"Ironically, new technology has reinforced the nostalgic cultural gaze:  now that we have instant universal access to every old image and  recorded sound, the future has arrived and it’s all about dreaming of  the past."
“In our Been There Done That Mashup Age, nothing is obsolete, and  nothing is really new; it’s all good. I feel as if the whole culture is  stoned, listening to an LP that’s been skipping for decades, playing the  same groove over and over. Nobody has the wit or gumption to stand up  and lift the stylus.”
