Some of the arguments here I agree with, others I don't. But the tone, the style, the whatever-it-is adjective for the way people write in such a way that grabs at your ears in spite of the silence of reading, and screams and sings at you --- damn, it's some seriously lovely writing.
On a second read I feel a little bashful for praising it so highly. It's just a rant about mp3s and shit, right? Still the writing really does do something for me.
