You all require programming. You are used to it. You are told what classes to take, what foods you should eat, what clothes you should wear, what songs you should listen to, what colors you should like, what professions you should seek, what salaries you should want, what boyfriends you should date, what books you [...]

Well well well, what a gift from the music gods this was. Apparently I thought I was special yesterday when I received the new Daft Punk ”Random Access Memories” album in an email, but of course all you music heads were right there with me.
