Music among the adorable
Although the conjecture regarding what my viewers and correspondents are looking for when they visit these rocky shores is a somewhat vast topic, one expression that doesn't immediately come to mind is 'cute'.
Yes, yes...I know that seems shocking. But like WMDs under George Bush's persian rug, there just isn't a lot of 'cute' here.
That said, the blogosphere is a somewhat limitless construct in the conceptual sense, and many of those who inhabit it enjoy lighter pursuits as a relief from the tedium of, say, discussing politics or the sex lives of the famous.
One of those is my pal Valley Girl, whom I have known since the bad old days fighting the zombie Republican hordes at FireDogLake, and she has a blog which collates the many and varied expressions of all things feline and cuddly.
Recently, as a minor change of pace, she approached me with an idea - a discussion about music, point/counterpoint between enthusiast and professional, the initial results to be found here.
Not to 'toot my own horn', as it were - my opinions, irrespective of experience and standing are, in the end mere opinions with as much or as little weight as any other- but I rather enjoyed the dialog and hope that you might also, dear reader.
