term.. Psychic atmospheres…

Versus… Electronic reading matter… Their cardboard covers… Did likewise… So much so… That there really is… No viable comparison… Even in the packaging… The headlong rush to de-sensualise… Our lived experience… Is doomed… To failure… And yet… It continues… At a pace… The technocrats… Think they are creating… A supra-human… Otherwise known… As a god… But ‘god’ is our source… So, what they are really… attempting to create… Is just another step… Away from that source… Which means… It will be even more… Difficult to access… Than it already is… Nice one, guys… Not.

We'd love to hear from you...
