    There's a lack of novelty from being jaded by experience, and then there's novelty you can't experience because of various sorts of limitations. As we age, those limitations accrue.
    People think they understand their own mortality, even when that understanding has just changed.

    Yes, though not in a perfect slope. I'm currently in a DINK situation, leaps ahead limitation-wise of "poor student" some time ago. Being in a relationship of course brings its own restraints. Kids and dwindling energy levels and health of course will knock me down a peg.

    It'd be one with a lot of overlaid curation methods- I'd want the algorithmic ones, one by genre, by geography, by time period, by musician/producer/engineer, by feel, and also the lists of critics, and the lists of music historians. All that stuff becomes a meaningless mush as you approach the present, so we'd probably have to have some machine learning ones too which would just spit out absolute baffling garbage 95% of the time.
