Hey you know that "next blog" link

Up there at the top of the page? There sure do seem to be a lot of red staters on blogspot. Is it me, or is every single site either sharing the joy of Jesus, the joy of Christian music or talking about how to invest. I mean, not that investing is inherently red state or anything. But getting investment advice off blogs? That's just stupid.

So how many fans of Christian Music are there on blogspot? Results 1 - 10 of about 1,430 from blogspot.com for "christian music". (0.42 seconds). Ok, that's a lot. What about just in the blogosphere? 29,582 posts matching Christian Music sorted by most recent. Or maybe Showing 1-10 of 17652 results. Err. Wow.

Compare that with Classical Music: 17,638 posts matching Classical Music sorted by most recent. and Showing 1-10 of 12703 results.
Minimalism: 1,126 posts matching Minimalism sorted by most recent. and Showing 1-10 of 647 results
and HipHop: 6,444 posts matching HipHop sorted by most recent. and Showing 1-10 of 3940 results

Ok, so either the red states have more successfully colonized the blogosphere or I should switch genres. Is anybody writing experimental hymns?

Funny you should ask. I happen to be working on an experimental hymn of sorts at the moment that I call "Apostate Verses." It's a 4 voice canon that quotes four hymn tunes simultaneously while the just intonation scheme shifts like crazy underneath it all.

There's no need to pay attention to that red-state culture in the blog world. They may have colonized... but their posts are largely incoherent.

Good luck with that thesis.
