Isn’t that what we’re always looking for? You never know where the next huge phenomenon or slowly-building movement is coming from, and that’s part of what makes this whole experience interesting. Add to that all of the different perspectives of people looking at what’s blowing up, what’s up and coming, or what’s on the way out, and it’s never boring. That’s what has pulled me into the whole concept of blogging, and that’s what I intend to do.
So it’s a new year, and there are a lot of changes going on. New president, new seasons of TV shows (Battlestar, anyone?), new jobs, new challenges, new achievements. For me, next week starts a new chapter in education, with the beginning of my Masters work. Over the past few days, I’ve tried to put things into perspective with what I’m doing and where I’m going, and it can be a daunting task. And then, right in the middle of it, XO really puts an additional oomph on what really matters. Talk about timing.
So here’s the direction of this blog…there is none. While it’s great that folks stop by and read and comment, I can’t blog about stuff that I don’t have a passion for. It just doesn’t connect. For those of you who that statement doesn’t chase off, though, I hope you feel that passion coming through in whatever subject I feel drawn to at that moment. Granted, I get a little over-excited on certain topics (the Shayne Ward posts WILL continue), but overall, I like getting down to the meat of not only the music itself, but its impact on myself and the music-loving public as a whole. There are several people who do the chart posts well and thorough, so I’d rather focus on trends and footnotes. You may not see a post every day, but when you do, I hope it reinforces my “quality over quantity” mantra.
Thanks for coming along for the ride. This stuff would all be rolling around in my head anyway, so why not share it and put it out there for discussion? What fun is music if you can’t share it with someone else?
