Authenticity Watch: Freezing in the dark

“I know this sounds really lame, but I listen to a lot of music and it just sounds better.”

That’s New York sculptor Justen Ladda, explaining why he doesn’t heat his apartment.  Are you still using heat? Yuppie.  Cold is the new warm, dude.  Not only do you save money, but you can yank out your insulation to improve the acoustics in your living room. Besides, as Jake Dibeler, a 21-year-old performance artist living in an unheated warehouse in Baltimore with five roommates and two cats points out, a space heater is “a placebo at best”.

I wonder if they ever get together with the urban cavemen, and sit around on a concrete floor eating boar.
