OriginalCulture: Folk Crave

An unusual HauteLit topic this week: Folk Culture Crave as items considered to be “folk” would generally be thought of as the opposite of “haute,” but this week I present some haute-y qualities relating to the idea of folk.  Besides the fact that the Freshman dorm I lived in at Georgia Tech was named Folk and indeed embodied “folk-like” characteristics, there is a lot of awesomeness to love about the idea of “folk” in language, culture, the arts, and more.

Check it out at Writer’sClub KL where you’ll find the reoccuring Saturday (or Friday, here) post:

HauteLit from Hotlanta: Folk

Show your love for Writer’sClub and it’s awesomeness by commenting or liking the post on their website instead of here.

Also, if you haven’t read it already, please read and comment on my Fanzine article so that I can write more and do what I love!  In lieu of ever pleading for monetary donations to the cause of this starving artist, I ask only for the donation of a comment as that is what the true desperate starving artist really needs:

A Knight Takes Up the Fight for Joy

Here’s what they say about it, “[OriginalTitle] lays down the weary burden of a 9-to-5 and takes up the fight for joy, drawing on the legacies of Beethoven, Klimt, and Spinal Tap. It is a noble crusade. Turn the speakers up to 11.”

  1. I second Ginsberg & Poe, and I raise you George Saunders (especially In Persuasion Nation). It’s about commercialism, so maybe that’s pushing the boundaries of folk, but that’s the idea, right?
