My John Aielli insight
I’ve been listening to John Aielli on KUT’s Eklektikos for about 100 years, but this morning I had a weird feeling about his rant du jour (about the Bleak House production he’d been watching on KLRU). It was somehow familiar in a way I didn’t connect with Aielli. This is like… like… a BLOG! It hit me – not like a bolt of lightning, more like a slightly starchy wet noodle – but it did hit me: John Aielli’s rants have the casual, slightly inane quality of many blog posts; he’s blogging out loud. So if he wasn’t playing music, if he was blogging text, would I read him? Would you?
