Double-Edged Sword

I’m not sure I can define the difference between “good” edgy and “bad” edgy . . . but I know it when I see it.

The term’s, um . . . double-edged quality is evident in the “cutting edge/bleeding edge” dichotomy.

So, there are “edgy neighborhoods,” “edgy art,” “edgy TV,” “edgy food,” “edgy fashion,” “edgy literature,” “edgy comedy,” “edgy technology” ” you name it.

Of course, there are also people who exhibit that quality, albeit some more genuinely than others.

And there are a couple of edgy blogs (“edgy journalism?”) out there, or so I hear . . . .  🙂

P.S.: A synonym for “bad edgy” is “sketchy.”

See also, “Stomping Grounds” vs. “Stamping Grounds.”
