Report: Everything Merges And Blends Until What Is Left Is A Nebulous Impermanence That Ends Only With Death

"Suddenly we find ourselves living in an online realm where the old is just as easy to consume as the new. We’re approaching an odd sort of asymptote, as our past gets closer and closer to the present and the line separating our now from our then dissolves."

Are we approaching an asymptote, or are we following/on/merged into/become an asymptote? And why is this asymptote an "odd" sort of asymptote? Aren't asymptotes tautogically odd? Is there a taxonomy of asymptoteness/osity/titude that makes the distinction ephemeral? Even/or/as illusory?

And why can't I get Hoboken Saturday Night or Who's Landing In My Hanger? or My Search for Warren Harding or In the Next World, You're On Your Own on the Internet, if it's so darn ubiquitous/omniverous?

And will this comment ever get to a point?

@KarenUhOh I like asymptotitude best. Let's go with that.

"In a history glut, the idea of fashionability in music erodes, because new songs sit on the same shelf as songs recorded five, 25, and 55 years ago, all of them waiting to be discovered.": But Milli Vanilli is still out, right? We're talking erosion, not collapse.
