Maybe we should take a step back

Perhaps we should take a step back and take a break from "remixing" and the like. I would really like to read a few pieces that were written with the intention of originality, and that were written by an author who was confident in his/her identity enough to shape their work around their ideas only.  I realize this may seem a little impossible, as we've talked extensively about how nothing can be truly "original," but I think in order to even attempt to do so we must go back in time and read some older pieces.
