God, I am such a rock critic.

Taken in December by Jefferson, who simply rocks.

I've read more of Klosterman's book, and the guy really can be a good writer when he avoids the first person plural. The chapter about serial killers was fine because he made few assumptions about how his own obsession related to the human condition, which cannot be defined by the singular experiences of a defensive white male music nerd raised in the midwest (I know this - see above). If people want to call him "The Voice Of A Generation" that's their prerogative, but he shouldn't take it upon himself. Is there some way we could make him stop? Maybe a petition or something?
