This 50th Chronicle is about subjects I should write about :
Creation as association of ideas? You have two hours.
I should try an article to sort pop & rock megahits by category. The one with a riff (Satisfaction), the unexpected chorus, the hymn (Shout), the waltz (Golden Brown), the voice, the explosive gimmick, etc…
“One person can’t be everything to another”, therefore what.
There’s an article to write about Disney Smile. There’s an Urban Dictionary entry : “Disney Smile : a obviously fake and often exaggerated smile”. Since Ariel maybe, and Aladdin, they seem to become aware of this.
The Psychocriminology syndrome, the My Kid Don’t Sleep syndrome, the Present for my Retiring Dad syndrome, the I have Twins it’s a problem syndrome : every bookseller knows them. People constantly ask for these books, and you can’t have any which satisfy them. Thus, if you have zero book or seventeen books about these subjects, you will never sell a single one. You show them the books, and they grin : “Well, no”. So what? So I dun’t knuw.
“An artist has to be challenged” – OK but why and when and how? A competitor? Someone who finally tell him he’s not that good?
If I was thirty years younger I’d vlog on YouTube, asking the stars this single question :
What music do YOU listen to?
There’s a series of mix-albums called Back_to_Mine. I love this idea, which is to ask what the artist would play at home after a night out. Röyksopp came with delightful nuggets like Vangelis, Popol Vuh or This Mortal Coil. It’s like a map. If you like this artist, you are interested in knowing its foundations… Oui?
Nietzsche. Cioran. These are two names I have in mind when I think about archipelago thinking, “la pensée en archipel”. Build a list of these books.
Write this book :
How don’t you give someone you love… conversation? Where is deep intimacy, spiritual connection? The one who loves you should see you as his companion. His confident. His love.
If you never get more than a spoon of it : What kind of love is this, then? Find many positive answers.
Thanks for reading!
