Michael would take that as a compliment! The societal demand for
conventional, bland attractiveness in pop culture bores him to tears.
Actually, this aesthetic still pervades Athens, Ga, a town of very
interesting humans whose very existence in the Deep South never
ceases to amaze me. They would hook into some of the transhumanist
ideas quite nicely.
