There's great inspiration to be found in Thackery's brand of satire. It was panoramic, scything the heads off snobs and "peasants" alike.

“The air is rich tonight: still and cold, high pressure, the best time of year. . . . Above 650, the clicks dissipate into a thin, pervasive noise, like dust. Discharges break across this: distant lightning, aurora borealis, meteorites. Their crashes and eruptions sound like handfuls of buckshot thrown into a tin bucket, or a bucketful of grain-rich gravy dashed against a wash-boiler. Wireless ghosts come and go, moving in arpeggios that loop, repeat, mutate, then disappear.”
Tom McCarthy. "C"

This volume documents four sound pieces that dramatize auditory illusions, effectively composing within the relationship between our perception of pitch and the localization of sound, as we process the two in our auditory cortices. The pieces are partly transcribed using a form of notation called “typotranslation,” developed by Hecker at MIT.

I like snobs. They are too funny. You have to be amused by someone who takes invented values and treats them like they are the very meaning of life. A snob's commitment to the vissicitudes of taste, status and social hierarchy is after all, a romantic pursuit, and ultimately an exercise as poetic as it is futile.
