Isn't Girl talk (the music group) ...

a musical omen? People used to sit down and listen to entire albums straight through. Then people made mix tapes of a related group of 10 songs. Then they had playlists of hundreds of songs on computers. You can probably shuffle through your ipod right now between beethoven, the beatles and notorious BIG. Girl talk takes advantage of our narrowing attention span by mashing 100s of songs into an album in brilliant ways. Will the soundtrack of our future lives be mood sensitive, so based on the galvanic skin response a different tune will pop into the speakers installed into our ears?
