Notes On Blogging Aesthetics XXI



In the beginning, the idea of wearing sunglasses in an interview seemed...kind of stupid. Now, we realize that, in fact, it's not whether you're wearing sunglasses that's important-- it's what kind of sunglasses you're wearing.
--The Edge, 1992

Hey Dave,
It's actually from a brief interview clip that's on their "Best of 1990-2000" DVD/music video collection. I was watching it the other day and remembered what a great line it was. That Flanagan book is great, though-- a wonderfully quotable resource on the band and the period. Which part were you reading?
