It gives me a forum to write about stuff that I would usually think of and only scratch the surface of. It is here that I am able to go in depth and explore topics and what have you. I would like to say that being on Tumblr has made me a better write but I really don’t know if it has, but I can dream. I would like to think that writing on here, with all my reviews, have improved over the course of starting that up so many months ago. When it comes to the personal stuff, it kind of has but not really replaced a journal, thats not an accurate word for it but lets roll with it, of interesting thoughts and ideas that have crossed my mind. It is nice to get it out, write about it and give it a little more depth than “Oh thats interesting” and leave it at that. If you have read my stuff, reviews and personal jingo jango, I can only hope that I have made you think and brought a smile to your face.
As of late I have put music, and the pursuit of cool new tunes, on the back-burner. I have been preoccuped with all the films that have come out over the past few months, it is award season, and over break I got into a whole lot of new shows. Nevertheless, music was listened to and digested, but I was never searching like I used to; I was never always browsing around for the cool new band to take me away to some faraway sonic dreamscape where anything was possible. I was never in need to be taken away to a land where the sounds of guitars, synths, bass lines and what not were the air beneath my wings. Today I downloaded some free EP’s and will make my way through them. I am just extremely excited to declare myself back in the hunt for some interesting new tunes, the journey is always the best part when it comes to finding a new band. Whether it be a blog, word of mouth or a good old print magazine, what every the medium may be, my ears are always the winners in the end.
