More (than I ever wanted to know about) cowbell.
Frankly, it took me much more effort than was
justifiable to reconstruct (for myself at least) how it is that I learned
about "more cowbell". It was a fascinating discovery, though perhaps
the most fascinating part was learning that I'd, apparently accidentally, plodded
into a subculture that I know nothing about.
Having stumbled upon this
important bit of cultural information, I delved into it, discovering (though
not to my surprise) that I'd only uncovered the tip of the iceberg, and that time
and desire permitting (neither of them do) I could have continued my plunge into
(for me) uncharted cultural waters. Still, I had to ask myself whether I really
cared, or, perhaps more to the point, could I have survived without knowing about
this. The answers were "not really" to the first question, and an undeniable
"yes" to the second. Still, this is now information stored away for
me, waiting to be accessed if and when I need it some other time.
