I "get into" things pretty easily. I am pretty interested in a lot of things and extremely interested in a good hand-full of things that end up taking 90% of my time. I really like cool things. Like aviator glasses and The Mamas and The Papas (the quintessential cool band). However, I feel like I always jump on the band wagon of "cool things" fairly late in the game. When it comes to "discovering" things that i really like or get really in to, it seems like there are already loads of people who have been riding the same wave for a long time.
This does not bother me. I've never been one to fret when other people begin to like the same thing as me, even if I had been a fan for a long ol' time. (except in the case Death Cab for Cutie, they were soooo much better before people actually liked them). No, I really enjoy sharing the things I like with the people who will appreciate them. Which is why we're here.
I used to think that blogging was incredibly vane. And I still do. But, more important than my desire to feel validated when billions of humans religiously memorize passages from these web pages, is the desire to promote things that I think are cool. There will mostly be music and the musicians that create it, art and artists that I know and love, and a tid-bits here-and-there about my family, pals, projects, and goings-on.
Its gonna be fun.
