There is a song over which I have puzzled for 20 some years: “If You Could Only See” by Tonic, and I heard it again when I went to that 90’s band a bit ago. Hearing it, I remembered a debate I had with my former fiance about its meaning, thus reopening a question
Inspiration Engine is a weekly post I do about blogs that have inspired something in my this week.
1. This post, “Good Music is Timeless” by Icepicks and Nukes. A thousand times yes. It’s kids today reacting to Nirvana. It’s awesome and reminds me of how I felt when I was that age, when I first heard Smells Like Teen Spirit or, even more powerful, Black, by Pearl Jam. One of the kids in the video said that rock has skewered into two waaay different directions right now, and not good ones. I’d had that observation, but couldn’t tell if that was just me getting old or what. It was nice to be reinforced. 🙂
2. This post, “On Sherlocking,” by Drew Chial, focuses on an exercise to one might to to improve their writing and their character development. In my ever so humble opinion, good character development is right under there with “good writing” on the list of things that makes a piece good. I appreciate this suggestion to flex those muscles.
