Atheism and Light Music

This morning Ed Hudgins talked about "the new atheism."  It was a good talk about contemporary writers.

In the atheism of old
God got black-holed.
In the atheism of new
it's still true.

This evening Jesse Knight spoke on "light music" with lots of educational examples.  As he mentioned, it's a modern movement, and I took away the impression it was a kind of reaction to the anti-melodic and anti-happy tendencies in 20th century "serious music."

Suppress a demand
and one thing is clear:
what is banned
will reappear.
