This blog started as Mostly Modern Music. When I realized I was mixing in too many posts on TV and journalism for the “mostly” part to be accurate, I flipped it to Mostly Modern Media.
“Modern” can be taken a couple of ways. I’m focusing on “modern” media in the sense that you won’t find much here about music or journalism before, say, 1965. But it’s also “modern” in the sense that I’m a little skeptical of the “postmodern” — which could mean anything from today’s music (blech) to Web 2.0 (depends on the application).
That just means I’m stuck at a certain age. Too old to hip-hop and moan, to young to remember Woodstock.
If you find yourself thinking, “Hey, I’d love to read a thesis by this guy,” go right ahead. I wrote it in 2000, but I think it’s still somewhat current.
If you’re not all that interested in reading a thesis, you’re in the right place, because I have no intention of repeating it. This is mostly music. And TV. And other stuff. Enjoy.
One thought on “About”
Hi! I’ve just discovered your blog, and some links seem no longer to work.
One is the “About” page’s link to your thesis. Another is the link to a video interview with Bill Bruford, on this page:
I’m trying to track down that “Berlin Wall” quotation … Do you happen to recall anything about WHICH documentary you linked to? e.g., did it focus on Bruford personally, or prog rock specifically? on which network did it air? etc.
I would warmly appreciate any clues you could offer.
