To understand this post you need to look at this other post I just reblogged. So open that in a new tab.

That post is a nested reblog thread. One of the things people really hate about Tumblr is nested reblog threads – they are ugly and clunky and hard to read. What could possibly be good about them?

Well, at least they give you an option.

In 1955, the Harvard Business Review published The Product and the Brand by Gardner and Levy. It remains a remarkable piece. Towards the end they say: “Every advertisement is part of the long-term investment in the personality of the brand.” It was, I believe, the first time that such an insight had been so clearly expressed. David Ogilvy seizing on a definition of what he had long been practising, adopted it as the first plank of his 1957 Creative Credo. He wrote: “We try to create sharply defined personalities for our brands. And we stick to those personalities, year after year.”

If you share the work of others, it’s your duty to make sure that the creators of that work get proper credit. Crediting work in our copy-and-paste age of reblogs and retweets can seem like a futile effort, but it’s worth it, and it’s the right thing to do. You should always share the work of others as if it were your own, treating it with respect and care.

What if you want to share something and you don’t know where it came from or who made it? The answer: Don’t share things you can’t properly credit. Find the right credit, or don’t share.

If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery—isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.

sooooo, I realized I’ve been sharing more music to this Tumblr than actual updates ever since I started tumbling in ‘09. and while this space has never had a real focus (cool, right), I decided time enough to send most of that stuff to a new blog.

so anyway, if you’re interested in music from 1920-1969, please follow my newest place of internet residence, Telegramophone
