How to sing like a planet

Scientists say the Earth is humming. Not just noise, but a deep, astonishing music. Can you hear it?

Article at SFGate

I'm not usually bothered by this at all, since I use the words myself, but his 'hell' placements (4 of them, 2 in one paragraph) & especially the 'goddamn' placement at the end I found insanely out of place in an article like that.

Great article.

It's like we're all individual notes in the world's song.

I agree about his use of the word 'hell' and 'goddamn'.

I forgive him because his writing is jocular, full of ego and lists and not yet fully mature (lists are for show, and not really good writing).

But he's going in the write (intentional) direction. If he can eschew his ego, then we'll see the real genius comes out. If he gets rich off his writing, then all bets are off. I see flickers of truth in his other columns, but he still has a couple revelations to go - as do we all.
