It seems Wilco is getting quoted every couple weeks on that interweb. Ya their tunes are great, and I’m still listening to their albums on a regular basis (almost as much as R.E.M.). But it seems that they’re turning into this weird symbol for technology/music. If they were electronica I could possibly by the argument. Ironically though, they sound as great acoustically as they do with power – maybe that’s the point.
The latest blog blessing comes from World Changing
The original blessing that caught my attention a couple weeks ago came from kottke The excerpt was from “Who Own’s Culture”. What struck me was a potential word swaps written below.
Original Quote: Tweedy: “Music is finished in the audience”. He credited the audience with 50% ownership in the creation of a musical piece…the creator is not much until someone listens to the music they’ve created.
Swap Quote #1: “Advertising is finished in the audience”. He credited the audience with 50% ownership in the creation of a message…the advertiser is not much until someone acts on to the message they’ve created.
Swap Quote #2: “Real design is understood the audience”. He credited the audience with 100% ownership in the comprehension of a message…the designer is not much until someone acts on the the directions they’ve understood.
