This blog you now see before you is something I have resisted for a long time. I certainly don’t go out of my way to live outside the mainstream, but blogs, much like tattoos, have in recent years gone from marks of distinction to fairly commonplace. I figured if seemingly everyone was “talking,” how could anyone be “listening?”
Plus, who the heck wants to feel the pressure of having to write something that aspires to some level of worth or meaning…for fun.
Well, I’m taking the advice of a couple of my friends (Michael Sgro for one) and putting myself out there in to the crowded blogosphere. I do have opinions, and some of them I hold very passionately. I suppose I may as well send them off to the “masses” instead of driving my family mad having to listen to them again.
One thing I can assure you is that this blog will never be on a deadline. Another thing I can promise is that it will probably be schizophrenic, covering no particular consistent topic from post to post. I am sure it will have lots of musical content, inspirational moments and people, and other things I love. I’m a dog with a bone when I find something I think is great…so be warned.
I’ve assembled some archival stuff over the past few days. Those are the entries dated prior to this one. Please check them out if they look interesting to you.
I may add other things from the past if the spirit moves me, but this is a forward-looking endeavor for me, by and large. I have a vision for the world, and it is still a long way from here.
So, let’s get started.
