As an artist I am driven to create but nowadays art is rushed and short lived. In the printed age and author would toil for years to create a book. If successful that book would be enjoyed for generations. Handed down.
Same went for music. Albums like "Dark Side Of The Moon" and "Morrison Hotel" were constantly being discovered by new generations of fans, handed down over decades. They were known as classics. But today music comes and goes. Modern hits aren't even good enough to be tomorrow's car commercials. Twenty years from now no one except for nostalgia hungry 30 somethings will want to hear "Sexy & I Know It" or "Gangman Style." We just churn art out for momentary enjoyment and move on to the next thing. No staying power.
With that pressure to rush out a blog this morning I have to admit this post was hastily typed and is probably not the best thing I have ever written and that's The Bitter Truth.
