I find it very easy to be long winded when producing media. I'll often start writing an article and the word count will be at 750 before I know it. Or I'll start writing a script for a two minute video that will end up being five if I keep all the words I'm writing down.
What Minor Threat taught me about great media is that it's better to keep your content short and powerful than it is to make it overburdened and unfocused. What amazes now about this band is the same thing that amazed me when I first heard them in high school: they do more in 51 seconds than most punk bands can do in three minutes—and you're changed once they're finished.
It's easy to get carried away when we create media and make it longer or more dense than we should, but we have to take a cue from Minor Threat. Yes, we want to keep media simple, but we also want to keep it short.
Especially these days, when people have such short attention spans.
