The Cult of the New

How pompous and ridiculous to say: “So much newness can only be inferior, often resorting to gimmickry in its desperate quest.”

It’s like saying to a band — don’t produce any new stuff , just keep playing your old stuff over and over again because people shouldn’t like new stuff.

I’m no fan of mindless consumerism, but this sounds like an excuse for well.. just not producing any new stuff..
