andee's world: Art vs Commerce

andee's world

Hello and welcome to my blog. This space will be devoted to opinions, observations, lists, articles and whatever else I feel like posting. Subjects will include music, human nature, politics, life in NYC, etc. If I paste someone else's writing up here, it is because the author said something way better than I ever could. By the way, I don't claim to be a particularly smart guy; I'm just a musician with some opinions. If you disagree with me, that's cool -- but then, you're probably wrong.

Art vs Commerce

"Middle-class America has withering words for its men of feeling, for its young
of experimental intelligence, who do not show immediately that their endeavors
pay off on a cash basis. But if a civilization falls, is it cash the inheritors
find among the ruins? Or is it a statue, a poem, a play, a song?"

Truman Capote, 1946
