Notes on Blogging Aesthetics

"Songs don’t have narratives in the sense that books or films do. They are emotional snapshots of a moment, augmented by a little bit of context that gives specificity to the emotion. Likewise in other forms — art — it’s a snapshot, a slice. We listen to the same pieces of music over and over; maybe because they’re more abstract we can insert ourselves in varying ways into their “narrative”, or the implied little piece of a presumed narrative that they present."
-- David Byrne, writing about videogame aesthetics, but perhaps offering some ideas that are also useful for a space like this.
