Random Musical Thought: Teaching artist Eric Booth writes: "Entertainment happens within what you already know. Underneath its many features that inspire, delight, frighten, sadden us, it confirms our sense of the way the world is. That's the whole point of entertainment- to stimulate and affirm- and it's often done brilliantly. The artistic experience had better not be opposed to this, or we are in big trouble. Art also stimulates and affirms, but it happens outside of what we already know; art enlarges our sense of the works- it expands our sense of the possible."
