90s and their persistence

I knew this back then but it's really only the persistent feeling that dance music, on purely cultural terms, ain't what it used to be (because "nothing is more revolting that the sight of the inheritors of the earth enjoying themselves"), that caused me to lose confidence and start reading Pitchfork almost a decade ago in the vain hope that there was something good I was missing. That's when the real dejection set in.

(Also - writing like what I linked to above used to be published! Just another...!)
