Circular logic

Via Dizzies Linkmaster General Thomas: news of a video work by Gabriela Fridriksdóttir called Ouroboros: "The artist describes the Ouroboros video as a journey through the seven vetebras of the snake, that together creates a universe of souls."

Most excellent turn-of-phrase (/-snake?) from the article by Alex Ross in this week's New Yorker:

"[Classical] labels now realize that they can make money by selling large numbers of releases in more modest quantities. Chris Anderson, the author of the contrarian business book 'The Long Tail,' calls this strategy 'selling less of more.' The 'long tail' is the almost limitless inventory of CDs, books, movies, and other products that pours forth on sites such as Some may sell or rent only once a year....

Yet [Naxos Records-founder Klaus] Heymann is skeptical of the long-tail hypothesis as a long-term business model. Posting audio files on the Internet still costs money, he says, and if labels, orchestras, and radio stations glut the globe with archives of recorded material 'the long tail will bite itself.'"
