Twee March 20, 2007

Posted by Walt in codger-tation.

I found an online source that defines “twee” as “affectedly or excessively dainty, delicate, cute or quaint”. In case you codgers haven’t heard it used, it is frequently employed by pop music critics to describe what I would call “precious”.

I previously mentioned how I don’t get Joanna Newsom. She is most definitely twee. The group Belle and Sebastian is twee.

A codger point-of-reference: an artist’s degree of Twee-ness (dT, when expressed in an equation) is directly proportional to the amount that they sound like Donovan. Remember “Sunshine Superman” and “Mellow Yellow”? That man was the grandmaster of twee.
