I suppose you were thinking about my last post regarding Beethoven. I actually researched modern-day Beethovens, and found a number of recent articles about Bono (from the band U2), which surprised me. According to the British classical music magazine Gramophone, Bono is just like Beethoven. I love U2, but I’m not sure how I feel about that… And, another thing I noticed while doing that search, is that just over a year ago, more people downloaded Beethoven than they did Bono. Interesting…I wonder if that’s still the case…
Anyways, in my opinion, there is no modern-day Beethoven. But, if there were, it would be someone whose music conveys feeling in a beautifully complex and innovative way. Music that is perhaps shocking at first, then loved by all, and eventually considered timeless.
And, as you can see, I still have aways to go on this love seat, even though I’ve already stitched a whole lotta beads onto this felt. But, the good news is, I’m done thinking about Christmas, and I hope to spend the rest of the week doing beadwork:)
