The art of . . . blogging
Blogging. It’s arts and culture, innit? I’ve seen the prettiest pictures on blogs, and am lately finding the most wonderful words. Turns out that when it comes to culture, the internet’s holding its own, and bloggers are an excellent way in to all things arty. Take George Szirtes on Picasso, frinstance, an artful post bolstered by a comment thread of poets. Or Annie Rhiannon’s compelling road-trip photographs, or this little dandy with the stated aim of shedding “some light on many of the small influences that have converged to make this massive project (Spike Jonze’s feature film rendition of Maurice Sendak’s classic story Where The Wild Things Are) a reality”. And then there are moments of poetry that almost stop you in your click on clicking and give you something the internet rarely does, pause. Any recommendations for other online arts and culture?
