So I’m starting a music blog.
I’m doing this for a number of reasons. After college ended, I started working a 9-5 and now only have certain hours of the day to really indulge in music. I felt trapped. I couldn’t spend twenty minutes talking about John Mayer’s guitar playing or Kanye’s production at work without raising a few eyebrows for wasting company time (which I totally get). I missed having my radio show and the interaction with listeners.
Music was now only shared and enjoyed in groups after work and on the weekends. I hated the idea that someone could limit me and that after music had connected me to so many others, I ultimately I felt alone.
I’m always thinking about music so why not write about it? I’ve always wanted to keep a running list of albums/projects I’ve listened to and how I liked them after really digesting them so why not write those reactions somewhere so that my friends can see and share their thoughts?
All in all if you know anything at all about me it’s that my life revolves around music. It’s sad that I can’t see everyone in my life under the same circumstances that I had once seen them – so this is for you. And me. This gives you something I did on my own time with a little piece of me that you can read or interact with on your own time. I hope that this helps connect me to a lot of people I’ve lost touch with. If not at least there’s the music.
