The point, though, is that for most of history, musicians were part of the community, not stars, not out of reach. Celebrity has changed this, but now the internet is changing it back. Says Palmer, “It’s about a few people loving you up close — and about those people being enough.”
I love This Is My Jam, and have been really fascinated with the possibilities of conveying character through song choices.
Or maybe it’s because I miss mixtapes.
I wrote a note to the platform developers a little while ago, telling them about how we’ve been using it and offering to buy them a round of drinks the next time they’re in LA. I hope they take me up on it.
Fitz being Darcy’s cousin and blood relation was less important to the story than his being 1) trusted by Darcy, 2) fast friends with Lizzie but 3) not a potential romantic partner.
Making Fitz a cousin didn’t really gain us anything. It’s a good example of a place where we didn’t do something just because it’s the way it was in the original book.
You should be as up or down on any character as you want to be at any given moment. There is a very significant #TeamCaroline out there. I think they’re swapping coffee tips.
You should hear Domino sing “Daisy.” Cuh-reepy.

Lots of people are using transmedia for documentary and nonfiction. Web series, apps and other styles of non-fiction storytelling are pushing the boundaries just as much as fiction is.
Having the audience directly affect the content of the videos is a dicier proposition – strictly from a production standpoint, videos take much longer to turn around than social media text.
But even more than that, if you’re the storyteller – even in non-fiction – its your vision, your taste, your sensibilities that filter the everything, that separates story from not-the-story. Turning that over to the audience dilutes the point-of-view of your story.
Bleeding Edge, which will be published in America on 17 September this year, will be set in 2001 “in the lull between the collapse of the dotcom boom and the terrible events of September 11”
In other words, during the time when we were all playing The Beast.
This is going to be the weirdest book reading experience for me since A Fortunate Age.
