Culture versus paraculture

February 26, 2012

Which is to say, criticism versus views/reactions. These are difficult, not to say nonsensical boundaries. How does a basement jam in a Brooklyn loft relate to culture? The distinction is outmoded as soon as the idea is floated.

I only find clarity in positive views of this mileu. These are the only viewpoints which cut through the fog and establish lines of engagement.

Hence, a positive view of blogs – freedom of reportage, the inner life of the music-thinker. An infinite possibilty of mobile structures.

Obviously blogs are fragile and ready to be compromised at any stage. This should not count against them.
