Lovely Spam


Here at the  Vis-Com-Des blog we get the occasional Spam comment or two that make it through the anti-spam filters, but this one – received today – really stood out for its wild sycophancy and its uncharacteristic attention to basic phrasing and grammar:

“May I simply just say what a comfort to discover someone who genuinely understands what they are talking about on the internet. You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people have to look at this and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular since you most certainly have the gift.”

Mix-Blog on Central Station – get involved

Apparently, writing about music is like dancing about architecture. I did google to check this long-held-dear quote, that I thought had been coined by Lester Bangs, but it turns out it might have been first muttered by Elvis Costello. Or Zappa. Or it possibly might have been Laurie Anderson and she actually said “writing about art…”.

Thankfully, this thing I’m making a pigs-ear of introducing is neither specifically about music or architecture, though they both come in to it. I’m hoping there might be some dancing, but it’s probably more dominated by ‘art’. With plenty of film and design thrown in too.

We’ve got 28 blogs coming up on Central Station – one each day in February, under the slightly dumb banner of ‘MIX-BLOG’ – which are dedicated to SOUND, and where it intersects with creativity.

We’ve asked our expert, passionate, insightful members to explore a panoply of good vibrations – from Sonic Art to Synaesthesia via the complex aesthetic codes of Subcultural Style. There are projects, podcasts and plenty of personal perspectives, hopefully with less alliteration and a lot more inspiration. Look out too for a few ex-vis com graduates in the mix…

Just one last thing: we want you to get involved too. Our 28 members are bravely taking the floor and putting this brand new material out there, just for you. We’d like you to comment, contribute, collaborate, corroborate. Sound-off, or show your appreciation. Just make some noise. [+ We’re hoping that the most interesting discussions and collaboration will form the basis of a project. ]

Mix-blog#1 is by brian at Two Open Ears – he’s challenging designers to consider sound and how it shapes the everyday experience.

(and apologies for more Central Station ‘spam’… I will post something else unrelated to censta soon, promise )
