So after yesterday's blog (Behind facebook status like: "...somewhere between 'Addictive' by Faithless and 'Addicted' by Juliana Hatfield."), I had several people point out that there seemed to be something missing.
After all, I mentioned that each of the quotes would have:
...[as least] three meanings:
- the mundane one that anyone can see even if they know nothing of either/both songs or even either/both artists;
- the deeper one involving some aspect of part of the underlying meanings/themes of the two songs;
- the deepest one involving the exact occurrence or memory or story or experience that I either know of or heard of that inspired me to add it.
But even if you only have one of these it can still be fun...
Yes, that is right -- in my example I did not explain the third point.
I kind of thought the reason behind the omission would be self explanatory, wouldn't it?
Sometimes those deep personal things are really personal; many times they weren't even about me.
So sharing can feel like like a violation of someone's privacy (perhaps mine, perhaps not) and on the whole it seems exist to just not risk it.
I thought that was implied, but not everyone picked up on this point. Sorry about that!
I share a lot here, more than I ought, according to some.
But not everything is shared -- because in addition to all the above, sometimes the best little secrets are kept....
If it is something I feel comfortable blogging about, you'll likely see it.
