  • On An Overgrown Path: Is there life after The Huffington Post?
    don t see why echo chamber blogs or affiliated blogs mean that independent ones will die People read what is worth reading The number of discriminating readers stays constant or maybe it grows This is sounding a bit like Norman Lebrecht Whether you can afford to write a blog which pays you nothing or next to nothing is a separate matter but people with things to say usually do find time 12 32 am sfmike said Peter Huestis at Princess Sparkle Pony s photoblog has long dubbed the site The Huffington Thing and it seems to become more unreadable with every unpaid writer they add Let me echo Patrick Hogan on congratulating you for walking the talk My Civic Center blog doesn t have a very large audience but the readers who do check in regularly tend to be smart influential and likely to rebroadcast anything original from my posts to the wider world It s a wonderfully satisfying thing to start a meme that is taken up by enough people that it soon becomes common knowledge and getting credit for the original idea is the least of my concerns As for blogs fast becoming no more than an echo chamber for industry press releases and salacious gossip leavened occasionally by that perennial fallback for the creatively challenged a YouTube video why do you think I come to An Overgrown Path rather than the many sites which fit that description So it s a lot of work with little reward other than self satisfaction but you ve done a great job and continue to do so Plus I ve learned gazillions of weird and interesting things here the BBC needs to have you kicking them in the ass your links between music and spirituality are the most catholic in the small c sense imaginable and I thank you 12 38 am Pliable said TH via email Bob no offense but I was quite surprised that Fluffington Post would be interested in your thought provoking and meaty sorry herbaceous tangents And I have to chortle at the term aggregation Wal Mart may see no future without strong aggregation but The Overgrown Path is a boutique or independent book store where one languishes and gets lost and which strongly reflects the prickly proprietor s personality Sure from time to time we have to visit Wal Mart or taste the salacious gossip and the author whose books the Norwich Library keeps on reserve for you but in the end some of us need the substance of blogs such as yours or of small circulation rags like The Hudson Review Your last two sentences made a lot of sense in explaining your decision Please stay unworldly and remain being yourself Congrats on your decision and a chunk of sustainable tuna to Ginger 7 18 am davidderrick said And hmmm to this that perennial fallback for the creatively challenged a YouTube video I post them a lot It is to share things as widely as

    much from fascists and then collaboration how can this happen my won country drifts further to the extreme right wing every day with hate mongers becoming the mainstream The argument itself has been so skewed that the far lunatic right is the center and politely liberal views are portrayed as the far left which is asinine As is american politics 10 54 pm Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading Blog Archive 2016 19 February 5 January 14 2015 196 December 21 November 9 October 23 September 24 August 13 July 25 June 12 May 12 April 17 March 3 February 21 January 16 2014 211 December 13 November 23 October 13 September 19 August 17 July 10 June 21 May 27 April 15 March 2 February 23 January 28 2013 257 December 21 November 17 October 31 September 8 August 35 July 24 June 24 May 8 April 31 March 8 February 24 January 26 2012 276 December 22 November 25 October 23 September 12 August 20 July 27 June 27 May 7 April 32 Figures in a creche can t sing twelve tone music Britten s passion for the East Is Kylie Minogue really headlining the Proms Wagner s sonic dream Is there life after The Huffington Post Glorious Gregorian chant but is the price right The Pre Packaged Symphony Temptation and indulgence at the BBC Proms There are fairies at the bottom of the music Loads of preconceptions about classical music Will this attract young audiences discuss If Fair Trade works elsewhere why not in music Classical music behaving badly The strange voyage of a brilliant musician Classical music is all about nuance El Sistema has more than one meaning A tale

  • On An Overgrown Path: Will this attract young audiences? - discuss
    here that need a little bit more joining up 1 51 pm Philip Amos said If I were compiling an illustrated dictionary I d put this beside misguided I thought it was a spoof at first and then at the end when the ninjas appeared I didn t have the foggiest idea what it was If the Philharmonie does have good programmes to entice the young there s no indication of them in the video And it s beyond me how hip hop sessions are going to put young people in seats for a concert of Beethoven and Bartok or what have you My conclusion perhaps a point missed is that this is a promotion for the Philharmonie not the Philharmonique 2 14 pm Janoskam said On one hand the last tweo posts are right If they wanted to promote the Philharmonique or the aventure subscription the ninja video should only be seen on youtube in relation with a crosslink to the site aventureplus lu Otherwise one thinks it s for the Philharmonie rather than for the Philharmonique Funny enough to see on aventureplus lu that there seems to be more to see in the pipeline But for some reason the remaining stuff is not online yet And on the other hand this kind of misguidance is for me also a form of perspective change towards a subject Anyway by adding a dash of humor I d always feel more appealed to open myself for a subject than without A good example for charming misguidance is the concert milk in Dortmund konzertmilch de 4 39 pm Philharmonie Luxembourg said Thank you for all your comments questions and remarks they are most useful and we are absolutely happy that not everyone just says great The Ninja video is only the very first one of a series of four videos the three remaining being indeed completely different to the first one The general aim of these 4 videos which you will find on the website www aventureplus lu is to promote a new subscription called Aventure which has a quite unique concept 4 evenings of musical discoveries Joanna MacGregor is for this first edition the artistic advisor of this new cycle of concerts Of course you may ask yourself whether Ninjas will sell tickets and bring younger audiences to listen Beethoven Mahler or Szymanowski The answer to this question remains open But we believe that at least this video can help younger audiences discover the Philharmonie and the variety of its programme just by teasing their curiosity There are loads of preconceptions on classical music running amongst the people not only the young audience And these preconceptions are admittedly quite sticky Before bringing a young audience people in their twenties thirties into a Brahms concert you first need to bring them to cross the front door to like the place This whole campaign is one single step into this direction Oh and by the way the anonymous comment was not by the
