Quick! Everybody assimilate some random aspect of an ancient culture you don't understand!
"Don't these 500 year old Malayan temple doors look fabulous on my neo-Modern/Minimalist cube?"
"They're so last season. This year it's raw Sequoia. You know, like the environment and stuff."
"I guess I'll trash them, then. Catch you at the sushi bar later?"
"Sushi? That's completely retro. We're doing fried yak pancreas. Tibetan style."
"Thanks for the tip. Here's some good karma at ya!"
"Karma... Puh-lease. Eastern religion's totally out. This week it's Kabbala."
I'm not interested in "what's hot". I care about what's good.
