"I'm Outside compiles a series of photographs all shot on a single roll of an apartment complex in my neighborhood in Los Angeles. I walk by the buildings on a daily basis. They have a peculiar configuration on the corner lot and there always seems to be someone waiting to be let in." - Nicholas Gottlund

2b ('trivial/awesome')

At one point in The Aesthetics of Rock, Meltzer states how "the awesome can be experienced by the trivial and of the trivial", followed by a description of a Beatles concert at New York's Shea Stadium in August '65.  The frenzy of the crowd, upon seeing the group appear, was of such an intensity that they collectively produced


an uproar that was unending and in fact prevented all participating in the audience from hearing a single word actually sung by the Beatles. Only memory of past aural experience of the Beatles was needed to sustain this new outburst with the group now present.


It reminded me of a personal encounter on Bastille Day 2015, in Bordeaux, when I realised (as an English person) how important this public holiday is to the French people. As the fireworks reached their climax it was clear that we were seeing the maximal possible limit of fireworks in the night sky - any more simultaneous explosions would have rendered the fireworks completely obscured by their own smoke.
