I’ve tried—since I was a teenager and became aware of this in myself—to reject the idea that I need to feel competitive with other women specifically. There’s nothing wrong with feeling competitive with people in general, but when we start to see other women as the enemy, that leads to nowhere good. When people ask me if I feel like the space for women’s websites is crowded, I wonder if anyone would say that about sports websites geared toward men. Are there too many sports websites? The question comes from the idea that there’s a finite amount of space for women to occupy, and I don’t believe that there is.

Anna will join seven other ladybloggers tonight in non-competitive solidarity! Free, 7PM.

Miles Davis: On the Corner Reassessed, 2009
Howard Mandel’s 2009 re-examination of Miles Davis’s On The Corner is a fascinating multi-faceted look at a controversial if not pivotal album from 1972. This isn’t revisionist history; it’s hindsight from a variety of perspectives. When this album came out, I couldn’t listen to more than five minutes of it. Years later, I heard in a very different perspective (funk and record production rather than what I would have liked Miles to still be playing at the time) and found the worth in the album. The real unsung hero here was producer Teo Macero (also an accomplished composer) who ingeniously edited and weaved fragments into intriguing wholes.
