Well, actually, because I think I'm done with dissecting culture that once drew me to this place. And I think that comes with age. The passage of time is the best filter and the best curator.
Life's too short to waste it reverse engineering music, feelings, and emotions. It be what it be. If I like a movie or music it's cause I fucking like it. I feel feelings because I do, and that's all the reason and analysis I need. And all the shit that I used to think I liked because I dissected them and broke them down into reasons why I liked them are no longer true. This forum serves as a historical reminder of that.
The things that I loved viscerally and irrationally 10-15 years ago are the things I love viscerally and irrationally today. Most of what I liked because I dissected, debated, argued, and analyzed holds nothing for me ten years later. There is no debate, no convincing, no argument.
The underlying premise of this place: discussion and analysis fundamentally holds no value for me anymore. Too academic and being academic is an itch I no longer have.
So the question then is: why am I here? Well I like knowing what new albums are coming out, but that's about it...
