The Flight Of The Bumblebee

"And the greatest benefit of all is that in that delusion, resistance again becomes possible and we can, in classic The Matrix vein, fight the monsters even when they are inside our heads. Only art can do this today, it seems to me, because only art has the permission to imagine without ridicule." -- Charles Esche in full flight in Apex Art.

What would academic writing like this be without a leaden reference to The Matrix? And to think that only art has the permission to "imagine without ridicule" shows a certain lack of imagination, no?

(I thought writing like this -- a sort of earnest High Modernism written with a Postmodernist's gift for irrelevant pop culture references and airy hand-waving -- died out a decade or two ago. I guess not).
