too much noise - not enough music
the art of conversation is all but lost.
perhaps this is not the case elsewhere, but i have encountered, in the last few weeks and days - some terrible conversation right here in san diego.
i feel like good conversation stems from good pacing, content, and the ability to "know your roll". there are turns and polite mechanics to conversation - subtle and not so subtle. i have had my verbal toes stepped on as well as been part of vapid conversation with really intelligent people. the timing has been all off. the volume has been all off. all sorts of contorted and bizarre conversation have taken place.
there have been breaks in that flow of bad talk, but they are drops of water in an ocean of dry boring sand.
maybe it's just me.
this character is called "boo note".
