Enough of #JeSuisCharlie. It is time for you to return to your desk and be afraid and disapprove of every single subject because it’s too risky or too sensitive. Image

U2'S BONO AND EDGE HOLD SHEEP AT DUBLIN'S ST.STEPHEN'S

What if I get in your house and leave all my trash in it? What if I invite the whole world for a party in your damn house? What if I leave my dog’s poop in your mailbox? What if I throw a bunch of apples throw at your window? What if I plant my whole list of hopes and dreams in your brilliant brain, Tim Cook?

Is this information overload driving you crazy? There’s a lot going on and you find yourself wishing for another 24 hours just to make sure you grab the daily basics? Twitter and the 140 character thing is the rearview mirror of our society, but is it the solution? Maybe, just maybe. For example, Spin Magazine (one of the most influential music magazines in the world) has decided long music reviews are dead. Now they’re doing it on Twitter with 140 characters and all.

Is this information overload driving you crazy? There’s a lot going on and you find yourself wishing for another 24 hours just to make sure you grab the daily basics?

Twitter and the 140 character thing is the rearview mirror of our society, but is it the solution? Maybe, just maybe. For example, Spin Magazine (one of the most influential music magazines in the world) has decided long music reviews are dead. Now they’re doing it on Twitter with 140 characters and all. Yeah, you miss a lot of information and maybe it is a little simplistic, but you’ll read it. Will you read a 3000 character music review? I doubt it. Maybe if it is on Pitchfork, the most influential webzine in the world by far.

I’m not defending Spin’s position; I think the answer lies somewhere in the middle and I don’t think this is not adaptable for every market. You can write great things in 140 characters, but not sustainable ones. Recently, I repositioned my personal blog and started to write 140 character reviews. They’re useful for everyone. It is a big part of my weekly writing. I don’t have the time to write 1500 character reviews everyday and you don’t have the time do read it. Anyway, when the album deserves it, I write something that I’ll be proud of.

But don’t get me wrong: I’m still looking for answers too.

This is not a Rip-off

Here’s my Devendra Banhart favorite album: “Cripple Crow”. Almost a pop history rip-off. Everything seems to inspire this incredible guy, the face of the New Weird America, a genre created by a Wire magazine cover. So, the cover is a mashup of The Beatles “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and Hangman’s “Beautiful Daughter”. The music rests on the ashes of Nick Drake, Bob Dylan and The Beatles, a lot of soul and some Tropicalia. There’s even a song inspired by a portuguese village that titles the song “Santa Maria (Read more)

There’s even a song inspired by a portuguese village that titles the song “Santa Maria de Feira”.

Like every human being Devendra Banhart has his own influences. The secret lies in what he does with them. Banhart doesn’t rip-off pop culture. No, he found his own voice. In a world so fragmented, so full of shit, we just have to find that. We just have to find our own voice.

My Radiohead Lesson
By   |  Culture,  User Experience 
Radiohead

There’s a heinous song on Radiohead’s debut album called “Anyone Can Play Guitar”. Four years later Thom Yorke and Co. wrote one of the best albuns of all time, “OK Computer”, and become one of the most respected bands on the planet. That’s my Radiohead Lesson – Anyone can play guitar, talk, post on Facebook, tweet, retweet, etc. You just have to find your way to do it better and touch people. Radiohead career proves it: it’s a work in progress.
