The Complete Unfiguranted Egalitarian Aural Realism III

“Which was why, the wraith is continuing, the complete unfiguranted egalitarian aural realism was why party-line entertainment critics always complained that the wraith’s entertainments’ public-area scenes were always incredible dull and self-conscious and irritating, that they could never hear the real meaningful central narrative conversations for all the unfiltered babble of the peripheral crowd, which they assumed the babble was some self-conscious viewer-hostile heavy-art directoral pose, instead of radical realism.” (from David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest)
