Oh, to Write Like This!

An editor's job is to make writing easy to read and understand, but sometimes even I just want to pull out all the stops. I vastly enjoyed the following sentence in this article about the 30th anniversary of hiphop (worth a read throughout):

Because at heart, hiphop remains a radical, revolutionary enterprise for no other reason than its rendering people of African descent anything but invisible, forgettable, and dismissible in the consensual hallucination-simulacrum twilight zone of digitized mass distractions we call our lives in the matrixized, conservative-Christianized, Goebbelsized-by-Fox 21st century.
