Introductory Post

Hello there.

I've decided to go ahead and make this a regularly (in the loose sense of the term) updated music blog. Because really, there aren't enough music blogs on the Internet (yes, that's sarcasm you smell). This is partially motivated by a colleague's recent blog - check out Minds Like Knives, wherein said colleague pontificates about music and popular culture.

Anyhow, that sort of pushed me to try to make this a proper blog, rather than an annually updated repository for my year-end mixes. What can you expect to see here in the future? Music rants. Recent discoveries, contemporary and antiquated. Random music videos from YouTube. Reviews. Track lists for mixes I've made. Commentary on mixes others have made for me. Reactionary accounts of happenings in the world of popular music (I can guarantee a post-Superbowl post on Prince's halftime show). Interesting artists found on myspace. Mp3 links. And anything else that strikes my fancy regarding music.

I don't expect this blog to reach beyond my circle of friends. As I alluded earlier, this is one of who knows how many music blogs. But it's something to occupy myself when I don't feel like reading/writing/researching/prepping for class/etc. So here's to it. Look for the first legitimate entry soon.

I am very much looking forward to this, particulary the reviews and mp3 links, which you regularly e-mail me anyway. Now, I just have to get myself motivated to actually download and organize stuff. Anyway, I'll be readin'.

Also, I thought that Stooges song was actually quite good. Hopefully a sign of things to come.
