Imagine if Siri or Apple made a loud cosmic grunt, like Cthulu, to accompany her textual output.

"Postmodern Retro" aptly describes such an appeal, which is retro as a virtual assistant without a human voice and postmodern insofar as my individual belief in Cthulu.

I dunno. "Postmodern Retro" sounds more like a indie band name than a virtual assistant screaming at me with the voice of a dreaming, dead God?

But sure, I'll listen to the mixtape.

I thought "postmodern retro" was yet another musical sub-sub-subgenre I've never heard of.

That was my initial assumption upon seeing the title, until I read the word salad OP.

"Cosmic Grunt" would also be a good name for a band, or perhaps a thirty-minute freeform jazz odyssey.

Too late, Cosmic Slop was already a fabulous album. Only short of Maggot Brain.
