so….I have been reading all this stuff and things are brewing and changing around in my head, plus I have been having some stellar conversations in the comments on different sites (but been lazy with the little flowering so I haven’t spread the wealth)…
around midnight last night I was sitting in an airport
reading on crackberry crackberry the book that is really pulling things together for me and trying to figure out how I was going to keep reading it, thinking on it and then explaining it to you all when it hit me.
I would record it for you.
What the hell, I mean it is in the public domain so I can. These are not fancy recordings, I am keeping them short and dry, just me and the little Olympus and crackberry crackberry. I will post them in the blog as I go and they will be in the reverb player. Each section will be about 8 mins long.
But….its the kind of stuff that I think you need to hear and not just my interpretation of it but the actual original version. It is called “What is Wrong with the World” by GK Chesterton (who once upon a time was very well known) and while some of it is antiquated the language is simple and accessible. And the ideas are just…make so much sense. It makes you wonder what happened to the world that we threw away knowledge like that. I feel like…I have just been saved from several years of re-inventing the wheel.
by GK Chesterton (read by Cassandra Tribe)
(and by the way, what he is saying is not just about the state of the world and humankind but applies to how our culture, literature etc. has sort of gone off on a tangent so it applies to the arts as well)
