I Haz A Blog

I just started a blog, and I wonder how many followers I can chalk up. Long ago I was told I needed a blog, and at the time I didn't want one, because I felt like no one would read it, and I still feel like no one would read it. But Nathan said to me today, "Of course people will read it, you're you." And that finally convinced me, though I'm not sure why. Maybe I just thought It would be fun to see if he were right, or if I'm really as boring as I think I am and only get a few followers.

In order for me to do something like this, I need a goal. If I were to set up a blog with no purpose, the blog would die. So I began thinking about what I could possibly write about, and I decided upon this idea that I think is super cool. And you all have to let me know what you think about it

I love music, so it has to be about music.

I'm gonna begin going through my entire music library on my computer (about 8500 songs) by the release date on the albums, and start blogging on the albums one at a time, starting at 1992. I'll be going through the albums I love and posting small "reviews" I guess you could call them, pictures, and probably a crazy amount of videos, most of which will probably be live, because I love watching bands play their music live sometimes. So I invite you all to follow, and to keep track of my blog and let me know if I miss any albums that you think were super awesome. Probably as I begin each year I'll let you know what albums I have from that year that I want to blog on, and then the posts afterwards will expand on those.

Please give me feedback as soon as possible, since I don't want to waste too much time on a blog no one is gonna read... 'cause that would be silly.

I'm hoping that by doing this I'll be able to introduce a whole bunch of people to a whole bunch of great music, and hopefully learn about a whole bunch of new stuff myself.

I don't have much for 1992, but I thought it would be a good starting spot. The albums coming up will be:
The Best of The Talking Heads
Back To Front - Lionel Richie
Bone Machine - Tom Waits
Greatest Hits - Queen

If there are more albums from 1992 that you love, send me a comment, so that I can look it up! And please remember to become a follower, or let me know you want to keep track, so that I can feel a little bit better about this project.


  1. :D I think it's a GREAT idea! :D I like reading your reviews about music.

  2. Sounds like fun from a great guy!

  3. Wow, that's a high goal to achieve, but keep at it and it'll be awesome! Count me in as a follower! I'm looking forward to discovering new music. I bet half the music already in my library was introduced to me by you. :P

  4. More than half of mine. :P Probably like nine tenths of it.

  5. This sounds like an awesome idea. How about this: I'll continue to follow your blog if you follow mine? Seems fair, right?

    I need more music so this'll help me a bunch.
