pop will eat itself. i predicted for a long time that the internet would be a big, stinking deal when there was finally a pop song about it. sure enough, destiny’s child did a song that has a line about “some girl trashing me on the internet.” that;s funny, but the thing that’s peculiar about it is there was always a dark side. there was always the porn/mafia/drug dealer/pedophilia aspect — the four horsemen of the apocalypse.
its [the internet] is also peculiarly carnal. in the early days of cyberspace, we were going to escape the meat. well, there is more meat on the internet than you can imagine. there are acres and acres of people just pointing cameras at their bodies.
