"Ogle is for the most part a pleasant, incisive companion. Occasionally, though, she manages to lose her cool — and, along with it, the agnostic veneer of her training . . . . She strafes Ralph Nader and his “Naderites,” not to mention journalists, “yuppies,” urbanites, the U.S.D.A. and the F.D.A. Eventually Ogle, her exasperation at a boiling point, does something unexpected: She sides with the hippies." -- Nick Reding, New York Times Book Review

What grabbed me was the imagery: Here was a group of young women using digital media to turn EVERY convention of music video and rap culture on its head, right down to the way they were dressed. It was genius. WHAT they were singing was irrelevant.
But I gotta tell you: Sometimes it just wears a woman down. Sometimes I just wanna go sit in the rocker and watch the clouds.
The change begins. So gradual. It's easy to miss the opening act.
