Even our innovation has been stifled in recent years. We, as a species, used to aspire to go to the moon and beyond. Now the masses sit with their thumbs up their ***** waiting for the next iPhone. And they're happy. They're content with that.

Destruction is as prevalent as ever while creation has been cheapened and squelched to the point where it is difficult to find a relatable or significant artist any longer. I'm just not finding much beauty.
As terriawful as Justin Bieber and One Direction are, it does fall under preference again. Maybe some 12 year old girl finds all the meaning she needs in the world from them and uses it to create something beautiful of her own.

This is not me coming out as a closeted JB fan.

And yes, I need a cigarette too.
