He was like a man who wanted to change all; and could not; so burned with his impotence; and had only me, an infinitely small microcosm to convert or detest. John Fowles

Not really.

As with my moral and political values, uprooted subjectively in the year I spent in Vietnam, my taste in music was uprooted subjectively in a particular experience I had in the late 70s or early 80s.

I was lying on my recliner fiddling with the radio dial. I was down at the left end of the FM band. There you'd get mostly classical and jazz music. We'll, one night I was down there when I heard three songs in succession 1] enola gay by omd, 2] transmission by joy division and 3] underpass by John Foxx.

Welcome to the "overnight express" hosted every friday and saturday from midnight until dawn by lee michael dempsey and marc farre on WAMU in Washington.

Music I had never heard before. "New Wave" it turned out to be called. That led me to WCVT out of Towson State University where in a late night program called "all hours" I was introduced to experimental music, ambient, industrial, electronic genres. etc.

See, that's how life works. You think these conservative thoughts, you listen to this conservative music. Then one day you have a new experience or series of experiences and everything changes.

Though probably not for you. You'll no doubt take your own objectivist proclivities to the grave.
