“…in today’s New York, selling out is an economic necessity. Because of that, refusing to do so has become an even more romantic idea. We can’t live in the nineties, so we simulate them, with Polaroid cameras, vinyl records, or a notion to move to Detroit.”

“one thing i’d say about our cultural moment: people hate to argue, or even disagree. they don’t want to argue about politics, or art, or anything else, and the sheer fact that you disagree with someone threatens their self-esteem. now people do still want to insult and berate people but only in the company of other people who agree with themselves. no one wants to have an actual exchange.”
