Goya: Yard With Lunatics
There's a scratch n sniff edition of Nietzche's Birth Of Tragedy, available in red or green, that comes with authentic Greek olfactions. Rub off the tiny smudges and breathe deeply and you're transported, like an eidetiker, right into the heart of it.

I like the idea that darkwave kept going on, when everyone else was turning away from it. It helps to remind me that The Wire, The Observer Music Magazine and the blogs are probably not still going to be there when you open your eyes.
Of course, I don't listen to this stuff anymore; that would be foolish but occasionally I like to dip my feet into the water to see how warm it is.
