sometimes we rock and roll. sometimes we stay at home. and its just fine.
i've been thinking so much about art and labels and critiques to understand another's tastes, or worse, to box and understand that person...and i've come to one conclusion. it is that i am so grateful that the artists i call my favorites - be it music, fine art, or literature - have not kept their talents to themselves and hidden from the world. otherwise i would never know them and never be able to identify with them. i am so glad they put themselves out there, wide open to praise and critique equally. it makes me think i shouldn't keep my art so sheltered...
...on another related note, i'm going to take some friends to see the Walkmen and Beach House tonight...i love Fridays.
