Our Ironic Pleasures


One of many problems with so-called ‘guilty pleasures’ is they not only say "I like better music than you," but say "I like the same music better than you do." In doing so they claim a "correct" experience of art, which is to say an ironic one that denigrates any sincere truth another has taken from it.

It's also time to face facts, Steve: nobody else is coming to our intervention blog.
