HEY YOU | I Ain’t Wasting No More Time |
The world is a big bad place, and it doesn’t give a shit about your feelings. That is harsh. But sadly it’s also true. Virtue signaling seems to be the norm, but really? In the grand picture of things, does anyone really care about how you feel? Not really. So I formally announce that I’m done with worrying about the emotional state of the Geo political noise in the world. I need more music. More art. I ain’t wasting no more time!
So… on that note. I’m going back to writing a blog. And the subject you ask? My day to day spews, music and art! Because music cares about your feelings. Trust me, it does! Music and art can give you pleasure. For instance, did you know that “The Concise Oxford Dictionary” defines music as “the art of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion” The art of music I say! Did you also know, that ancient Egyptians credited one of their gods, Thoth, with the invention of music, used as part of his effort to civilize the world. Just say’in! So that’s why I’m not wasting anymore time. The civilized world needs more music. And in a hurry. So this blog will help in that revolution.
Music and art in general seems to be slowly getting watered down. Films don’t seem to be as original anymore. There are a few stunning or fascinating films every year, but they get harder and harder to find in the noise that is media. So the effort at Electric Mud is to be a place to safely land, so you can find the outliers. The artists, books, films and the music that are increasingly getting more difficult to discover. The daily spews of a rock n roller as we spin around the sun. Stories about current affairs, new releases, historical moments in music and the some personal spews and observations as the days go by.
I must also add, that the content you find here, will be choices from personal taste. Or from trusted friends with “amazing” taste. In these articles, with all it’s spelling mistakes ripped jeans, incorrect grammar and bruised fingers, I will still try and be insightful and interesting. A truthful place for art. I’ll try and bring a different take on the world. Through the lens of these tired ears and eyes. A rocker from Generation X, traveling on this road of destiny. Hopefully I can share a lifetime’s experience in musicality. From the streets of Toronto, to the rolling rocks of the Ontario Canadian shield, and into the world beyond. Follow along and comment if you like. I want to be engaged. I just had a thought. Maybe it’s that simple. Maybe all the world needs is just a little more love, a little more art…and a little more music to make us all feel good!
Please feel free to share with your fellow human. Sharing is also good for your health!
