Oh yes... for modern 1sts and the speculative hypermodern crowd there's 
an almost irrational fetish about the djs.

Speaking of speculative, anyone have opinions on whether the 'late 
model' MLs from the last couple of decades have DJs that are less 
ephemeral that the older ones? Seems to me that they are normal trade 
quality and may last longer without disintegrating into molecules like 
the old ones.

[Books of great authors] are regarded as part of the necessary
furniture of the house -- not of the mind; and having been duly and
dutifully bought they are taught to know their place on the appointed
shelf. They are taken as read. There are few men now who, when a new
book is published, read an old one. - An anonymous 19th century cynic
