What I'm reading right now...

Art in the age of Mass Media by John A Walker. Basically explores the role fine art plays in the age of mass media and communication. Intriguing. Bits I like so far include the concepts of high/middle and low culture. So fine arts would sit in high and mass media in low. This relates to class as well. Traditionally/stereotypically the upper class appreciates the fine arts and the lower classes the mass media. Personally I find this stuff quite revealing.
