"The Layers Of Meaning" -

Andrew WK has several basic themes which present themselves in various orders, depending on one's approach and chosen method of applied context. The initial and most basic surface layer is "fun" or "joy", which is also the context most frequently applied in attempts to understand the core ideas of the music and presentation, as well as the overal Andrew WK aesthetic, which includes the very idea of an "Andrew WK aesthetic awarness". Awareness, both directly self-relevant, and the awareness of the observer are both main themes which weave in and out of "Andrew WK" and the related presentation. The idea of "joy" can also be read as "freedom" or "the truth", as these words all have similar end results when used to identify the intended end results of an Andrew WK experience. The idea of "knowing" Andrew WK's music or "Andrew WK", is an impossible idea, as there is no way to truly and entirely "know" what is constantly before you. We can merely experience our own thoughts, as ideas about what may or may not be true. To actually "know" would take actually being the object in question - in the case, the person "Andrew WK" - and for better or worse, only one person can own that point of view.

"I came to see that what counts in life is not the events that surround one, but the reflections of those events in one's consciousness. All of a man's life - his work, his deeds, his will, his physical and mental prowess - is completely and utterly devoted to, fixed on bringing about one or another event in the external world, though not so much to experience the event itself as to experience the reflection of the event on his consiousness." - M. Ageyev

beginning to see how this relates. cool!

This has to be the absolute dumbest website I've ever seen. Not only is the content plain stupid, but your writing is wrought with typos. You are a pathetic excuse for a journalist, philosopher*, and person. Go off yourself.

*Your ideas on the subjective nature of Andrew W.K.'s ideas seem to be plagiarized from postmodern and anti-realist thought... except, yours don't make sense, and reading it made me feel a lot dumber.
