IF YOU MEET AN AUDIO REVIEWER
ON THE ROAD, KILL HIM
Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise. Seek what they sought.
Read this book: If You Meet Buddha on The Road, Kill Him, by Sheldon Koop, because:
Removing the head of Priest of Old Audio Testament
The cosmology of the Old Testament was based on an existential bogusity: a view of the audio universe that has the audio reviewer in the position of the ego-centric Sun. Sun worshipping is an ancient religion and still is practiced on bikini clad beaches all over the world but this inaccurate view of the cosmos is obsolete..
For three decades everyone manufacturers, retailers and consumers revolved around the Sun God/audio review. This model is lethal and why atrophy, fear and boredom rules the Old Testament of the audio arts.
Who rightly belongs at the center of the audio cosmos? YOU, the Gifted Listener. It is time for to move to the center of the audio cosmos, and displace the audio reviewer.
(NOTE: Don't worry about what audio reviewers will do with their time after they are displaced. There is an enormous demand for men who can express their creative feelings about brown paper bags)
YOU BELONG IN THE CENTER OF THE AUDIO UNIVERSE BECAUSE: (1) your adventure of discovery is far more exciting than boring audio reviews (2) the audio arts exist to serve your need to get as musically high as possible, (3) you are the only authority on your ecstasy which is as unique and eccentric as your signature. (4) your trip of discovery is much more interesting than boring, boring, boring audio reviews.
SHALL I SAY THIS ANOTHER WAY?: THE HIGHEST WISDOM ABOUT THE AUDIO ARTS IS YOUR COLLECTIVE WISDOM..AND NOW IT IS YOUR TRIBAL RESPONSIBILITY TO INSPIRE YOUR BROS'.
Do you have any sense of how FEAR rather than INSPIRATION is the operating principal of the Old Audio Testament, and how moving you to the center transforms this negative dynamic?
Does it surprise you that I am describing the universe of the Japanese audiomaniac? How soon will this revolution reach maturity? At the speed of your boredom with the obsolete model, and at the intensity of your desire for deeper ecstasy.
I READ THIS LIST ONCE A DAY

An Eschatological Laundry List:

- You can't have anything unless you let go of it.
- You only get to keep what you give away.
