Ellis on irony
Josh Ellis emerges from an extended bout of pissyness with a post on irony in modern music. I may disagree with some of the instantiations of his argument, but overall I think his point is well made. And he hates Dashboard Confessional, so he's automatically cool. Give it a read.

Typical of social scientists. Tell us something that most normal humans already know via experience and common sense, and then claim to have "recently discovered" it. Brilliant. I heard a study on the radio today driving into Atlanta done by sociologists at the University of Leicester (in England). These geniuses discovered that the kind of music played in restaurants can be correlated to the amount of money spent at the restaurant. No, really? So restaurants that play Mozart tend to be fancier than restaurants that rotate Britney Aguilera?
