Since I no longer have my frustrating job search to fill the pages of my blog, I’ve been thinking about what I want to write about going forward. I’ve spent a lot of time bitchin’ and moanin’ about my lot in life, so I’ve decided to be a little more positive and feature stuff I love.
I also need a little more structure in my posting schedule, otherwise…shit ain’t gonna get written. Seriously. I like some structure. I love Microsoft Excel. ‘Nuff said.
Anyhow… I love music. I have varied tastes. On my beloved Sansa Fuze there’s a messy mishmash of all kinds of stuff. 80’s pop, Willie Nelson and Asleep at the Wheel, Nick Drake, Kanye West are all hangin’ out. I’ll listen to just about anything once, except opera. I don’t get opera at all.
Starting this week, I’ll be writing a music-themed post on Mondays, under the header “Musical Mondays.” I know, brilliant! Hey, someone has to go for the obvious. It might as well be me.
I’ve been listening to some good stuff lately, and I want to write about it. I’m no musical critic, that’s for sure. I’m not going to be able to say, “Oh…this is reminiscent of Frank Black in his Black Francis stage, with a shade of mid 90’s Morrissey, and a smattering of Tom Tom Club.” Heck, I just made that up! And I don’t even know what that means.
So there you go. I’m launching a weekly amateur music feature. It’s old hat to many, but new to me. I’m looking forward to listening carefully and writing about what I hear.
